Glutamine

Just a quick one, GLUTAMINE: Does it need to be cycled or can it be taken continuosly. Also how many grams? I keep seeing 'take 2-10g', confusing.

Also does it really help GH release if taken at bedtime?

    It depends on the rest of your diet plan. 2g may be enough, sometimes 10g.  if you're having plenty of whey then it's doubtful you'd even benefit from it

    A fantastic product for releasing GH when sleeping is Pure Nitrix Oxide ie BSN Nitrix...

    NOT to be confused with No-Xplode, otherwise, you won't sleep, full stop!

    James, There was I thinking that Glutamine was one of the thoroughly tested products, now I'm being told this isn't really needed. When it comes to putting stuff in your body, i agree that 80-90% of it if you can should be wholesome quality food.
     
    And I also agree with iceman about getting sleep, but the problem is I'm a security officer and i work 3days, 3 nights, 3 off @ 12hrs a piece. (Although like most I do get 3 hours kip on nights, if i can I'm an Insomniac!)
    So you can understand my need for a little help from the supplement world.
     
    James, are there any supps out there other than Whey and Creatine, in your opinion that actually work, it seems whatever the product, some experienced guy will say "that's utter crap mate".
     
    I'm starting to lose ALL faith in ALL supplements now!

    Glutamine, has been trialled and the results are positive, but the trials are in people witha  lower protein intake.

    Yes there are a number of other useful supplements.  Have a read here: http://www.muscletalk.c...uilding-supplements.aspx - especially the beta-alanine

    I dont sleep well either funnily enough lol i see how you would have trouble sleeping with them shifts. But theres not much you can do about it, glutamine and bcaa are meant to speed up recovery you could give them a try and see if you benefit from there usage.

    I wish I could power nap, mate. I've been a bit of an Insomniac since I was a kid! I'm one of lifes natural born worryers, not warriers!! Probably why I hold a little too much tension within my body, worrying about **** all the time.
    There's another point, any relaxation methods you know would relieve pent up tension?

    Im actually the same mate, i tend to think about things when im in my bed i cant help it, i used to worry alot and still do a fair bit, but not as much. Its best to see a doc mate, when i was at college and had a routine i slept ok but now im off for the summer 9/10 times it takes an hour or so for me to get to sleep. I wish i could just take something that could knock me out so i could get to sleep its sooo frustrating.

    But i have a problem with my nose is mostly blocked so i have to take nasal spray to releive it as i cant really breath through my nose like the average person can so our circumstances prob differ abit.

    I was researching glutamine off the back of this thread and noticed how poor the wikipedia page on it is:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glutamine#cite_ref-4

    anyone got any studies on glutamine?

    Just personal experience TBH...   Taking Nitrix before bed helped me grow significantly, though in fairness, I know of no scientific proof...
