February 8, 2013 — Integrative Therapeutics, an industry leader in digestive supplements, adds high-potency Glutamine Forté to their Digestive Wellness suite of products.
Glutamine Forté delivers a therapeutic level of L-glutamine (5,000 mg (5 g) per serving) in combination with Theracurmin, a novel, water-dispersible form of turmeric with dramatically enhanced curcumin bioavailability.
Jeremy Appleton, ND, director of scientific affairs for Integrative Therapeutics, explains, “Maintenance of intestinal permeability has global effects throughout the body. Both glutamine and curcumin have been shown to inhibit oxidation and modulate other cellular processes that influence intestinal cell health, making Glutamine Forté an ideal combination formula for supporting healthy intestinal permeability.”
L-Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid and an important fuel for enterocytes. The benefits of oral supplementation have been extensively studied. L-glutamine has been shown to restore gut barrier function, promote healthy intestinal permeability, support a healthy immune system function, and support healthy tissue repair mechanisms.*
“Daily recommendations for L-glutamine can reach up to 30 grams daily in certain conditions,” explains Appleton, “That’s why we’ve formulated Glutamine Forté in a powdered drink mix format that allows for flexible dosing and customized patient care.”
