Glutamine, also called l-glutamine, is an amino acid, one of the most abundant in the human body.  It is one of the three amino acids that make glutathione, the main detoxifier of the body.

Besides it’s detox function, it is used to nourish and support the lining of the gut.  It is also used by athletes for muscle recovery.

Glutamine can be taken directly as a powder or pill.  Its flavor is neutral and easy to take.

Glutamine is a chemical cousin of glutamate, which has both positive effects, and negative effects such as in monosodium glutamate. It is also a cousin of GABA, a multi-functional molecule that is considered calming. Medications such as Valium and Baclofen work in part by acting on GABA receptors in the brain and nerves.
