Glutamine for Your Gut


www.ironmanmagazine.comBodybuilders often take extra glutamine, a conditionally essential amino acid, because it appears to improve recovery and has been linked to growth hormone release.

Because it is also the main fuel for the small intestine, supplementary glutamine is one of the better ways to shore up gut problems, according to the April ’12 Bottom Line Health.

Start with about three grams a day, and work up to 10. Constipation is a sign that you’re using too much.
