Treat weakness and loss of muscle mass caused by cancer treatment.Glutamine, a vital dietary amino acid, fuels tissue healing after cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation. Scientific evidence supports oral glutamine (typically 10 grams/day) to alleviate symptoms and enhance the quality of life for cancer patients. It reduces mucosal damage such as mucositis and stomatitis. A high-protein diet combined with disaccharides like sucrose and trehalose aids glutamine absorption, reducing painful mucosal symptoms. Topical and oral glutamine are preferred for promoting mucosal healing during and after cancer treatment.
Treat neuropathy (numbness or tingling hands and feet) caused by chemotherapy.
Treat nausea (feeling like you’re going to throw up), vomiting (throwing up), and diarrhea (loose, watery bowel movements) due to cancer treatments.
