What should I stack with glutamine?
A classic stack is glutamine and BCAAs, taken around the time of a workout. This stack can enhance recovery and protect the muscles from the effects of catabolism. These aminos are common ingredients in pre-, intra-, and post-workout formulations.
When is the best time to take Glutamine?
Before or after a workout, first thing in the morning, or before bed are popular times to take glutamine. Large amounts of glutamine can irritate the gut, so larger doses should be split up. Glutamine is best absorbed on an empty stomach.
What are the benefits of taking extra L-Glutamine?
L-Glutamine is known as a conditionally essential amino acid. Our bodies can produce limited amounts of glutamine, but exercise depletes glutamine stores. People who train regularly turn over a lot of glutamine and their bodies may not be able to keep up with demand - replacing this glutamine prevents the body from breaking down muscle tissue to fulfil the demand for this amino acid. There are many reasons the body needs glutamine. Glutamine moves nitrogen around the body and has a role in detoxifying metabolic waste products. It maintains the health of the gut, and boosts mood, memory and mental performance. It regulates protein synthesis, can stimulate the body's production of hGH, and it supports the immune system.
Does L-Glutamine have any side effects?
We eat glutamine in our food and our bodies can produce glutamine, so it is something that we encounter naturally, and like many natural supplements, it is very safe. Glutamine is more likely to cause side effects at higher doses. These can include digestive issues, like constipation, nausea or diarrhoea, and some people have reported headaches. Lowering the dose may alleviate these side effects. People with serious conditions, particularly bowel disease, liver, kidney or cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or a seizure disorder are advised to consult their doctor before commencing glutamine supplementation because it may interfere with their condition or the medication used in its treatment.
