Hey, guys. Axe, Nutritionist and of Functional Medicine. Today, I want to talk to you about the benefits of Lglutemine powder.Lglutemine is an amino acid that is very, very abundant in the human body, especiallyin your musculoskeletal tissue. Lglutemine is used, primarily today . . . actually, firstit was used mostly by people in the fitness industry, people that were looking to preservemuscle tissue. So both loose weight, burn fat and gain muscle were the most common usesof Lglutemine powders today. You can see Lglutemine is basically this sort of whitepowder here. You can see on the tip of my finger. But, it's just an amino acid thatis a building block of protein.
But there are many benefits of Lgluteminealong with . . . I mentioned building muscle, igloo weight, burning fat. In addition tothat Lglutemine can also help heal and repair your gut. So, there are millions of peopletoday struggling with a condition called leaky gut, which, basically, is the main cause todayof autoimmune disease. It's the main cause of thyroid issues like Hashimoto's disease.It also causes arthritis, skin issues like psoriasis. And, so that's caused by leaky gut and Lglutemineis the number one amino acid your gut needs to help heal and repair leaky gut. So, ifyou have any type of digestive issue whatsoever,
what I believe by far the most important aminoacid you need in your diet is Lglutemine on a regular basis. So, again, using Lglutemineis great. What I recommend is typically between 2 to5 grams twice daily. There are two forms of Lglutemine. You can get regular Lglutemine,in what's called its free form, and that should be taken with food ideally because, basically,if it's not taken with food, it's not absorbed as well. There's another type of Lgluteminecalled transalanyl or alanylLglutemine, and that's an amino acid attached to anotheramino acid which basically manes you're going to digest it much better. You can take iton an empty stomach, but it's really best
taken your meal right before and after workouts,in terms of it really supporting your metabolism, both weight loss as well as building muscle,retaining muscle. So it really keeps you from losing muscle.So, let's say for instance, you have an elderly person and they are starting to waste awayfrom kikexia, which is from cancer, and they're wasting away over time, Lglutemine is thenumber one supplement they should be taking that's keeps them from having muscle wasting.If you're an athlete and you're out there working really hard but you know, becauseyou did a lot of training, that you're, you're already burning up some muscle, Lgluteminekeeps that from happening.
Again, if you struggle with digestive issues,whether it's irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease like Crohn's disease, ulcerativecolitis, diverticulosis, diverticulitis, leaky gut or any of the issues associated with leakygut, like joint pain, rosacea, any type of autoimmune response, Lglutemine can supportyour body in healing.

How to Overcome Adrenal Fatigue
Hey guys, Axe here, of FunctionalMedicine and Nutritionist. Today I'm going to talk about how to overcome adrenal fatigue.And so many people today struggle with adrenal insufficiency, major fatigue issues, and it'sdue to problems with the adrenal glands. And the adrenal glands are two sort of thumbsizedorgans that sit here in the back of your flank area, and there are so many people, I wouldsay about 80% of the population that at some point will struggle with adrenal fatigue atsome point in their life. And in this tutorial I'm going to go throughthe three steps you must follow if you want to heal adrenal fatigue for good. And reallyit starts with diet. Actually, before I get
into that though, let me talk about warningsigns you have adrenal fatigue. Number one, if you struggle with fatigue,even if you get enough sleep at night and the next day you wake up and you're stilltired, that is a major warning sign you have adrenal fatigue. If you feel like you canjust never catch up or you're always tired, that's a warning sign you have adrenal fatigue. If you feel overwhelmed and stressed, youfeel anxiety, those are warning signs you have adrenal fatigue. If you have troublefocusing or concentrating or poor memory, those are warning signs you have adrenal fatigueor adrenal insufficiency.
Also, if you have a thyroid issue, prettymuch every person that has a thyroid condition, whether it's hypothyroidism, Hashimoto's orGraves' disease, any of those issues, that probably means you do have an adrenal issue. And some other warning signs could be thatyou are storing excess body fat. So if you have gone to the gym and you've worked outfor hours, and you're still not losing weight like you think you should. Or you can't seemto lose that last five pounds or break through that weight loss plateau, those are warningsigns that you have adrenal fatigue. And so step number one in healing adrenalfatigue is changing your diet. The top foods
you must get out of your diet to heal youradrenal glands is number one, caffeine. If you're consuming loads and loads of coffeeon a regular basis and large amounts of caffeine, that will definitely burn out your adrenalglands. The other thing is consuming too much sugar.Sugar will burn out your adrenal glands. Hydrogenated oils in foods that are just stimulants, likeI've already mentioned, foods that really imbalance blood sugar levels and will causespikes. But caffeine and sugar are the two biggies that you need to get out of your diet. Now, the next thing here are the foods thatreally support your adrenal glands. And foods
that are high in Vitamin B12 and magnesium,also foods that help stabilize blood sugar and energy levels. Coconut products, like coconut oil, coconutmilk, coconut meat, those are great for supporting your adrenal glands. Olives are great, olivesand olive oil. Raw dairy products and grassfed butter are fantastic, organic meats. Doingloads of vegetables, especially spinach, kale, and chard are great for the adrenal glands. Also, seaweed. Seaweed contains iodine alongwith other minerals that can support the adrenal glands as well. And so, again, adding someof those foods in your diet is a definite
must in changing your diet if you want toovercome adrenal fatigue. Now, the second thing you need to do to healadrenal fatigue is take supplements that support your adrenal glands, and there is a groupof herbs or roots called adaptogen or adaptogenic herbs which include a family of things, likeashwagandha, rhodiola, Holy Basil, licorice root and ginseng. But adaptogen herbs are titled adaptogensbecause they help your body adapt and deal with stress, and these have big benefits. The number one you want to take, the numberone adaptogen for specifically your adrenals
