I’m sure you’ve heard about leaky gut before. Leaky gut is what happens when your gut barrier becomes compromised to the point of allowing foreign matter from your digestive tract into your bloodstream, where it absolutely should not be. Anyone who is concerned about autoimmunity, food sensitivities, and inflammation, should be paying attention to Glutamine. Glutamine supports and helps to maintain a healthy gut barrier. Your gut barriers is easily one of the most important parts of your immune system. It’s what keep potentially allergenic and inflammatory proteins from entering your bloodstream where they can trigger an immune response. These immune responses can be simply irritating to downright devastating. They can lead to everything from itching, swelling, and inflammation, to allergy development, allergic reactions, and even the manifestation of autoimmunity.
If you want to help balance blood sugar, as well as support healthy weight loss, look no further than Glutamine. Glutamine helps to support a balanced insulin response which in turn helps keep blood sugar levels in check throughout the day. Add to this that Glutamine supports healthy pancreatic function, and you have a powerful aid in supporting and maintaining healthy fat loss. An added bonus is that by helping to balance blood sugar levels, stress hormone levels, such as cortisol, are also positively impacted.
My L-Glutamine supports thyroid and immune system health. By supporting gut barrier integrity, you are making great strides in supporting normal immune function, and therefor, your thyroid. Your thyroid is incredibly sensitive and susceptible to an immune system gone awry. Unfortunately, many inflammatory proteins that a compromised gut barrier allows into your bloodstream trigger immune responses that can damage the thyroid as well. If you have thyroid issues or are concerned about thyroid and immune health, a high quality Glutamine should absolutely be in your supplement cabinet.
L-Glutamine supports muscle tissue repair, especially after workouts. While the fitness community has known this for decades, this is a fantastic trait of glutamine that is often overlooked. Because glutamine is the most abundant amino acid involved in muscle synthesis, it is readily used by the body to help repair muscle tissue that’s been damaged due to to over exercising and over use. If you work out regularly, and feel sore and stiff afterward, glutamine can help support muscle growth and repair after your workouts, and assist with alleviating occasional muscle aches and pains.
Glutamine is a fantastic choice for anyone who:

What is L-Glutamine?
L-Glutamine is an amino acid, and amino acids are the building blocks of protein. The various proteins your body synthesizes out of these amino acids are what makes up most of tissue. Bones, skin, muscles, blood vessels, even your hair and nails; all of these require amino acids like L-Glutamine and protein in order to grow and be healthy.
Is it safe for kids to take L-Glutamine? What about pregnant or breastfeeding mothers?
Because everyone responds to supplementation with amino acids differently, there is not an across the board answer regarding Glutamine’s safety for children, pregnant women, and breastfeeding mothers. As I often do, I recommend working with a qualified health professional if you have questions or concerns about supplementation in these cases.
Should I take L-Glutamine before or after a workout?
I recommend taking L-Glutamine before and after working out. Taken before a workout, Glutamine actually helps satisfy muscles’ demands for glucose and keep blood sugar from dipping too low, which would result in stress hormone release, i.e. cortisol. Cortisol is a catabolic hormone and actually breaks down muscle tissue, so stopping that process in it’s tracks helps to maintain healthy lean muscle and normal blood sugar levels. Taken after a workout, glutamine is essential to help repair overworked muscles as well as build new lean muscle tissue.

You’ll know exactly what you’re getting because all products are 3rd party tested and verified. You may be surprised to know that the supplement industry is not regulated by the FDA and it’s up to the manufacturer to ensure they’re delivering high-quality products that contain what they say they do.
All of the supplements I carry in my store carry the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) seal, meaning they have been 3rd party tested for for purity, quality, potency, and composition, so you can rest assured that you’re getting the key nutrients you’re paying for and that your body needs.
High-potency, pharmaceutical grade supplements to maximize value and impact.
Because I am a licensed physician, the supplements I carry are pharmaceutical grade, meaning they are higher quality and typically higher dosages than you can find in a health food store or online retailer.
This is vital because cost per unit is a key metric to look at when choosing supplements. If you look at a supplement such as my 100 Billion probiotic, you will find that you may need to take nearly an entire bottle of other probiotics to achieve the same potency.
My supplements contain no gluten, dairy, soy, GMOs, preservatives, dyes, or toxic ingredients. You’re not eating these inflammatory foods or toxins so why would you want them in your supplements?! I source all of the ingredients in my supplements from pure, clean sources.
There are a few incredibly rare exceptions where products contain trace amounts of dairy or egg because of the way they need to be formulated, however they are clearly marked on the product page and are in such low quantities that even my very sensitive patients typically have not had a reaction.
The highest quality ingredients in the form that is best absorbed and utilized by your body. The form and formulation of the vitamins and nutrients in your supplements make a difference! I have specifically sourced and formulated the ingredients in my products to be in their most bioavailable forms for maximum effectiveness.
Every product in my store has been personally vetted by me. Not only have I researched and tested every product I carry, I have also worked with thousands of patients to determine which formulations that produce the very best results.
