Amino Acids and Sulphur:

Glutamine and Sulphur (MSM)


Glutamine is the most important amino acid in our bodies. It is integral for the formation of Glutathione, the master antioxidant, and for the growth of immune cells. Two biggies!

As well, glutamine is the most important nutrient for the lining of the small intestine and colon. Leaky gut syndrome is a common problem, and this is one of the big reasons that making sure your digestive system has adequate amounts of glutamine is key.

Glutamine is also brain fuel and reduces fatigue. It helps with detoxification and is a good friend to the liver. It prevents muscle breakdown and delivers and removes nitrogen as necessary.

Also, if you're changing your lifestyle and eating more healthily, glutamine can help control your cravings for sugar-rich foods, alcohol and cigarettes.



MSM stands for Methyl Sulphonyl Methane. This is sulfur. And sulfur is integral to your life.

Sulfur wears many important hats. It is a big helper to many functions in your body. Here are some of the reasons why it is so essential for us:

  • Helps in myelin repair
  • Relieves muscle cramps
  • Reduces inflammation thus promoting healing
  • Helps reduce pain and repair scar tissue
  • Aids in removing toxins from cells, and is anti-bacterial and anti-parasitic.

MSM is a naturally occurring sulfur compound in our bodies. It is one of the safest substances in biology and has a toxicity level similar to water.
