Take 1 to 2 scoops with 10 oz (295 ml) of water. Do not exceed 3 scoops in a day.
EHPlabs L-Glutamine helps your gut health, promotes lean muscle protein synthesis and enhances the natural release of human growth hormone. Research studies have also shown that L-Glutamine boosts immunity and reduces the effect of DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). Our L-Glutamine is HPLC-tested to ensure it is the highest quality pharmaceutical grade glutamine. L-Glutamine from EHPlabs is the most abundant amino acid found in muscle cells and comprises more than 60% of skeletal muscle.

L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in muscle cells and comprises more than 60% of skeletal muscle. Of the 20 amino acids, glutamine provides the most versatility in amino acid metabolism and immune function and plays a vital role in intestinal health. However, the need for glutamine can often exceed the ability to produce it, which is why adequate intake and supplementation can be of great benefit.

Improves immunity and optimises intestinal health.
Glutamine is highly utilised by the immune system, as glutamine is essential for the proliferation and function of immune cells. Several factors, such as increased physical activity, can lower levels of circulating glutamine, making these individuals more susceptible to disease. Several studies have shown that it increases glutamine concentrations and supports the immune system ³.
Glutamine also plays an important role in digestion. This is because the gut is where glutamine is metabolised the most ⁴. Glutamine is responsible for helping restore and maintain the intestinal barrier function of the small intestine ⁴. Glutamine also helps protect the gut from damage and injury ⁴. As a result, supplementation with glutamine can help improve gut health and even help reduce the symptoms and severity of irritable bowel syndrome (PDS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and digestive problems often associated with celiac disease.
Increases lean muscle mass and reduces delayed muscle soreness.
L-glutamine is an amino acid that serves as a building block for protein, helping with muscle growth and exercise performance. According to a recent meta-analysis, glutamine has a significant effect on weight reduction ⁷. This can be supported by a study in which participants took glutamine during six weeks of strength training and showed an increase in fat-free mass and improved strength ⁸. Another study showed that eight weeks of glutamine supplementation resulted in increased upper and lower body strength, increased muscle power and reduced body fat ⁹. Findings also show that supplementation increases the speed of recovery after exercise, reduces muscle damage and reduces DOMS ¹⁰¹¹.
