Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body and is vital to its proper function. Glutamine is especially important for the gastrointestinal system, as the body’s intestinal mucosa requires glutamine to function properly. The mucosal gut lining can be damaged by processed foods, artificial ingredients, and other inputs that the body has difficulty digesting, leading to intestinal permeability or “leaky gut” issues. Leaky gut can cause widespread inflammation and may be the root cause of a host of seemingly unrelated problems, including new and intensified food sensitivities, abdominal pain, autoimmune disease, fatigue, skin problems, and even declining mental health.
Ojas L-Glutamine helps replenish depleted levels of glutamine in the body for the maintenance of good health, including healthy intestinal permeability, immune function, and digestion.
Ojas L-Glutamine is pure glutamine (no other ingredients) and mixes easily with water, juice, or your preferred delivery method.
This supplement is vegan/vegetarian friendly, non-GMO, and has been third-party tested as free from gluten, soy, wheat, corn, eggs, dairy, yeast, citrus, preservatives, artificial flavor, artificial color, starch, and sugar
Adults: Take 1 rounded scoop daily mixed with juice or water, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
Not for use by infants, children, or pregnant or nursing women. Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are following a low-calorie protein diet. Very low-calorie protein diets (below 400 calories per day) may cause serious illness or death. Do not use for weight reduction in such diets without medical supervision.

Really noticing positive results from this. Trying to heal leaky gut, feel like I'm on the right path with this.
