This valuable amino acid has been called brain fuel. L-Glutamine is one of the few compounds able to cross the blood-brain barrier and participate in brain chemistry. L-Glutamine has been shown to promote the efficient functions of the brain and promote clear thinking by absorbing the waste product ammonia. It often helps raise I.Q. and improves the learning abilities and memory recall in children.
Dr. Guberman uses L-Glutamine extensively in digestive disorders such as colitis, irritable bowel syndrome and leaky gut syndrome. It has been shown to be a prime nutrient for the lining of the digestive track and promotes the healing of most digestive disorders. Dr. Guberman recommends L-Glutamine in easy to take powder form. L-Glutamine is one of the mighty missing nutrients in our processed and cooked foods.
