i received 3 free bottles of this from BodyBuilding.com
with purchases of ON Hydro Builder. i finished 1 bottle already, and about a week or two ago i started on the second bottle; this review should be rather short and simple.
Ingredients: Serving size 1 capsule, 1g L-Glutamine
. nothing fancy here, as many of you know working out/lifting weight puts stress on the body, which glutamine
levels deplete from the body. The body can lose up to 50% of its glutamine
levels during training, so you want to replenish the what's lost. this will help with recovery
, prevent muscle break down, reduce muscle soreness and improve the immune system
Taste/Dosage: for taste N/A, can't taste anything. dosage i took anywhere from 2-4 caps daily, splitting the capsules between post workout/pre bed on lifting days; and morning/pre bed on rest days. i usually stuck around 2g daily, every once in a while i would take a few extra if i feel like i needed a little more help in recovery
Effectiveness: during my first bottle and now part of my second bottle i would like to note this was stacked with ON Hydro Builder. what i noticed from this was enhanced recovery
after my workouts, reduced muscle soreness and it seemed to make my muscles feel more "full" upon waking in the morning. one thing i did notice about this, was every once in a while if i dosed a little higher than an extra 2g daily it upset my stomach a little, but nothing major. i'm sure part of what i noticed in recovery
was from the Hydro Builder, but knowing glutamine
s benefits i know this helped too.
Value: they come in 120 capsule bottles and 240. i received 3 free bottles of the 120 count, which is awesome. now you can't beat free, but even at regular pricing this 120 count is $9.99 and 240 count is $17.99; which to me seems like a really good price, plus they last a while.
Overall: good basic product that can be incorporated in to any supplement stack or desired fitness goals. it's effective as recovery
aid and the value is good as well. results weren't mind blowing, but i give this a good rating because the results were solid.
