You need a powerful ally in the fight against cravings, belly fat, and blood sugar spikes. Learn how L-glutamine can support your body’s natural ability to protect and heal! See if any of this sounds familiar...
The first few days of your diet are going great. And then come the cravings. Maybe a well-meaning coworker offers you a homemade brownie. Or the grocery store stocks the sparkling water right next to your old bestie, Diet Coke. Suddenly, you’re considering going to the movies just so you can eat popcorn and candy in the dark!
Nothing can derail a new diet faster than intense cravings. Believe it or not, those cravings are actually a good sign: they mean your body is saying goodbye to the last of the harmful antibodies it produced in response to your old way of eating. While that knowledge might bring you a little comfort, what you really need is reinforcements…
Count on L-glutamine to help! (In fact your body already does…) L-glutamine is an amino acid, one of the building blocks of protein. Your body already produces it in large quantities so you can digest food, fight disease, and regulate your blood sugar properly. However, it’s still known in the science world as “conditionally essential.” That means you might still need to supplement whenever your body is facing a challenge.
Supplementing with L-glutamine is especially helpful for people living with chronic stress, illness, or inflammation.* That’s because your body’s response to emotional or physical stress of any kind is to release the hormone cortisol. Cortisol depletes your body’s natural supply of L-glutamine, making it harder to lose weight and stay healthy. (It’s no coincidence that you find yourself getting sick or adding extra pounds during the most stressful times in your life!)
Without L-glutamine, your body loses one of its strongest natural defenses against infection, as well as the ability to burn fat and build muscle. Making positive diet choices and working out doesn’t guarantee that your body can use the healthy fuel you’re providing. The last thing you want to do is spend your resources on exercise or nutritious meals that your body can’t use effectively!
Just stir L-Glutamine Powder into the drink of your choice for quick help with cravings, gut health, immune support, blood sugar, and more!* It’s important to take L-glutamine in powder form instead of capsules because the amount required just isn’t practical otherwise. (Think 10-20 capsules a day...) And of course, as with all supplements, quality counts! JJ Virgin’s L-Glutamine Powder is the highest quality and always gluten- and dairy-free.
No single supplement can do it all. But if you’re looking for a strong multitasker, you can’t beat L-Glutamine Powder! Looking for an easy, diet-friendly recipe that uses L-Glutamine Powder?

Why Buy From Us...
Simple Science-Based Solutions to Better Your Life!
With all the options you can choose from, you deserve to know the differences between what we’ve created for you and what’s out there on the market, as well as why we go to such great lengths to ensure the quality of your supplements.
Effectiveness and Bioavailability
First and foremost, the products you find here are crafted from the highest quality ingredients available. Rather than selecting ingredients for shelf life, we formulate supplements to enhance YOUR LIFE! That is why we opt for top-notch ingredients and focus on bioavailability and benefits. It might not matter to you that we use certain forms of nutrients instead of cheaper versions, but your body knows the difference.
Produced in a Family-Owned Facility that Does Third-Party Testing
A high percentage of supplements don’t even test positive for the ingredients they claim to contain! To avoid any risk of a big manufacturer cutting corners on the products we create for you, JJ made arrangements with a family-owned facility she knows well. (She was a sales representative for them long before she wrote four NY Times bestselling books to help people avoid unnecessary weight gain and painful exposure to food intolerances!) She went to the people she trusted, the people she’s seen ship back countless ingredients after their independent third-party tests did not confirm quality and efficacy. Any idea what happens to those returned ingredients? Yep – you guessed it. They go on to another manufacturer who does not invest in outside testing.
The best part of JJ’s arrangement is that this is a family operation being passed down from generation to generation. That means no risk of a big buyout that would do away with the quality control measures JJ demands from the facility that creates your specialty supplement formulas.
Taste & Consistency
You won’t find a creamier shake that provides as much protein, with as little sugar, and ZERO exposure to the 7 high food intolerance foods. You won’t find bars that avoid the harmful proteins in gluten, soy, dairy, egg, peanuts, and corn that taste anywhere near as delicious as what JJ has created for you. Your satisfaction is guaranteed, and you can rest assured the shakes and bars you fall in love with now will remain consistent in their tasty flavor and creamy texture.

About JJ Virgin
JJ Virgin owned a beautiful high-end gym in Palm Springs and catered to the Hollywood elite who needed to prepare for starring roles and world tours. She was the nutrition and fitness expert on Dr. Phil and other major TV shows (ranging from Freaky Eaters to The Doctors), and print media authorities relied on her expertise. She had all the success a certified nutritionist and trainer could want. But when she made an important discovery – almost by accident – she left all that behind to stop the needless suffering and weight gain caused by undiagnosed food intolerances.
Nutrition and fitness theory has always relied on the calories-in-calories-out model that declares your weight is simply a function of how much you eat and exercise. However, JJ saw firsthand that this was definitely not the case. Even when she sequestered challenging weight loss cases at a retreat where she controlled what they ate and how much they worked out, there were people who still GAINED weight. So she got curious – very curious.
Since JJ supported the foremost doctors and NDs with their most challenging patients, she had access to the best nutraceuticals and tests. Combining data from the doctors she worked with and clients who trusted her to find a solution to their non-stop weight struggles, JJ found that there were 7 foods that cause the body to react by protecting itself with extra fat, inflammation, skin issues, and more. She narrowed the offending foods down to the 7 most common and used that as the starting point for what evolved into her NY Times bestselling books The Virgin Diet and The Virgin Diet Cookbook.
The 7 High Food Intolerance Foods (she dubbed them the 7 HiFI foods) were removed from the diets of hundreds of willing clients for 21 days, long enough for antibody production to slow or stop. Then, one at a time for one week each, the 7 foods were reintroduced. The results were astonishing! The simple removal of these foods reduced weight significantly, plus eliminated joint pain, headaches, and skin issues, leaving both JJ and her test subjects happily shocked. The reintroduction process caused the symptoms to return, widely more apparent since antibodies were no longer present. This inspired a full-scale test of the Virgin Diet protocol and, later, the launch of the books.
You might be wondering what all this has to do with the products you’re looking at here on the JJ Virgin Store? To answer that question, you need to know that the 7 HiFI foods JJ discovered were corn, gluten, eggs, dairy, soy, peanuts, and sugar or artificial sweeteners.
(You can learn more about the 7 HiFI foods in the free PDF download HERE.)
As it turns out, most shakes, bars, and supplements include one or more of these foods under sneaky names that you’d have to be a food detective to recognize. JJ had a rapidly growing family of people relying on her to guide them away from these 7 Hi FI foods, and that meant they needed safe protein shakes at the very least. One majorly successful part of the Virgin Diet is starting your day with a power-packed protein shake, but… JJ could not find ONE brand on the market that met her stringent requirements and tasted anywhere near delicious.
She went back to her roots, to the same community of high-end nutraceutical creators, doctors, and NDs that she had first shared her discoveries with. She banded together a network of caring professionals to source the best ingredients and formulate a tasty line of nutritious shakes and bars, as well as exceptionally high-quality supplements that are free from the 7 foods. She also built and educated the team that supports you when you shop here on this store.
It has been a long and amazing journey in order for JJ Virgin and this entire team to touch so many lives. So what’s your health goal? How can we help you? Check out some of the stories of people just like you on the reviews tab, and then reach out to let us know how we can best support you.
