Had a facebook question and answer segment the other day.
I was asked if glutamine was needed.
Well the sports supplements will tell us that they are good but is glutamine really needed?
First off, there’s not one study done that shows that glutamine helps with protein synthesis so that’s a big X.
Second, almost all of the glutamine studies done are on people with HIV or severe burn victims who get IV glutamine. IV glutamine is absorbed a whole lot better in the body and passes the small intestine. Glutamine Powder doesn’t.
Save your money.
