        Anti-Catabolic & Recovery Agent

        L-Glutamine is the single most abundant amino acid in the human body. It is involved in regulating protein synthesis and has been shown to possess Anti-Catabolic properties to help preserve muscle. Intense exercise can deplete glutamine stores, however, supplemental glutamine is thought to replenish these stores allowing for enhanced recovery.

      Directions
      As a dietary supplement, mix one (1) heaping teaspoonful with 6-8 oz. of water or your favorite beverage and consume daily.

      Warning
      Consult your healthcare provider prior to use if you are pregnant, nursing, taking any medication or have any medical conditions.

      This is a great product. It is a GREAT anti-catabolic. I am in recovery from figromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. A friend recommended this product. From the first dose, I experienced a difference. The more I took it, the better I felt. I take it in the morning before breakfast. I also found that I have more energy. I am now able to work out without feeling achy in my calves.

      I wanted to get bigger sooner, so I tried Glutamine to train more frequently and have a quicker recovery time. I take it immediately after my workout and before I go to bed. After 2 months, my results have been poor. I still get sore after I work out. I read that it suppresses your appetite, I'm eating more! My workout results have been the same. Does not mix, so it's hard to drink. I'm thinking about trying BCAA's instead.

      >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2010-08-06
      i have never heard of glutamine being an appetite suppresser you are probably hungry from burning your energy stores from working out.worki9ng out more does not get you bigger faster either !!!

        I take a teaspoon of this stuff directly without mixing it, usually about 30 - 45 minutes prior to my workout. This stuff has worked great. I notice minimal soreness and fast recovery the next day. I can get up and go hard again when using. Great product.

            Just like any glutamine, it helps recovery and prevent alot of soreness if taken correct.
            I don't diet and only work out 3 times a week due to work but after taking it, you really notice a change.
            1 scoop before a workout, 2 scoop after workout & 2 scoops before bed.
            Only take 2 scoops in the morning & before bed on OFF days

                I have been using this perticular product for some time now and I am very pleased with the results. I workout about three times or so a week and this product is very effective for muscle recovery. As a matter of fact, when I ran out of it, I noticed how much more sore I was after a couple of days after my workout; which was not the case when I was using the powder.

I use it when I know I worked out VERY hard or when ever I play football and I know I'm running hard or using my muscles alot. I don't feel as sore as I would in the morning and its great with some fruit juice.

                                    I have been purchasing and using Bodytech's Glutamine Powder for quite some time now. My recovery time after workouts has been greatly reduced. The next workout I am fired up to get pumping. Glutamine is a necessary supplement if you are into building solid lean mass. I highly recommend this product.

                                        I have been taking the glutamine powder for at least 6 mos. It has helped my recovery and have been less sore. I can work out back to back if i have to without being in pain. My muscle mass has been great since i've been on it. The new consistency of the powder dissolves much better in any juice or Propel, no after taste or grittiness. I definitely would recommend this product.

                                            Bodytech glutamine is a great value for a great product! I have noticed that I am less sore the day after an extreme workout and it mixes best with a thick shake. I would definitely recommend this product to any serious body builder or even any person that lifts weights in general

                                                I really like almost all of V-shop's products, so I was really surprised at this one. The powder is very coarse and doesn't mix well with other drinks. In plain water, it doesn't mix at all, unlike other brands. The price and quantity are good, and if you mix it with a thick protein drink you're probably OK.

                                                    I wanted to get bigger sooner, so I tried Glutamine to train more frequently and have a quicker recovery time. I take it immediately after my workout and before I go to bed. After 2 months, my results have been poor. I still get sore after I work out. I read that it suppresses your appetite, I'm eating more! My workout results have been the same. Does not mix, so it's hard to drink. I'm thinking about trying BCAA's instead.

                                                    i have never heard of glutamine being an appetite suppresser you are probably hungry from burning your energy stores from working out.worki9ng out more does not get you bigger faster either !!!

                                                        this stuff works but it will NOT blend with any drink it tastes grainy and sinks to the bottom and to the sides of the cup. I will be finding another brand next time

                                                            its good if u need something for recovery but cant afford those crazy recovery blends for 35 bucks and up. this is a small tub for 18 bucks and u take 1 heaping teaspoon. it says once a day but i take it twice - once with my protein shake after workout and once before bed. it definitely works. i remember the second day i had it i did a hardcore shoulder workout then took it after and felt like i did a light workout.

                                                                Best Answer: L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in one's body. which is the building blocks to muscle generation. The harder and longer you work out the more glutamine you burn . For extended workouts and heavy lifting and intense cardio, supplementation of l-glutamine is a must for recovery of muscle tissue. Purchase a product that has certification on the label to ensure quality. Vitamin Shoppe products for the most part are solid products.

                                                                The labels says "suitable for most vegetarians" so is it suitable for vegans or who is it NOT suitable for?

                                                                What is the source from which BodyTech Glutamine is derived?

                                                                Is this micronized, pharmaceutical grade glutamine? I used to use the AllMax brand, however I am very please with the Vitamin Shoppe brand products I have tried, especially the Whey Protein Blend.

                                                                Again, is this body Tech l Glutamine vegan/vegetarian and free of heavy metals, and done with fermentation, hopefully not heat treated and no chemicals used?
