No. I used VPX pharmaceutical l-glutamine powder. Just powder, no pills. I only dosed that high during the Spring season of lightweight crew because my training volume was so high. There are a lot of companies that make just l-glutamine powder with no additives, I just happened to use VPX. Right now I think I have Optimum Nutrition.

@forever, was all that in 1gram pills? So you'd be taking five at a time? I'm just wary of that much white powder in those caps dumping into my guts

About 2 grams a day, seen a slow but definite improvement in intestinal health.

My guts are fine as well, but I've taken as high as 10g in the past, 5g for post workout recovery and 5g for GH release before bed.

This guy at my health food store says that he cured his Crohn's with L-Glutamine, 20g a day; 5g 4x a day.

Not to hijack, but is there not appreciable amounts in bone broth?

Zym I used Perm-A-Vite by Allergy Research Group per my doctor at the time, to heal my Leaky Gut and it worked. It has a fair amount of l-Glutamine so this may help you figure out your dose.

I did pre and post testing and have also done follow-up testing. The testing isn't necessary per se, I'm just telling you that I did it out of curiosity and out of disbelief (denial) that I actually had l.g.! I had no overt GI symptoms but... indeed I did have it. Anyway, the PermAVite worked.

My doc had me on a hefty dose of this (along with a clean diet of course).
I used 2 servings (Tablespoons) twice a day for 60 days and then 1 servings twice a day for another 3 months. Less time might have worked but I just kept at it until I could do the re-test. My doc did recommend using it for at least 90 days though.

One serving/Tbs has 3.7 g L-Glutamine. 4 x 3.7 = 14.8 g total for the initial 60 days

The other ingredients are helpful though too, not just the L-Glutamine. I have several family member, friends and clients who have also used this quite successfully.

Oh and I should add that I used a ton of VSL3 along with the PermAVite.

Good luck to you

I think that higher doses (up to 20g/day) help cure acute symptoms, while lower amounts (1-5g per day) are effective for prevention. I use it to cure herpes labialis and find it extremely effective in dosages of 20-25g per day with absolutely no gut problems. I use only Glutamine manufactured by the japanese aminoacid giant Kyowa, which is thought to be one of the best manufacturers.
