Should I take Glutamine Supplements?

  1. Should I take Glutamine Supplements?


    Hello all,

    Is Glutamine supplements worth it?


  2. I use it. I think I recover better with it. I use about 10 grams in my post-workout shake.

  3. I use it also PWO with BCAA, but the new fangled scientific guys poo-poo it....

    I usually don't mind elaborating but the evidence against glutamine's [purported] effects on bodybuilding is so overwhelming that I encourage you to conduct your own quick research .

    I'll point you in the right direction though:

    -Effect of glutamine supplementation combined with resistance training in young adults.

    -Glutamine: the nonessential amino acid for performance enhancement.

    -Addition of glutamine to essential amino acids and carbohydrate does not enhance anabolism in young human males following exercise.

    -The effects of high-dose glutamine ingestion on weightlifting performance.

    -Facts and fallacies of purported ergogenic amino acid supplements

    -Exercise-induced immunodepression- plasma glutamine is not the link.

    -Glutamine supplementation did not benefit athletes during short-term weight reduction


    ^^All titles of peer-reviewed, methodologically sound/relevant studies for your viewing pleasure.

    BOOOOOOOO! HISSSSSS!.....elaborate!!!! lol

  8. Cliffs: glutamine wont help you with recovery unless you are a marathon runner or extreme endurance athlete or burn victim.


    Glutamine may help with immune system, GI benefits.

    No. Consuming any reasonable amount of protein via diet is enough for glutamine synthesis to occur.

    if you have enough protein around work out i dont think its necessary to use bcaa..... but if you have the money add them....

    just dont use glutammine....worthless like mr.cooper said above...


    edit: @mr.cooper.... you are faster...

  13. I haven't taken Glutamine sine the 90's. You think it could help with IBS symptoms?.
