I have read through your question and understand your concern. It is correct that L glutamine has been seen to help in the healthy functioning of the intestine but this is still under trial and there isn't enough data to prove it conclusively. The side effects you have mentioned may occur on a very long term use of glutamine and that too on very high doses.
