Feature Summary

L-Glutamine with Theracurmin includes two complementary nutrients to support intestinal and musculoskeletal health, especially in response to exercise.* L-glutamine is the most plentiful amino acid in the body, a Krebs-cycle intermediary of particular importance to intestinal and immune cells, and one known to be impacted by strenuous physical activity.3 L-glutamine supplementation may help maintain normal post-exercise intestinal permeability by supporting tight junction stability, and maintaining normal cytokine production, notably of NF-κB.*4 L-glutamine also helps maintain healthy protein synthesis pathways while supporting normal protein breakdown, and may also support healthy and comfortable muscle recovery following exercise.*5-7

Curcumin may help support normal function of multiple molecular targets, including NF-κB, as well as cyclooxygenases and lipoxygenases.* It also helps maintain intestinal integrity by supporting normal tight junction protein expression.*8-10 Curcumin supplementation may help support healthy muscle recovery following exercise, maintain post-exercise muscle comfort, and support normal muscle performance.*11 Theracurmin specifically has been shown to support healthy creatine kinase levels and normal muscle protein breakdown, supporting joint comfort following eccentric exercise.*12,13 L-glutamine and Theracurmin both support multiple mechanisms associated with normal muscle use, repair, and function.*14
