This amino acid can end your midday sugar cravings!
That persistent hankering for a midafternoon sweet treat? It’s generally caused by a post-lunch blood-sugar low that can follow a lunch blood-sugar rise. To outsmart these swings, take 500 mg of L-glutamine with lunch. The body converts this amino acid into a healthy source of glucose that fuels the brain and steadies blood sugar, which in turn blunts cravings and boosts energy. Pretty sweet!
