AST Sports Science, GL3, L-Glutamine, Micronized, 42.33 oz (1200 g)30 Reviews
Expiration Date: Jan 2016
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Glutamine represents over 63% of the amino acid content in the amino acid pool of muscle tissue. Intense training and exercise put greater demands on your body for Glutamine, making it a conditionally essential amino acid.
New Micronized GL3 L-Glutamine represents a leap forward in Glutamine supplementation. GL3 uses a state-of-the-art Particle Micronization Technology (PMT). Each tiny particle of GL3 is 20 times smaller than regular Glutamine Powder. This allows for ultra-fast absorption and utilization.
Glutamine is the most common amino acid in the body and is key to the metabolism and maintenance of muscle tissue. Glutamine is also the highest concentrated amino acid in the muscle cell and acts as a primary shuttle for nitrogen from the bloodstream to inside the muscle cell. Glutamine has a multifaceted role in human nutrition and is essential for the support of muscle tissue and immune function.
As a dietary supplement, mix 2 teaspoons (10 grams) in 6 to 8 oz of water or juice. Drink 1 serving 30 minutes before training and 1 serving 30 minutes after training.
Contents packaged by weight - not volume. Some settling may occur.

iHerb Customer Reviews
Excellent Glutamine. As everything that AST made.
After a few days of using 7.5g to 10g, I noticed that I had difficulty urinating, got headaches, my colds got worse, lost my appetite and the main reason why I stopped using L-Glutamine was because it caused depression and anxiety. All the symptoms alleviated after I stopped using this product. I've later read that L-Glutamine can be converted to excitotoxin in the brain and disrupts neurons, which would explain the depression and anxiety.
