Klaire Labs L-Glutamine powder – 351 g
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body. It helps to form other important amino acids, glucose, protein and the main antioxidant glutathione. It can be stored partially in the muscles and is a major source of energy for small intestine cells, fibroblasts and the immune system. These specific cells use it even rather than glucose.
Glutamine is important for gut health
Glutamine supplementation supports gut health and its healing. It promotes the renewal of the cells of the intestinal barrier and thus increases the integrity of the intestinal wall, which means less chance of leaky gut and a better immune system.
It is recommended by doctors for major traumas, especially major burns and major surgery (specifically on the bowel).
Glutamine and the immune system
Glutamine is also a major energy substrate for cells in of the immune system (leukocytes or white blood cells). Glutamine contributes to the growth and reproduction of cells of the immune system.
Combined with it’s positive effect on leaky gut, it is excellent for improving immune function and preventing various autoimmune diseases.
Glutamine deficiency and effective doses
Although glutamine is not an essential amino acid, it is conditionally essential as it may become in the body. This is especially common for vegans and vegetarians who consume little dairy products and endurance athletes. In such individuals, glutamine replacement is particularly recommended and effective.
Glutamine deficiency is common in victims of burns and trauma of the intestines, as well as other damage to muscle tissue.
