L-glutamine is an amino acid which is a building block for body proteins. It is the most abundant amino acid in the body, arguably the most important and has incredible functions and benefits.

It is also involved in the production of glutathione (major body protector especially against cancer), glucosamine (major joint protector) and vitamin B3 (cholesterol controller)… Read more
