  • Anyone find anything wrong w/ this study on glutamine?

    I'll readily admit, I'm not someone who can easily dissect a mediocre study, it would have to be really shitty. Glutamine is a hot topic in weight lifting circles,and I'm recently convinced it doesn't have these muscle buildilng properties as once thought through enhanced recovery.

    But, what about this study that showed increases in HGH?

    Someone would have to have access to the study in the "American Journal of Clinical Nutrition" (homonuncleus)....

    I assume they would have to actually read more about it other than the abstract to get a good idea of how useful the study is.

    Based off the abstract - I believe this at least proves that glutamine does not get completely wasted by your stomach and can actually improve plasma glutamine through oral administration.


    Edit:
    Found it.

    Well here's the whole study from the AJCN website...

      My question (as far as it's implications for us,) would be- Would the effects be similar or less substantial if the meal that was eaten actually had a substantial amount of protein in it? I understand why they made the meal small, but nonetheless, for our purposes, wouldn't it have to at least include SOME protein for the results to be significant?

          Good find! It would still be cool to see what Homon or someone who knows how to decipher a good study or not weigh in since I probably still won't be able to haha. Have your thoughts changed fade?

          @ the above poster -- What exactly would you notice? Most users who use exogenous HGH report that they don't really notice any body comp changes until a couple months into it. Chances are if you even do get a HGH increase with oral glutamine it would probably be the same deal as creatine. Something that helps you "a little bit" short term over time adds to increased gains over the long term. GUt health isn't something you would notice either, but the healthier the gut, the less chance you get sick with doesn't help gains, and glutamine plays a role in detoxification too--which is important...but again, you wouldnt feel it
