The amino acid l-glutamine supports cellular growth, energy and repair and provides digestive and immune system benefits.
From NSP - Nature's Sunshine - Stimulates mental learning ability - a neurotransmitter.
- Helps supply the brain with energy.
- Supports cellular growth, energy and repair.
- Also supports the immune system and digestion.
- Provides 500 mg l-glutamine per capsule.
How It Works:
L-glutamine is an amino acid (a protein building block) that is important in supplying the brain with energy. Its main function is to support cellular growth, energy and repair. It also helps with muscle pain (from exercise).
Take 1–2 capsules daily with a meal.
L-Glutamine: glycogen-burning amino acid efficiently.
It is needed to burn glycogen (a primary fuel for the brain). It stimulates
mental learning ability.
L-Glutamine is also needed in the brain as a neurotransmitter.
Supplementation reduces behavior problems and autism in some children.
L-Glutamine reduces cravings for sugar and alcohol in larger doses of 10-
15 g per day.
It has been used to reduce the many pains and fatigues of inefficient metabolism.
L-Glutamine is manufactured from other amino acids and vitamins in the liver.
The kidneys also contribute to Glutamine regulation.
Both organs require plenty of vitamin B. which is often inadequate.
Individuals with insufficient I-Glutamine may be more sensitive to foods,
such as Chinese foods, that have had MSG added.
When blood sugar levels drop, cravings tend to follow because your brain is not getting the fuel it needs. "L-glutamine, an amino acid, instantly fuels the brain, which stops the code red that makes you crave sweets and starchy foods" says Julia Ross, director of Recovery Systems Clinic in Mill Valley, Calif.
Evidence also suggests that L-glutamine might facilitate weight loss by affecting the conversion and storage of calories. In a 1996 study at Duke University Medical Center, researchers found that supplementation with L-glutamine caused weight loss in mice.
