Perfecting/adjusting My Supplementation: Please Weigh In On L-Glutamine And Bcaas.
I am currently Bulletproof in terms of diet and lifestyle. I do BPIF every day. My supplementation is as follows, in semi-chronological order:
Primal defense probiotic. (Was Natren Healthy Trinity.)
Krill oil and/or cod liver oil
Some herbal supplements at my discretion, like Gaia herbs adrenal support and such.
Magnesium glycinate, (kind of a lot, at night -- like 800-1000 mg.)
Potassium (maybe not enough, 300mg or so)
The Paleologix system with food -- the ingredients are here: http://paleologix.com/paleo-supplements/ but basically they include L-Glutamine and some other amino acids, but in fairly small amounts compared to Dave's recommendations.
Charcoal and himalayan salt go without saying.
Now, I am thinking of adding to this.
I have come across NAC in the BP 'hangover' protocol, and I have heard that it is good for us in many ways. Do you think that is a good and safe supplement to add? Any particular brand?
L-Glutamine: I have come across it in many threads and I see it in the RFLP. Would it be beneficial to take? Any particular brand? (As per Jason Miller, it needs to be Japanese Micronized, but it doesn't seem to say so on any of the brands I have looked at -- NOW, Jarrow, Pure Encapsulations.)
And finally, Branched Chain Amino Acids. I came across them in the RFLP too, and I am wondering if I may benefit from them doing forward. Any recommendations, thoughts, ideas?
I should mention that my objectives in all this are: Fat loss, energy, hormone balance, gut health, and overall -- best performance.
I would really appreciate some of your perspectives, experiences, and advice.
