How much Glutamine?

  1. How much Glutamine?


    How much is enough and how much should/can I take? I train 2 times a day and take 5gr with my shakes 3times a day, should I take more? I also got sick now, sucks big time, read something about it can help with the immune system, should I overdose now?

    Thanks for your help!

    are you supplementing with just glutamine or BCAAS as well?

    Both, I have pure Glutamine powder from Nutra and I have BCAAs from LG. I add Glutamine to the BCAA powder sometimes, is that good or too much?

  4. depends how many servings of the bcaas u are taking because doesnt it have 2g glutamine already? if your taking like 3 scoops at a time then you dont need to add extra, i dont see adding more hurting anything though. If you just take a dose prewo and postwo youll be good, you could take 5-10g before you sleep if you want some people do that , cant say it will do anything extraordinary

  5. I take roughly 10 grams per day. I think 5 grams is usually sufficient after your workout and I like to have 5 grams with my shake in the morning. I really don't think much more is necessary.

  6. I take 5grams before bed and upon waking up. That's sufficient enough. just make sure u take ur bcaas as well. protein shakes usually have glutamine and bcaa's so u should be fine.

  7. I thought that it would be good too "over dose" Glutamine..? Like to boost recovery and immune system take 5gr a couple of times a day. Anyone know?

  8. 5-30g or you could just skip to GABA.. and take 5g
