Glutamine has recently been the focus of much scientific interest. A growing body of evidence suggests that during certain stressful times, the body may require more Glutamine than it can produce. Under these circumstances Glutamine may be considered a “conditionally essential” amino acid. Glutamine is involved in maintaining a positive nitrogen balance (an anabolic state) and also aids rapidly growing cells (immune system lymphocytes and intestinal cell enterocytes). In addition, Glutamine is a regulator of acid-base balance and a nitrogen transporter.
NOW® L-Glutamine Powder is a pure, free-form, nonessential amino acid and is the highest grade available. It allows for controlled dosing and can be added to beverages and health shakes.
Per 1 teaspoon:
L-Glutamine 3000 mg
Non-Medicinal Ingredients: None.
Adult Dosage: Take 1 teaspoon 2-3 times daily.
Consult a health care practitoner prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or if you are following a low protein diet.
I initially was happy with this product. I take it and find it helps me feel less bloated when I take protein powder (it had no taste or smell really), sadly though, after awhile the product started to smell absolutely horrible! The taste was just as bad, I didn't think glutamine could go bad, but something in my batch mine did.
Many Canadian retailers use the American description for NOW food products when in fact NOW foods has a Canadian version and its different. For this product the Canadian version is slightly less potent and has fillers so its not 100% it has other ingredients. Also for this product it said that it uses "synthetic" L-glutamine but the American version says pure so i contacted pure source which is the the company that sells the Canadian NOW products and told me that they changed the label a while back and removed the "synthetic" on the label so i dont know how old this product was??
Regardless customer service was excellent was on the phone for like 30 seconds and resolved my issue and sent me a return paper and didn't charge me shipping. :)
Love the powder! I had been taking pills for years. This way is more affordable, easily mixes in any drink or even water. I swear it smells like cake batter when I open the lid but maybe it's just me. The only thing is its not as convenient to travel with powder as will pills but whatever. I trust Now Foods as they use GMP and I have always found them to be reliable.
