l-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. In times of metabolic stress, glutamine is utilized by the body for tissue repair, gastrointestinal tract support, and natural defense system function. Glutamine plays a large role in maintaining healthy intestinal integrity by enhancing the intestine's protective mucosal lining.

L-Glutamine has a rapid turnover rate in your body, so it is necessary to take the L-Glutamine every day during times of inflammation.
I recommend adding the L-Glutamine Powder to a liter of water and sipping throughout the day.
