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.

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!
My 11 yr-old daughter has moderate to severe Ulcerative Colitis. I have her taking 1 capsule two times a day based on published research studies of natural therapies to treat UC (also with the blessing of her GI doctor). After less than a month on this and a few other supplements, we have been able to stop Remicade treatments (which have significant risks of serious side effects), have continued her remission and have even seen an improvement in her GI health!

Best for candida overgrowth!
Posted by Reviewer2285259 on Dec 07, 2016
I've had a problem with a candida overgrowth for years. When I eat sugar or carbs I get all kinds of symptoms, headache, neck and shoulder pain, ringing in ears, itchy flaky scalp, pressure in ears, and many more. I've taken all kinds of supplements, some successful to some extent. Even the very expensive Candex doesn't really do the job. In my research I found some claim that L-Glutamine seals up the bowel so candida can't escape into the rest of the system. Since I've been taking this, 3 to 6 per day, 1 or 2 with most meals, my symptoms are almost totally gone, and I can eat some of the previously offending foods as long as I don't ever do it. LOVE this product!!
