- Supplement Facts
Mix 2 scoops (75g) into 8-10 fl-oz water or Mix 4 Scoops (150g) into 16-20 fl-oz water. The optimal time for a serving of CYTOGAINER is 30-45 minutes immediately after your workout. This timing is critical because your muscles absorb approximately 80% of the aminos and carbs necessary to help them grow during the two hour period immediately following exercise. For additional carbs, protein, and energy take CYTOGAINER as a snack or meal replacement.
CytoSport products complement a healthful eating and hydration plan that, when combined with a balanced exercise program may contribute to healthy weight management and recovery from exercise.
Use 1-3 servings (75g per serving) per day as part of a well-balanced diet that includes whole foods and other protein sources.Do not use this product as your sole source of nutrition.

- Health Notes
Glutamine for Sports & FitnessGlutamine
Why Do Athletes Use It?*
Some athletes say that glutamine helps boost the immune system.
What Do the Advocates Say?*
Glutamine is the most utilized amino acid in the body. Based on its biochemistry, glutamine is a good supplement for athletes. Glutamine is best taken consistently, on a daily basis, rather than just before or after a hard workout, to build up tissue levels.
Although glutamine is inexpensive and non-toxic, realize that you run the risk of upsetting the balance of the body's amino acids (as is the case with supplementing with only one of any of the amino acids.
How Much Is Usually Taken by Athletes?
The amino acid glutamine appears to play a role in several aspects of human physiology that might benefit athletes, including their muscle function and immune system.1 Intense exercise lowers blood levels of glutamine, which can remain persistently low with overtraining.2 Glutamine supplementation raises levels of growth hormone at an intake of 2 grams per day,3 an effect of interest to some athletes because of the role of growth hormone in stimulating muscle growth,4 and glutamine, given intravenously, was found to be more effective than other amino acids at helping replenish muscle glycogen after exercise.5 However, glutamine supplementation (30 mg per 2.2 pounds body weight) has not improved performance of short-term, high-intensity exercise such as weightlifting or sprint cycling by trained athletes,6, 7 and no studies on endurance performance or muscle growth have been conducted. Although the effects of glutamine supplementation on immune function after exercise have been inconsistent,8, 9 double-blind trials giving athletes glutamine (5 grams after intense, prolonged exercise, then again two hours later) reported 81% having no subsequent infection compared with 49% in the placebo group.10*Athletes and fitness advocates may claim benefits for this supplement based on their personal or professional experience.

Comments about CYTO SPORT CytoSport™ Cyto Gainer - Banana Creme:
Not going to lie, this product is amazing. I mix it with peach and mango juice, and it's the best weight gainer ever. I take it in the morning and right before I go to bed, and so far I have gained about 10 lbs. I have no complaints.
