  • My boyfriend has been taking supplements for bodybuilding.

    Unknown, From: New Jersey :

    My boyfriend has been taking supplements for bodybuilding and I'm afraid that they are harmful. He has been taking cyodine and glutamine. What do these products do and are they safe?

    Glutamine is an amino acid, a constituent of protein, that is made by the body. The theory is that with strenuous exercise the body's supply is not sufficient to prevent muscle damage, so some bodybuilders take glutamine suppplements. It appears to be safe. I can't find any references to cyodine. Could it be creatine? Creatine is the most popular supplement among bodybuilders, and it is safe and usually effective. Refer to our article archives: Is Creatine Safe? and scroll through our forums for more information. If your boyfriend is indeed taking something else, you might suggest he try creatine instead. There are over 800 supplements marketed to bodybuilders; most of them are useless and some can be harmful, so caution is justified.


    That's it for this time,
