L-glutamine, often referred to as simply glutamine, is an amino acid nutrient with so many benefits, it's hard to classify as a supplement. NOW L-Glutamine capsules aren't as popular as their glutamine powder, but for many people who don't use high doses of glutamine, the convenience of NOW L-Glutamine capsules offsets the price savings of NOW glutamine powder. The glutamine in NOW L-Glutamine capsules is otherwise exactly the same as their glutamine powder, and serves all the same functions such as supporting muscle mass, intestinal health, immune function, pH balance and much more. Use NOW L-Glutamine whenever you're trying to increase body mass, such as when weight training or recovering from illness or injuries. With NOW's unsurpassed reputation for the best raw materials and finished products, you can't make a better choice of glutamine capsule than NOW L-Glutamine 1000mg.
Glutamine has recently been the focus of much scientific interest. A growing body of evidence suggests that during certain stressful times, the body may require more glutamine than it can produce. Under these circumstances Glutamine may be considered a "conditionally essential" amino acid. Glutamine is involved in maintaining a positive nitrogen balance (an anabolic state) and also aids rapidly growing cells (immune system hymphocytes and intestinal cell enterocytes). In addition, Glutamine is a regulator of acid-base balance and a nitrogen transporter.
