Glutamine is a non-essential amino acid and naturally occurs in the human body. It circulates round the body in the blood and helps to build and repair muscle. Hence why it is used by those recovering from sports injuries, burns and superficial wounds, as well as being favoured by weight lifters, body builders and heavy trainers. Similarly, Glutamine is excellent for maintaining gut health. It is known as the "gut restorer" as it re-fuels the cells in the lining of the small intestine.
Glutamine is naturally found in chicken, fish, beef, eggs, dairy products, wheat, certain vegetables and parsley.
