L-Glutamine - While it is found abundantly in muscle tissue, LGlutamine is an amino acid that’s absolutely necessary for normal cerebral function. It can readily pass through the blood-brain barrier that protects the brain, earning the nickname “brain fuel”. Glutamine is unique from other amino acids in that it contains two nitrogen atoms per molecule instead of one. Because of this unique molecular structure it’s an effective ammonia scavenger, helping to clear excess levels from tissues. Ammonia is especially harmful to brain tissue. Glutamine also promotes the production of GABA and assists your body in maintaining a normal acid/alkaline balance.
