Hi there,
I'm currently taking 8g L-Glutamine Powder everyday. Will this have any effect on hair loss. Is l-glutamine good or bad for hair loss. please advise.

I don't really see how it would be possible. I can't find any studies claiming anything one way or the other.

Glutamine is just a proteinogenic amino acid which is produced naturally in the body. It's also quite well studied. I wouldn't hesitate about taking it.

The only supplement that I personally avoid is Creatine as it has been shown to raise DHT levels a substantial amount. I wish there were more studies looking at the effect it has on DHT, but sadly the only one I found came from a South African uni.

You told me, "close thus, and so you get the car." **** you! You owe me the car!
