We don't offer a Glutamine powder but that's one I want to do very soon. The price on it had been very volatile the last year and a half so I didn't want to do one when raws were up and then the price plummet and be stuck with high cost inventory. But its one that we're definitely wanting to do now. Until then, I would suggest the NOW Foods brand.I have been doing some research and I think I should add Glutamine to my supplement regiment. I would be interested in hearing your recommendation @Hyde also @sns8778 I did not see it listed on the SNS website ?
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid (building block of protein) in the body. The body can make enough glutamine for its regular needs. But during times of extreme stress (the kind you experience after heavy exercise or an injury), your body may need more glutamine than it can make. Most glutamine is stored in muscles, followed by the lungs where much of the glutamine is made.
Glutamine is important for removing excess ammonia (a common waste product in the body). It also helps your immune system function and may be needed for normal brain function and digestion.
You can usually get enough glutamine without taking a supplement because your body makes it and you get some in your diet. Certain medical conditions, including injuries, surgery, infections, and prolonged stress, can lower glutamine levels. In these cases, taking a glutamine supplement may be helpful.
Many people with cancer have low levels of glutamine. For this reason, some researchers speculate that glutamine may be helpful when added to conventional cancer treatment. Supplemental glutamine is often given to malnourished cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments, and sometimes used in people undergoing bone marrow transplants.
Glutamine seems to help reduce stomatitis (an inflammation of the mouth) caused by chemotherapy. Some studies suggest that taking glutamine orally may help reduce diarrhea associated with chemotherapy.
More clinical research is needed to know whether glutamine is safe or effective to use as part of the treatment regimen for cancer.
I am a big fan of Glutamine and have been for many years. I just don't talk about it much on here because for the longest time there was so much Glutamine bashing on here just because it seemed to be the cool thing to do at the time - which was ridiculous because its clinically proven to help with a wide variety of things and is even used by many of the top burn centers in the country to help with tissue repair.
I just stayed out of it when people were dogging it, but my private thought was wondering if they were illiterate or just going along with the bro crowd because they weren't using anywhere near the clinically researched dosages, yet were complaining that it didn't work.
I would go with 30 grams per day either split - 10 grams 3x per day or 15 grams 2x per day.
