In addition to its role in healthy immunity, Glutamine supports the bodys ability to mount a healthy stress response.
SUGGESTED USAGE: As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule 1-3 times daily, preferablybetween meals. Amounts as high as 5,000 to 15,000 mg per day (in divided doses) may berecommended by a healthcare practitioner.
BENEFITS: Glutamine has recently been the focus of much scientific interest. A growingbody of evidence suggests that during certain stressful times, the body may require moreGlutamine than it can produce. Under these circumstances Glutamine may be considered aconditionally essential amino acid. Glutamine is involved in maintaining a positive nitrogenbalance (an anabolic state) and also aids rapidly growing cells (immune system lymphocytesand intestinal cell enterocytes). In addition, Glutamine is a regulator of acid-base balance anda nitrogen transporter.*

Glutamine, a nonessential amino acid that appears to be conditionally essential duringperiods of physiologic stress, plays an important role in immune function. Glutamine isrequired by the cells of the immune system both as a primary fuel and as a carbon andnitrogen donor for nucleotide precursor synthesis. In vivo studies have demonstrated thatglutamine is critical for optimal immune cell functioning for monocytes, lymphocytes andneutrophils. In addition to its role in healthy immunity, Glutamine supports the bodys abilityto mount a healthy stress response.
Glutamine is also an oxidizing energy source for the cells of the upper gastrointestinal tract.Because Glutamine is the main fuel that the intestinal cells need for maintenance and repair,it supports healthy intestinal tissue and enhances the barrier function of the gut againstforeign agents.
The main use of dietary and supplementary Glutamine is for the replenishment of the bodyssupply that has been depleted during exercise or everyday activities.*
Cautions and Interactions Those with impaired liver or kidney function should use glutamine supplements only under thesupervision of a physician.
If you are taking anti-seizure medications, including carbamazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin,primidone, and valproic acid, use glutamine only under medical supervision.
