Since OP is only 18, he should pay more attention to healthy diet habits instead of using supplements (not that supplements are bad) which he can then carry throw his life and grow as a healthy person, all around.

Re: BCAA and Glutamine

I completely understand the necessity of a healthy diet. I'm well aware of what should be consumed on a daily basis in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle, I just feel that beginning to incorporate these supplements be helpful.v

And Im saying, theyre probably not helpful vs the cost if you are already eatng correctly. There comes a point where the cost to refine something into its constituant parts and concentrate those parts isnt worth the relativrly tiny benefit derived. I guess its up to you to draw that line.
