How L-Glutamine Helps Heal Your Gut

But Wait, There’s More…

I’ve been told befcell_questionmarkore, “If you don’t recognize the ingredient, it’s probably not good for you!” -well here I am to prove this concept wrong. Rather than writing off ingredient’s with big, foreign, or funny sounding names, it’s time to start learning some new words and what they mean in relation to your body. It’s always important to do your own research anytime you begin taking a new supplement or medicine so that you’re aware of what you’re putting into your body, and WHY. We’re here to tell you about one of our favorite commonly unrecognized words -L-Glutamine.

WHAT is L-Glutamine? L-Glutamine is 1 of 20 amino acids, as most amino acids are known for aiding specifically in the restoration and growth of muscle tissue, L-Glutamine is uniquely known for it’s use as fuel for the cells in your gut lining. The cells in your intestinal wall are able to absorb it directly and utilize it more quickly than any other amino acid. L-Glutamine supports the lining of your intestinal wall by aiding in the production of healthy intestinal mucus and Secretary Immunoglobulin Type A (SIgA) as well as tightening the openings in your intestinal wwater.splashall itself.

Bonus: Not only is L-Glutamine the superhero of gut restoration with it’s powerful tissue repair ability, but it also acts as a co-transporter in our Clinical Strength Hydration formula. L-Glutamine works alongside sodium to pull hydration directly into your cells, allowing for rapid hydration to occur. Basically, L-Glutamine gets a trophy for MVP by pulling together all of our hydration and gut health efforts into one complete package.

WHY is L-Glutamine in re:iimmune®? Obviously the definition, description and benefits of L-Glutamine speak for themselves, but the reason it was chosen to be a part of re:iimmune®’s recovery formula is because it works directly inline with the very mission and purpose of re:iimmune® itself. When re:iimmune® was first created by Dr. Miller, it was created with the concept of illness recovery in mind. The epicenter of our immune system lays within our digestive tract, just as most of our ailments also stem from the state of our guts. With an amino acid that is able to go in and build up damaged intestinal tissue and tighten the walls of our body’s immune system, we have a fighting shot at warding off illness and recovering more efficiently.

As if the power of digestive specific cell repair wasn’t already enough incentive to bring L-Glutamine into the mix, it’s ability to aid in the hydration process is another major bonus to it’s resume. Hydration is obviously a key component to recovering from illness and staying well. Hydration changes the way we feel, think, and act. It has the power to strengthen your immune system, help you sleep more soundly, lower cholesterol, think more clearly, and even brighten dull skin. When the formula for re:iimmune® was first set into motion, Dr. Miller was determined to find an alternative to sugary sports drinks and expensive and unnecessary hospital visits as a means to keep her patients hydrated. L-Glutamine is a key ingredient which helps bring our hydration formula to a clinical standard while also allowing it to remain sugar free.

Whether L-Glutamine is a new word to you, or you’ve been well versed in it’s properties for years, it’s important to us that we explain why we use what we do, because each ingredient was hand picked to help you get better, better™!
