Re: Weight Gain Supplement Advice Appreciated...

Hi Nick

Before you start taking a supplement you should always check the research to see if it is safe and effective. You would be surprised by the number of ingredients that haven't been properly tested.

Go to PubMed, which is the government's web site for published research studies. Do some basic searching on ingredients like arginine, etc. and look for human safety studies and also studies on athletes. Creatine for example has been studies loads and has a good safety profile. Glutamine on the other hand, doesn't have much positive research backing to improve performance.

Hope this helps
