Glutamine helps with muscle recovery, allowing you to get back to work faster as you increase weights. If you’re at the gym every day, glutamine may be an easy choice for your routine. The National Institute of Health notes that several studies have shown it “may help with recovery of muscle strength and reduce muscle soreness after exercise.”
