    Weightlifting: What supplements would you use if you grew up in todays world?
    People often mention how they didn’t have the supplements available today when growing up for weightlifting. What are some of these a serious 17 year old should use for competitive weightlifting? (Besides protein obviously)

    • rr says:

      Protein uptake is critical within 30 minutes post workout (sooner is better). Powder must include all essential amino acids (some have creatine, but creatine is just a mix of amino acids) But please do research on heavy metals in pre-made shakes. Muscle Milk has one of the highest ratios .
      What are the benefits of protein shakes?

      Safe for people who are healthy and fit, protein shakes are used mainly by athletes who need nourishment right after their workouts, says Jose Antonio, chief executive officer and co-founder of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN). ‘Most people can’t make a meal immediately post-workout’, he says. ‘So these ready-to-drink shakes are really your best alternative’.

      Creatine…a must. Please see the truth and myth here:

      Glutamine…another amino acid…abundance is great
      * Glutamine has been linked to protein synthesis. It prevents your muscle from being catabolized (eaten up) in order to provide Glutamine for other cells in the body.

      * Glutamine helps maintain cell volume and hydration, speeding up wound and burn healing and recovery.

      * Glutamine benefits you by replenishing declining Glutamine levels during intense workouts.

      * Research has shown Glutamine can help you produce growth hormone levels. A study has shown 2 grams of L-Glutamine increased growth hormones by over 400%.

      * Glutamine may serve to boost your immune system. For bodybuilders, this is important since heavy workouts tend to greatly deplete Glutamine levels. (Glutamine is a primary energy source for your immune system.)

      * Glutamine is one of the most important nutrients for your intestines. It has the ability to ‘repair a leaky gut’ by maintaining the structural integrity of the bowels.

      * Bet you didn’t know this: It can even cure ulcers! Studies have found that 1.6 grams of Glutamine a day had a 92% cure rate in 4 weeks.

      Researchers are suggesting that Glutamine is the most important amino acid to the bodybuilder. It provides a component in muscle metabolism and cellular support not shared by any other single amino acid, making the benefits of L-Glutamine supplementation a realistic venture.

      Good Luck

    why it worked for my rhuematoid arthritus?
    when I was diagnosed with ra I had on and off severe unexplained abdominal pain for two years prior I had alot of testing and they even looked in my stomach and said in looked red and irratated but gave me no reason why, in fact the nurse p. treating me acted like I was faking it. I suffered through this pain but later deloped joint inflamation and other commom complaints of ra i.e. rashes, fatigue I went to a good doctor and he tested my factor and then sent me to a specailist who diagnose me. I decided there must be a link between these problems and began my quest to reseach any and everything about abdominal pain and RA and read that some people believe that ra starts out in the gut something call “leaky gut syndrome”-google this) through process of elimination I found a remedy that work for me I know western med. may not except that ra is allergy related but I don’t care, I do however care that they had me on meditrexate(not sure of spelling) hydrochoriquine and steroids and it wasn’t working near as well. I am currently taking nothing but L-glutamine and super garlic and restricting what I eat . L-glutamine repairs the lining of intestines and garlic is a natural anti-infalmatory and has antifungal properties. I also take enzymes when I eat large or hard on the stomach foods. YOU DO NOT have to have servere abdominal pain to have this work there are many other ways it shows up please don’t take my word as a doctor I ‘m not one. I am a sufferer or previous sufferer!

      Thank you for sharing your knowledge!

      …….L-glutamine and garlic sounds a much less aggressive treatment and I’m so glad it worked for you….

      Plus enzymes with meals is good advice for many of us…..

    How to heal a leaky/ damaged gut?
    What are somethings that would help? I have started eating lots of veggies and cut out things that are hard to digest. And it’s helped, but are there other types of things I can use?

    I bought some aloe vera juice. Have you used anything that you would recomend? I would just see a doctor who specializes in this.. but I really can’t afford it right now. So does anyone have any tips or things I can buy that aren’t too much?

    thank you so much !

      Hi, I’m Lola Scarborough, a certified yoga teacher and healer at Yoga Lola Studios, http://www.yogalola.com. I work with people with all kinds of physical, mental, and emotional conditions.

      I recommend using a multi-layered approach, using not only food inclusion/restriction proper to the problem, but also seeing a nutritionist and an acupuncturist and practicing yoga to improve your digestive system. I particularly recommend Kundalini Yoga as a therapy for the digestive system. I also recommend doing a breath called Sitali breath, which will help cool your digestive system. (see citations 1 and 3 below). Please make sure you study yoga at a yoga studio with a certified teacher before setting off and doing itself. It can really help you heal the digestive problems you are having, along with the other modalities.

      Leaky gut and aloe vera don’t always go together. Some say yes, some say no. If I were you, I’d go for things that everybody agrees on and skip the aloe vera. See the quote below from acupuncturist Roisin Golding:

      “Once you’ve removed possible causes, you can then start to heal the intestines and provide health giving bacteria. This is done in several steps. Firstly, one should follow a diet that cuts out all sugar, including, for the first three weeks, fresh fruit. At the same time take one garlic tablet in the morning (to act as an inhibitor of the bad bacteria) and one acidophilus tablet at night, to re-establish the normal bacteria. After three weeks one should then take FructoOligoSaccharide (FOS), found in fruit and vegetables, particularly Jerusalem artichokes, and also available from health food stores. FOS feeds the healthy bacteria in the gut (the bad bacteria hates it) and actively heals the intestinal lining.

      Generally, eating a healthy diet rich in fibre and low in refined sugar, and making sure, as far as possible that it is from organic sources, will help maintain intestinal integrity.

      Supplementation with the essential fatty acids, Omega 3, from oily fish such as mackerel (cod liver oil is rich in Vitamins A and D but has less omega 3) and with Omega 6, from evening primrose oil, will help to heal the inflammation, within the intestines as well as around the joints and muscles. The amino acid, L-Glutamine (available in tablet form), is directly involved with healing the intestinal membrane. However, do not exceed the recommended dose, as serious mood disorders have been reported in those taking high doses.

      Aloe Vera, which some recommend for gut problems, is not suitable in this case, as it is too bitter and harsh and can worsen inflammation.” (see citation below)

    Glutamine for leaky gut. To be taken with or without food?
    I have 750mg capsules of l-glutamine to try and heal my leaky gut. They have no guidance on the package of how to take them. I understand for athletes you are supposed to take before/after a workout but what would be the reccommended way to take them for intestinal permeability. Thanks

      These products do wonders for leaky gut. The first one has L-Glutamine in it. If you buy it, get the powder (more for your money). Not sure which one of the products would be the best for you (maybe both). You’ll have to experiment with it. There are some awesome healing testimonials!

      I would suggest you also add in a probiotic (good bacteria) to reestablish your gut flora. Renew Life Flora More (probably the Ultimate Flora 50 Billion). All three of these are made by the same company, and are excellent products. I highly recommend them.

      Read the Maker’s Diet by Jordan Rubin. It changed my life!

    Fecal body odor due to leaky gut?
    I have fecal body odor and I think leaky gut causes it so I did some research and i purchased Vitamin B-12 and L-glutamine.
    Some sites say a diet could help so can a Master cleanse/lemonade diet help me clean and repair my gut or do i need to do the orange juice diet.If you have any more info about my problems please tell me.
