    Can’t see how a amino acid conflicts with the anti-candida diet, is there any big no-no regarding taking a supplementation of this daily?

    I would have thought L Glutamine was beneficial.

    The cells of the intestine utilise L Glutamine so I think it leads to better intestinel health. As I understand it, it’s not an essential amino acid, but if your body is in a catabolic state (fighting infection / healing etc) then it becomes essential to the process.

    It comes from meat and veg mainly.. including such as spinach, so should be ok to supplement??

    I’m not an expert though.

    “Glutamine plays a role in a variety of biochemical functions, including:

    -Protein synthesis, as any other of the 20 proteinogenic amino acids
    -Regulation of acid-base balance in the kidney by producing ammonium
    -Cellular energy, as a source, next to glucose
    -Nitrogen donation for many anabolic processes, including the synthesis of purines
    -Carbon donation, as a source, refilling the citric acid cycles
    -Nontoxic transporter of ammonia in the blood circulation

    Glutamine-enriched diets have been linked with maintenance of gut barrier function and cell differentiation, suggesting glutamine may help to protect the lining of the gastrointestinal tract or mucosa. People who have inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn’ s disease) may not have enough glutamine, but two clinical trials found taking glutamine supplements did not improve symptoms of Crohn’ s disease.”
