I noticed on the myopure site it says:
MAY help preserve muscle
MAY boost growth hormone
APPEARS to speed up recovery
MAY enhance immunity
Seems rather unconvincing.
Does anyone use this supplement regularly?November 10, 2008 at 10:26 pm #7240
That’s why they call me ‘Mr Softsell’.
You really need to make up your own mind on this one.
The argument ‘for’ is usually based on a whole bunch of intravenous studies with burns patients.
The argument ‘against’ is that the l-glutamine doesn’t get past the gut were it’s used to maintain gut health.
However a lot of very big guys swear by the stuff. It will help maintain a healthy gut.
Finally, it may be that when supplemental l-glutamine is used by the gut it spares endogenous glutamine stores.
Oh, and it’s an expensive source of glycogen if you’re low carbing it.November 11, 2008 at 1:32 am #7241
I have been taking l-glutamine for the past week.
3x5g a day – one upon waking, one pre training, one post training.
all with juice/high gi carb drink.
i have noticed that i’m not as sore. usually 24hrs after training legs DOMS cripples me and i can barely walk. this week there’s still some pain but not nearly as much as usual.
Other than that, no other noticeable effects.November 12, 2008 at 4:06 am #7242
Glutamine, like most singular amino acids should be taken on an EMPTY STOMACH.
I wont train without it – i notice my muscles much fuller as it is a great glucose disposal agent (helps transport glucose into the muscles making them bigger and fuller)
Besides its cosmetic benefits, its great for preserving muscle. Use it!November 17, 2008 at 3:58 am #7243
Bodytek, when do you take it then and how much?November 17, 2008 at 5:44 am #7244
I take 2 measured teaspoons 3 x per day.
Upon rising, wait 30 mins then eat
30 mins before training
Before bed after last meal has settled
