A number of common vitamin and mineral supplements are helpful for maintaining a healthy gut. Like the rest of your body, your digestive tract is made of cells which require a continual supply of the right nutrients to keep functioning.
L-glutamine is one of the most abundant amino acids in the body and serves multiple purposes, such as optimal gut function and neurophysiology. It helps prevent inflammation and infection in the gut and protects the mucous membranes in the digestive tract from bacteria.
L-glutamine can be found in beef, chicken, salmon, dairy, cabbage (in its fermented form), tofu, spinach, lentils, and many other foods. It can also be taken in a supplement, like our Digestion Restoration 360, and can help reduce symptoms of IBS, intestinal spasms and repairs the gut after irritation.
