"RESETTING" for "Weight Loss"
Alright . . . so we spoke about getting the "lymphatic system" flowing so we "can" lose weight . . .
Then yesterday we spoke about how to correct our brain chemicals so we deplete and/or stop our "cravings'.
Now we need to talk about how to "heal" the wall lining of the small intestine from the damage that "lectins" have done . . . which is called "leaky gut".
So one of the best ways to do that is with the amino acid called "L-Glutamine".
Okay . . . so as we know . . . amino acids are the building blocks of protein. And "glutamine" is produced in the muscles (this is just another reason we need to get moving people) and distributed by the blood to our organs that need it. It's the most abundant amino acid in the human body . . . with "Glutamine" helping the immune system and gut function properly.
Now . . . a deficiency of this powerful amino acid can also cause "sugar craving". And "glutamine" has the ability to balance blood sugar levels, which in turn . . . will help reduce and even stop cravings.
"Glutamine" can even help heal IBS because tissues in the intestine use this amino acid as a fuel source to function correctly. It does this by protecting the mucous membrane of the esophagus and intestines and speeds the healing process. It even reduces chemotherapy side effects.
You see . . . the mucous membrane blocks bacteria infiltration during digestion. "Glutamine" can boost the immune cell activity in the intestines . . . helping to prevent infection and inflammation as it soothes the intestinal tissue. And with this . . . it can also reduce intestinal spasms.
The intestinal lining actually uses "L- glutamine" as fuel to create a strong surface for digestion and absorption and this is the most effective treatment to heal the gut lining for those suffering from "leaky gut", malabsorption or inflammatory bowel diseases such as IBS, Crohn's and Ulcerative colitis.
Now . . . how do we become deficient in this amino acid???
Well . . . that would be . . . stress, critical illness, trauma, infection, cancer, gastrointestinal disorders, too little movement and even "too" much exercise.
