Thorne Research’s L-Glutamine Powder strives to provide the following health benefits:
Promotion of a strong immune system
Promotion of gastrointestinal
Support for a healthy, robust central nervous system
Essential nutrients for the fast and efficient healing of wounds
L-glutamine is the most
prevalent amino acid found in the bloodstream; the highest amounts are found in skeletal muscles, as well as the lung, liver, brain, and gastrointestinal
tissues. The skeletal muscle has the greatest intracellular concentration of the amino acid, with up to 60% of your body’s total storage. However, the biggest
user of glutamine is the gastrointestinal tract, due to the fact that glutamine offers the principal fuel for the nutrient-absorbing cells lining the small
Various stressors, including infection, chemotherapy, malnutrition, and trauma may have an impact on the functioning of the enterocytes of the small intestine; this may hinder how efficiently it absorbs substances and nutrients. In numerous research studies involving animals,
supplementation with glutamine encouraged improvements in both permeability and the gut's immune function.
It has been shown that under certain circumstances,
the body's tissues need more glutamine than the amount supplied by your diet and internal production. During periods of metabolic stress, glutamine is released
from muscles into the bloodstream to travel where it’s needed. Physical injury, stress, infection, and certain medications can cause a decrease in the
concentration of glutamine—which is why you may need a supplement like this one.
Thorne Research’s supplement provides L-Glutamine in a convenient powder form
that makes getting sufficient amounts of the amino acid easy and cost-effective. Furthermore, the exclusive formula contains no magnesium stearate or any other
preservatives, lubricants and diluents that have been shown to hinder bioavailability. L-Glutamine Powder contains none of those flowing agents in
order to ensure that its vital nutrients are readily accessible by your body.
Thorne Research strives to provide pure, high-quality supplements to people
looking to enhance their health and well-being. Its products are commonly used in prestigious research studies, and are recommended by many doctors and health
care practitioners. The company always goes the extra mile to ensure that Thorne Research dietary supplements are safe and effective for immune-compromised,

Overall Rating for L-Glutamine Powder 12 oz (340 Grams)
(based on 2 reviews)
By Sue from franklin, wisconsin on April 2, 2011
Our vet and breeder recommended this for our 7 month old cat who has tentatively been diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disorder. We give this 2x a day along with his medication and he is showing improvement. IBD takes a long time to resolve (not cure). He has only been on it a few weeks, so still need to continue for several more weeks/months to really determine full effects.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Great for dietary distress
By Dennis S. from Troutman, NC on January 23, 2011
This is a great product, first recommended to us by our kinesiologst for my wife's stomach issues about 3 years ago. The Powder has worked very well and we use it as necessary to remedy stomach troubles. The price for this product is great through Pure Formulas, but was out of stock when I last ordered.
What I like about this item is that it does what it says it will do and has no side effects of which we are aware.
There is nothing negative I can say about this product.
