Glutamine seems to increase the body's ability to recover. As such it is used for proper immune system functioning, interstinal health recovery, muscle recovery and exercise performance.
Typical dose for glutamine is 5g daily dissolved in any liquid but doses up to 45g has been used in research studies. You can also take it multiple times a day (e.g. 5g three times a day) depending on your needs.
If used for exercise recovery, taking it post-workout is the best time. However for all other uses, you can take it anytime, best on an empty stomach as it absorbs best. Take with food if it upsets your stomach.
Since glutamine is an amino acid present in many foods, it does not appear to have much side effects even when taken at high doses. At most you might have stomach upset. People with known kidney disease may want to watch out for excess amino acid consumption as it is thought to burden the kidneys.
