L-Glutamine is a major fuel source for intestinal, immune, and brain cells. It also comprises nearly 60% of the body's total amino acid muscle pool. L-Glutamine regulates nitrogen transport to and from muscle tissue, thereby promoting amino acid balance. This formulation provides Free Form L-Glutamine to promote optimal absorption and assimilation.
As a dietary supplement for adults, take three (3) vegetable capsules up to three times daily, between meals, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.

Assisting Muscle Growth
The most common use of this supplement is for muscle growth by athletes and bodybuilders. This is due to such a large component of our amino acid make-up being l-glutamine. Supplementing our diet when working out can greatly assist with protein synthesis. It is not a steroid and is naturally occurring within our bodies. When the body is depleted of this amino acid during intense workouts, muscle wasting can occur. This can cause tiredness and slower recovery periods. Supplementation with l-glutamine allows the recovery period to be reduced enhancing the athlete’s strength program by helping to repair the muscles quicker and increase consistency. L-Glutamine is not a miracle cure for laziness or a quick fix, but as a supplement, it enhances results of our workout effort by allowing the body the much needed amino acids for lean muscle growth and healthy maintenance.
By assisting cell hydration, cell volume is enhanced thereby reducing recovery time from sporting activity, injury and wounds. Muscle damage caused by intense workout or injury is repaired more effectively where the cell volume and hydration levels are aided by this very important amino acid.
Metabolism and Growth
Supplementing our intake with l-glutamine can massively increase levels of naturally occurring Human Growth Hormone (HGH). Metabolism is accelerated due to increased levels of HGH which allows the more efficient processing of foods and enhancing the efficient metabolism of fats. This leads to an improvement in fat reduction and the building of lean muscle.
A common ailment of over 40’s is a condition called Diverticulitis. L-Glutamine has been effective in reducing the severity and incidence of this very painful and debilitating ailment which can thereby reduce the potential risk of colon cancer. Ulcers and other intestinal issues respond well and its effect on the digestive system boosts the overall immune system.
Reduced Cravings for Alcohol and Sugar
Supplements of l-glutamine can help suppress or curb the sometimes uncontrollable cravings for alcohol or sugary foods. It does this by helping the body to suppress insulin and thereby stabilising blood sugar levels. This reduces the body’s draw upon muscle mass to maintain blood sugar levels in times of low calorie intake or strenuous exercise. In a similar way, alcohol cravings can be reduced and in extreme cases has led to the cure of alcoholism. As a result of the reduced cravings of sugary foods or alcohol, weight loss can occur as a fringe benefit. Similarly, with reduced fat and improved lean muscle mass, caloric metabolism is improved. This is due to muscle being a higher burner of calories than fat.
