L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, found primarily in the muscles and lungs. It removes waste from the body, such as ammonia, and promotes immune health. Since the stress hormone cortisol reduces glutamine levels, supplementing ensures adequate levels for endurance athletes. It has also been used to enhance the recovery of surgery patients, treat gastrointestinal and mood disorders, and prevent infection.
