L-GLUTAMINE POWDER is provided as scoopable powder in a wide mouthed tub. Each Each level scoop (provided) contains 1000 mg of the free form amino acid, l-glutamine.
This amino acid plays many vital roles within the body, as regards metaboiism, but the most important role that it plays for the cancer patient is its ability to protect the lining of the gut from the toxic effects of chemotherapy. Commonly chemotherapeutic agents attack actively growing cells. This is why chemotherapeutic agentgs can kill cancer cells, but unfortunately, they can also kill healthy cells that are actively dividing which is why we see hairloss and diarrhea commonly associated with the administration of chemotherapy.
The cells of gut and the cells of the skin and hair follicle are some of the most actively dividing healthy cells in the body. Some studies have shown that giving l-glutamine before, during and/or after chemotherapy can help to reduce this chemotherapy-caused damage to the bowel lining. This damage commonly results in the diarrhea that we see following the administration of chemotherapy or radiation of the head and neck. This is one reason why l-glutamine is recommended by oncologists for patients with cancer of the head and neck who receive radiation, because these patients develop a mucositis which is a moist inflammation of the lining of the mouth and esophagus, which is very painful. It is suggested that a water solution made from l-glutamine rinsed around the mouth can help with this oral mucositis from radiation damage.
Its recommended that you give the l-glutamine along with a potent probiotic like RxBiotic and the RxClay. RxClay has been shown in a study to help dogs with intractable diarrhea from chemotherapy.
