... Kidney problems are invariably made worse when a person is overweight and especially when their blood sugar levels begin to rise, as excess blood sugar caramelizes kidney structure (advanced glycation end products- AGEs), leading to even worse kidney health. A new study shows that glutamine can improve multiple gene signals that impact kidney health, helping to improve many of the kidney problems people experience when they are in weakening health. Glutamine is highly concentrated in the lining of your digestive tract and in your muscles. As a supplement it can be ...

Inflammation and Foveolar Hyperplasia Are Reduced by Supplemental Dietary Glutamine during Helicobacter pylori Infection in Mice.
... Study Title: Glutamine and Ulcers Study Abstract We recently showed that L-Gln protects cultured gastric cells from ammonia-induced cell death and predicted that Gln may also protect during Helicobacter pylori infection in vivo. Thus, the aim of this study was to test whether supplemental dietary Gln protects against H. pylori-associated pathology. For this, C57BL/6 mice were fed a purified diet consisting of 20.3% protein (1.9% Gln), 66% carbohydrate, and 5% fat or 25.3% protein (5% supplemental L-Gln; 6.9% ...
Clinical Use of Glutamine Supplementation
... Study Title: Times of Increased Glutamine Need Study Abstract Endogenous production of glutamine may become insufficient during critical illness. The shortage of glutamine is reflected as a decrease in plasma concentration, which is a prognostic factor for poor outcome in sepsis. Because glutamine is a precursor for nucleotide synthesis, rapidly dividing cells are most likely to suffer from a shortage. Therefore, exogenous glutamine supplementation is necessary. In particular, when i.v. nutrition is given, extra glutamine supplementation becomes critical, because most present formulations for i.v. use do ...
Glutamine and the immune system.
... Study Title: Glutamine is Vital for Healthy Immunity Study Abstract Glutamine is utilised at a high rate by cells of the immune system in culture and is required to support optimal lymphocyte proliferation and production of cytokines by lymphocytes and macrophages. Macrophage-mediated phagocytosis is influenced by glutamine availability. Hydrolysable glutamine dipeptides can substitute for glutamine to support in vitro lymphocyte and macrophage functions. In man plasma and skeletal muscle glutamine levels are lowered by sepsis, injury, burns, surgery and endurance exercise and in the overtrained athlete. The lowered plasma glutamine concentrations ...

Glutamine is one of the most abundant amino acids found in maternal milk and it is essential for the function of immune system cells such as macrophages. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of glutamine supplementation on the function of peritoneal macrophages and on hemopoiesis in early-weaned mice inoculated with Mycobacterium bovis bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG). Mice were weaned at 14 d of age and distributed to ...

Numerous studies show that the amino acid glutamine7 is the vital amino acid that determines whether your muscles will break down excessively (inflammatory and catabolic) or rejuvenate and repair (anabolic and fitness). Glutamine is also the most important amino acid for the rapid production of immune cell troops8. It was recently demonstrated that glutamine significantly boosted the function of immune troops within your digestive tract.

... and leaky gut. Supplementing with l-glutamine could be a way to avoid this tissue breakdown. Along with supporting the digestive system, l-glutamine also plays a role in maintaining lean muscle mass and preventing immune suppression that can sometimes be caused by over-training. The primary reserve for glutamine in the body is muscle tissue. After intense workouts, the glutamine levels in your body drop significantly. This can actually suppress immune function and create a'muscle wasting' state. Therefore, adding extra glutamine to the diet may be beneficial if you want ...

A clinician's view.Study Abstract There is a gap between the scientific basis of the claim that in several disease states glutamine is lacking and the widespread belief that supplementation of glutamine to the nutritional regimen is beneficial in severely ill patients. Glutamine shortage exists when consuming tissues, playing a crucial role in the response to trauma and disease, receive insufficient amounts of glutamine. In these tissues (immune system, wound), glutamine is only partly oxidized but has ...

Study Title: Glutamine is a Vital Amino Acid for Muscle Strength and Immunity Study Abstract Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid in human muscle and plasma and is utilised at high rates by rapidly dividing cells, including leucocytes, to provide energy and optimal conditions for nucleotide biosynthesis. As such, it is considered to be essential for proper immune function. During various catabolic states including surgical trauma, infection, starvation and prolonged exercise, glutamine homeostasis is placed under stress.

Nonnutritive Effects of Glutamine1
... Study Title: The Many Uses of Glutamine Study Abstract Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid of the human body. Besides its role as a constituent of proteins and its importance in amino acid transamination, glutamine has regulatory capacity in immune and cell modulation. Glutamine deprivation reduces proliferation of lymphocytes, influences expression of surface activation markers on lymphocytes and monocytes, affects the production of cytokines, and stimulates apoptosis. Moreover, glutamine administration seems to have a positive effect on glucose metabolism in the state of insulin resistance. Glutamine influences ...

Study Title: Glutamine supplementation stimulates muscle health in diabetes Study Abstract In this study, we investigated the effect of glutamine (Gln) supplementation on the signaling pathways regulating protein synthesis and protein degradation in the skeletal muscle of rats with streptozotocin (STZ) -induced diabetes. The expression levels of key regulatory proteins in the synthetic pathways (Akt, mTOR, GSK3 and 4E-BP1) and the degradation pathways (MuRF-1 and MAFbx) were determined using real-time PCR and Western blotting in four groups of male Wistar rats; 1) control ...

Study Title: The effects of oral glutamine supplementation on exercise-induced gastrointestinal permeability Study Abstract Chronic glutamine supplementation reduces exercise-induced intestinal permeability and inhibits the NF-κB pro-inflammatory pathway in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells. These effects were correlated with activation of HSP70. The purpose of this paper is to test if an acute dose of oral glutamine prior to exercise reduces intestinal permeability along with activation of the heat shock response leading to inhibition of pro-inflammatory markers. Physically active subjects (N= 7) completed baseline and exercise intestinal permeability tests, determined by the ...

Study Title: Glutamine Supplementation Improves Intestinal Permeability Dysfunction Study Abstract Although a profound barrier dysfunction has been reported, little is known about the pathophysiological mechanism evoking gastrointestinal graft-vs. host disease (GI-GvHD) and apparent therapeutic options. The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of oral glutamine on the course of GI-GvHD in an acute semiallogenic graft-vs. host disease (GvHD) in irradiated B6D2F1 mice. An acute semiallogenic GvHD was induced by intraperitoneal injection of lymphocytes from C57BL/6 mice to irradiated B6D2F1 mice. Half of the GvHD animals ...
