Benefits of L-Glutamine

By fueling the gut lining and promoting a balanced immune response, glutamine supports healthy digestion and nutrient assimilation.

A clinical study showed that glutamine supplementation helped patients with post-infectious irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The supplement helped restore the gut barrier, improving gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea, stomach pain, and bloating.

Glutamine also regulates the metabolism of intestinal bacteria, which has profound impacts on gut and body health.

    Benefits

    > Help with Digestive Health 

    By fueling the gut lining and promoting a balanced immune response, glutamine supports healthy digestion and nutrient assimilation. 

    A clinical study showed that glutamine supplementation helped patients with post-infectious irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The supplement helped restore the gut barrier, improving gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea, stomach pain, and bloating. 

    Glutamine also regulates the metabolism of intestinal bacteria, which has profound impacts on gut and body health. 

    > Heal Gut Lining and Leaky Gut

    Glutamine is an important fuel for the gut lining cells. It maintains intestinal barrier function during injury, infection, stress, and other conditions that cause leaky gut. Glutamine’s protective effects can help heal leaky gut. 

    Leaky gut, or intestinal permeability, is when the gut barrier becomes so permeable that it allows food particles or bacterial toxins through. As a result, the food proteins or bacterial toxins stimulate your immune system, causing chronic low-grade inflammation. 

    Causes of leaky gut include an unhealthy diet high in fat and sugar, food allergies, nutrient deficiencies, gluten, stress, traumas, gut infections, and antibiotic use.

    While leaky gut is not an official diagnosis, it’s linked to all modern chronic diseases including obesity, high cholesterol, depression, brain fog, dementia, autoimmune diseases, allergies, and many more. People with digestive disorders also tend to have leaky gut, although they may also have other inflammatory symptoms outside the gut.

    Currently, there is no FDA-approved treatment for leaky gut. While healing leaky gut tends to improve overall health and reduce inflammation, it may not cure conditions associated with leaky gut. 

    Studies show that L-glutamine supplementation supports the repair of intestinal permeability and protects tight junctions

    L-glutamine supplementation also promotes a balanced inflammatory response in the gut, including in cases of ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. 

    > Protect the Immune System 

    The immune cells in your body depend on glutamine to proliferate, survive, and function. L-glutamine supplementation can help ill patients with impaired immune function. 

    > Promote Liver Health and Activity

    Glutamine is an important building block needed for liver functions, including:

    Regulating blood pH

    Removing ammonia

    Growing new liver cells

    And more

    > Reduce Post-Exercise Muscle Soreness

    Glutamine is involved in the immune response to muscle damage. Glutamine’s immune-balancing function and wound-healing support can help reduce muscle soreness after exercise.

    Clinical trials have shown that L-glutamine supplementation significantly reduced muscle soreness and strength loss without significantly reducing muscle damage. This allows trainees to return to training sooner without inhibiting muscle hypertrophy.

    > Aid Blood Sugar Regulation and Weight Loss

    L-glutamine improves blood sugar control. It can be converted into arginine and subsequently nitric oxide, which tells the pancreas to secrete more insulin. It also enhances GLP-1, which also increases insulin secretion and reduces appetite. 

    Therefore, L-glutamine supplementation in combination with a caloric deficit may help with weight loss.  

    > Reduce Carb Cravings

    Carb and sugar cravings can be linked to health conditions such as an unhealthy gut, poor blood sugar control, hormonal imbalances, sleep deprivation, or nutrient deficiencies. 

    Since glutamine is important for blood sugar regulation, L-glutamine supplementation can help stabilize your glucose levels. This can help reduce sugar or carb cravings. 

    People with weakened immune systems and low energy levels can also experience intensified sugar cravings. L-glutamine can boost your energy and help protect the immune system, thus helping with your sugar craving.    

    > Help in Wound Healing

    Immune cells that are involved in wound repair use glutamine as an energy source. L-glutamine supplementation can help decrease infectious complications and balance inflammatory responses. Therefore, L-glutamine may be beneficial for wound healing.

    > Improve Mood

    Inflammation may cause mood and cognition to worsen. L-glutamine supplementation reduces inflammation, thus improving mood and cognition

    Why Super Greens?

    As an anti-aging medicine doctor, I recognize that the gut microbiome is key to health and longevity.

    Many of my patients struggle with leaky gut and digestive problems, which can increase inflammation and lead to accelerated aging, declining health, and many other symptoms that I see every day in my practice.

    There are many glutamine products on the market, and many of them do not work or don’t meet my standards. I decided to formulate RegenerateMD L-glutamine so that I can ensure that the quality meets my high standards.

    FAQ

    How is L-glutamine different from glutamine?

    Glutamine is an important amino acid. It exists in two forms - L-glutamine and D-glutamine. They are mirror images of each other.
    The natural form of glutamine is L-glutamine. It is found in the human body, food, and supplements. Therefore, L-glutamine is typically used interchangeably with glutamine.

    What are some potential side effects of L-glutamine?

    You should always consult your healthcare professional before making changes to your diet, lifestyle, supplementation, and medication regimen.

    L-glutamine may be contraindicated in certain cancers and with some anticonvulsant drugs.

    Glutamine is generally very safe as it’s naturally present in your body. However, at very high doses (over 10 grams per day), rare but reversible side effects may include digestive upset, brain fog, muscle pain, and liver toxicity.

    Is L-glutamine safe foreveryone?

    Since L-glutamine is naturally found in the body and food, it is not harmful in normal quantities. However, excess glutamine supplementation may cause abnormal amino acid levels. It is important to not exceed the recommended dose.
    L-glutamine is not formulated for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers or children under 18.
    Please consult a physician before using L-glutamine if you have a known medical condition, especially cancers, and liver or kidney disorders.

    Can children take RegenerateMD Super Greens?

    The fruit and vegetable extracts in RegenerateMD Super Greens are generally safe for children, but you should always check with your child’s pediatrician before giving them Super Greens. You may need to crush the tablets into a format that the child can take. 

    What causes a leaky gut?

    The following factors can throw off your gut bacteria, causing dysbiosis and leaky gut:
    1. Unhealthy diets high in saturated fat and sugar, and low in fiber
    2. Stress and traumas
    3. Lack of sleep
    4. Antibiotic use
    5. Exposure to antiseptic substances, such as triclosan
    6. Alcohol consumption
    7. Toxic exposures, such as mold exposure
    8. Medications, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and stomach acid-reducing medications (proton pump inhibitors)

    What are leaky gut symptoms?

    Leaky gut shows up differently in everyone, depending on individual susceptibility. Leaky gut symptoms are inflammatory symptoms that may include:
    ● Brain fog
    ● Digestive problems
    ● Autoimmune disease
    ● Allergies
    ● Skin problems
    ● Chronic pain
    ● Mood and mental health issues
    ● Fatigue
    ● Food allergies and sensitivities
    ● Inability to absorb nutrients, causing nutrient deficiencies despite consuming the nutrients in food

    How do I heal my leaky gut?

    Every case is different, so you should work with a healthcare practitioner to address your leaky gut. The general steps include:
    1. Address the lifestyle root causes of leaky gut and dysbiosis
    2. Eat a healthy and anti-inflammatory diet
    3. Kill gut infections and improving gut immune function
    4. Use supplements that support the gut lining, such as 30 B Biotic and L-glutamine

    Currently, there is no FDA-approved treatment for leaky gut. While healing leaky gut tends to improve overall health and reduce inflammation, it may not fully cure conditions associated with leaky gut.
