L-Glutamine occurs as white crystals or a crystalline powder. It is soluble in water and practically insoluble in alcohol and in ether. Its solutions are acid to litmus. It melts with decomposition at about 185°C.
Glutamine is one of the twenty non basic amino acids, which does not mean that glutamine is not important, but because the human body can produce this substance by itself, which can be synthesized by glutamic acid, valine and isoleucine. Sixty percent of our glutamine is found in the muscles attached to our bones, and the rest is in the lungs, liver, brain and stomach.
Glutamine is used as nutritional supplement and flavoring supplement in food processing. And L-glutamine is an important nutritional supplement for bodybuilding enthusiasts. Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid in muscle, accounting for about 60% of the total free amino acid in human body. Under normal conditions, the human body can produce excessive glutamine to meet the needs. However, when the pressure is high, the glutamine reserve will be exhausted, and then it needs to be replenished by ingesting supplements.
