I have been reading the posts about L-glutamine and n-acetyl d-glucosamine, intestinew etc. I have horrible Body Odor , feet breath anything that can smell will.
I decided to get tested to find out if I had leaky gut a while back and it seemed I did have it but it wasn't too bad. At the same time I got phase I and II liver detoxification pathways tested. I felt they were important tests in order to find out what was wrong. I had been on the an anti-candida diet and taken three lac and pro-biotics and it hadn't helped with Body Odor but I am sure it is very good for you. Not to mention intestinal cleansing with colonics, chlorophyl, gse, pysllium, vegetarian/ low choline diet, you name it.
So leaky gut showed up as not too bad (my therapist said she had seen much much worse and probably in a person without Body Odor !) However my liver was in a mess. I had a very very fast phase 1 which changes chemicals into a more toxic substance ready to be broken down by phase II which was very slow. Strange how one would be working very well and the other so slow, I thought all of the livers detoxification pathways would be either slow or fast. She said this was a big problem for cancer and pointed out my father had cancer very young, and it can be hereditary.
So I tried to find something that would only boost phase II and found SAMe or S-adenosyl-methionine
Strangely enough it talks a lot about glutathione which is coming up a lot in this forum. Maybe other people here have impaired liver detoxification pathways. I have not any Kidney tests.
Here is an extract from the website
Protecting the liver
The liver is the primary organ involved in removing toxic substances from the human body.19 One way the liver achieves this is to produce glutathione, a powerful antioxidant composed of three amino acids, cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine. When glutathione encounters a toxin, such as a pesticide or drug, it immediately attaches to it, making the substance become more water-soluble. Once it is in this water-soluble state, the toxin can then be excreted safely via the urine without causing any damage.20
Because of the liver's continuous battle against toxins, adequate concentrations of glutathione are crucial to survival. Damage occurs when the liver is so overwhelmed by toxins that it cannot produce enough glutathione. Part of that concentration burden falls to SAMe, which is a necessary component of glutathione's creation. Not coincidentally, the concentration of SAMe in the liver is one of the highest in the body.
The interrelationship between SAMe and glutathione production is of such critical importance to the removal of toxins and general liver health that it is considered by many researchers to be a liver super-nutrient. Nothing comes close to providing the spectrum of health benefits that SAMe provides for the liver.
I think you have to take it for a least a month or two before it starts to help. I am not sure if it will help with body odor or not but I think it is worth a try if helps leaky gut and liver detoxification it can't be bad.
I am going to try Intestinew, Milk Thistle, maybe nullo or odex with a non dairy diet at the same time. I will also TRY to give up smoking again. Any encouragement very welcome.
