Glutamine – The Smart Choice For Skinny Guys Who Want to Gain Muscle Mass?

If you are one of those guys who religiously read the muscle magazines for the latest “edge” for bodybuilding… then I have some sad, sad news for you concerning Glutamine…

But before I rock your boat… you are definitely gonna see “Glutamine” on the top 5 list of supplements that are must haves for bodybuilders — in every issue of the bodybuilding and muscle magazines.

And why not? Glutamine is a money maker for them.

But does Glutamine actually deliver? I don’t think so…

And I think you are better served if you stick with the basic supplements of creatine, protein powder, multi-vitamins and fish oil capsules. And speaking as a skinny guy with a budget… I truly believe you are just wasting money on glutamine.

I don’t think Glutamine has any effect at all on your muscle building efforts. But that is just me…

Here is the down and dirty story of Glutamine…

You see, glutamine makes up about 66% of the amino acids in our bodies… and guess what? Your body makes it so it doesn’t need any external input… and yes… when you are working out… the amino acid reserve in our muscles get depleted…

And I guess this is where the theory that you must replenish your glutamine levels comes in…

But… there is NO research that can show evidence of the benefits of taking glutamines. Especially for skinny guys like you and me.

And users of Glutamine are probably spend over $1000 a year in the misguided belief that it is helping their muscle building workouts.

If taking Glutamine does have any positive effects… it would only be for certain conditions and situations… but otherwise a huge waste of money that you can redirect into buying better quality foods to help you gain weight.
