  • Provides immune support.
  • Protects muscle tissue.

Of all the amino acids in the blood stream, Glutamine is the most plentiful. Certain types of increased stress deplete glutamine levels (e.g., cancer, burns, or intense exercise) and can demand supplementation.

Glutamineā€™s main bodily function is to ward off infections and diseases. Low levels of glutamine can also negatively affect the intestines. This added stress to the body causes the release of cortisol, multiplying the depletion of the storage of glutamine. Glutamines essential role in the immune system makes any serious drop cause wound healing to slow down. Supplementing with glutamine helps the body increase immunity, thereby minimizing infection and boosting the healing process.

Suggested Use: Take 1 to 6 capsules per day between meals or after a workout, or as directed by your qualified health care consultant.
