From what I have seen, there is no evidence that this actually does anything for you. Unlike a lot of suppliments though, this one does at least seem to be safe. If I remember right the problem with it is absorbtion. I don't remember much about it, but I know after reading up on it, I felt it wasn't even worth a try. I have talked to other people that think it's great though. It could all be in their heads though.

From what I have learned and experienced. The things that matter are time under tension, load, protein (in perticular whey, taken at the right time), energy/food, water, standard multivitimin, sleep, time for recovery.

exceptions
creatine, it gives some small temporary gains.
steroids and growth hormone, works great but very dangerous.

I haven't ever seen other suppliments work for people and some of them are dangerous too. Well that's my thoughts on the subject anyway.

L- Glutamine. Well, it's been over 7 years since I've done any serious research on it. It is a substance that is used by the body quite frequently on a daily basis, and being an amino acid, it is used for repair and maintenenace. I've read that the gut takes it in and almost constantly turns it over for intestinal lining. I've also read that can be used for gh level raising by taking it right before bed. I would suggest you do a google or other search, and factor the search down to health benifits, otherwise you will probably tie in to ads.

Exactly, there are no negatives, it is all natural. As you see though, the positive is not at all proven. No harm in trying, but it is probably just a waste of money.
