Glutamine, Worth the hype?

Is Glutamine worth the hype?

There are studies on every type of product, food and service. We have heard for decades the fights between whether or not coffee is good or bad, chocolate is it good or bad; but no study is completely conclusive. Glutamine, is no different. In this article we will analyze both sides fairly.

The Facts : Glutamine is the most used Amino Acid in your body. 60 percent of your skeletal muscle is comprised of glutamine. It is a primary transport to your muscles and throughout your body. As you work out you deplete your glutamine levels. The loss of Glutamine decreases your strength, stamina, and recovery. Some claims by studies have claimed the following about Glutamine.


_____The Debate______
