L-Glutamine
« on: March 06, 2010, 08:21:41 AM »
I could not find a thread devoted to this supplement but I am seeing it recommended a lot. I am very curious about it and wondered if we could devote this thread specifically to it.  I hope I can make this coherent.

 Is it safe in pregnancy?

 I have read (in an advert) that it is good for preventing muscle loss in those who have been in a long time. My morning sickness has been pretty bad and for many weeks I was only able to get out of bed to go "kneel at the throne". Subsequently I am now quite weak and have lost muscle. I am wondering if this supplement would help me get my strength back. I am improving but it is a long, slow process (esp as my morning sickness is not over yet)

 I have multiple food sensitivities. Does this help with gut healing also?

 What else should I know?  ;)

I have been taking l-glutamine (mostly because I was following healthybratt's gut healing recommendations :) ).  I use L-Glutamine 325 by mrm.  I am doing really well.  I couldn't do low carb for other reasons (working on adrenals and slow mercury detox), but I have been doing probiotics, l-glutamine, aloe, cod liver oil.  I was wondering how long I should work on this protocol.  I don't have bloating nearly as much.  I do sometimes though.

I forgot to ask this question- Is there a certain brand that would be highly recommended?  (Especially if it was cheaper than the one I take.)  Also, is there a list of foods that contain l-glutamine?

Look for Glutimine peptides. There much more bioavailable. L-Glutimine is not that absorbable. Peptides is much more expensive though.
