Our L-Glutamine powder is certified to be Vegan, Kosher, Halal, allergen-free, non-GMO, and solvent-free. The amino acid L-Glutamine is commonly used for:
- gastrointestinal health*
- muscle maintenance and growth*
Because L-Glutamine is one of the few preferred sources of energy by the brain, L-Glutamine also is reported to help boost mental energy and support normal cravings for food or alcohol.*
Clinical studies in recent years have changed the long-held view that glutamine is a non-essential amino acid. This reassessment has occurred in stages. Since the 1980's L-Glutamine has been classified as a conditionally-essential amino acid, meaning that your body usually can make (synthesize) enough. However, clinicians have widely disputed this view, claiming that “enough” frequently is not enough.
By the early 1990’s researchers were catching up and becoming more alert to the possibility that during times of stress, whether from fever, illness, dieting, or prolonged therapy your body’s production of L-Glutamine simply cannot keep up with its requirements.*
