The effect of different doses of L-glutamic acid on activity of antioxidant enzymes and some blood biochemical parameters in rats under the influence of sodium nitrite was studied. It was shown that administration of sodium nitrite leads to decreased activity of antioxidant enzymes and and hemoglobin and glucose content in the blood of animals.It was established, that changes of studied parameters were less expressed in rats administered of L-glutamic acid compared to the control group of animals.
