Glutamine and Protein


I wasn't sure whether to post this in the newbie section or this one. It may be a rather silly question to ask, but I couldnt find a good answer to suit my needs.

I have a two fold question actually.
1. Is glutamine worth anything? I know its a Non Essential Ammino Acid, so I wondered if it was a scam like NO2. I did read that article about uncovering supplements but I dont recall it stating whether or not this stuff was bunk. And I'm guessing it must be in protein supplements like Grow! Correct? I took some L-Glutamine that I had bought a long time ago for a sickness this week and it seemed to help a lot. Placebo affect?

  1. Are all proteins created equally? Meaning, would 20g of a casein protein be better than let's say 40 g of whey protein? Or do they all pan out to be about the same in the end? Or is protein...protein?



get the 20g from casein and the 40g from whey and mix them up...

Hey...where'd you find those? I dont know why but I can never get anything to come out of that search tool. Thanks


Just started back on Glutamine and I started Arginine as well. When I took it the first time I seen/felt pretty good results. Has anyone tried Carnitine with positive results? I'm back on the supplement train and I'm experimenting.
