ok...i have a few questions...first of all, is the reason that people drink a glass of red wine before they go onstage is that it has glyerol in it?? also, those of u who take glycerol before a show, how many grams do u take and when do u take it? thanx...richie

Red wine does not have glycerol. I take glycerol for shows. I mix 2 fl. oz with 2 oz. of water and a scoop of protein. I take it early afternoon the day before a show, the night before a show, and as soon as I wake up the day of the show. It works for me, but it doesn't work for everybody, test it out before you try it.

You should be able to find glycerol at a health food store. If you haven't used glycerol before, I wouldn't advise experimenting with it now because it doesn't work for everyone. You might just use your bars when you carb up.

I never had much success with glycerol. Diuretics though......
