Quantum Glutamine delivers L-glutamine, which is a key amino acid that supports muscle and gastrointestinal tract health while promoting intestinal mucosa health. Glutamine is necessary in the production of glutathione, a key liver nutrient. Glutamine plays an important role in biological functions and protein synthesis and is well-researched for brain, muscle, and intestinal support, as well as appetite and cravings control.

Glutamine and the Immune System
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. Research shows that glutamine, an important amino acid, can help support your immune system by strengthening immunoglobulins, such as s-IgA, on your intestinal mucosal lining. When this mucosal lining has adequate sIgA, bacteria cannot bind to it; therefore, infection is less likely.
Secondly, glutamine can also help strengthen and increase the numbers of certain white blood cells, called lymphocytes. This also helps to support your immune system. Glutamine is considered an essential amino acid for mucosal and intestinal integrity during times of stress and during chronic illness.
Glutamine and Growth Hormone
Glutamine can be invaluable in influencing production of hGH. One study demonstrated that taking glutamine could affect muscular protein synthesis and circulating growth hormone levels. In this study, taking 2 grams of oral glutamine daily caused a significant release (more than 400%) of growth hormone in men. Although the growth hormone levels increased, the study did not measure muscle mass changes or exercise enhancement.
Another study did show the anabolic and anticatabolic effects of glutamine as it increased protein synthesis and inhibited protein breakdown. This finding could mean that supplementing with glutamine could help enhance muscle growth and improve athletic performance.
Glutamine is an essential amino acid with many effects on the body's systems. It has been used to help support many body functions.
