Bio-L’Glutamine


Bio-L’Glutamine

For mind, muscle and gut

Benefits

  • Bioharmony® Bio-L’Glutamine is a nutritional supplement that may assist in supporting the digestive system as a source of fuel for the intestine cells and the repair of the intestine.  Bio-L’Glutamine may assist the immune function, mental stimulation, wound healing and muscle repair.

  • Your body usually makes sufficient glutamine for its needs, but the stress of heavy exercise and injury can lead to a deficiency of this amino acid, vital for the development of muscle mass, the immune system, normal brain function and the digestive system.

  • Clinical studies show that glutamine supplements strengthen the immune system and reduce infections.  They also help to protect the mucosa of the gastrointestinal tract, and may be helpful in Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
