For the OP:
Glutamine is a true 'super nutrient' promoting muscle growth and overall health in many ways. For example, a clinical study reported an amazing 430% increase in growth hormone after taking glutamine. Growth hormone naturally promotes lean body mass.
Glutamine is popular with athletes is because it helps buffer lactic acid which fatigues muscles and undermines performance. Glutamine (also known as L-glutamine) is also an important nutrient for brain, immune and intestinal cells. Dieting can also impair the body’s synthesis of glutamine. Use glutamine supplements to make sure your body has enough of this important nutrient.
I also supplement with BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) to help with muscle gain, strength gains and recovery.
