Natural Health L-Glutamine Powder
Amino acids are the building blocks that form body and dietary proteins. Twenty two different amino acids occur in nature and have traditionally been grouped into two categories – nonessential and essential. Nonessential amino acids are made by the liver from general dietary protein intake and don’t have to be consumed directly. In contrast, essential amino acids cannot be made “from scratch” by the liver and therefore must come from diet or supplements to meet the body’s daily demands. Glutamine has traditionally been considered a “non essential” amino acid, but current research suggests that it maybe “conditionally essential” under certain metabolic conditions such as exercise.
L–glutamine may help with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Tissues in the intestine use this amino acid as a fuel source to function well. L–glutamine also appears to have a role in maintaining proper barriers within the intestine. IBS is one of the most common intestinal disorders.
