Is L-Glutamine good for Acid Reflux and GERD? Can you treat your digestive problems with L-Glutamine?
Glutamine is an amino acid and found in our bodies naturally. Glutamine is distributed by the blood to all the organs that need it and it is produced in the muscles. Amino acids might help gut function and support the immune system.
Glutamine is also needed some other important chemicals such as glucose.
When to take it?
It doesn’t really matter when to take it however some people suggest taking it before each meal but nothing we can see suggests it has to be taken with food. Start with 10g and increase it to 30g if you think 10g wasn’t doing anything.
L-Glutamine Reviews for Acid Reflux
1- Ashley – from Birmingham
Did anyone try Mega Doses of L-Glutamine? I had really bad reflux about 12 months ago and managed to heal my gut using L-Glutamine, Slippery Elm and A basic diet. Since then I’ve been back in hospital on strong antibiotics and anaesthetic which has caused the reflux to return. I’m 2 days into mega doses of L-Glutamine and getting good results. Wondering about peoples opinion on the link between leaky gut and reflux as well.
2- Raj – from Manchester
Glutamine – Restores stomach lining. I believe it helps good bacteria re-colonize and takes hold.
3- Monika – from Brighton
I take 20mg of L-Glutamine, a capsule of slippery elm and 25k strands of probiotics once or twice a day. It all seems to help, however, add a digestive enzyme in there before each meal.

Anyone have a bad reaction to l glutamine?
Does anyone have a bad reaction to l glutamine? I had a severe wave of depressing feelings yesterday for no apparent reason. This hasn’t happened in a long time. I also took 2 doses of l glutamine yesterday for the first time in a while. Not sure if it’s a coincidence.
Glutamine was helpful for my GERD
I recently started taking papaya enzyme pills and L glutamine for my GERD. They worked great for a little over a month. I thought I had my symptoms under control but now I feel like I’m back to square one. 😓 I used to take pantoprazole and really don’t want to have to go back to pharmaceuticals.
Glutamine helpful for acid reflux
I just started the process a couple of days ago. I tried it before and it helped me get regularity.
Do you recommend it?
Someone earlier posted about glutamine and slippery elm. I had never heard of either of these until I just recently joined this group. People taking glutamine and slippery elm…. is this something your dr. recommended or did you start trying on your own? How much do you take and how often? Are you on a PPIs? Any other info on glutamine and slippery elm or any other supplements you suggest would be very helpful. Thank you so much.
