Hey JL,

Just came across your old post where you mentioned your suicide feeling reactions to glutamine.

~~AMINO ACIDS
1. Glutamine
a.) Helps in treatment of phobias, anxiety, and panic by producing energy without causing nervousness.
b.) Makes the mind more alert, partially though its ability to detoxify the ammonia buildup in cells, and also because as it passes through the kidneys, it helps the body retain potassium and sodium.
c.) Promotes the regeneration of the linings of the digestive tract (i.e. useful in treating ulcers)
d.) Greatly stimulates clearer thinking; has been useful in improving brain functions of patients with mental retardation and epilepsy; also improves memory and enhances physical dexterity.
e.) Reduces lactic acid buildup--great to take before and after working out to prevent muscle soreness.
f.) Aids in gastrointestinal healing.
g.) Helps reduce cravings for sugar and alcohol, probably by providing energy for brain function.
h.) Practitioners prescribe it for neurological and mental disorders.

DOSAGE: 500mg two to three times daily

which fits

as does mmb's 1g in morning and evening (depending on weight, build, amount of muscle..like a well built active guy could take more, as muscle uses it up..err I think)
