We've been using L-glutamine for several years now. I've found that it helps control sugar cravings and eases a gurgly tummy.
My husband has also taken it to build muscles and has lost inches from his waist. I recommend this product.

I got this potent 1,500 mg. L-Glutamine tablet for my son to take to his office and take on a mid-day break. We both use at least 5 grams (5,000 mg.) of L-Glutamine in the powder form mixed into our Healthy Morning Cocktail for optimum mental acuity. However, my son is using his brain at about 150% pedal-to-the-metal power on different projects throughout each day, so his brain needs more fuel for the afternoon. With this handy 1,500 mg. tablet, he only needs to take 2 or 3 or 4 tablets to get from 3,000 to 6,000 mg. If he were using the 'conventional' common 500 mg. capsule, he would have to be taking 3 times that many pills.
We have found over the years that we like to use a minimum of 2 grams, but preferably around 5 grams of L-Glutamine at one time for quick, effective results. NOW brand's 1,500 mg. tablet makes this more easy and convenient to achieve the potency we want. If you have no trouble swallowing a large tablet, I can recommend this fine product. It works for us.

I love L-Glutamine. It is my #1 favorite Brain Food that enhances every brain activity / function, and noticeably so. The common L-Glutamine capsules are 500 mg., so to get my desired dosage of 2 to 5 grams, I need to take 4 to 10 of those 500 mg. capsules. I'm a good swallower, so that part is not a problem. However, I already take a large comprehensive nutritional supplement program, so keeping the number of tablets or capsules down in number is something I like to do whenever and however possible.
This NOW brand L-Glutamine is Triple Strength. So I can take 1/3 the number of 'pills' in order to get my desired amount. Obviously, NOW makes and sells this 1,500 mg. potency, because there is a demand for the higher, robust potencies of L-Glutamine from a significant number of people. Good job, NOW.
I got a bottle of these 1,500 mg. L-Glutamine tablets for my son to take to his office, so when his brain is hungry for a healthy boost, he only needs to take 2 to 4 tablets for fast food that improves brain functions while satisfying hunger and cravings. All told, the L-Glutamine gives him a good afternoon. How are your afternoons?

I like fasting in between meals and this products keeps me balanced. I take it with my morning vitamins before yoga. It keeps me going strong all morning until I drink my power shake.
