Life can be stressful; there’s no doubt about that. With the demands of family and work, sometimes you just don't have time to chill out and recover. When your body undergoes an intense strain—whether due to exercise or illness—it
may need some extra help. L-glutamine is an amino acid produced by the muscles and found in certain foods, including fish, eggs, beets, beans, cabbage, and spinach. Amino acids are responsible for building protein. For many people, it’s
difficult to get enough of the fresh, nutritious to satisfy daily requirements. This naturally occurring amino acid is normally abundant in your body, but during times of stress, illness or injury, supplementation is often recommended.
Athletes have long used L-glutamine supplements to aid in muscle recovery and enhance their performance.
L-glutamine has several vital functions:
It supports the immune system.
It helps regulate the kidney's pH level.
in protein synthesis.
It's the backup source of cellular energy, after glucose.
Since it supports such vital functions, L-glutamine aids greatly in recovery, whether from a period of intense physical activity or an injury. It's
often recommended to people recovering from surgery or undergoing chemotherapy, as well as individuals suffering from gastrointestinal distress. It strengthens the intestinal tract and tones the protective mucous lining. In effect,
L-glutamine helps the body build its own natural reserves back up, so it can heal itself.

Use it every day
By Kate from Pasadena, MD on March 22, 2012
My daughter's pediatrician recommended we use l-Glutamine Powder by Pure Encapsulations twice a day in my daughter's bottles. Her eczema started around 4 months and now at 10 months her skin is almost clear. She still scratches but I think it's more out of habit. We currently use glutamine along with dha (fish oil), probiotics, zinc, vitamin d and a multivitamin.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Does more than I knew or thought!!

I bought l-Glutamine at the recommendation of my Dr. for my Gut and Crohns disease.. What I ALSO found was that It helped my extreme sensitivity and inappropriate crying after getting off all my Anti- depression meds. Seriously I had been taking the Zoloft 50mgs every other day cause I could not control it and when I started taking 3mgs of l-glutimine 2x a day It was totally gone. I tested this by not taking it to be sure and alas it was this amino acid. ALSO, I was more focused and tested it on my son who has confirmed ADD and he too was more focused.. This was remarkable. I don't know if it's at all marketed for these things but I am vigilant in noticing any differences in my body a/o mind when I start something new.. GREAT stuff!!!!

I have had four lumbar back surgeries since October 2010 which has left me on my back for six months and the fourth surgery being a fusion. I started taking a mix of the Pure Encapsulation products post surgery and I owe a good part of my recovery to the product.
