I've seen L-Glutamine mentioned a few times now in reference to strength training, but am generally weary of supplementation.

What do you knowledgeable, experienced people have to say about it?

I use it everyday. Boosting the immune system when putting it under regular stress will help recovery but also bugs & colds.

I actually rarely ache for very long after workout using this with creatine

I guess I take it now too, as it's added into my Soy Protein Isolate. I have noticed faster recovery, since switching to this protein powder.

It seems to really improve my recovery time when I take it with creatine and brown rice protein.

I used to take it as well but I just can;t afford so many supplements so had to cut this one out. Most protein powders also have some Glutamine or some precursors. I mostly now just do a protein powder and creatine.
