Does Glutamine Make You Gain Weight
I read that antidepressants cause weight gain due to insulin resistance. If I take zoloft, (sertraline) I can counter weight gain taking L-glutamine and L-leucine?
See a dietician: Beans, milk, yogurt, ricotta cheese and cottage cheese raw spinach, cabbage and parsley provide glutamine. If there is a specific reason to gain muscle mass then it would be wise to see a registered dietician to make sure you have a balanced diet. You may want to discuss with your physician also.See 1 more doctor answer
Should I take creatine, whey and glutamine supplements as I just began weight training last month?
No: Such supplements are not studied enough by researchers because these supplements are not FDA-approved drugs for treating particular disorders. Nobody knows for sure what happens if a person takes performance-enhancing supplements. So, it is best for all athletes to train and build their bodies the natural way, with healthy nutritious foods, avoiding sports supplements or body-building supplements.
I am gyming and want to gain mass but without fat. So what should I eat that helps me more having eggs, rice, protien, aminoacids, glutamine. Wht more?
Protein: A good book to get is the primal blueprint. It will teach you what you need to know.
Hello. I want to know when is best to take L-Glutamine to gain muscle mass and burn fat. I perform exercises of high intensity intervals.
Forget it: Glutamine has no benefit in improving muscle mass so you are wasting money.
I have fibromyalgia and IBS and have been taking l-glutamine powder for 5 days. I've gained 1, 5kgs and my stomach hurts, should I stop? I'm 22, female
Glutamine powder: Is supposed to help improve your immune system health but there is no scientific studies proving that it works and at what dosage. So people tend to think if 1 gram helps, 1 kg of it must help 1000 times. Of course it doesn't work like that, but there is no actual guide in how much is enough. So people get fooled into buying large amounts of this supplement without having a clue how to take it.See 1 more doctor answer
Glutamine benefits: Glutamine is an Amino Acid available as a dietary supplement. When taken at high doses (10 grams 3-4 times a day before start, throughout and after chemotherapy), some small non-randomized studies show that it may help prevent or reduce severity of chemotherapy side-effects like mouth sores (swish & swallow), neuropathy, muscle & joint aches & diarrhea. Caution in those with kidney/liver failure.
Plavix (clopidogrel): Possible but Glutamine has not been listed under the medication which could interact with Plavix, see the list of medication which can interact with Plavix below: http://www. Drugs. Com/drug-interactions/clopidogrel, plavix-index. Html
Fermented glutamine: L-glutamine can be commercially derived from fermentation of beets with probiotic cultures. Glutamine is an Amino Acid found in many protein rich foods (milk, cheese, meat, eggs). The internet claims it helps with recovery, alleviates physical/mental stress, joint pain, mental fitness, ; body's rate of tissue repair. Take these claims with a grain of salt, as with all non-fda regulated products.
Maybe: Glutamine is a conditional essential Amino Acid with good benefits. Nevertheless, you need to find out the cause of the gastritis (h. Pilori or not) and reat it adequately.
I found no: Interactions using a drug interaction checker. But there is never a 100% guarantee.
You flunked the quiz: If you're a healthy young person you get all the BCAAs you need from diet. Glutamine isn't an essential AA. You make all the glutamine you need from glutamate which is made from alanine or aspartic acid. If you consume glutamine you just synthesize less. Excess AAs are burned as fuel & excreted as waste. So there you'll stand with your fly open literally watching your money go down the toilet.
Controversial: Glutamine is important in muscle metabolism and can get depleted during intense exercise or athletic activity. Supplementation with glutamine was shown in small physiologic studies to enhance exercise tolerance/stamina. Whether this translates to enhanced athletic ability could be a different story. One factor that plays into the athlete's performance is ability to withstand rigors of training.
Glutamine in HIV: Some studies support the use of glutamine to prevent loss of or maintain body mass in patients with hiv/aids, as well as promote healing and recovery following surgery or critical illness. Other studies have not shown any benefit. It should not be taken in patients with mental disorders, epilepsy, liver or kidney failure or an allergy to monosodium glutamate (msg). Always verify with your dr.
Yes: And get with your physician and find out whether this GFR is even reliable. Today's fad for estimating GFR based on a spot creatinine without regard to whether the individual may simply be well-muscled (and healthy) causes a great deal of unnecessary concern. "focus on the person, not the lab value.".See 1 more doctor answer
