  • Promotes sharp memory and mental health

  • Widely considered "brain food" for its role in learning and memory

  • Also supports your body's natural stress recovery abilities

Feed your mind to maintain memory and mental sharpness with the natural amino acid nutrition of Swanson Premium Glutamic Acid. Although it is found in tissues throughout the body, glutamic acid is best known as a “brain food,” thanks to the fundamental role it plays in learning and memory. As one of the most abundant neurotransmitters in the human body, glutamic acid helps neurons communicate efficiently. But it does a lot more than that. Glutamic acid can be converted as needed into glutamine, a crucial amino acid that can often be depleted during times of increased stress or intense physical exercise. Our veggie capsules are an economical source of premium-quality glutamic acid for your mind and body.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Ridiculous. . My Fault This may sound ridiculous, given that it is supposed to help with mental clarity and focus, but I can't review it because I keep FORGETTING to take it LOL! - it is to be taken between meals. But, I don't eat regularly. I eat when I eat. Hard to time "between meals" for me. Try it if you eat on a regular schedule. March 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brain Power ! I was introduced to this, many years ago. It works great ! As all herbs, it takes a short time to act...but the wait & results are worth it. You don't need to buy the "high priced" product. Swanson has the best price & product ! March 25, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works Well Enough! My family & I have used this over the last few weeks & found we all had more energy, but by the end of dinner, we all wanted to sleep. Still for the daytime when your wits are needed, it's a good product. Thanks Swanson! February 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A find! I'm so glad I found this product again many decades later! It was first prescribed to me by a German psychiatrist while I was under a great deal of stress previous to my doctoral exam. It is a wonderful nerve nutrient and helped me to pass the exam with flying colors. I am using it again today for age related reasons. October 29, 2014
