Thorne Research L-Glutamine Powder Product Information
L-glutamine is the most prevalent amino acid in the bloodstream. It is found in high concentration in skeletal muscle and lung, liver, brain, and gastrointestinal tissues.* Skeletal muscle contains the greatest intracellular concentration of glutamine, comprising up to 60 percent of total body glutamine stores, and muscle is the primary storage depot and exporter of glutamine to other tissues. However, the gastrointestinal tract is the greatest user of glutamine in the body because glutamine provides the primary fuel for the nutrient-absorbing cells that line the walls of the small intestine.* Various stressors such as trauma, infection, malnutrition, chemotherapy, and others can impact the normal function of the enterocytes of the small intestine by adversely affecting how substances are absorbed.* For example, when gut permeability is impaired it can allow large protein molecules to diffuse across the intestine that would otherwise not and enter the bloodstream.* The body can identify these large protein molecules as foreign and mount an immune reaction against them, which can result in the development of food allergies.*
