Optimum Nutrition Glutamine is considered a conditionally-essential amino acid. It is not considered "essential", as we can synthesize it. However, L-Glutamine is considerd conditionally essential, meaning that under certain circumstances, we may not be able to produce enough to maintain health, such as immune dysfunction, hyperpermeable intestinal mucosa ("leaky gut") and any form of physical stress, such as rigorous exercise.
It is believed that the L-Glutamine helps restore homeostasis in these situations, supporting recovery. Optimum Nutrition Glutamine is also considered brain food, as it passes through the blood brain barrier unchallanged and can be used as a fuel source, much as glucose is. Additionally, it may also be useful for immune suppression during the cortisol-related suppression seen with elite athletes and motivated exercise enthusiasts.
For a post-workout or intra-workout boost, try Optimum Glutamine Powder mixed in your amino acid formula or protein shake. Alternatively, it may be taken away from exercise in water, as the flavour is quite neutral.
