Not sure if there's enough l-glutamine in Absorb Plus alone to give you the benefits you need. I'd have to check on that one. Jini also offers a supplement called MucosaHeal you might find helpful. Or since it's UP, you might look at her Healing Implant Enema Kit.
I totally understand the impatience for results, but dietary manipulation and natural supplements in general are not as fast acting and dramatic as pharmaceuticals - particularly steroids. I'd say you'd need to give it at least a month of following a diet before you could tell if it was really helping or not.
I also understand the sugar cravings. If you're having half a candy bar or a
cookie once or twice a week, you're way ahead of the game. Most people consume far more. But you should look for healthier options, if possible. Fruit or gluten-free
cookies with natural sweeteners like stevia would be a better way to feed your cravings for sweets. Breaking the Viscious Cycle allows baked goodies with almond flour and honey.
I'm currently only taking Natren's Healthy Trinity. All of Natren's products are top notch. I've also had good luck with Custom Probiotics' six strain powder.
