  • Glutagenics Powder by Metagenics features three key ingredients—glutamine‚ deglycyrrhizinized licorice (DGL)‚ and aloe vera — that are included for their comprehensive support of the integrity and healthy functioning of the gastrointestinal lining.

    Glutagenics was formulated to support a healthy intestinal lining‚ which is crucial for a healthy digestive system‚ immune function and overall health. It supplies large quantities of the amino acid glutamine‚ which serves as a source of fuel and a precursor for growth to the quickly dividing cells of the intestinal lining. This powdered supplement also provides a highly concentrated licorice extract‚ which was processed to remove glycyrrhizin (a component that is known to cause adverse reactions in some people).

    Since aloe vera has been known to produce a laxative effect‚ Metagenics removed its bitter (laxative promoting) principles. Also‚ being a powder‚ Glutagenics is easy to use and allows for flexible dosing. Metagenics only includes natural flavors to ensure the best possible flavor out of its Glutagenics Powder.

    Why Glutamine?

    Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. It is among most of the amino acids that work together to build protein. Under normal circumstances‚ the body can produce all the glutamine it needs‚ but under extreme periods of physical or emotional stress‚ your body may need more glutamine than it can make naturally. Glutamine is mostly stored in muscles‚ and it is also stored in the lungs. Incidentally‚ that is also where glutamine is made by the body.

    Glutamine is essential for removing excess ammonia from the body (ammonia is a common waste product). Glutamine also helps support the immune system and is believed to play an important role in digestion and brain function.

    If you have a specific medical condition that can lower glutamine levels‚ such as surgery‚ prolonged emotional stress‚ infections or injuries‚ your body may not be producing all of the glutamine it needs.

    Why Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice?

    Licorice has been used for centuries as a medicinal remedy to treat a variety of illnesses and promote liver health. It is believed to act as a demulcent (soothing agent) and expectorant (mucous expeller). Although it is largely beneficial‚ licorice that includes glycyrrhiza can have serious side effects. This is why Metagenics has removed the glycyrrhiza from the licorice in its Glutagenics Powde; this type of licorice doesn’t seem to have the same side effects.

    Why Aloe Vera?

    When we eat‚ the stomach absorbs the nutrients from food and disposes of everything else. Our digestive systems break down the food for easy absorption with the help of beneficial bacteria in the stomach. At times‚ toxins are released along with the nutrients and they are allowed to enter the blood stream. The body has a very complex and effective mechanism for handling such toxins‚ but in the meantime‚ they can cause discomfort. This is where aloe vera steps in to help detoxify the blood. Because it is also soothing and healing‚ it may relax the muscles of the digestive tract while having a cleansing effect.

    Metagenics creates innovative supplements that help people overcome the symptoms of chronic diseases and maintain their health. Quality and research is paramount‚ and has been since the company was founded in 1983. All active ingredients in Metagenics products have been demonstrated effective by third-party scientists. Its formulas have been imitated but never duplicated.

    So far so good.

    I've been taking Glutagenics Powder by Metagenics for about a month and can definitely see an improvement in my gastritis symptoms. I warm up about 8 oz of water in the microwave for 2 minutes and put a teaspoon of Glutagenics in it, like a cup of tea. This is the best way for me to drink it. (It's important not to put it in boiling water though as that could affect effectiveness.) Very happy to have found something that seems to be working!


    Pros

      Seems to be healing my stomach, or at least easing my gastritis symptoms, which is really nice.

    Cons

      A little expensive.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Pain Goes Down the Toilet!

    Glutagenics Powder by Metagenics is portable. Great for traveling. Add to water and the licorice soothes the gastrointestinal lining and chases the pain causing particles out with a natural 6 hour laxative effect!


    Pros

      Stir the powder in water and drink immediately. No aftertaste.

    Cons

    Different from what I purchased at Dr.s

    This was prescribed by my doctor to heal the gut due to leaky gut syndrome. I purchased it at his office. My doctors office is not close to home so I ordered subsequent jars from Pure Formulas. For some reason it is much lighter in color and does not have a very strong licorice taste. Perhaps it varies from batch to batch? I cant comment on the products effectiveness yet. I have not been taking it long enough.


    Pros

      Taste is decent.

    Cons

    I need to know if the "natural flavors" in Glutagenics contains vanilla and/or fennel. I'm having a strong reaction to these foods - my diet is so basic, I can't imagine where else I might be consuming them. thank you!
