The Basics

Glutamine is an amino acid that helps diminish sugar cravings, plays a vital role in gastrointestinal health, supports a strong immune system, promotes muscle tone and enhances mood and mental clarity.

This “super” amino acid is concentrated in the brain, skeletal muscles, gut lining, lungs, heart, kidneys and liver and provides a dynamic source of fuel for the whole body. It supports overall health with its huge range of benefits.

What it does

Helps stabilize blood sugar levels which is especially helpful if you are looking to kick your sugar habit and reduce your cravings for high-glycemic carbohydrates.

Nourishes the cells that line the gut and is essential to maintaining a healthy gastrointestinal tract – a key factor for a healthy immune system.

Helps to synthesize the neurotransmitters in the brain which can help relieve depression and fatigue, elevate mood and enhance relaxation.

Helps improve brain agility, focus, concentration, memory and alertness.

Helps build protein for strong muscles, making it a favorite for those who work out regularly.
