What is Glutamine?

Glutamine is the amino acid with the greatest presence in the human body.

It is a non-essential amino acid, because the body can synthesize it, but it can be promoted to conditionally essential in certain situations, such as diseases.

It is normally sold as a supplement to increase muscle mass, anti-catabolic and improve muscle recovery.

It may be beneficial for those who practice resistance/long-term exercise or for vegetarian diets, as for healthy people, so far the studies are not very promising and the effects are questionable.
