Glutamine has recently been the focus of much scientific interest. A growing body of evidence suggests that under certain circumstances, the body may require more glutamine than it can produce. During these times glutamine may be considered a “conditionally essential” amino acid. Glutamine is involved in maintaining a positive nitrogen balance (an anabolic state) and acts as the primary fuel for rapidly growing cells (immune system and intestinal cells). In addition, glutamine is also a major nitrogen transporter and helps to regulate the body’s acid-base balance. NPN 80002659.
