Not a question, a caution.

Some sources of glutamine are hydrolized wheat protein. Wheat intolerance/gluten allergy people need to be very careful if they're going to supplement with it.

We just emailed Thorne, and they confirm that their Glutamine source is not from hydrolyzed wheat protein.

Thanks for the question!

We updated the article and added links to some current research into leaky gut syndrome. We hope this helps clear any confusion for those of you who emailed questioning the premise of this area of focus:

Is Leaky Gut Syndrome Real?

We would also add that this is a subject that is highly relevant to weight loss.
