    Lightbulb L-Glutamine vs. Casein Protein

    Hi guys...
    I've just started taking L-Glutamine post-workout and I've read that it is anti-catabolic. Would this mean that taking L-Glutamine before bed would help or stop your body from eating its own muscles? Or is Casein Protein more effective? Which is better before bed? Thanks guys...

    Casein. Glutamine is pretty much worthless IMHO, unless you are a very advanced trainee who mega doses it.

    Casein, no contest.

    L-Glutamine's oral bioavailabilty sucks and can only promote anabolism through PRAL scores IMO.

    As above mate ^^^^ It's like day and night with the two. Glutamine is a controversial supplement and whilst it is the most abundant free amino acid in human muscle the studies that have investigated it's effects have not proven it to be useful in sports.

    Casein is the protein part of milk, it forms micelles in the gut and therefore takes longer to digest hence it's 'anticatabolic' nature.

    Some carbohydrates with your nighttime meal would also boost its anticatabolic nature, i used to drink ON 100% Casein (chocolate) with half a cup of oats, just factor it into your calories for the day.

    Casein is better. glutamine is not worthless, as far as I'm concerned. it keeps me from getting sore. It helps the immune system. However, get some micellar casein because it has about a 7 hour digestion time. Add some fats, and your on your way.

    The glutamine would be beneficial with some bcaas during workout if you can swing it.
