Question:
Is it true that glutamine powder can help protect the stomach when taking NSAIDs like ibuprofen?

Answer:
While glutamine has been promoted as protecting the stomach and gastrointestinal tract from NSAIDs, the evidence for this is very limited and multiple doses may be required, as explained in the "Glutamine" section of the Muscle Enhancer Supplements Review >>
