Glutamine for building muscle: You will still find this amino acid in almost every recovery supplement because of its proven anti-catabolic effects which are important in conjunction with high intensity exercise. Even though it is not an anabolic amino acid, it will still provide support in building muscle and increasing strength. This is a result of glutamine's ability to support progress by preventing muscle breakdown and promoting recovery from your workouts. Glutamine and Muscle Glycogen: For any athlete looking to optimize his/her training, supplementing with glutamine will ensure you get the most out of your glycogen stores while optimizing performance and recovery. It works especially well for athletes who are dieting for a competition (and anyone who needs to meet a weight class in individual sports) and are limited in caloric intake. If you take a look even further into glutamines benefits to dieters, its ability to form glucose as shown in studies proves it can actually curb dieters' cravings for carbohydrates.
Glutamine is flavorless powder that is consumed in 5 grams servings. As needed, mix 5 grams of Glutamine with water, milk, or juice. You can supplement with Glutamine on non-training days as well to take advantage of its insulin regulating and muscle preserving effects.
