Glutamine Facts for Rookies

by Zach Bashore

Glutamine is a word that flows around gyms and message boards throughout the world but the average person does not even know what Glutamine is. This article is going to explain what Glutamine is, how much should be taken, the best ways to consume it, and top sellers. After reading, you should then be able to make an educated decision on whether or not you should supplement with Glutamine.

According to dictionary.com, the word Glutamine is defined as a nonessential amino acid occurring widely in plant and animal tissue and proteins produced commercially for use in medicine and biochemical research. Glutamine is also an amino acid used in nutrition therapy. The most noticable effect of Glutamine is that it is a brain fuel. It has also been used to treat depression and alcoholism.

One of the main reasons anyone who is trying to lose weight should use Glutamine is because that it reduces cravings for sweet tasting foods. Glutamine plays an important role in the functioning of the metabolism and also helps with muscle maintanance. Bodybuilders should take anywhere from eight to seventeen grams daily, divided between two or three servings. There are no severe side effects associated with the use of Glutamine but there have been reports of people getting upset stomachs because they took to much of it.

Many of the supplements and protein shakes you use already have some sort of Glutamine in it so look at the ingredients of your current supplements and if you`re not getting enough, then you should invest in some sort of Glutamine supplement. Nutricraze.com`s top 3 sellers are:

* Jarrow L-Glutamine 1000mg
* Beverly Glutamine Select Plus BCAA`s
* Now L-Glutamine 1000mg

No matter what type of Glutamine supplement you get, it all equals out to the same, a higher intake of Glutamine. I`ve cycled Glutamine for a week and the results were fantastic. I held on to most of my muscle mass while fat just kept melting off. Glutamine would have to rank in my top five favorite supplements. Where does it rank for you? Until next time, later.
