yeah, you still get the "good workout" soreness but im refering to the bad aching and stuff if you do too much too fast etc.
and yes... there are side effects to getting too much of anything in your diet.
most vitamins will pass in your urine if you get too much, and this diuretic effect can be bad for you. you can become dehydrated and you tend to lose electrolytes this way.
too many metals in your diet can have bad effects as well, such as iron, copper, magnesium, to name a few.
glutamine is indeed a great supplement for soreness prevention. i like to take mine with leucine as well as the two together helps the muscle recover on a cellular level more rapidly than it would without.
