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.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule 1-3 times daily, preferably between meals.
Gelatin (capsule), stearic acid, magnesium stearate and silica.
Contains no sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg or preservatives.

Oh my goodness this stuff is absolutely amazing! I had heard that it is good to help gut problems like IBS-D so i ordered a bottle. Started taking 1 cap 4 times per day (hr before breakfast, hr before lunch, hr before dinner, just before bed). I increased that to 2 x caps each time and by the second day my stools were normal YAY! After about 4 days i noticed my mood was permanently fantastic! Things that would normally stress me out were not irritating or affecting me at all. I was totally amazed. Been taking these for 2 weeks now and my long term irritability has vanished and my stools are consistently formed. They say our gut is closely linked to our brain, this stuff proves it :) Will not be without it!
Good but insufficient

The normal dose of L-Glutamine that you have to eat to feel an improvement is too high to use this product. Each capsule it's just 1g and you won't feel anything until you use 4 or 5 per day. Before using that, ask to a nutritionist because the dose indicated in the content is not correct.
Instant effect -- took away nausea.

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.)
