    Glutamine

    Discussion started by Weapon X - Feb 3, 2004

    What is it and what does it do? I've read up a bit on the internet, but can't find quality information. Well, rather, I don't have the effort to. I'm so lazy, I'm not even asking my brother, even though he uses the stuff. If it's good stuff, I'm just gonna snake from my bro everyday.

    i had creatine that had 'glutamine peptide' in it. i was told the glutamine is sort of a sugar for energy.

    while glutamine can be beneficial for some, taking it alone will not really do anything. the main thing glutamine helps with is digestion and overall stomach help, repairing the lining, etc. Best bet would be to buy some whey protein since most of them already have L_glutamine and glutamine peptides already added

    bottom line is that like most supplements if you take it alone it will not be effective

    Yo, fuck that whey protein shit. I eat a bar once in a while, but I prefer straight eating. Lots of eating. So what you’re saying is that the glutamine helps digest the protein better?

    it's an amino acid
    important for protein metabolism.(digestion)

    it's not the type of shit you need to supplement your diet with, especially if you eat meat.

    too many supplements could fuck up your liver.

    Merci beaucoup, !@#$.

    Some dude was telling me, however, that meat doesn’t digest so well (something to do with bonding/bonded something or other), as opposed to beans. It may have been vegan propaganda, though.

    i've been vegetarian for nearly a decade, with zero adverse health effects..and many good effects.

    however, i am of the mind that everyone's bodies are different..
    i mean, we all have different faces, right?

    so what i mean is that: in a general sense, our bodies are the same, glutamine does the same thing in the majority of bodies..however, some bodies may have a preference for one form of glutamine over another (like glutamic acid)..some people may have bodies that are better with meat digestion, some people aren't tolerant of soy, etc..

    if you are veggie, or going veggie, and worried about essential aminos not found in abumndance in fruits and veggies..
    try Liquid Aminos (mainly good for vegans but also for use by regular humans)

    it's a spice typw of condiment/seasoner, kind of like soy sauce

    But it won’t mess with your liver? If so, sounds good.

    i don't think anything will mess with your liver, unless you take too much...

    there is a fine line between healthy and overdoing it..

    in other words, 3 supplements per day seems like a lot, the kidney and liver basically filter all the fluid in your body, so more solutes equals more hard work for them..

    moderation is the key here.

    plus again, bodies are different, some may respond better to supplements than others.

    i also like the idea of mixing it in with cooking/food (at home)

    it's not processed to shit, plus a lot of supplements need to be taken with food or milk because you need certain additional compounds to aid in absorption (for example, calcium won't really enter your bloodstream without Vitamin D)

    almost all supplements need to be taken with food or within 30 minutes of eating, some though need to be taken on an empty stomach. 3 supplements a day is nothing to be concerned about whatsoever. and little to none of them have an effect on the kidneys or liver, unless you are getting into testosterone (steroids) or something.
