Glutamine Info

Glutamine is an amino acid found abundantly in muscle tissue and vital for maintenance of muscle mass.

Not only muscle, but every cell and tissue in the body utilises glutamine. As the most abundant blood-borne free amino acid it crosses the blood/brain barrier to optimise central nervous system function, enhancing memory and clarity of mind. Stomach and intestinal health and blood glucose balance are also helped by glutamine.

Glutamine Benefits

Glutamine provides 80% of the body’s free nitrogen so is important in maintaining a positive nitrogen balance following intense exercise or injury.

Intestinal problems including leaky gut, candida overgrowth, ulcers, IBS and Crohn’s disease may benefit from glutamine, which helps improve nutrient absorption, energy, tissue health, blood sugar and immune function.

Research shows glutamine supplements can decrease the craving for alcohol, sugar and carbohydrates, useful in treating alcoholism and obesity.

Glutamine Side Effects

Some people can experience constipation and bloating, and in rare cases headaches while taking glutamine supplements. Contraindicated during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Contraindicated in cases of kidney disorder or diabetic risk, liver dysfunction, mental illness esp. bipolar or manic disorders, epilepsy, Reye’s syndrome, MSG (monosodium glutamate) allergy. Contraindicated if taking lactulose medication for constipation.

Product Reviews

  • Highly recommend for gut health

    star

    I have Crohn's disease and notice a huge difference to my gut health when I don't take it for a while. It may seem a bit pricey but in comparison to others on the market it's reasonably priced and will last you a while. I like to blend it in with my smoothie and I don't notice it's there.

    I didn't buy this for my skin but for my gut. I have been only using this for a week now and was told that my skin glowing. I definitely buy it again.

  • Outstanding product for leaky gut

    star

    After taking steroids and antibiotics simultaneously for pneumonia, I developed constant diarrhoea for more than 5 months. The doctors didn't help at all and I had been taking tonnes of probiotics but still it persisted. So I did a bit of my own research and found that my gut must have been damaged by the medication & I had developed leaky gut. I have only been taking this product for about 3 weeks and I have been diarrhoea-free now for a week which is a miracle and a first in months! I am going to keep using this product along with the digestive enzymes and probiotics I also bought to heal my gut.
