Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid in your body, and is conditionally-essential at certain times meaning that sometimes your body can't make enough for what you need. Your muscles are especially high in glutamine making it extremely important for muscle metabolism. When you're training hard your muscles can lose up to 50% of their glutamine stores so you need to replace them - fast! Without sufficient glutamine you can't absorb BCAAs and other important amino acids into your muscle cells as quickly as you should.
On top of that, glutamine is an energy source for intestinal and immune cells. In the intestines it is important for maintaining the barrier between the intestines and the rest of your body to prevent food intolerances and allergies.
