Metagenics Glutagenics

Metagenics Glutagenics features Glutamine (an amino acid), licorice (processed to negate any adverse licorice effects) and aloe vera (with the laxative properties removed) combine to effectively support the integrity and healthy function of the gastrointestinal lining for healthy digestion, immunity and overall wellness. 9.16 oz. The three key ingredients found in Glutagenics are glutamine, deglycyrrhizinized licorice (DGL), and aloe vera. These ingredients comprehensively support the integrity and healthy function of the gastrointestinal lining.

Glutamine is an important amino acid. L-glutamine is the form found in foods, supplements and the human body. Glutamine is found usually where protein is found in foods for example here are the following approximate quatities of glutamine in popular foods:

  • Eggs: 4.4% (0.6 g per 100 g of eggs)
  • Beef: 4.8% (1.2 g per 100 g of beef)
  • Skim milk: 8.1% (0.3 g per 100 g of milk)
  • Tofu: 9.1% (0.6 g per 100 g of tofu)
  • White rice: 11.1% (0.3 g per 100 g of rice)
  • Corn: 16.2% (0.4 g per 100 g of corn)

It is part of the proteins in your body and involved in immune function and intestinal health.As your intestines are a major part of your immune system glutamine is an energy source for your intestinal and immune cells. It also helps maintain the barrier between the intestines and the rest of your body and aids with proper growth of intestinal cells. Glutamine plays an important role in immune function. However, during illness or injury, the body may not be able to produce enough of it. Glutamine supplements may help improve immune function and preserve protein stores in the body.

Metagenics Glutagenics:

• Supports a healthy intestinal lining, which is essential for healthy digestion, healthy immune function and overall health.

• Supplies high levels of the amino acid glutamine, which provides both a source of fuel and precursors for growth to the rapidly dividing cells of the intestinal lining.

• Provides a concentrated licorice extract that has been processed to remove glycyrrhizin, reducing the risk of adverse effects associated with licorice.

• The processing and removal of the bitter principles in aloe prevent a laxative effect.

• Powdered form for ease of use and flexible dosing.

• Features natural flavors for improved taste.

I use to take two of the 40mg Nexium a day for acid in my throat and GI issues. Which really didn't solve my issues. A integrative Dr. suggested this product about 6 years ago, and I've used it ever since and been off of my Rx since then. The minute I get that acid feeling or heartburn, I take and it goes away within a minute . I've told so many friends and family members about this, who have tried and now use it instead of their OTC or Rx . My neighbor has Barrets , is off of his medication and uses this for his reflux . It's totally worth the money !!

We started giving these supplements to our 6 year old autistic son due to his gastrointestinal issues as we had read that it helps with “leaky gut”. It has made a difference. It seems he’s absorbing the nutrients from his food better (we can tell in various ways) and he has more normal stool verses loose stool. He has fewer GI issues in general.

Best healer for acid reflux. We've had reflux for years and take Prilosec for relief. I wanted to go with a more holistic approach and this works! I take it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach to get its full effects. I can tell a huge difference. I also take it when I get home from my day in a semi empty stomach to really heal my gut. This works! I feel better, my symptoms have lessened and it makes me feel better than taking a medication every day. It’s worth the money and works!

I ordered this product based on the positive reviews. Last year I had an Endoscopy procedure that revealed a abnormal sphincter and a irritated esophagus . I went on a PPI regimen along with liquid antacids. I did change my diet to include no alcohol. This did help some to eliminate the inflammation but at times I would have flareups. I did not like taking a PPI and the consumption of antacids. I received this product March 2 ,2018 and started taking it the next day. I took one dose in the morning and one at night. I did this for one week and then reduced to one dose. per day. I have not taken any antacids or Omeprazole as of to date March 25. I did discuss this with my doctor and will be giving him feedback after 1 month, he is very interested in my results. From the reports that I read this product is not a band-aid , it helps to replenish the mucous lining of the esophagus and stomach. I am so very satisfied with this product.

This brand has absolutely the best flavor I have tried! My gut healing had been long and slow with many supplements, this is one of the few that I actually didnt mind taking. It really helps move things along without any cramps, bloating or diarrhea. I can really tell when I miss a few days, it works great.

This is a terrific product!! It has helped my intestines run smoothly, tastes great and dissolves well. There is also NO ARTIFICIAL SWEETNER ADDED as in similar products.

Reviewed by Suzanne , 01/12/2018

The best health product I have ever bought!! I was taking Nexium for my acid reflux. Even with the Nexium, I was waking up in the middle of the night with terrible reflux. Immediately when I started taking this product, my reflux almost completely disappeared. I took one or two doses daily for about a week and then cut it back to once a day. Within a few weeks, I felt great and was back to eating normally. Now, I only take the product when I feel reflex flaring up again. Sometimes I may go a couple of weeks without taking it at all. I am thrilled with the results and if I could rate it 10 stars I would. Although it is expensive, it is worth every penny of it!

After months and months of antibiotics my digestive system wasn't doing to well. After about a week of taking Glutagenics my gut started feeling soooo much better. A month later it feels better than it did before. My nausea and acid reflux went away almost completely. I won't go into much detail about my bowel movements, but they have been consistent and amazing since I started this. Highly recommend for anyone with digestive issues.

Maybe this would work wonders, but I can't drink it all. I hate milk and this tastes like watered down milk. I tried a couple times.... making it with less or really cold water. Nothing worked. It needs to be done on an empty stomach and it took me forever just to drink half. (The really cold water worked best). It could have been all in my head, but I would get too nauseated to finish. I will give it a break and maybe try again in a couple weeks. It was too expensive to just throw it away.

I used the entire canister.
Only one teaspoon Glutagenics, each morning, with one tablespoon of Metamucil Orange-Smooth in about 8oz of water.
This definitely helped my mucous production internally, but towards the end I started to feel like maybe I was overproducing based on the consistency of my bowel movements/etc. Be sure to consult a doctor and/or nutritionist while you add/alter supplements to your diet.
It didn't upset my stomach, and the flavor basically "vanilla-izes" and sweetens anything it's in. No it does not taste at all like licorice. Not even a little bit. If this tastes like licorice, then vanilla really tastes like honey...or marshmallows or something - that would be the same comparison.
I guess the worst I can say is that it has a placebo effect? Which still isn't bad. I mean, if a placebo works, I don't care so long as I feel better. Just never tell me it's a placebo and we'll be copacetic.

My naturopathic Doctor recommended this after I was scoped and had an abrasion in my esophagus and inflammation in my stomach. I am sure it is a great product. However, I have a problem with drinking it. At first there is no taste but at the end it has a fruity milk taste. I am not a milk drinker so I don't like it.
