Glutamine is involved in maintaining a positive nitrogen balance (an anabolic state) and also aids rapidly growing cells (immune system lymphocytes and intestinal cell enterocytes). Glutamine has recently been the focus of much scientific interest. A growing body of evidence suggests that during certain stressful times, the body may require more glutamine than it can produce. Under these circumstances glutamine may be considered a "conditionally essential" amino acid. In addition, glutamine is a regulator of acid-base balance and a nitrogen transporter.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

L-Glutamine Powder is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product and best price I have used this product for many years and take a scoop with water everyday, usually at night. It keeps my body alkaline and not acidic. It curbs my appetite for sweets, great for after I eat bad stuff like greasy foods, etc. I have found this the best place for price and order it quite often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BIG BRAIN BANG FOR THE BUCK I have used L-Glutamine in tablets and capsules just about forever. Since Amino Acids became readily available in powder form in the 1980's, I have also used L-Glutamine Powder. It is easy to use, because it has virtually no taste, and it mixes easily into any liquid. Even though L-Glutamine is available today in 1,000 mg. capsules and even 1,500 mg. tablets, since I like to take at least 6 to 10,000 mg. each morning, it is much more convenient for me to stir a heaping scoop / tsp of L-Glutamine Powder into my morning healthy green drink. I don't even know it's there, but it gives me a tremendous helping of nourishment that I value for my brain. Funny how things evolve. Today, most people seem to be taking L-Glutamine for their skeletal muscles; however, when I began using L-Glutamine, it was as brain food / nourishment. The articles and books way back in the day were about L-Glutamine for the brain. Today, there is reading material everywhere about L-Glutamine being of value throughout the body. Personally, along with several other renowned brain nutrients that I take daily, I realize excellent, noticeable positive effects from my L-Glutamine Powder. I have used a couple of other brands of L-Glutamine Powder that I have purchased from Swanson Health Products. While the actual powders have differed a little in texture/consistency, I haven't noticed any difference in taste, miscibility, or positive results. I like the NOW Brand, and I am fully satisfied using this product, which Swanson sells at a very good price. Works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality product I am happy with the powdered L-Glutamine: it's easy to scoop, the taste is not noticeable with juice (I drink it in water) and the price/volume is great for heavy users. I wish the scoop was affixed outside ))) it's difficult to find it in the jar.
