    I feel glutamine is a great supplement. I take the glutamine peptides, it is a pain if you have to take them on an empty stomach, especially when you eat every 2 hours. It helps recover faster from a tough workout. It is the most abundant amino in muscle tissue also. It is one of the few supplements I recommend.

    Glutamine is an amino acid and is required by the body to build and maintain muscle.If you are breaking down the muscle the more you feed it the quicker it recovers and the better it grows.
    I would take it no matter what and it has been proved to help muscle breakdown from ocurring

    yup - ALWAYS take glutamine - as for supps, the only things I really recommend are glutamine and a multi vitamin - and then depending on the person, potassium, vit. C, zinc and vit E.

    I use 10-15g/day, and its totally worth the money. Glutamine and protein supplements are the only supplements I've used on a consistant basis, because the results are obvious.

    If you had to choose between protein shakes and glutamine go with protein shakes. But if you are on a tight budget, why not take 2 shakes a day and have a meal to substitute for the third? Then you could afford the glutamine.

    Does it matter what else you take the Glutamine? I mean I'll be starting Clenbuterol soon, is it okay to take the Glut with that? And other stuff, ex: creatine, ECA, protein, etc...

    ???

    Thnx

    I don't see why it would interfere with any of the other things your taking terinox, but thats just my opinion, if you don't have enought money for the glut, just try to make sure your protein has enough of it in it.

    What is the best brand of glutamine for effectiveness? best brand for low cost? is there a best of both worlds?

    and which is better> caps or powder?

    I use the cheapest powder I can find. It's all basically the same, and there is no need to go with an expensive brand on this one. I take 15-20g a day. I use it reguardless of whatever else I'm on.

    L-Glutamine and a multi-vitamin is what I am on right now. I have 5 mg in the morning when I wake up with my breakfast, 5 more when I have my post workout smoothie, and 5 more before retiring at night.

    Q: What is the difference between Glutamine Peptides and straight L-Glutamine?

    A: The major difference between the two is that glutamine peptides are more stable in liquids, and in the gut. Free form L-Glutamine can begin to quickly break down if itís mixed with a liquid and not consumed immediately, and itís also easily recognized by the gut. As such, much of the L-Glutamine you take in may be absorbed and utilized by the gut before it ever reaches the muscle cells. This is by no means a bad thing, but when you are engaging in resistance exercise, you want to get as much glutamine to the muscle cells as possible, and the best ways to do that are by using glutamine peptides or glutamine precursors. Glutamine peptides are more stable when mixed in liquid, and due to the form they are in, they are not so easily recognized by the gut. This means that more of the actual glutamine will make itís way into the bloodstream, and thus into the muscle cell, which as a bodybuilder is where you really want it.
