L-Glutamine Powder

Allows proper nutrient absorption and guards against allergens*

Researchers have found that L-Glutamine helps maintain the proper permeability of the small intestines. Without glutamine, the villi (the part of the small intestines that allow nutrients in) become too porous. Molecules enter the body that normally would be too large to breach the intestinal wall. This results in substances being allowed into the bloodstream that can cause allergic reactions and other problematic responses. Glutamine helps the lining allow the proper nutrients into the body while barring the entry of allergens.

Along with allergens, when your intestinal tract is damaged or stressed, microbes and the toxins they secrete can also find their way through the intestinal walls and lead to infection. Glutamine helps keep these nasty substances out by aiding in creating a barrier that protects the body. In addition, the cells of the intestinal walls that are responsible for choosing which nutrients are permitted into the body are fueled by glutamine.

Researchers have found that besides feeding the cells in the intestines and helping put up barriers to pathogens, glutamine helps boost the growth of probiotics, which in turn also help defend the intestinal walls against pathogenic invasion. When researchers gave glutamine to people with ulcerative colitis, they found that it reduced intestinal inflammation – and their probiotic bacteria flourished as well. It works best one or two hours before or after meals because acids destroy its activity.

The Underestimated Ultimate Nutrient

Brain food that heals the gut, maintains muscle mass and fortifies immunity. The fall always reminds me of my experience over twenty years ago when I was writing my first book, Beyond Pritikin (Bantam, 1988). Back then (in the mid 1980s), I worked with an extraordinarily fast computer whiz, Chris, who transcribed my handwritten manuscript. … READ MORE

Leaky Gut Syndrome

The Painful Consequences of Faulty Digestion. Seemingly unrelated symptoms—abdominal pain, acne, allergies, anemia, arthritis, anxiety, colitis, constipation, cramps, diarrhea, fatigue, hives, irritable bowel, skin rashes, trouble concentrating, vaginal infections, and unexplained weight change—can all result from the same problem, leaky gut. Normally, the lining of the intestines absorbs only well-digested nutrients. But if the intestinal … READ MORE
