Product Description

Size:120

Glutamine has recently been the focus of much scientific interest. A growing body of evidence suggests that during certain stressful times, the body may require more Glutamine than it can produce.  Under these circumstances Glutamine may be considered a "conditionally essential" amino acid.  Glutamine is involved in maintaining a positive nitrogen balance (an anabolic state) and also aids rapidly growing cells (immune system lymphocytes and intestinal cell enterocytes).  In addition, Glutamine is a regulator of acid-base balance and a nitrogen transporter.*

I learned about this from a blog in which the author talked about attending a Julia Ross talk, and found that Glutamine eliminates sugar cravings. I take one in the morning, and will take one later in the day if I crave a sugary snack and don't want to give in. It works within 10 minutes!

I buy NOW Foods supplements as I have celiac disease and their entire product line is gluten free. I also have a master degree in nutrition so I know not only from personal experience that L Glutamine is healing for a damaged intestine as it helps to rebuild cells. Celiac Disease destroys the intestinal villi. The gentleman who took it for a spastic colon apparently had a problem that wasn't helped with this product, and if indeed his problem was spasms it wouldn't be.

Works really well to help relax you in combination with other Brain chemical building amino acids and a diet high in protein and low in sugar. It is a key factor in improving my anxiety, depression and ADHD more than any of the several medications I have taken over the last 10 years. If you are interested, I use this amino acid along with many others in something called amino acid therapy. I highly recommend reading the book " the mood cure" by Julia Ross .

This stuff really lifts my mood, cuts my food cravings and has made me a more personable person. I take this with 5-HTP and L-Tyrosine (not at the same time as aminos should never be taken at the same time) and I am a new person. People actually like me now - and I like them. I got this because I read The Diet Cure by Julia Ross which is a book I highly recommend if you are trying to lose weight.

My bladder use to hurt all the time and I felt I had to use the bathroom all the time. This problem had gone on for years and I took medication to get some relief.
I had a health doctor about two years ago suggest I take this for this problem. I no longer take medication for this problem or have the symptoms. Once in a while it will hurt and I just stop and think did you take your L-Glutamine today.
I am so happy to have found this product for my bladder problem.

I've been taking L-Glutamine and Alpha Lipoic Acid (600mg) for a year and a half as a test to see if it would get rid of cataracts. I'm very happy to say it worked! I'm not sure which one or the combination worked but per my eye Dr the cataracts I' had the last time I saw him 3 years ago are now totally gone. Time to spread the word (since the eye drs all deny there is anything to be done but surgery!).

I use this amino to curb my carb cravings, which are substantial. Make sure you wait 1.5 hours after eating, and take it 30 minutes prior to eating, or it won't work as well. I can see a definite difference in my cravings when I use it. The difference is so pronounced that it can't just be in my head. I can easily walk past a box of donuts without feeling tempted (without the amino, I'd be trying to sniff the box to get my carb fix--sad, but it's actually happened). Check out 5-HTP, too; they work well together.

Wow, this works very well for alcohol cravings. I have an alcohol problem, and I find this reduces cravings very well (no need to use as much willpower to not drink if you don't get the urges in the first place). There are several other benefits to L-Glutamine - increase muscle mass/muscle recovery after workouts, heal GI tract from excessive NSAID use and celiac disease and gluten intolerance, improve mood and energy and mental focus, etc. (do some research)...I take it on an empty stomach first thing in the morning (maybe with a small amount of juice to help bypass the blood/brain barrier) and wait at least an hour before eating anything with protein to avoid competition with other amino acids in food. Just be careful if you have bi-polar tendencies since it L-Glutamine is an 'excitatory' substance in the brain.
