L Glutamine Gives Me Diarrhea, I Swear My Body Is Anomaly Just Info For Others!

Recommended Posts

So everyone and their mother talks about how good l glutamine I decided to give it a shot. I took half a teaspoon once a day in the morning 45mins before I eat. After three days, I woke up one morning quickly having to use the bathroom with diarrhea, which I've not had in months.

It sucks because I do admit I feel far more energetic, this could also be why I haven't slept too well the past few nights....

judt wanted to have everyone hear that there could be a few of is out there who may not tolerate l glutamine, what a bummer!

this is interesting, my doctor suggested I get some of this as I was telling him I am exhausted some days. I did get some marked gluten, dairy, and soy free  but haven't tried it yet. it's really hard for me to try new things, I'm always afraid of getting sick. 

 

I hope you're feeling better! 


gluten free since 11/12  

dairy and soy free since 1/13

chocolate free since 6/14

 

I miss my chocolate!!!   but I'm not sick anymore, and that's what really matters  :)

sup julissa!

 

yea I bought the powdered Jarrow brand, also nothing in it but pure l-glutamine.  I COMPLETELY agree on always feeling ill, but instead for me its usually what leaves my body is how I know I've reacted, such a slow torture game so far,  it helps me to keep on a whole foods diet where I can mess with the variables. 

 

I don't think I was really ever "ready" to try it, just for how many months you eat and do the same things I just said heck with this, I'll know if it makes things worse, you know?

 

I'm not saying dont do it, in fact for how much energy I was getting I was about to sing its praises.... until I realized my bowels are possibly also getting this energy and just flushing everything out, ouch!

my health journey continues.....

I'm sorry you weren't well.  I've never heard of L-glutamine causing a problem in people.  Are you sure it was the cause and not something else, or even the usual ups and downs that happen in the first half year or so of recovery.

 

Perhaps try it again in a couple of weeks and see how it goes...

sup guys!

 

Yeah I was surprised that my body reacted so quickly,  the only other ingredient that makes me scratch my head is I had ate a small cup or two of Enjoy life's chocolate chips, but that was nearly 4 days prior.   Since I have cut both out of my diet,  and since the l glutamine wasn't cheap, ha, I will try again in a few weeks.

 

My last "Glutening" was back in july, I've been eating paleo for 6 months, autoimmune paleo for 4.  gluten, dairy, soy, grain free for a year.
