L-Glutamine – Superhero in Disguise

If you have digestive issues or you suffer from leaky gut, learn to love the word “L-Glutamine”.  It will be your saving grace.  L-Glutamine will be the knight in shining armor, the Holy Grail, if you will, to saving your gut!  This post is based off my own personal opinion, and backed by some fact checking.

L-Glutamine is the main ingredient in the Repairvite.  It is an amino acid that is literally the fuel your gut lining needs.  So if you’re gut is not working at 100%, you need to give it fuel – kind of like Popeye and his spinach.  The best way to have it absorbed and working to it’s full potential, is to deliver it directly!  That is why powder form is the best way to take it, as opposed to pill.  It is important that you drink this on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning, with water.  After you consume it, you wait a half hour or so, letting it do it’s job.  This will help your gut produce more of the mucosal lining that it needs, allowing the gut to heal.  Once the gut starts to get stronger, toxins can no longer entire your bloodstream because the “holes” in your gut have been repaired.  This helps keep the inflammation in your body down, thus, helping you to feel much, much better!  Also helps maintain your blood glucose levels, but if you’re diabetic, ask your doctor about taking it!  When you start taking L-Glutamine, it will give you more energy, and honestly, I can certainly say that’s true.

Interesting thing I found out – when we are exposed to large amounts of stress, our bodies need glutamine.  We burn up our natural reserve of glutamine in stressful situations.  When our bodies are broken down, glutamine is a much needed supplement.  It helps with concentration, focus, and intellectual ability!  They should probably start teaching this stuff in high school, or at least offering it in the lunchroom!

There are no known side effects to taking this supplement, although taking it long term can cause it to build up in your body.  This can be avoided by taking B12 supplements.  All in all, it sounds like a pretty fantastic thing!  I can definitely already tell a difference.

Let me know your stories!

I’m a 34 year old kid at heart. I reached a low point in my life where I felt like I needed to take control before I didn’t have the choice, and that’s when I decided that I needed to change my lifestyle. It’s going to be my life long goal to always achieve optimum health…I am still young after all. Here I am, over one year into my Paleo journey, and I never felt better.
