L-Glutamine is a powdered form of the amino acid, L-glutamine. It is probably one of the best supplements to help heal the intestinal lining. The lining of the gut where food is absorbed is a single cell wall layer thick, and is often damaged by everyday life, certain drugs and medication, stress levels, as well as certain foods that you might be sensitive to. L-glutamine helps the body heal the junctions between those cells to help make that intestinal barrier stronger and more effective for immune function.
