Applications

L-Glutamine is involved in many metabolic processes and regulates acid-base balance in the kidney. It is an important amino acid for the incorporation of ammonium ions into biomolecules. It is a vital component of culture media that serves as a major energy source for cells in culture. As a component in oral supplementation, it is useful for patients who have advanced stages of cancer to reverse cachexia (i.e. muscle wasting). It is also used for attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a urinary condition called cystinuria, sickle cell anemia and for alcohol withdrawal support. It finds applications in patients with HIV (AIDS) to prevent weight loss.
