Glutamine - air hunger


Senior Member
Does anyone else have problems like air hunger or difficulty breathing when supplementing with L-glutamine.

I know that glutamine can turn into glutamate that can cause inflammation.

But anyone knows the mechanism behind air hunger that is caused by glutamine, like the air you breath is not enough
