L-glutamine is the most prevalent amino acid in the bloodstream. It is found in high concentration in skeletal muscle and lung, liver, brain, and gastrointestinal tissues. Skeletal muscle is considered to contain the greatest intracellular concentration of glutamine, comprising up to 60 percent of total body glutamine stores, and muscle is the primary storage depot and exporter of glutamine to other tissues. However, the gastrointestinal tract is the greatest user of glutamine in the body because glutamine provides the primary fuel for the nutrient-absorbing cells that line the walls of the small intestine.

Under certain circumstances the body's tissues may need more glutamine than the amount supplied by diet and internal production. In times of metabolic stress, glutamine is released from the muscles into the bloodstream, where it is transported to the tissues in need. But glutamine concentration in the skeletal muscles can be affected by various insults, including injury, infection, prolonged stress, malnutrition, and the use of some medications. Research demonstrates glutamine supplementation may be of benefit to the needed structures and functions.

Supplemental glutamine may provide benefit for gastrointestinal health, as well as maintenance for wound healing, immune health, and nutrient support for individuals undergoing some therapies.

I rely on this product!!

by Frankie -

I use this product, twice a day between meals, to control acid reflux. This product has enabled me to stop taking prescription and OTC antacids. I still avoid foods that provoke acid reflux as well as follow the usual rule of not eating for 3 hours before bedtime. To be completely off of prescription meds (which have quite harmful effects) and be symptom free is wonderful. My GERD doctor totally approves of my use of this product.
