L-Glutamine: An Important Supplement For Stressed or Very Active People

L-Glutamine is an abundant and essential amino acid (which are the building blocks of protein.) What researchers and health experts have discovered over the years is that Glutamine levels in stressed, sick or very active people can easily drop.

When this happens your immune system and digestive system can suffer. Interestingly, people who take L-Glutamine in supplement form report a reduction in sugar cravings, carb cravings and alcohol cravings.

What The Researchers Are Saying About Glutamine:

1. "Glutamine supplementation has beneficial effects on morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients." (source)

2. "Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid in human muscle and plasma and is utilised at high rates by rapidly dividing cells.... to provide energy and optimal conditions for nucleotide biosynthesis. As such, it is considered to be essential for proper immune function." (source)

3. "You can usually get enough glutamine without taking a supplement, because your body makes it and you get some in your diet. Certain medical conditions, including injuries, surgery, infections, and prolonged stress, can lower glutamine levels, however. In these cases, taking a glutamine supplement may be helpful. (source)

It also supports brain function. According to Jonny Bowden, PhD, in his book "The 150 Most Effective Ways To Boost Your Energy" states that "an amino acid, glutamine is a natural energy fuel for the brain, and a spoonful of the powder will do wonders for knocking your sugar cravings right out of the park."

L-Glutamine is widely available in most health food stores and supplement stores. It is relatively inexpensive and also available online.
