L-Glutamine- Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the bloodstream. It is most notable for its healing properties to the gastrointestinal tract and is helpful with ulcers, IBS, and gluten sensitivities.* Elevated cortisol levels from trauma (wounds, burns, surgeries) can deplete glutamine levels. In solution L-Glutamine is virtually tasteless. Glutamine is considered “anti-catabolic “which means it can help your body maintain muscle under stress or disease. Athletes use Glutamine for this purpose, to help muscles recover from exercise and to prevent the loss of muscle while dieting. Some people use glutamine for digestive system conditions such as stomach ulcers, ulcerative colitis, and Cohn’s disease.
People who have HIV (AIDS) sometimes use glutamine to prevent weight loss (HIV wasting).
