Physical Information of L-glutamine
L-Glutamine is an essential amino acid that is a crucial component that works as a major energy source for cells. L-Glutamine is very stable as a dry powder and as a frozen solution. In liquid media or stock solutions, however, L-glutamine degrades relatively rapidly. Optimal cell performance usually requires supplementation of the media with L-glutamine prior to use.

Where to use L-glutamine
- L-Glutamine is the most prevalent amino acid in the bloodstream.- L-Glutamine is involved in more metabolic processes than any other amino acid.
- L-Glutamine is converted to glucose when more glucose is required by the body as an energy source.
- L-Glutamine also plays a part in maintaining proper blood glucose levels and the right pH range.
- L-Glutamine serves as a source of fuel for cells lining the intestines. Without it, these cells waste away.
- L-Glutamine is also used by white blood cells and is important for immune function.
- L-Glutamine assists in maintaining the proper acid/alkaline balance in the body, and is the basis of the
building blocks for the synthesis of RNA and DNA.
