Glutamine is a very important amino acid and the one that our body needs the most. In theory it should constitute half of the body's total requirement for amino acids.
Maintaining a healthy intestine and for restoring the intestinal mucosa
The muscles and the brain
Helping to strengthen the immune system
Helping to control blood sugar
Helping cells produce energy
Amino acids can be broken down into ‘essential’ (i.e. that cannot be produced by the body and are therefore taken from an external source) and ‘non-essential’ (i.e. that are produced by the body itself using the essential amino acids). Glutamine has a peculiarity of its own because, even though it is a ‘non-essential’ amino acid and can therefore be produced by the body itself, it often needs to be taken as an additional supplement as the body does not produce it in sufficient quantities.
Glutamine can be found, in foods such as meats, soya, dried fruits and beans, but to take a sufficient quantity on board, simply through diet, is difficult. This is why we created the My Gastro supplement.
Glutamine is essential from many points of view: it helps muscles work better; it renders the brain more alert; it helps the body to control blood glucose levels and it boosts the white corpuscles – – but above all it plays a very important role in the intestines.
It is vital, in fact, for repairing the gastro-intestinal mucosa and recreating normal intestinal function. It helps normalize absorption enabling the body to have energy. It is for this reason that Glutamine is vital in the prevention of intestinal disorders.
FUNCTIONS OF THIS SUPPLEMENT
A particular feature of the My Gastro supplement is the combination of Glutamine a very important amino acid, with FOS (Oligofructose) which has a pre-biotic function, providing fiber and good sugars for feeding probiotics, the good bacteria that make up the bacterial flora.
The beneficial effects on the intestine, muscles, brain, immune system and on the control of blood glucose levels are therefore boosted by combining Glutamine with FOS.

(My Gastro) :
I have just started to take Gastro MB together with other supplements. I think I can feel already a difference but I'll come back with more feedback once I'm sure about it.
So far, it seems that my hunger is more controllable and I don't have strong sugar cravings as before.
