A Champ For 4 Years Now: Inexpensive, Powerful Underdog,
This review is from: Body Fortress 100% Pure Glutamine Powder, 300 Grams (Health and Beauty)
I started taking this on the advice of a gym manager because I was acutely sore, meaning that you could take your finger and poke me - anywhere - and I would hurt, and you can't underestimate how much it hurt. I would lift myself out of a chair and hurt, try to get out of bed and be in pain. It wasn't that I wasn't get results in the gym. My bench press went from 185 to 230 during those days, but I would miss going to the gym because some days I simply hurt too much or I'd get to the gym and start lift and hurt so bad, I'd walk out and go home. Anyway, this was recommended. After three weeks my soreness was appreciably better, and after a month and a half, I simply didn't get sore. This was the brand I started with, and a giant retailer that we all know, probably, the one with walls in mart, if you know what I mean, stopped carrying it. I went through several websites trying to find it; what I found was much more expensive types of glutamine that had the exact same results. For the price you spend on this, this is an absolutely excellent product. Research and you'll find that glutamine helps recover from stress, injury, and, of course, weightlifters and exercise enthusiasts use it for muscle recovery. It also helps in digestion. The Body Fortress glutamine is inexpensive and 300X more bang for your buck than you'll get from more - and they're all much more - expensive brands. Some people use the amount of money they spend on supplements to strangely see themselves in a more elite, bodybuilding light. You know what? You don't need to. Glutamine is essential for anyone working out, however they're working out, and, for me - and as attested to by a lot of guys I talked to when the giant retailer stopped carrying this; they were all disappointed and upset because they wanted this brand - Body Fortress's glutamine is simply the best. REVIEW EDIT ABOUT PRICE: Unfortunately when sellers charge $4.99 for shipping, much of the leverage for this product is immediately lost. Sad.
