Have you heard about the incredible health benefits of L-glutamine? First used in powder form by people in the fitness industry (including bodybuilders) who were looking to preserve muscle tissue, L-glutamine (also simply called glutamine) is an amino acid that is a building block of protein and needed by your body in large amounts.
The most common original uses of glutamine powder were to meet the following goals: to lose weight fast, burn fat and help build muscle.
While that remains the case, science now shows that glutamine benefits are abundant. It also promotes digestive and brain health, boosts athletic performance — plus it’s helpful in treating intestinal issues and leaky gut.
It is one of our top three most recommended supplements overall for treating leaky gut and/or building a lean body.
L-glutamine benefits your overall health by supporting gut function and digestive processes. It can be beneficial if you have a digestive condition, such as:
- irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- an inflammatory bowel disease like Crohn’s disease
- ulcerative colitis
- supports digestive system
- leaky gut or any of the issues associated with leaky gut (like joint pain, rosacea or any type of autoimmune response)
It’s worth noting that the man famous for discovering the Krebs cycle in the body (also known as the “citric acid cycle“) was the first person to recommend taking L-glutamine for gut-related issues. That’s because Sir Hans Adolf Krebs — a German-born British biochemist who received (with Fritz Lipmann) the 1953 Nobel Prize for Physiology — found that it helped improve a healthy gut-related immune response. Additional research supports this finding.
