Hey, guys. Axe, Nutritionist and of Functional Medicine. Today, I want to talk to you about the benefits of Lglutemine powder.Lglutemine is an amino acid that is very, very abundantthe human body, especiallyin your musculoskeletal tissue. Lglutemine is used, primarily today . . . actually, firstit was used mostly by peoplethe fitness industry, people that were looking to preservemuscle tissue. So both loose weight, burn fat and gain muscle were the most common usesof Lglutemine powders today. You can see Lglutemine is basically this sort of whitepowder here. You can see on the tip of my finger. But, it's just an amino acid thatis a building block of protein.
But there are many benefits of Lgluteminealong with . . . I mentioned building muscle, igloo weight, burning fat. In addition tothat Lglutemine can also help heal and repair your gut. So, there are millions of peopletoday struggling with a condition called leaky gut, which, basically, is the main cause todayof autoimmune disease. It's the main cause of thyroid issues like Hashimoto's disease.It also causes arthritis, skin issues like psoriasis. And, so that's caused by leaky gut and Lglutemineis the number one amino acid your gut needs to help heal and repair leaky gut. So, ifyou have any type of digestive issue whatsoever,
what I believe by far the most important aminoacid you needyour diet is Lglutemine on a regular basis. So, again, using Lglutemineis great. What I recommend is typically between 2 to5 grams twice daily. There are two forms of Lglutemine. You can get regular Lglutemine,in what's called its free form, and that should be taken with food ideally because, basically,if it's not taken with food, it's not absorbed as well. There's another type of Lgluteminecalled transalanyl or alanylLglutemine, and that's an amino acid attached to anotheramino acid which basically manes you're going to digest it much better. You can take iton an empty stomach, but it's really best
taken your meal right before and after workouts,in terms of it really supporting your metabolism, both weight loss as well as building muscle,retaining muscle. So it really keeps you from losing muscle.So, let's say for instance, you have an elderly person and they are starting to waste awayfrom kikexia, which is from cancer, and they're wasting away over time, Lglutemine is thenumber one supplement they should be taking that's keeps them from having muscle wasting.If you're an athlete and you're out there working really hard but you know, becauseyou did a lot of training, that you're, you're already burning up some muscle, Lgluteminekeeps that from happening.
Again, if you struggle with digestive issues,whether it's irritable bowel synome, inflammatory bowel disease like Crohn's disease, ulcerativecolitis, diverticulosis, diverticulitis, leaky gut or any of the issues associated with leakygut, like joint pain, rosacea, any type of autoimmune response, Lglutemine can supportyour bodyhealing.
