Anyone Ever Have Sugar Cravings? by: Angie Fenstermaker

Glutamine is an amino acid that helps build and maintain muscle and we commonly associate glutamine to weight lifting and/or body builders (it helps reduce muscle deterioration).


Glutamine may also help reduce cravings for sugar and refined carbs. Glutamine has a stabilizing effect on blood sugar levels: “when the levels are low, glutamine suppresses insulin to prevent further decline of the sugar levels.” It also stimulates the release of glycogen to help increase the blood sugar to normal levels. Another added bonus: Glutamine can increase our naturally occurring growth hormones! The fountain of youth!
