    Glutamine has recently been the focus of much scientific interest. A growing body of evidence suggests that during certain stressful times‚ the body may require more Glutamine than it can produce. Under these circumstances Glutamine may be considered a "conditionally essential" amino acid. Glutamine is involved in maintaining a positive nitrogen balance (an anabolic state) and also aids rapidly growing cells (immune system lymphocytes and intestinal cell enterocytes). In addition‚ Glutamine is a regulator of acid-base balance and a nitrogen transporter.

    L-Glutamine helps to heal intestines

    I discovered I am highly sensitive to gluten. When I stopped eating gluten I needed to heal my gut so I started taking 2 HLC Mindlinx probiotics (which contain L-Glutamine) a day along with 1-500 mg L-Glutamine capsule. L-Glutamine really helps the healing process and after only 4 months on both of these products I am fully healed. I take it now for maintenance. I feel really good so I must be doing something right!

    Pros

      These capsules are easy to take and I suffer no side effects. I often have side effects or hot flashes/night sweats when I take some supplements and especially medicines. I dont get any from this product.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Why L-Glutamine?

    I use L-Glutamine because my doctor highly recommended it for me for my immune system lack of energy "brain fog" and digestive problems including difficulty digesting or utilizing proteins. A person should talk to his or her doctor and read about L-Glutamine before taking it however. Some MDs may not be knowledgeable about L-Glutamines benefits for people other than body-builders. You might try reading what alternative medicine says about L-Glutamine 500 mg for a more rounded view. immune system. In addition L-glutamine appears to play a role in brain function and digestion. major fuel source & therefor energy source for the entire body. helpful with focus concentration memory intellectual performance alertness attentiveness improving mood & eliminating brain fog Certain bacteria fungi & parasites can also impair the intestinal lining disrupting the optimal intestinal barrier functioning & causing increased intestinal permeability ( the leaky gut syndrome). With increased permeability there can be increased allergy reactions to foods & increased predisposition to autoimmune problems. CRITICAL IN PROTEIN METABOLISM

    Pros

      It is described as "very important for me" by my doctor. It is easy to take Not expensive

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
