Thorne Research’s L-Glutamine capsules deliver one of the most valuable free amino acids to the body. Glutamine is generated mainly in the skeletal muscles‚ and then released into the bloodstream. It subsequently moves to areas in need‚ which include the kidneys‚ lungs‚ brain‚ skeletal muscles‚ immune system‚ liver‚ and gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Glutamine is critical to preserving optimal immune response‚ intestinal functioning‚ and the homeostasis of amino acid—even during times of extreme stress.
L-Glutamine by Thorne Research helps you by:
The skeletal muscle has the greatest intracellular concentration of the L-glutamine‚ with up to 60 percent of your body’s total storage. However‚ the greatest user of glutamine is the gastrointestinal tract‚ due to the fact that glutamine offers the principal fuel for the nutrient-absorbing cells lining the small intestine’s walls.
The functioning of the enterocytes of the small intestine can be affected by various stress-related factors‚ such as infections‚ chemotherapy‚ malnutrition‚ or trauma; any of them can hinder efficient absorption. In numerous research studies involving animals‚ supplementation with glutamine led to improvements in permeability and overall immune function in the gut.
It has been shown that‚ under certain circumstances‚ your body’s tissues may need more glutamine than the amount you can either produce naturally or get through diet. Physical injury‚ stress‚ infection‚ and certain medications can cause a decrease in the concentration of glutamine.

Its products are commonly used in prestigious research studies‚ and are recommended by many doctors and health care practitioners.
