Digestive and immune support formula
Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid that supports both digestive and immune system health. The majority of glutamine uptake occurs in the small intestine, where glutamine acts as an important energy source for the intestinal mucosa.1 During periods of physical stress, glutamine levels can become depleted, increasing the permeability of the intestinal mucosa. Glutamine supplementation has been shown to support normal digestive function and prevent increased intestinal permeability during periods of physical stress.1,2 Glutamine levels also tend to decrease following prolonged physical exertion, which could impact immune function, as glutamine is a major energy source for certain immune cells. In a clinical study conducted on endurance athletes, glutamine supplementation helped to minimize occurrence of post-exercise infections and increase the ratio of T-helper; T-suppressor cells.3REFERENCES1.

I have been taking this glutamine powder for a few years now. It's a great product that Genestra is a great brand that I trust.
I had constant reflux after a twin pregnancy that lasted for close to five years…my naturopath prescribed Amino L Glutamine and within a few months I was off my Pantaloc and almost completely without a reflux problem. Highly recommended.
