Document Abstract:
Glutamine, the most abundant and extensively studied non-essential amino acid in the body, is mainly synthesised and released by muscle. Overworked muscle after prolonged exercise may fail to supply adequate glutamine for normal immune function. This article explores the effect exercise can have on the immune system and how supplemental glutamine may be beneficial.
