Creatine is a chemical that is found in the body. It is found mostly in muscles but also in the brain. It is also found in foods such as red meat and seafood. Creatine can also be made in the laboratory.
Creatine is most commonly used for improving exercise performance and increasing muscle mass in athletes and older adults. There is some science supporting the use of creatine in improving the athletic performance of young, healthy people during brief high-intensity activity such as sprinting. Because of this, creatine is often used as a dietary supplement to improve muscle strength and athletic performance.
Creatine use is allowed by the International Olympic Committee, National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), and professional sports.
Analyses of this research show that creatine seems to modestly improve upper body strength and lower body strength in both younger and older adults. (1)
Studies have shown that L-Glutamine supplementation can minimize breakdown of muscle and improve protein metabolism.
Glutamine is an amino acid that is used in the biosynthesis of proteins. Its side chain is similar to that of glutamic acid, except the carboxylic acid group is replaced by an amide. It is classified as a charge-neutral, polar amino acid. It is non-essential and conditionally essential in humans, meaning the body can usually synthesize sufficient amounts of it, but in some instances of stress, the body's demand for glutamine increases, and glutamine must be obtained from the diet.
In human blood, glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid. The dietary sources of glutamine includes especially the protein-rich foods like beef, chicken, fish, dairy products, eggs, vegetables like beans, beets, cabbage, spinach, carrots, parsley, vegetable juices and also in wheat, papaya, brussels sprouts, celery, kale and fermented foods like miso.

Dimethylglycine (DMG) is an amino acid that is found naturally, in small quantities in plant and animal cells. DMG is believed to improve endurance performance, enhance oxygen utilization, and improve the rate of recovery. DMG is an anti-oxidant that may also works as a detoxifier.
DMG supplements may be of benefit to endurance athletes, or anyone, wanting to reduce their risk of infection through training. DMG reduces lactic acid build up and helps with recovery after a hard work out.
