Most of these products are extremely expensive and often quite difficult to acquire. There also is the added problem of how much l-glutamine do these products contain and whether they contain a reasonable quantity? Perhaps it might be a better option to purchase the pure supplement as a stand-alone item.
L-Glutamine is a natural amino acid. This amino acid speeds up healing of the intestines and helps to cure a leaky gut.
