L-Glutamine and immune system

  1. L-Glutamine and immune system


    I'm sure this has been talked about hundreds of times, but I just want to say how great of a supplement L-Glutamine is for the immune system.

    Twice this summer I've gotten pretty sick, and immediately started using 20G of L-Glutamine per day, in 2 divided doses (along with zinc), and seriously was only sick for 3 days before becoming completely better. I've always read about how it can effect the immune system but never gave it a shot until now.

    This stuff really works to get rid of the nasties... I think I want to start using it daily now for the sole purpose of helping to prevent sickness.

  3. It's definitely great for intestinal issues. Heals up the endothelial lining very quickly.

  4. Will it raise bloodsugar and will I get an insulinresponse if its "eaten" by the GI?

  5. From the reports on pubmed that I've read, only 15g is needed daily (or at least that's what was used in the study), to produce an immune response. I take 10g x 2 doses (20G total) throughout the day and am using MST's Ajipure L-Glutamine. I just mix it with BCAA's for taste and down it goes.

    Interesting... any reports of this combating GI issues with high doses of protein bolus or maybe forskolin?

  7. Not that I know of, but it would be a pretty benign experiment. I used to give it to my wife who had ulcerative colitis. It would provide some fast relief..at least until the inflammation overpowered it. I've used it to recover from food poisoning and it soothes the gut with astonishing speed. May have to test it for immune boosting this winter.

  8. I've just started to give l-glutamine to my dog as well. He has a sensitive stomach and is prone to gastroenteritis. Going to keep some around the house at all times now.
