L-Glutamine by Designs for Health
L-Glutamine is an amino acid, which is essential for the health of the immune system and digestive tract. It is very reparative and healing in the gut where it strengthens the mucosal cells and in turn helps leaky gut and sugar cravings. Glutamine also helps promote optimal muscle growth and strength and has shown to be particularly useful in helping prevent muscle wasting.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body. It is integral to gastrointestinal health as glutamine is the primary metabolic fuel for the enterocytes that line the intestine and colon. Considering the length and complex structural nature of the GI tract, the intestines have the largest demand for glutamine in the body. Glutamine depletion can cause atrophy, ulceration of the intestinal lining, and may also lead to leaky gut.
