GLUTAMINE

Glutamine is a fabulous for blocking sugar cravings according to Joan Mathews Larson, PhD

"Glutamine... is a fabulous amino acid when it comes to blocking sugar cravings," notes Joan Mathews Larson, PhD, author of "Depression-Free Naturally".

"I call it 'God's gift to Hypoglycemics' because in emergencies it can be absorbed directly into the blood stream, bypassing your intestinal
tract."

"Relief from cravings comes swiftly by opening a capsule and dissolving it in your mouth under your tongue (it tastes mildly sweet.)

"Inside your brain, glutamine converts to glutamic acid, the only other source of glucose available to the brain.

"So it becomes a great alternative source of brain fuel that will stop cravings set off by glucose levels that are dropping too low.

"(Alcoholics using glutamine this way can and do successfully stop cravings for alcohol, which speaks loudly to these cravings having a hypoglycemic basis.)" Read the entire article | Email this article
