Higher Nature Glutamine
The amino acid Glutamine may be helpful for maintaining a healthy digestive system. It also aids muscle recovery after exercise and is important for healthy immunity. The slightly sweet powder can be stirred into water or juice or sprinkled on food.
Available in powder or capsules.
The amino acid Glutamine is the primary fuel of the lining of the digestive system and of the immune system. It can also be used as a fuel by brain cells when blood sugar (glucose) is low. It is used to make pyroglutamate and GABA, both of which assist concentration, memory and learning. As it feeds the cells lining the digestive system, it can help maintain the integrity of the gut lining. It is also a useful aid in appetite management and as nutritional support for the liver.
Although the body can make Glutamine from food, the amount we gain from food can be very small and is easily destroyed by cooking. A supplement, therefore, may be useful at demanding times or during illness and convalescence. Glutamine is a slightly sweet powder, which can be stirred into water or juice or sprinkled onto food.
