Ive read just as many posts / articles that disagree with each other.
 
Whats the verdict on this one?
I want to try the elemental diet vivonex I just read that its very high in  glutamine "an important nutrient"
 
There are articles saying it may also worsen Crohns symptoms!!

First of all, are L-glutamine and glutamine the same thing? Secondly, where have you read it may worsen CD symptoms? (not doubting here, just would like to read the info, too) Lastly, if you are concerned, maybe try adding it to your Ensure for a few days to see if you notice any difference?

Thanks! :-)

L-Glutamine vs. Glutamine Peptides what works better?

Glutamine supplementation and intestinal permeability in Crohn's disease
http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qa3762/is_200005/ai_n8900207

"In the Crohn’s patient glutamine may also
be metabolized into citrulline, which is converted to arginine, a substrate for nitric oxide sythesis.
Excessive nitric oxide has been shown to contribute to tissue injury and inflammation in Crohn’s
disease."

Well it was "foe" for me! I tried it several years ago, and quickly got quite ill with D. Never touched it since then, and don't plan to!
