- Protects the gut lining and heals ulcers
- Metabolic fuel for cells in small intestine
- Primary energy source for the immune system
- Improves metabolism and muscle building
L-Glutamine powder is an essential amino acid supplement that is anti-inflammatory and necessary for the growth and repair of your intestinal lining. Glutamine benefits include acting as a protector: coating your cell walls and acting as a repellent to irritants.
Depletion of Glutamine results in villus atrophy, decreased expression of tight junction proteins and increased intestinal permeability. Moreover, L-glutamine supplementation can improve gut barrier function in several experimental conditions of injury and in some clinical situations
Our Glutamine powder is suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians and the option to have corn-free.
The most relevant glutamine-producing tissue is the muscle mass, accounting for about 90% of all glutamine synthesised. Glutamine is also released, in small amounts by the lung and the brain. Although the liver is capable of relevant glutamine synthesis, its role in glutamine metabolism is more regulatory than producing, since the liver takes up large amounts of glutamine derived from the gut.
L-Glutamine: Improves gastrointestinal health because it is a vital nutrient for the intestines to rebuild and repair, Helps heal ulcers and leaky gut by acting as a band-aid for protection from further damage, Is an essential neurotransmitter in the brain and helps with memory, focus and concentration, L-glutamine improves IBS and diarrhea by balancing mucus production which results in healthy bowel movements, Promotes muscle growth and decreases muscle wasting, Improves metabolism and cellular detoxification, Curbs cravings for sugar and alcohol, Fights tumors, improves diabetes and blood sugar.
There is ample evidence to indicate that L-glutamine is the essential dietary supplement to help maintain mucosal integrity and barrier function under physiologic and pathophysiologic conditions. Human gut has little capacity to synthesise Glutamine and therefore it relies on the glutamine supply by other tissues and diet. Over the last decades of clinical trials of glutamine supplementation in critical illness, surgical stress and cancer have shown significant benefit by reducing the rate of mortality, length of hospital stay and infectious morbidity. Parenteral glutamine administration (>0.25–0.3g/kg/day) demonstrated the greatest benefit in hospitalized patients (source).
Therefore, a growing body of evidence advocates the use of L-glutamine in the clinical practice. Further understanding and application of glutamine-based therapeutics can be enhanced by future studies geared toward our understanding of the molecular mechanisms associated with glutamine-mediated protection of gastrointestinal epithelial tight junctions and the mucosal barrier function (source)
Suggested Use: Take 1-2 teaspoons per day (morning and before bed) or 6g per day for intensive healing, mix with liquid or with food. Use with Aloe Vera, Slippery Elm, Marshmallow & Probiotics to heal Leaky Gut or see our combined Glutamine-based Heal Ur Gut™ drink & capsules.
ALLERGENS: NO: Yeast, Corn (optional), Wheat, Maize, Soy, Milk, Salt, Sugar, Preservatives, Flavours, Sweeteners, Magnesium Stearate or GMO’s.
