Does glutamine break fast?
I'm eating on 18/6 window and cutting. I'd like to start taking 5g of glutamine before bed to help me maintain muscle mass. Does taking 5g of glutamine break the fast and whatever benefits it brings?
I don't believe it does. I used to take it myself and I think it absorbs rather quickly into system when taken with water. With an 18/6 window, are you following more of a warrior style diet? If so, it does allow for light snacking throughout the day (raw veggies, fruits, protein shake etc..)
Thanks. I'll be taking it 4-6 hrs into the fast (before bed) so I guess it's of even less problem than after 12-14 hours when one wakes up.
