L-Glutamine Powder... how much shoudl I take?

Posted by Michelle on September 21, 2002 at 15:20:03:

Hi... I just purchased some L-Glutamine powder. It is NOW brand and I got it for $32.00 for a pound of it. Anyway, not sure how much to take. The bottle says to take 1/4 tsp. between meals, 1-3 times daily. I have severe leaky gut and consequent SEVERE irritable bowel diagnosis that was discovered due to the leaky gut. In other words, my uninformed gastro doctor labeled me IBS when it should be labeled LEAKY GUT!!!!!!!!!!! Also, when it says in between meals, about how long should you take the L-Glutamine BEFORE AND AFTER MEALS? Like, if I get up in the morning and take it, how long should I wait to eat? Also, how many hours should I wait to take it after I eat? So, how much should I take daily and when in hours should I take it around meals? Thanks much..

Therapuetic dose of L-glutamine for LGS is 5-10g per day between meals. Take this in divided doses throughout the day. 30 minutes before meals or 2 hours after meals would be good timing. I am learning that L-glutamine will not work for everyone that tries it. I find that Primal Defense is a much more applicable food supplement for leaky gut as almost everyone gets benefits from it to some capacity. Perhaps the L-glutamine only works when other factors are taken into consideration---SR, Diet, exercise, ect. However, it IS worth a try. Give the glutamine at least 1 month to start kicking in

Michelle,

You might want to start off slowly with this to see how you do. I have found that it can cause or exacerbate constipation, even at low doses. I can get away with taking about 1/16th or less of a teaspoon at a time, but any more than that and I regret it. I've been taking it off and on for 13-14 months and every time I restart it, I get the same results, constipation-wise. I'm more inclined to have constipation than loose stools. If you go the other way, you might welcome that effect!
