Go here for a useful overview article on Glutamine including how it is used to assist people post chemotherapy and for HIV/AIDs patients.

Glutamine is also popular amongst body builders for training.

As with anything, taking your glutamine in the context of a whole food, rather than as a supplement is preferable.  Coocnut nectar with its balance of minerals, aminos acids and small amount of fructose would seem to be a perfect food in this context.
