Hi Wendy

Honestly, I'm not sure where you can get this, or even if it exists. In general, it's my opinion that any supplement to aid weight loss is not a good idea, whether or not it contains a potentially harmful substance. There's very little evidence regarding any of these supplements, and so is there one on the market that is safe - it's all guesswork, and no guarantees, because the products are never tested. In the case of glutamine, there's little to suggest that it could be harmful in moderation, but in really large doses, it may have some negative effects. The same goes for any other substance. The body requires a certain amount, anything in excess is just excreted, and so, to be blunt, people who load up on supplements are just wasting their money. I honestly believe that the keys to weight loss are diet and exercise, and lifestyle, and not supplementation.
