Product Overview


  • Supports Muscle Mass
  • GMP Quality Assured
  • A Dietary Supplement

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.

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule 1-3 times daily, preferably between meals.

Instant effect -- took away nausea.

Posted by 4951731935942673332 on Jan 20, 2017

I have been dealing with nausea and IBS symptoms for 6 months. Sometimes the nausea was so severe I could not function. It has interfered with my appetite, and sometimes after eating I would have intense, agonising stomach cramps, like someone was trying to shove my stomach into a thimble. I took 1 capsule on an empty stomach. 10 minutes later I felt odd -- like I could feel all kinds of emotional rollercoasters going on, except it felt more like watching someone else experience it. I didn't feel dissociated, more like the emotional reaction was happening in the back of my mind, between depression, irritability, and also peace. I felt an urge to take a nap, so I did, and fell asleep for 90 minutes despite being on a medication which I've never been able to sleep on before. The day after my first dose, I didn't feel any nausea. If anything I felt like I was starving, and I ate a LOT -- without any nausea whatsoever, when often eating even a small amount made me feel sick. It's been almost a week since that first dose, and I haven't had any nausea or IBS symptoms since. I am really, really impressed, as I had no idea it would impact my nausea at all, let alone so quickly. I'm now able to take other supplements that I had to be careful with because they triggered my nausea. I was even able to jump right into an 150mg dose of ALA without so much as a blip. (Disclaimer: I also started taking cilantro/chlorella on the same day, but I do not believe it was those as I took them several hours before the glutamine, and when I felt them kick in the symptoms were more head-related and had no impact on my nausea -- supplements/medications have always kicked in almost instantly for me, however I could still be wrong and it could be confounding. I'm also taking a number of other supplements that may have reduced nausea but not until I took the glutamine. Overall body-wide inflammation has also gone down, but it's hard to tell if that's the chlorella/cilantro, natural healing, or the glutamine, or all of the above.)
