    I took glutamine for a a few years, and I've noticed no difference without it. Search google or this site for Layne Norton + glutamine. As it turns out, it is kinda worthless to bodybuilders.

    I believe you take about 10 grams daily, its supposed to help with recovery, try it and see if it works for you, its pretty inexpensive.

    there's alot of mixed feedback for glutamine, it should be benchwarming to other supps (creatine, a protein powder if nsc.)

    Oral glutamine has been shown to not have any effect on athletic performance. Too lazy to link to the studies, but there is a good 4+ of them.

    Glutamine is a waste of money.

    Glutamine is a waste of money for bodybuilding purposes.
    fixed, but otherwise correct.

    See, Glutamine: the nonessential amino acid for performance enhancement Phillips GC. Curr Sports Med Rep. 2007 Jul;6(4):265-8.

    "Even using protein breakdown as a measure of recovery, the effects of glutamine are mixed at best. Though one investigation demonstrated an inhibition of total body proteolysis as measured by improved leucine flux after glutamine supplementation [21], a separate study showed glutamine supplementation did not affect urinary levels of 3-methylhistidine, another marker of protein degradation [14]. Therefore, whether considering buffering capacity, time to fatigue, or protein balance, glutamine supplementation fails to consistently demonstrate any positive ergogenic benefit on measures of recovery from exercise.

    Unfortunately, this appears to be another example of commercial marketing trumping scientific evidence that in this case demonstrates how nonessential glutamine supplementation is to athletic performance."


    See also, Addition of glutamine to essential amino acids and carbohydrate does not enhance anabolism in young human males following exercise. Wilkinson SB, Kim PL, Armstrong D, Phillips SM. Appl Physiol Nutr Metab. 2006 Oct;31(5):518-29. Abstract available at: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1...ubmed_RVDocSum

    (The addition of glutamine to a carb + EAA beverage had no effect on post-exercise muscle glycogen resynthesis or muscle protein synthesis)


    See also, Effect of glutamine supplementation combined with resistance training in young adults. Candow DG, Chilibeck PD, Burke DG, Davison KS, Smith-Palmer T. Eur J Appl Physiol. 2001 Dec;86(2):142-9. Abstract available at: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/en...ubmed_RVDocSum

    "We conclude that glutamine supplementation during resistance training has no significant effect on muscle performance, body composition or muscle protein degradation in young healthy adults."

    Glutamine is a vital amino acid that is required by every muscle in the body, and is one of the most important building blocks in forming the proteins that maintain cellular health and tissue repair. L-Glutamine is found in varying amounts in most meat and fish as well as, to a small extent, in vegetables and pulses. Anyone involved in high intensity training programmes designed for muscle growth or increasing strength, are advised to use L-Glutamine as a dietary supplement to boost their intake.

    Glutamine is not a waste of money and does not do very little but very much and people shouldnt post things unless they know what they are talking about
