Glutamine: Synthesized in the Brain... If You Breathe Correctly

CO2 model CO2, apart from the previously considered regulation of glutamine synthesis, participates in chemical reactions involving metabolism of various vitamins, minerals, proteins, amino acids, lipids, carbohydrates, and many other substances.

Since the majority of people have low brain and body-oxygen levels due to ineffective breathing (see links at the bottom of the page), it is normal that many of these chemical reactions are distorted. For example, hypoxic cells generate free radicals, favor chronic inflammation and an acidic cellular environment. As a result, ineffective breathing adversely affects dozens, and maybe even hundreds, of chemical reactions in the human body.

Amino acids: arginine, glutamine, cystein, etc.Therefore, the metabolism of proteins, lipids and carbohydrates, the efficiency of the immune system, regulation of hormones, blood sugar level, and many other chemicals, are all connected to breathing. Clinical experience of about 200 Russian Buteyko MDs suggests that many serious abnormalities in the metabolism of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates appear when a person has less than 20 seconds for the DIY body-oxygen test.

The following is a link to the scientific paper that provides exact formulas for some of these chemical reactions involving crucial body chemicals. The article "The Role of Carbon Dioxide in the Vital Processes of the organism" (Kazarinov, 1991) has Peter Kolb's (Biomed Eng) comments in {...} brackets.
