L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and is important for many functions, including digestive health, immune support and muscle growth. Stress, exercise, illness, and poor diet can deplete our supply of this important nutrient.
Did you know that L-Glutamine is my all-time favorite amino acid? I could spend an entire episode of Know the Cause talking about this incredible nutrient. Glutamine works in virtually every part of the body. It's the most abundant amino acid in the body, and the third most abundant in the brain and blood.
Glutamine is known as a "conditionally essential" essential amino acid. That means that when you're eating right, you're supplementing, and you're in shape, the body can make glutamine on its own. When the body is under a lot of stress-like when you're sick, or undergoing surgery, or even when you're dieting-the body just can't make enough glutamine for normal function. The only way to get enough at that point is through diet and supplementation.
So why is this such a special amino acid? Dr. Billie Shaley reports that glutamine may assist the kidneys and liver in removing toxins from our bodies. Studies have shown that the effectiveness of chemotherapy and radiation are enhanced when cancer patients supplement with glutamine, while the toxicity of the treatments is diminished. Dr. Shaley also reports that glutamine may strengthen the immune system, speed wound healing, and even support the growth of pancreas cells.
One of the side effects of aging is that each year we tend to lose muscle. L-glutamine can help that, too. Bodybuilders have long known that glutamine is essential for helping to preserve muscle tissue, and most supplement with it every single day.
Perhaps the most popular reason why people take glutamine as a natural digestive aid is for intestinal support. In 1970, the National Institute of Health said that glutamine was the most important nutrient for the intestinal tract because of its ability to repair intestinal tissue. You've heard Doug talk about yeast getting into the gut and literally poking holes in the lining of the stomach. This is called Leaky Gut Syndrome and it causes a huge number of symptoms in people. Food particles literally seep through the lining of the stomach and this is known to be the starting point for food allergies. If you're like me, you'd definitely want to take good antifungals to take care of the yeast overgrowth. Then, its essential to repair the lining of the gut, and the main nutrient that does this is glutamine.
L-glutamine is so inexpensive, virtually tasteless, and mixes so easy in water, I take it every single day.

Id like to give a much needed SHOUT OUT to BioActive Nutrients and Guy Evans for reaching out to me to discuss my chronic indigestion and gut pain that Ive suffered from for nearly the past 2 years since having diverticulitis.
Thanks to your suggestion of taking L-Glutamine prior to eating when I was unable to even tolerate drinking water without pain. I have been able to COMPLETELY QUIT the “little purple pill” which I had been taking daily, sometimes twice per day no matter what I ate.
For anyone that suffers from heartburn, indigestion, or difficulty with gut pain, I highly suggest that you contact BioActive Nutrients regarding this wonderful product as it has changed my ability to eat and actually enjoy food again without setbacks!
