  • Thorne provides L-glutamine in a convenient‚ cost-effective powder for ease of supplementation in large amounts.

    L-glutamine is the most prevalent amino acid in the bloodstream. It is found in high concentration in skeletal muscle and lung‚ liver‚ brain‚ and gastrointestinal tissues. Skeletal muscle contains the greatest intracellular concentration of glutamine‚ comprising up to 60 percent of total body glutamine stores‚ and muscle is the primary storage depot and exporter of glutamine to other tissues. However‚ the gastrointestinal tract is the greatest user of glutamine in the body because glutamine provides the primary fuel for the nutrient-absorbing cells that line the walls of the small intestine.

    Various stressors – such as trauma‚ infection‚ malnutrition‚ chemotherapy‚ and others – can impact the normal function of the enterocytes of the small intestine by adversely affecting how substances are absorbed. For example‚ when gut permeability is impaired it can allow large protein molecules to diffuse across the intestine – that would otherwise not – and enter the bloodstream. The body can identify these large protein molecules as foreign and mount an immune reaction against them‚ which can result in the development of food allergies. In numerous animal studies‚ in which hyperpermeability of the intestine is experimentally induced‚ the addition of glutamine improved permeability function as well as the gut's immune function.

    Under certain circumstances the body's tissues need more glutamine than the amount supplied by diet and internal production. In times of metabolic stress‚ glutamine is released from the muscles into the bloodstream‚ where it is transported to the tissues in need. But glutamine concentration in the skeletal muscles can be affected by various insults‚ including injury‚ infection‚ prolonged stress‚ malnutrition‚ and the use of glucocorticoids. Research demonstrates glutamine supplementation may be of benefit to the needed structures and functions.

    In addition‚ as noted above‚ evidence suggests supplemental glutamine may provide benefit for gastrointestinal health‚ as well as support for wound healing‚ immune health‚ and nutrient support for individuals undergoing chemotherapy and radiation.

    Great for dietary distress!

    L-Glutamine Powder by Thorne Research is a great product first recommended to us by our kinesiologst for my wifes 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 L-Glutamine Powder is great through PureFormulas but was out of stock when I last ordered.


    Pros

      What I like about L-Glutamine Powder is that it does what it says it will do and has no side effects of which we are aware.

    Cons

      There is nothing negative I can say about L-Glutamine Powder.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    L-Glutamine powder

    Our vet and breeder recommended L-Glutamine Powder by Thorne Research 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.

    Happy Gut

    My Naturopath says if there is one thing I do each day it is L-Glutamine Powder!! I have leaky gut and candida - and I find this easy to take. Think quality is important and call the company for a review of their quality and why the price is high. Wish it was less but then again the cost of sickness is not where I want to spend my money!


    Pros

      Free Fast Shipping quality

    Cons

      High Price

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
