    To answer this question, we're going to look at our Gut L-Glutamine powder.  Since we know exactly how it's made.

    So the first thing to know is that there are a couple ways you can make amino acids like L-Glutamine.

    1. You can make amino acids by extraction
    2. It's also possible to make them via enzymatic reaction
    3. And you can even produce amino acids by chemical synthesis

    But for Gut L-Glutamine we avoid ALL those methods.

    Instead we use an innovative process of natural fermentation that consistently produces the highest quality L-Glutamine.

    And if you want to spend 10 seconds geeking out with us:

    • Gut L-Glutamine is produced by fermentation of plant-based materials, namely glucose, which is a type of sugar.
    • But it is not a fermented product in the sense that say sauerkraut, kimchi or kombucha are.  Meaning, L-Glutamine itself is not fermented, but rather produced by fermentation.
    • And just in case you’re wondering: there is no glucose or sugar, in the end product.

    If you have more questions about about L-Glutamine, don't worry, because we got you!  Here are the answers to some of the other most popular questions we get from readers and customers:

    Evidence Based

    An evidence hierarchy is followed to ensure conclusions are formed off of the most up-to-date and well-designed studies available. We aim to reference studies conducted within the past five years when possible.

    • Systematic review or meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
    • Randomized controlled trials
    • Controlled trials without randomization
    • Case-control (retrospective) and cohort (prospective) studies
    • A systematic review of descriptive, qualitative, or mixed-method studies
    • A single descriptive, qualitative, or mixed-method study
    • Studies without controls, case reports, and case series
    • Animal research
    • In vitro research
