Isa mentioned in another post that A's don't do well on L-glutamine (of course I may have misunderstood her ). In LR it says for A's to take 250-500 mg twice a day to speed up the metabolism.

I'm confused. Should I continue to take it or not?

Also, does anyone have any idea on whether Deflect has a different effect when taken on an empty stomach versus with a meal? The supp's instructions are to take with meals.

Now I'm even more confused...Lola posted this link http://www.dadamo.com/forum/archive5/config.pl?read=9035
on another thread regarding L-glutamine and A's, posted by Dr. D himself.
Quoted Text

l-Glutamine should be avoided by type A and B

Posted By: Peter D'Adamo
Date: Thursday, 3 June 1999, at 10:57 a.m.

In Response To: l-Glutamine and Carbo Cravings??? (Bill (O+) Kehrman)

Glutamine raises cortisol levels, which can be a prolem if you are types A or B and under a lot of stress.

Peter


I wonder why, then, he would include it under the supps for A's to take for Obesity/Low Metabolism in LR? Because as I understand things, A's tend to gain weight when their cortisol levels are too high...

I don't have an answer because I would like to know the same about L-glutamine.  I was taking some for a while because I thought it sped up the metabolism.

Thanks Mike. Any idea what "other" conditions this is good for?

I'm specifically looking for things to help in circulation/tissue repair. The Determinator doesn't have a check box for this, specifically.

Excellent! I'm already taking 2 grams of bromelain and I'll get the Connectivar.

I'm still curious on the final word for A's regarding L-glutamine and weightloss...I've stopped taking it until I know more.

I have been taking Glycosia (?) and Cortiguard instead, and I notice a significant change in my food cravings.

not such a good idea, being an A, and according to what Dr D mentioned.

Except...Dr. D also mentions in LR4YT for A's to take 250-500 mg of L-glutamine twice a day for Obesity/Low Metabolism...page 228.

in that case I d go ahead and take it, unless it were to raise my cortisol levels or I were high stressed, etc.
yet another individualized approach.

Well, since the Cortiguard and Glycocsia seem to be working...and I do tend to be overly stressed, I think I'll abstain from the L-glutamine for now. Thanks for following up, Lola!

I just read about L-Glutamine and it being an avoid for type B.  I am presently taking 5000 mg a day of it to reheal my intestinal lining.  I have not noticed any stress levels from taking it though.  Should I be concerned?

The text that you have quoted from Dr. D. means that it is perfectly ok for type A and B to take L-glutamine provided that you are not and have not been under excessive/prolonged stress. The supp can raise cortisol levels, but NOT excessively.

To answer your question luanaflacco, you should not be concerned, unless your stress levels have been through the roof.

If the recommendation for L-Glutamine is 200mg twice a day then is 500mg once a day ok?  That was the ONLY dosage I could find.  I dont seem to notice any problems with it but after reading this thread wanted to ask.  Thanks.

Drea.... the l'glutamine is able to accelère the highspeed working brain in A's nd AB's...wouldn't recommend this, this product might be ok for O's and their leaky gut probs and also for their brains ....and their sweet tooth...but also can this product elevate cortisollevels..... a no-no for A's..... we the AB's can have merely similar replies at that issue likewise the O's....
=catecholamines  

so far so good Peter....la.laa.laaaa...= is as usual right here , my testresults are nearly 100% equal to Peter's recommendations....btw...better also for A's & AB's to use l'tyrosine instead ...yay.....sluggish metabolisme...

About 15 years ago after having gone through endoscopy and discovering polyps in my lower colon and open sores in both my esophagus and duodenum I was advised to take L-glutamine to help heal the tissue.  

At the time I was under a tremendous amount of stress.  I was told to take it on an empty stomach first thing in the a.m. and wait 30 min to an hour before eating anything.  While using it, the only thing it seemed to so was exasperate the symptoms.  

I abandoned the supplement after several months of usage despite all the information I was reading directing me to tough it out and give it time to heal me.

I always knew intuitively that it didn't agree with my system.  It's a blessing to finally discover exactly why that was so.  It also reconfirms that I should be more mindful of my innate knowledge of my body and its sensitivities.

To Azredhead:

You mentioned being able to find only a 500mg dose of a supplement when two 200 doses per day are recommended.

You might consider a pill splitter -- an inexpensive device to cleanly and safely cut pills in half.

This might move you close to your desired dose with the supplements available to you.

Good luck.

I have been taking glutamine to help repair sore ache muscles after a work out. It works great for that, but recently, I have not been able to sleep at night....I wonder if this is why? I find myself tense at night. Did I here there were other supplements, that a B can take to aid in a hard work out recovery? I like that glutamine helps to break down stored up lactic acid so that I can get through my cardio the next day.

Why not try reflexology, there are many reflexology products to wear under your feet. That can naturally make your body produce more growth hormone. Cover flat parts with a cloth if you feel pain so much that you won't wear.
