Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't think it's working bought for my husband, after taking it for 2weeks he felt no ddifference. Not so motivated to continue taking it anymore but don't want bother to return it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trans Fat My review will change after magnesium stearate has been removed from your product. Normally I would give all 5's. Break open a cap and drop it in water and see what happens, it won't dissolve. Please replace with 100% silica. "

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product At my age I no longer lift weights or run marathons... much less do any running. But I do pool work-outs and with this product it keeps these ol' muscles working. I especially like that it is pharmaceutical grade...right now my body sure likes these super Swanson products at these great prices. Thanks Swanson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High grade This is pharmaceutical grade, the best that you can buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Have to take less of these than other brands to get the same effect plus they use veggie caps instead of gelatin caps, which my stomach hates. Excellent value for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I needed This product seemed to do what I needed it to do and it was inexpensive enough to buy 3 of them at one time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must Amino Acid Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid. I take it everyday in combination with AjiPure L-Alanine for even better absorption with no side effects. I wish there was an AKG formula for better muscle delivery, but at this price who can complain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Investment When my Naturopathic Doctor told me to start taking this, I was happy to see that Swanson had exactly what I needed!
Date published: 2012-11-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! For me L-Glutamine is a supplement that I don't notice unless I STOP using it. I tend to lift with the heaviest weights manageable so I definitely break down my body the best I can. I noticed once I stopped taking it that I was struggling to recover. I typically take 2 capsules first thing in the morning and another 2 immediately before bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I love everything I have purchased from Swanson. Everything is always just as described and just what I want in a supplement. I come back regularly to buy more of the same as I always know I am getting the best quality and value for my money. Thanks Swanson!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An awesome supplement I use one capsule with water on an empty stomach daily and my bowels are fit for the day's activities. I feel well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT for muscle recovery I'm a distance swimmer and have really noticed that adding this amino acid has helped with muscle recovery after a hard swim. I highly recommend this amino acid for athletes who are serious about physical performance. This one is a real keeper for us!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's too early for me to review this supplement however, I have taken L-Glutamine before and I really notice the difference with my post-exercise recovery.
Date published: 2011-01-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I do not often write a review although I have been using Swanson products for a long time. But I just have to say I found this product extremely helpful in my overall health. Especially helpful in my stamina and in everything the product says it is helpful for. And there was a noticeable difference from the first day I started taking it. I found myself being able to run with renewed strength. Overall strength and stamina definitely improved. I would recommend this product to anyone. Just cannot say enough good about it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the Intestines This product is very good. I've learned during my time with ordering from Swanson that they select some really great suppliers and Ajinomoto is one of the best. I've been taking this product 2 caps twice a day, 2 gms daily, for about 1 year to help rejuvenate my colon. I'm using this along with Swanson's Aloe Vera capsules along with Swanson's probiotic, Golden Flake Fiber, and a couple of others and I have experienced great results so far. I'll continue using the Glutamine this same level for another 6 months and then drop back to a maintainence level after that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Glutamine Preparation I have tried several kinds of Glutamine preparations, and found this one to be the easiest on my stomach and guts. The soothing effect helps take even two capsules toghether with no stomach upset. The price for such a superb preparation is quite right too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for a short time-there were no side effects I ordered this back in May and started to use it. There were no side effects in the short time I used - and the product was delivered in a timely fashion.
