Try it guys its the main thin in alot of these "new formulas" it seem like the new stuff is just going back to better basics. Expect about 10% greater gains of lean mass more meaning if you gain10 lbs it could be about 11. Thats what the big thing was with the old ANATOR formula like 5yrs ago.
a lot of studies are out now that show that leucine doesn't produce that great of results...just thought I would let you know. Do you make your own weight gainers or do you buy them?

I buy my weight gainers 99% of th time its Anabolic Muscle by Healthy 'N Fit. Its old school and it works.

L Leucine has been provine to provide great results when used in addition to normal protein. I believe the biggest studies were done at University of nottingham. Do a few more searches with non bias studies of course. this is also why hmb works so well. its not something that alone will make a difference but with others can increase their effects.

If I could only have one supplement I would use fermented cod liver oil, so many benefits related to vitamins K, E and CoQ enzymes available in fermented cod liver oil everyone should use it

I was talking about bodybuilding supps really...not just general health supps.

I like the Xtend. I guess there are probably glutamine products on the market that are cheaper but if you are buying the 1000g size there are not many. As for results, I never look for drastic results when using a product like this and although there are benefits I believe they are subtle. I am always leery of someone making claims about a product doing magical things for them and this has been one in which I have seen people make some pretty absurd claims. So it's hard to answer your question when it comes to this. We all know that glutamine aids in protein synthesis, anti-catabolism and cell volumizing but again I think the effects are going to be very subtle. Glutamine can also help you produce higher growth hormone levels but I think anyone using glutamine and claiming they have really noticed a huge difference in either their workouts or appearance are kidding themselves. One thing I do like about Xtend is there is zero carbs and zero sugar.

I would caution you though. I have tried the other flavors and found them to be pretty nasty. That's why I stick with the watermelon.

Yeah a lot of people doubt Glutamine products and I am one of those so I figured I would ask. My protein has plenty glutamine in it so I've never actually tried any other supps. I'm more of a food guy lol
