Funny, I just got done taking some.

Glutamine is great because it preserves muscle and helps create muscle. It is anti-catabolic (prevents muscle wasting aka preserves muscle) and it promotes protein synthesis (builds muscle) and growth hormone production. Glutamine aides in recovery as well.

It is also a great way to almost instantly curb sugar cravings - take 5g when you get a craving for sugar. It will greatly diminish the craving or eliminate it completely.
