Glutamine is an amino acid which can be made in the body from other amino acids and is therefore considered a non-essential amino acid. However, the body’s requirements for glutamine increases with conditions such as burns, wounds and severe illness, and the body’s capacity to synthesise glutamine may be exceeded in these, and other circumstances; then it is referred to as conditionally essential.
