Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid and is the most abundant free amino acid in the body . It is found in high amounts in animal protein and dairy products. Diets with low consumption of these proteins may have lower amounts of Glutamine than what is suggested . Glutamine is produced in the muscles and used as fuel by many cells in the body . Most notably, critical components of the immune system may use Glutamine in addition to glucose, especially in times of infection .
