L-glutamine breakdown
Apr 20, 2000

I understand that l-glutamine dissolved into water will breakdown after about 45 minutes. Is this true? Does it need to be ingested immediately after mixing, and if not, how soon after?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Most amino acids will undergo hydrolysis in water after a time. The time depends on the temperature and each one is different. I would follow the directions on the package. Douglas T. Dieterich, M.D.

Wasting and running..........
