L-Glutamine supports the liver in an animal study

A high-sugar, Western-style diet can trigger non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

In the lab, doctors fed mice a high fructose, high-fat diet or a healthy high-complex carbohydrate, low-fat diet. Some in each group got 2.1 grams of L-glutamine per kilogram of body weight. After eight weeks, those on the high-fructose diet without L-glutamine had significantly higher levels of liver inflammation, while those with L-glutamine had levels similar to those on the healthy diet.
