  • Bcaa v glutamine

    Hi folks just a simple Question which is better BCAA or GLUTAMINE I currently have both supplements and not sure which to use and best way of using them.

    Well you don't need any supplements unless you are deficient in something.
    Be careful not to neglect your diet, hoping to rectify it with supplements.

      Glutamine is good for long term use to help with keeping your joints going nice and strong. BCAAs are better for use in muscle protection and repair. If you have a hard endurance workout coming up take some BCAAs before you start and they will help your muscles go longer with less tearing, if you have a heavy lift day or hard HIIT take them after to help with repair.

      Like Noen said you don't have to take either with a good diet but early studies have shown some promise. Also on that note most of the results aren't backed up with a lot of research because there just hasn't been a lot of long term research yet but it is getting there.

      I take BCAAs off and on depending on the workout but not as an everyday thing, I also take creatine which you can look into if you want as it has a lot of research to back up its results. Creatine helps your muscles retain more water and can really help with muscle growth, protection, and repair.

        I have used both as well and can tell you that both are good for recovery but if I had to choose one over the other, I would choose BCAAs simply because it is more complete. I think more importantly though, L-Leucine or HMB is even better as they seem to have a lot of promise for muscle repair/growth and fighting muscle deterioration.

        I take HMB now with my protein and I have had pretty good result from it. I seem to be growing a bit faster and it feels like recovery is a smidge better than compared to other choices.

        I too also take creatine, some pre-workout stuff (magic powder in a can), a multi-V, a sleep supplement (Crash by Pro Supps), and some extra GABA. Tho I do cycle the GABA.
