I agree on the leucine. I used to use glutamine way back in the day cause it was the thing to do. Never noticed anything from it. Bcaas I could feel better recovery and I also liked purple wrath wich if I remember right was eaas plus a few other things. After reading a a few years back that leucine was responsible for most of the benefits from bcaas I gave it a try. Works great amd stuck with it since.

Everyone will pick different amino acids and say one is better than the other. I stand by L-Glutamine as well as the BCAA mix. I even got a bottle of L-Glutamine and BCAA mixed together. I feel I got my monies worth on the amino mix. It definitely helps with recovery. Don't know what I'd do without it. It stays on my shelf.

Reading conversations about glutamine is about as fun as reading conversations about creatine. Like school in the summer time...

I always wondered if it would help my irritable bowel syndrome. I may have tried it once in 1990. Also would be interested in how it helps with the immune system, or does it. Would it actually help me prevent me from getting sick as often as I do?. It may not help with building muscle, but it is the other benefits that it supposedly has that would be of interest to me.

Since eating low carbs though most, if not all of my symptoms have disappeared. It's only during carb ups that I have problems, but I just deal with it.

I'm an idiot just read BOTH of your posts. Have you looked into peptides at all for your bowel issues? I take glutamine specifically for the benefits it can have on gut health.

I've been looking into the use of glutamine for irritable bowel symptoms and immune health. Couldn't glutamine be beneficial for certain populations?. I mean I'm older now and have had IBS for over 20 years. I'm still wondering if it will have potential recovery benefits also, especially for someone like me. Just been googling and apparently IBS patients are deficient in glutamine. Here is one the articles I read about it,
I think it could explain why I get sick a lot easier and more often than others.

Yes I was diagnosed after a colonoscopy back in my early 20's. I had been on dicyclomine for it until I had to keep upping the dosage so much that it would have become toxic. Years ago, since I went on low carb the symptoms have significantly improved. What also works for me is Psyllium husk. I've tried probiotics which don't really make any noticeable difference at all. The only time I really have trouble is when I "carb up". Thanks for the help cooper. It's more of a condition I've just learned to live with and not as bad is it once was when I was first diagnosed.
