A different side to L-Glutamine
Plasma glutamine levels may decrease by 58% during critical illness and remain depleted for up to 3 weeks!! ( Wischmeyer, 2003)
In ACUTE STRESS, the demands of l-glutamine outweigh the self renewal property of it; resulting in a fall in plasma glutamine; burns, injuries, trauma, heavy resistant exercise, etc.
Confronted with this scenario? Consider taking L-Glutamine per you trusted clinician's advice!
