My son has small intestine damage. His is actually caused by giardia (parasite) and he is not celiac, so far as we know. His doctor recommended glutamine amino acid in order to have heal his small intestine damage.

Has anyone used glutamine to help heal the damage to the intestine? I am having a nutrient test and am curious to see if I could use some.

Yes, it was instrumental in helping my own gut to heal. I highly recommend it.

I use L-Glutamine as well. I only wish I had started using it when I was first diagnosed so that I would have healed a little quicker.

I use it too. In the past I have found it very helpful with reducing exercise induced inflammation... really helps reduce muscle soreness.

I use a L-Glutamine powder as well. I don't take it as often as I should but if I suspect I've been glutened I'll take it.

Do you you have a certain dosage you take? Is powder better than a capsule?

I found that I was not deficient in glutamine, so I guess I have enough of it. My son (10)takes 2 tsp of powder. He needs to finish 1 pound or 500 grams. Then he will be done. The adult dose on the package is 1 tsp 3X a day.
