What does glutamine do?
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid (protein building block) in the body and is involved in more metabolic processes than any other amino acid. Glutamine is converted to glucose when more glucose is required by the body as an energy source. It serves as a source of fuel for cells lining the intestines. Without it, these cells waste away. It is also used by white blood cells and is important for immune function.
Where is glutamine found?
Glutamine is found in many foods high in protein, such as fish, meat, beans, and dairy products.
