19 Jun Can glutamine be used to detect leaky gut syndrome
Intestinal permeability, also known as leaky gut syndrome, maybe the underlying cause of allergies and intestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome. Researchers at the University of Burgundy France believe that leaky gut syndrome maybe linked to protein and lipid glycation induced by modern food processing. As a result they suggest that dietary supplements such as glutamine and /or curcumin can improve the condition by inhibiting inflammation and oxidative stress. Metabolic Solutions offers the sucrose breath test to assess your intestinal function.
