    What's the best? L- glutamine, glutamine peptide? powders or pills? brands? amount to take per day? I've been losing weight and just want to keep as much muscle as possible.

    L-gulatamine, because in a lot of those cheap sup you get both D and L form, you want to make sure that you are getting the proper form of the amino acid in your body! The D form of the amino acid our body can not use, and thats the same case with every other amino acid that we can use the d form. BUT a proper diet is the best source. For example, GRASS feed beef is the best source for a whole host of amino acids. GRASS is important, american beef is poor because the cows are corn feed and injected with antibiotics every other day!

    I've just started taking L-Glutamine myself and from all that I have read taking 1-2 teaspoons a day should be more than adequate. All L-Glutamine will do for you is deliver plenty of nitrogen to your muscles so that you will be in constant surplus.

    That is what I have read, I don't recall who wrote the article but I can tell you that it was written by scholars and not any of the companies that sell supplements, and I say this because I have access to several scientific data bases where I do all my research. Also it makes sense since L-Glutamine has a nitrogen containing side chain.
