I doubt it. Look at it this way:
say you use 20g Glutamine orally to get an effect(questionable)
90% is destroyed in the gut, leaving 2g in the blood.
The max conc. you could get for a dermal would be ~50mg/ml
So you would need 40ml a day for an effect.

Glutamine supplementation is of marginal benefit since it's only a "conditionally essential" amino acid. The "condition" only happens when overtraining or during very long, high intensity cardio sessions - both of which lifters should avoid doing if they want to continue to put on mass. If you feel a need for it and are concerned about getting more in your system, then use the peptide forms. They become free-form l-glutamine through the digestive process and get more glutamine into the blood - at least that's what is claimed.

That´s true but the intestine is the spine of the immune system,the chineswe are telling,and if the gut needs it for its energy so be it.
It´s anyway only the 5g-on-empty-stomach dose,that will give your hgh-pulse a decent spike-boost,so after your train a good thing to do.
If you´d like to supplement your muscle-glutamine-pool,then supplement BCAAS cause they´re absorbed best and utilised for the body´s own glutamine synthesis.
