    For Glutamine and Creatine users....please clarify

    those of you that use these products,what time of the day do you take both? now I take half my creatine preworkout and the other half postworkout......i take 1/2 my glutamine with my wake up Whey shake and the other half with my bedtime casein shake

    the reason for this is ive read and researched and ive found were it says not to take both at the same time becaause both use the same receptors or taking in the same routes through your bloodstream and they cancel each other out

    does anyone else know or have any clarification?

    I have never heard they cancel each other out but haven't done that kind of research on it...

    I usually take creatine in the morning and afternoon. I always take BCAA and Glutamine Post-Workout with my shake & bagel

    I don't know, Bullseye. I take 'em together. I think that whole "they compete for each other" thing is bullshit. I think that is urban legend, along with the following:

    Milk Thistle clogs androgen receptors.
    Saw Palmetto lowers testosterone.
    Grapefruit juice enhances cialis.
    Creatine doesn't work without simple carbs.
    Whey has to be taken 2 hrs postworkout.
    It takes 5000 calories to grow.
    Only 10-12 rep range works.
    DMAA causes heart damage.
    Dbol causes permanent liver damage.
    Milk blocks zinc absorption.
    Etc.
    Etc.
    Etc.

    Sometimes these things are true in certain given situations, but hardly the norm. For instance, I am sure that if my wife was giving me head while I watched porn and had dosed 20 mg of Cialis with grapefruit juice, I could perceive that the grapefruit juice enhanced my cialis dose.

    Re: For Glutamine and Creatine users....please clarify

    I take creatine pre, post and intra workout. I add a small amount in my pre workout, I add some to my xtend bcaa intra workout and then I drink a mixture of Green Magnitude creatine as a post workout mixed with Emergence-e

    As for glutamine, I use the ON powder and again put some in my pre, intra and post workout as well as my pwo whey shake. I use a very small amount in each. Glutamine is an essential amino acid and one of the most widely dispersed in your body. Glutamine has recently been shown to increase HGH production and aid in recovery.

    Taking your glutamine during and after workout is advised. Taking additional glutamine late in the day is a good idea. I am not as confident that the creatine is as beneficial in a split dosing.

    But hey, if it is working - stay with it bro!

    Respect,
    Vette

    Re: For Glutamine and Creatine users....please clarify

    I"ve been taking creatine pre and post workout, split up evenly, and glutamine I take post workout with creatine and a carb/pro PWO drink, then again in between meals a meal or two after working out, then sometimes again between another couple meals later in the evening.

    They might compete to some extent, but I highly doubt that they would have a negative effect on each other or cancel out, aside from the obvious fact that if you have a ton of crap in your digestive system, one particular thing might not get absorbed as well as it would if it was the only thing in there. Like the same reason you take certain supps/things in between meals so they can have better access to your system. So yeah, taking them seperately might allow the absolute highest amount of assimilation per gram of each, but I don't think mixing them will render them worthless or cancel them out. Might just lower the percentage that can be used a little.

    The only two (other than bcaa's and whey) supplements I take are creatine and glutamine and I am a fan of both.

    I use cgt-10 from on. Pretty cheap and has creatine glutamine and taurine. Half in the pre workout half in the post.

    I personally think supplementing glutamine is pointless if you use whey regularly. There is a shitload of it in your protein shake.

    Re: For Glutamine and Creatine users....please clarify

    I have read that it isn't a great idea to take both at the same time every time. I take creatine pre and post, glutamine post and later so the only time I take them at the same time is right after my workout and I take them each by them selves with protein and a few other supplements. From what I have read they will not work as well if taken at the same time every time you take supplements so if you break them up here and there each day it will be fine.

    I'm of a similar mind. Creatine gives me a bigger but "rounded" look. I do think it aids in the recovery process, but I also think it needs to be in-line with your goals. On a bulk, creatine is a good Mate. On a cut, I tend to avoid it.
