Glutamine requirements are increased in the body during periods of ill health.
In particular supplementation is important for improving “gut barrier” function or treating “leaky gut” syndrome.
The cells of the gut lining - the enterocytes, obtain much of their growth material through utilising glutamine as a fuel and this requirement increases during illness.
Practitioners frequently recommend daily doses of between 1 to 2 grams of this preparation when the integrity of the gut wall is compromised, as is often the case in IBS, Candida albicans overgrowth (and other microflora imbalances) and some chronic conditions associated with poor gut function.
