L-Glutamine is an amino acid produced naturally in the human body that serves as a protein building block. Proteins are required for the structure, function and regulation of the body’s tissues and organs. L-Glutamine is naturally present in foods including meat, poultry, seafood (sardines, crab, lobster), dairy (milk, yogurt, eggs), vegetables (cabbage, spinach, kale, parsley) and seeds (pumpkin, chia). It serves as a fuel source for immune cells and contributes to intestinal health.
