Support Your Gut Health, Immune System, and Recovery with Glutamine
Glutamine is technically classified as a non-essential amino acid since the body can produce it endogenously. Glutamine is also found in various protein-rich foods, such as dairy, meat, tofu, poultry, and fish.
However, many would argue that glutamine is at least conditionally essential since there are specific times when the body could benefit from having more than it can synthesize on its own, such as illness, injury, or extreme stress (i.e. intense exercise & dieting). Furthermore, glutamine is one of the most abundant amino acids in the body and is involved in a lot more than just muscle protein synthesis.
Glutamine plays a crucial role in your immune, gastrointestinal, and musculoskeletal systems. In fact, supplementing with glutamine may be even more beneficial for immune function and gut health than enhancing muscle recovery. Some evidence suggests that glutamine utilization of immune and gastrointestinal cells is higher than glucose. This indicates that glutamine is the preferred fuel source for these cells, which is quite different from any other system in the body. The majority of other cells primarily use glucose as opposed to glutamine.
Glutamine is considered to be essential for a number of immune functions, such as lymphocyte proliferation, cytokine production, neutrophil activity, and macrophages phagocytosis. All of these functions are important for identifying and removing foreign pathogens, which help prevent illness. Therefore, individuals with suppressed immune systems would likely benefit the most from glutamine supplementation.In terms of gut health, glutamine is also a primary fuel source for several cells that reside in the gastrointestinal lining.
Glutamine is necessary for the conservation of gut villi, which are responsible for inhibiting bacteria from entering the body. Moreover, glutamine is involved in enterocyte proliferation, regulation of tight junction proteins, suppression of pro-inflammatory signaling pathways, and is a powerful antioxidant that protects healthy cells from oxidative stress.
In summary, supplementing with glutamine may improve recovery, promote gut health, and support immune system function.

For most people, we recommend taking 5-10 grams of glutamine per day. Some people may see additional gut health benefits, taking upwards of 20 grams a day split between 2-4 doses.
If your diet is lacking in glutamine, which is common for vegans and vegetarians, supplementing with glutamine may be very beneficial for recovery.
