L-glutamine is the most plentiful amino acid in the body, a Krebs cycle intermediary of particular importance to intestinal and immune cells, and one known to be depleted following strenuous physical activity.1 L-glutamine supplementation has been shown to prevent an exercise-induced increase in intestinal permeability, by promoting tight junction stability, upregulating anti-inflammatory cytokine production, and suppressing inflammation, notably NF-κB activation.2 L-glutamine also stimulates protein synthesis pathways, while inhibiting protein degradation.3
Curcumin has well-established anti-inflammatory effects with multiple molecular targets, including NF-κB, as well as cyclooxygenases and lipoxygenases.4,5 Curcumin supplementation has been shown to mitigate damage to muscles following exercise, reduce pain due to delayed onset muscle soreness, and enhance the recovery of muscle performance.6 Theracurmin specifically has been shown to prevent both an increase in creatine kinase and muscle degradation following eccentric exercise.7 Theracurmin has been proven effective for symptom relief and a reduced need for rescue medication among participants with knee osteoarthritis in a prospective clinical trial.8 L-glutamine and Theracurmin combined target multiple mechanisms associated with muscle repair and function.

The product is a brilliant yellow colour due to the turmeric.
Ensure to drink enough fluid before, during, and after exercise. Consult a health care practitioner if you are following a low protein diet. Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, taking antiplatelet medication or blood thinners, have gallstones or a bile duct obstruction, or have stomach ulcers or excess stomach acid. Keep out of reach of children.
Caution is advised when taking with anticoagulant medications. Curcumin has been shown to enhance the effect of some chemotherapeutic medications, as well as inhibit the effect of others, and should only be used under medical supervision by those receiving chemotherapy. A reduction in the dose of medications used to treat diabetes may be necessary, as curcumin enhances the effect of insulin. Similarly, L-glutamine has been shown to reduce levels of HbA1c and fructosamine among well-controlled diabetics, thus requiring monitoring of anti-glycemic medication use.10
