- Ingredients & Dosage
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.
Take 500 – 1,000 mg at least twenty minutes before meals or as directed by a health care practitioner.
Warning: Do not take if you are pregnant or lactating.

One of the awesome team members at Uni Key suggested I try this, when I explained my stomach discomfort after eating bread & other carbohydrates. I loved that it had no taste & disolved easily. It really helped me quite a bit, and although the pain did not leave entirely, it diminished it greatly. I highly reccomend you try it!
