Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Thorne Research’s L-Glutamine Powder is provided as a convenient, cost-effective powder for ease of supplementation in large amounts.
L-glutamine is the most prevalent amino acid in the bloodstream. It is found in high concentration in skeletal muscle and in lung, liver, brain, and gastrointestinal tissues. Skeletal muscle contains the greatest intracellular concentration of L-glutamine, comprising up to 60 percent of the body’s total L-glutamine stores, and muscle is the primary storage depot and exporter of L-glutamine to other tissues. However, the gastrointestinal tract is the greatest user of L-glutamine in the body because it provides the primary fuel for the nutrient-absorbing cells that line the walls of the small intestine.
Various stress factors – such as trauma, infection, malnutrition, chemotherapy, injury, and high level training – can impact the normal function of the enterocytes of the small intestine by adversely affecting their absorption mechanism. For example, when gut permeability is impaired it can allow large protein molecules to diffuse across the intestine – that would otherwise not – and enter into the bloodstream. The body can identify these large protein molecules as foreign and initiate an immune reaction against them, which can result in the development of food allergies. In numerous animal studies, in which hyperpermeability of the intestine is experimentally induced, the addition of L-glutamine improved permeability function, as well as the gut's immune function.
Under certain circumstances the body's tissues need more L-glutamine than the amount consumed in the diet and internal production. In times of metabolic stress, L-glutamine is released from the muscles into the bloodstream, where it is transported to the tissues in need. But L-glutamine concentration in the skeletal muscles is affected by various insults, including injury, infection, chronic stress, malnutrition, and glucocorticoid use. Research indicates L-glutamine supplementation can offset these conditions.
In addition, as noted above, evidence suggests supplemental L-glutamine benefits gastrointestinal health and supports wound healing, immune health, and nutrient support for individuals undergoing chemotherapy and radiation.

Pray for glutamine
If you have arthritis , give this a BIG MISS
Posted by iHerb Customer on Feb 25, 2017 | Verified Purchase
L-Glutamine was a recommended supplement to improve intestinal health and spike your GH levels (if you are young enough). As the body makes it , this amino is non-essential, but taking even less than half the recommended dose, it donates Nitrogen (urea), a vasodilator and forms L-glutamate (glutamic acid, gluten) , which causes inflammation and increased knee pain for arthritics. This result may be intensified for people with a leaky gut. Max Davies
Good for the gut

I have Celiac disease and find that L-glutamine helps with lingering symptoms. This powder is ultra-fine, and dissolves easily in lukewarm water. The taste in water is tolerable and I simply "pretend" it is tea.

I am very pleased with this product and will definitely be ordering it again from iHerb! It mixes well with room temperature water and the taste is just fine. I ordered this to help repair my leaky gut and I believe it is working. I take one scoop every single morning and I have been feeling much less bloated since I started this! I tried some glutamine pills from a health food store but they had added ingredients I didn't like and it was not cost effective to take so many pills. I like this brand and will continue using it. It seems like a lot of money but it lasts a long time and the quality is very worth it. If you have any stomach troubles I encourage you to try this stuff! Start off slow though, even one scoop was too much for me in the beginning.
hoping it works

This product is wonderful to use as part of a digestive healing protocol, especially for healing leaky gut. It is a clean formula that is easy to take in water on an empty stomach, or mixed with juice or smoothies.
