Glutamine is one of the 20 naturally occurring amino acids in dietary
protein, specifically, it is a conditionally essential amino acid (being elevated
to essential during periods of disease and muscle wasting typical of physical

dietary meats and eggs. It is found in very high levels in both whey and casein protein.
