GLOSSARY
L-GLUTAMIC ACID

L-Glutamic Acid

 

How does it work?

L-Glutamic acid is a non-essential amino acid known for its role as an excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain and spinal cord that increases the firing of neurons in the central nervous system, and can be converted into GABA or glutamine.1 Glutamic acid is involved in the metabolism of sugars and fats, and assists potassium to cross the blood-brain barrier.2 When required, glutamic acid can bind with nitrogen during conversion into glutamine which detoxifies and protects the brain of cell damaging ammonia.3 This protective function can improve long and short term memory, and low glutamic acid levels have been linked in those with exhaustion and cognitive brain dysfunctions.4 Therapeutically, glutamic acid has assisted in treating personality and behavioural disorders, epilepsy, muscular dystrophy, ulcers and diabetic complications such as hypoglycaemic coma.5

What results can be expected?

Glutamic acid may assist those with exhaustion and cognitive dysfunction such as anxiety, tension and sleep disturbances through converting into GABA, a calming neurotransmitter.6 Glutamic acid may therefore also assist in treating stress and improve concentration levels.7
