Improved performance and small intestinal development of broiler chickens by dietary L-glutamine
powder that people take as a health supplement can also have some remarkable effects on blood sugar.
"Our trial showed that the median number of pain crises over 48 weeks was lower among the patients who received L-glutamine
than among those who received placebo," the authors write.
As mentioned earlier, Patients with the disease suffer from a wide variety of complications such as ACS, dactilytis and recurrent infections which can seriously hamper daily life and dramatically reduce life expectancy.1,6 Given that SCD causes widespread mortality and morbidity research into therapies such as L-Glutamine
, should be further encouraged.
The randomized, placebo-controlled phase III trial on which the approval of L-glutamine
was based (GLUSCC09-01) included patients aged 5-58 years with sickle cell disease or beta-0 thalassemia who had at least two episodes of painful crises during the 12 months before screening.
supplementation prevents myenteric neuron loss and has gliatrophic effects in the ileum of diabetic rats.
The 5% CSS-supplemented media contained DMEM with high glucose, 5% CsS, 2 mM L-Glutamine
, 1mM Sodium Pyruvate, 40 [micro]g/mL Gentamicin, and 10 mM HEPES.
improves skeletal muscle cell differentiation and prevents myotube atrophy after cytokine (TNF-a) stress via reduced p38 MAPK signal transduction," Journal of Cellular Physiology, vol.
Research also suggests Sustamine is absorbed more than 200% better than standard L-glutamine
. Sustamine provides essential support during times when the body undergoes large amounts of stress.
Jurkat and Raji cells were propagated in RPMI 1640 medium supplemented with 10% foetal bovine serum, 2 mM L-glutamine
, 1 mM pyruvate, 10 mM HEPES, MEM Non-Essential Amino Acids 10[micro]/ml, 50[micro]g/ml penicillin and 50 [micro]g/ml streptomycin (all reagents from Life Technologies, Grand Island, NY, USA).
In brief, the transparent fraction of the mononuclear cells was separated and added to a threefold volume of Dulbecco's Modified Eagle's Medium-F12 (DMEM-F12, Biowest, France), supplemented with 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS) (BioIdea, Iran), 1% penicillin/streptomycin (Biowest, France), and 1% L-glutamine
Scientists at the University of Tennessee used L-glutamine
as a model water-soluble bioactive compound and developed a delivery system that may find novel applications in supplementing bioactive compounds in functional foods.
