In reply to L-glutamine helped me with anxiety!, posted by mmb on October 15, 2004, at 17:30:51

Multivitamine tablet dissolved in water - 100% RDA of all vitamins and minerals
300 mg Magnesium + B1, B12, B6 - capsule dissolved in water
1g L-glutamine (on empty stomach)

Amino acid mix - 1 tablet all aminoacids
Multivitamine tablet dissolved in water - 100% RDA of all vitamins and minerals
B vitamin complex - 1 capsule
Ginkgo biloba - 1 capsule

At night
1g L-glutamine (on empty stomach)
300 mg Magnesium + B1, B12, B6 - capsule dissolved in water

So far so good. It works


That's good that you are taking capsules and liquid form ..and even dissolving them first to ensure absorption. (I'll have to stop being lazy <g>)

I guess some people just tablet form and not on empty stomach for the amino acids..and either waste them or need huge doses comparatively for any effect.
From what I understand people who continue to feel great on l-glutamine are usually fairly active..even athletic.

so Q1. Re you fairly active?

Q2. Are you fairly young under 35? This may be important as there is some thought that the higher levels of estrogen , progesterobne protect from glutamate toxicity

Q3. good cortisol levels? not too low at least!
(see abstract at bottom)

A deficiency in glutamine synthetase might be responsible for the high extracellular concentrations of glutamate that are indicted as a likely trigger of epileptic seizures, the researchers noted.


Effect of hydrocortisone on myelin basic protein in developing primary brain cultures.
Ved HS, Gustow E, Pieringer RA
Department of Biochemistry, Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA 19140.
The hormones hydrocortisone (HC) and triiodothyronine (T3) are known to regulate myelinogenic parameters in cultures of brain cells. However, the effect of glucocorticoids on the myelin-specific metabolite, myelin basic protein, has not been previously studied. In the present studies we show that the concentrations of myelin basic protein (MBP) in developing primary cultures from mouse cerebra are significantly higher in HC (0.3 microM)-treated as compared to untreated cultures after 15 days in vitro. Further, this effect of HC on MBP appears to be T3-dependent. Since HC stimulates oligodendroglia to produce MBP, the effect of HC on the activities of the enzymes, glutamine synthetase which is primarily associated with astrocytes, and acetylcholinesterase, which is primarily associated with neurons was was determined. HC stimulated both enzymes, suggesting that all 3 cell types may be regulated by HC.
