L-Glutamic Acid 500mg & Zinc 20 mg Capsule

Offers:

  • L-glutamic acid 200mg
  • Zinc sulphate 20mg

 

L-glutamic acid:

Pharmacodynamics:

Our body uses l glutamic acid to create proteins and support the production of super-antioxidant glutathione. In addition to being one of the building blocks in protein synthesis, it is the most widespread neurotransmitter in brain function, as an excitatory neurotransmitter and as a precursor for the synthesis of GABA in GABAergic neurons. Free glutamic acid cannot cross the blood-brain barrier in appreciable quantities; instead it is converted into L-glutamine, which the brain uses for fuel and protein synthesis.

Pharmacokinetics:

It is absorbed from the lumen of the small intestine into the enterocytes. Absorption is efficient and occurs by the active transport mechanism. Active transport is the movement of molecules across a membrane from a region of their lower concentration to a region of their higher concentration—in the direction against the concentration gradient or other obstructing factor.

Dosage:

One capsule thrice a day. 

Mrp: 175 INR

Indication:

  • For fastest recovery 
  • Prevention of cell damage
  • Improves mental capacities
  • Healing of ulcers
  • Wilson’s disease

Contraindication:

Hypersensitivity to L-glutamic acid is a contraindication and should not be used if allergic to the product.

Drug interaction:

  • Lactulose helps decrease ammonia in the body. Glutamine is changed into ammonia in the body. Taking glutamine along with lactulose might decrease the effectiveness of lactulose
  • Medications used to prevent seizures affect chemicals in the brain. Glutamine may also affect chemicals in the brain. By affecting chemicals in the brain, glutamine may decrease the effectiveness of medications used to prevent seizures.

Side effects:

  • Children: Glutamine is possibly safe when taken by mouth appropriately. Children aged 3 to 18 years should not be given doses that are larger than 0.7 grams per kg of weight daily.
  • Cirrhosis: Glutamine could make this condition worse. People with this condition should avoid glutamine supplements.
  • Severe liver disease with difficulty thinking or confusion (hepatic encephalopathy): Glutamine could make this condition worse. Do not use it.
  • Monosodium glutamate (MSG) sensitivity (also known as “Chinese restaurant syndrome”): If you are sensitive to MSG, you might also be sensitive to glutamine, because the body converts glutamine to glutamate.
  • Mania, a mental disorder: Glutamine might cause some mental changes in people with mania. Avoid use
  • Seizures: There is some concern that glutamine might increase the likelihood of seizures in some people. Avoid use.
