Thorne L-Glutamine Powder 18.1 oz

Various stressors such as trauma, infection, malnutrition, chemotherapy, and others – can impact the normal function of the enterocytes of the small intestine by adversely affecting how substances are absorbed. For example, when gut permeability is impaired it can allow large protein molecules to diffuse across the intestine – that would otherwise not – and enter the bloodstream. The body can identify these large protein molecules as foreign and mount an immune reaction against them, which can result in the development of food allergies. In numerous animal studies, in which hyper-permeability of the intestine is experimentally induced, the addition of glutamine improved permeability function as well as the gut's immune function.

Under certain circumstances the body's tissues need more glutamine than the amount supplied by diet and internal production. In times of metabolic stress, glutamine is released from the muscles into the bloodstream, where it is transported to the tissues in need. But glutamine concentration in the skeletal muscles can be affected by various insults, including injury, infection, prolonged stress, malnutrition, and the use of glucocorticoids. Research demonstrates glutamine supplementation may be of benefit to the needed structures and functions.

In addition, as noted above, evidence suggests supplemental glutamine may provide benefit for gastrointestinal health, as well as support of wound healing, immune health, and nutrient support of individuals undergoing chemotherapy and radiation.

Dr. Michael Lebowitz D.C. Recommends:
This is the most abundant amino acid in the body. During times of infection, surgery, and injury, there is a greatly increased demand for L-Glutamine (and deficiencies are likely to exist during these times). With dysbiosis, food sensitivities, and ingestion of intestine-damaging NSAIDS so prevalent, damage to the intestinal mucosa as well as increased gastrointestinal permeability is quite common. Adequate L0Glutamine levels can greatly facilitate intestinal healing. L-Glutamine supplementation can increase small bowel mucosal integrity, and enhance gut immune function. Dr. Michael Lebowitz tests it on every patient with dysbiosis and food sensitivities. Sometimes it only tests positive after dysbiosis is corrected. Dr. Michael Lebowitz buys it in the powdered form.
