Recent study shows glutamine can prevent the herpes simplex virus from reactivating in the body.
A recent experiment concluded Glutamine supplements were able to suppress the herpes simplex virus in guinea pigs and mice. This research was published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation and conducted by scientist from the National Institute of Health. The experiment lead to a conclusion that glutamine helped increase the T cells which fought off the virus and stopped the herpes reactivation.
In further detail, scientist infected mice with HSV-1 (Herpes Simplex Virus 1) and they infected guinea pigs with HSV-2 (Herpes Simplex Virus 2). Two weeks later, the animals were divided in to two groups. In one group, the animals were given a glutamine supplement, in the other group the animals were given nothing. The group of animals given the glutamine supplement had an increase of T-cells in their nerve tissues. T-cells fight off sickness in the body. It was reported that the mice given the glutamine supplement were less likely to have a herpes reactivated outbreak in their body after they were infected.
Please note that this has not been tested on humans yet. There is no proof that if humans eat glutamine supplements or foods high in glutamine their herpes will disappear forever. I am not a doctor and I am not a medical professional. However, if I had herpes and I came across the research described in this post, I personally would look in to taking a glutamine supplement or I would eat foods high in glutamine.
So what is glutamine? Glutamine is an amino acid that occurs naturally in your body. It occurs in the blood and the muscles. When the body goes through illness or injury the body fails to naturally make glutamine.
Glutamine has been used to counter the side effects of medical treatments. It has also been used for treatment in certain surgeries and other illnesses. Foods high in Glutamine are: beef, chicken, fish, dairy products, eggs, beans, beets, cabbage, spinach, carrots, parsley, vegetable juices, wheat, papaya, brussel sprouts, celery, kale and fermented foods like miso For Glutamine supplements, the recommended dosage is 2-15 grams a day.
