Why Glutamed ND?

Glutamed ND contains a blend of Butyrates, Calcium Propionate, Ursodoxicoltaurine(TUDCA), Trehalose, L-Glutamine, Seaweed and essential Minerals and Trace elements.

As many of these ingredients are already used by ALS/MND patients separately, we have combined them into a more convenient, single-serving sachet.

Ingredients have been selected based on those showing the most promise, in terms of current scientific research, in the area of neurogenerative diseases.

are also known as SCFA's which are derived from the fermentation of dietary fibre by gut bacteria.

Calcium & Magnesium Buytrate, Calcium Propionate, Calcium beta-Hydroxymethylbutyrate (HMB).

  • Butyrate, propionate and acetate are the primary energy source for cells lining in the colon and small intestine, and are thus key in maintaining gut barrier function
  • are needed for a balanced/ healthy microbiome
  • facilitate immune modulation (T-cell activity) and overall anti-inflammatory response
  • are mediators of the gut-brain axis, potentially affecting mental health and mood
  • reduce muscle wasting and preserve muscle strength
  • anti-inflammatory properties

a bile acid conjugated with taurine.

  • inhibits apoptosis (cell-death)
  • reduces oxidative stress
  • plays a role in maintaining the intestinal microbiome
  • helps enhance bile flow, which promotes healthy digestion and absorption of dietary fats

a disaccharide found in plants.

  • enhances autophagy (a natural process to clean out damaged cells). It thereby regulates the breakdown and recycling of cellular components, to prevent toxic build up
  • anti-inflammatory properties
  • reduces oxidative stress

is the most abundant amino acid in the body. Deficiency is common in catabolic/critically ill patients.

  • Plays an important role in muscle protein synthesis, thereby reducing muscle wasting
  • key energy source needed for maintaining gut-mucosal integrity
  • reducing inflammation by promoting production of anti-inflammatory cytokines such as IL10, thus Tregs
  • wound healing
  • reduces oxidative stress

a marine algae prebiotic (MAP).

  • contains dietary fibre with surplus-value (meaning a good balance of both insoluble and soluble fibres), together with digestible proteins and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids
  • low in Iodide

  • promotes brain health and provides energy

  • anti-inflammatory effect 
  • may improve brain function

  • blood levels of zinc, copper and selenium are commonly low in patients with neurodegenerative diseases.
