Why

With glutamine comprising around 60% of the amino acid pool proving glutamine to the body can help offset losses due to training which could otherwise lead to muscle loss.

When

Glutamine Powder is best enjoyed between meals, during the 30 minutes just before or immediately after training and/or just before bed. Although it can be mixed with other drinks research shows other amino acids will fight with glutamine for absorption so it is best drunk with water or drinks with no protein.

Who

Anyone who wants to improve their recovery and muscle repair after training. Since glutamine is a muscle sparing amino acid, competitive bodybuilders tend to use this supplement whilst dieting to reduce the amount of muscle lost during their contest preparation.

Predator Nutrition Glutamine Powder Review

Glutamine has been used in bodybuilding circles for a long time now recommended for everything from improving immune system response, to preserving muscle mass when dieting. Regardless of what it is intended for the rationale for taking glutamine is simple; despite being the body's most abundant amino acid glutamine is depleted rapidly during periods of stress where stress is any physical or mental stressor.

Exercising alone will greatly deplete glutamine but when you throw in a typical cocktail of stress, and poor sleep hygiene then you can pretty quickly run into a state where you exhaust glutamine levels. Low glutamine is linked to illness and indeed is one reason why hospital patients will be provided intravenous glutamine to help restore them to health.

For someone who is training hard and putting themselves under stress the use of a glutamine powder supplement is a sensible precaution. For dieters whose bodies are under huge amounts of stress the leaner they get, we would argue that a glutamine supplement becomes essential.

Glutamine is the most abundant single amino acid in your body. It plays a key role in muscle growth, and I can't stress its importance enough. Research has shown that lifting weights increases your body's need for glutamine, and if you don't provide enough, it will steal it from skeletal muscle tissue. Supplementing glutamine has also been shown to increase growth hormone levels. Bottom line: This is a supplement that you should always be taking, and ON makes high-quality products. I've tried cheaper glutamine powders and while I can't with certainty say that ON's is 'better' (how do you quantify that, really?), I did notice that ON's mixes better with water and is less chunky. That may or may not have anything to do with quality, but I stick with ON because I know they make good stuff.
