Glutamine and Glutamate seems to increase butyrate production in the large intestinal tract

Glutamine and its counterpart glutamate seems to increase the butyrate production in the intestinal tract.

Butyrates show a biting or pungeant, light sweat like smell.

This strengthens the view that the tight junction sealing is dominated by metabolite pathways that present in one or the other way highly smelling chemical compounds the body is forced to absorb to counter regulate its deregulated energy metabolism in the intestinal tract.


  1. Increase in butyrates with defect in butyrate degrading enzymes(as in earlier posts from April 12th), wouldn't this be counter productive measure to manage sweaty stench ...

  2. Yes exactly, it actually contributes to the odor production.

    But as always it gets more complicated: this effect seems to be based on bacterial scavenging processes, so glutamine might be fine in combination with antibiotics or equivalent supplements...but that is still under investigation and in large theoretical discussions...

    1. Would taking probiotics with lglutamine work?

The fecal body odor smell type

As stated in an earlier post, the most prominent reported smell type for TMAU2 patients was the fecal smell type. But not only TMAU positive patients reported such a type of smell, another body odor sufferer type do show the same fecal body odor pattern. Interestingly nearly all of those non TMAU patients report having Irritable Bowel Syndrom (IBS) as well. We took a closer look into the combined bacterial and human metabolism. The central chemical compound involved in the fecal smell seems to be indole. Indole is produced within the bacterial metabolism as a precursor of tryptophan. As major source the bacteria use glycolysis based on sugar, carbohydrates, ... To let the bacteria produce too much indole we found certain criteria: - Tryptophan absorption of the intestinal cells is lower than the serine and glycine absorption - Histidine malabsorption is present - Tyrosine malabsorption is present Why do TMAU2 patients now show a fecal smell, don't they have a choline and

Bromhidrosis TSH+: Diet protocol + nystatin, nigella sativa + h1 receptor antagonists + medicinal clay improves body odor condition

In our explorative case we were further able to improve the diet protocol as well as finding a new drug/supplement  composition. We are taking advantage of following over the counter drugs/supplements: - Nystatin - Nigella sativa (black cumin) capsules - H1 receptor antagonists (loratadin) - medicinal clay The diet protocol was taken from: Dosages (daily) applied were like the following: nystatin: 6x pills (3x at morning, 3x at evening) nigella sativa: >10000mg (5x 400mg capsules before every meal, 5 meals per day) loratadin: 50mg - 100mg daily medicinal clay: 6x 6g (luvos healing earth)
