    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?

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Hey Doc,

    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
