Functions:

Glumatine is known to aid in protein synthesis, immune function and serves as an anti-inflammatory. It occurs naturally in the body and sources include beef, chicken, fish, eggs, milk, dairy products, wheat, cabbage, beets, beans, spinach, and parsley (Source). As an immune booster and antioxidant, Glutamine can condition and heal the skin when applied topically.

According to The University of Maryland Medical Center, when the body is stressed (such as from injuries, infections, burns, trauma, or surgical procedures), steroid hormones, such as cortisol, are released into the bloodstream. Elevated cortisol levels can deplete glutamine stores in the body. Since glutamine plays a key role in the immune system, a deficiency in this nutrient can significantly slow the healing process. Clinical studies have reported that glutamine supplements or topical ointments enhance the immune system and reduce infections and may also aid in the recovery of severe burns or wounds.

Safety Measures/Side Effects:

Because Glutamine occurs naturally in the body, there are no known adverse side effects to this ingredient.
