I know that hydrogenated oil is bad in general but the L-glutamine that I'm taking is the best one due to the slow time release for 12 hours compared to regular L-glutamines that lose its effectiveness in three hours but has some hydrogenated oil in.

It shouldn't be that bad right?

L-glutamine supplements should come in either a pure white powder or capsules. I've never seen anything that had hydrogenated oil in it. What's the name of the product?

And yes, theoretically, hydrogenated oils and other bad fats are pro-inflammatory.

I did use just the regular form of L-glutamine products but there weren't that effective in terms of efficiency and absorption rate.

the one that i use is called Glutamine-SR by MHP and ever since using this product I realized that when I'm under stress or whatever I retain much muscle as possible and recovery rate is just great. And because I do moderate amount of weightlifting but not for competition anymore, I figured this one might be okay but just contains hydrogenated oil.

Unlike the other regular glutamines that last only close to two hours, this one lasts and works to 12 straight hours.

If you think it's bad I might just give it away to my friends lol. It's not worth getting a flare up from taking this.

Hmm... interesting. I read their product information... sounds great, but I'm wondering if they have any scientific proof to back up their claims.

Glutamine - SR Review by Nick97204


Product: Glutamine - SR

Date: Saturday 27 January, 2007

Review:


After buying this stuff, I have renewed appreciation for label-reading. Take a look at the ingredients list. You'll see 'hydrogenated vegetable oil' also known as trans fat. I used it for a while, until one day I took a look at the label and realized what I was doing. It helps reasonably well, hence 3 stars, but considering it has trans fat in it, it's not worth taking. You're better off taking a lot of regular glutamine which doesn't contain chemicals which are bad for your heart.


Of course, the amount you're ingesting is relatively low, but if you have any heart health concerns, it may be worth going back to plain ol' pure l-glutamine.

Thanks, princesa.

I was realized that you are in remission with alternative medicine. It's rare to find someone who's not taking prednisone or immunosuppressant in this forum. How are you doing?

And I think Aloe Vera Juice helped me a lot.

I'm doing well. For the most part, I've been in remission for about eight years.
 
I do take a maintenance ASA, but I credit most of my success to rebalancing the gut ecology (eliminating or reducing bad gut flora and replacing with good), reducing inflammation with high omega-3, using natural healing supplements, dietary changes and regular exercise.
