idk but there are some people on youtube claiming it is toxic. like this [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExyNf3u7iQg"]YouTube - Why " MUSCLE MILK " Is A Neuro-Toxic Soup Of Processed Crap! ufc wec mma[/ame]
i think this guy doesn't what he is talking about. i hope someone has more to add on this topic since we consume mass amounts of glatamic acid via protein shakes.

Like I mentioned in another post: I don't 'feel' any difference on it or off it. I still take it since its been a staple of mine for years. I ingest 10g/day.
I dont buy the neuro-toxicity complaint, in fact, that guy needs to drink some muscle milk and put some mass on those bones.
It can't be more toxic than people who ingest pills everyday, or drink high levels of alchohol; I'd be more concerned about the latter than L-Glutamine.

50G day is overkill if your natural. I would think bodyweight or more specifically muscleweight would also be a factor.
This is just a hunch, I have no proof or backup.

Glutamine is only going to produce a noticeable nootropic if your are deficient in glutamate. Since Glutamate is the most abundant excitatory neurotransmitter in humans, it is doubtful that you are going to be deficient. If your looking for a nootropic boost from the glutamine family, check out pyroglutamic acid. It helps increase oxygen in the brain and preserves the brains stores of ACh.

Im sure there may be opposing articles out there yet the Colgan Institute has been testing athletes for many years along with all forms of nutrition and supplements.

The combination of ketoisocaproate form of leucine with the ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate forms or ornithine and glutamine should provide the most anabolicand anti catabolic mix of these amino acids known to science (the book is a few years old but solid--keep that in mind).
If I can find a scanner in the next few days or week..Ill scan the few pages and upload them. It does go into great detail, Ill see what I can do to get this info up here. Im not a great typer....lol.
Maybe try googling or searching some stores for those forms and see what you can come up with.

Some people are more sensitive to MSG or processed gluten than others. I myself am very sensitive and will have panic attacks if I have processed gluten. Ibuprofen I read blocks gluten toxicity, so that's what I use when I have an attack. I really works for the headaches. There is a ton of info on this topic at thetruthinlabeling.org. They even had a 60 minutes segment on msg (same thing as processed unbound gluten) in 1994 or 92 cant remember the year. it's on youtube and i posted it in another topic awhile ago.

"The chemical compound acetylcholine (often abbreviated ACh) is a neurotransmitter in both the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and central nervous system (CNS) in many organisms including humans. Acetylcholine is one of many neurotransmitters in the autonomic nervous system (ANS) and the only neurotransmitter used in the somatic nervous system. It is also the neurotransmitter in all autonomic ganglia."
i, however, made no sense of it

Alright,simply Acetylcholine is released by your nerves to tell your muscles to contract. In the brain it is believed to be important for learning and memory among other things.

can it be supplemented?
if it can be, it sounds risky at best
