As far as when to take it - first thing in the AM, pre-workout, post-workout, bedtime.
Now if your goal is weightloss, dbflgirl's advice is to *only* drink whey immediately post-workout - that casein or other protein is best for all other times. If you're already ripped it doesn't matter as much...

1. Some whey protein has glutamine in it, so you CAN take it together.
2. Ideally, you would take them separately.
3. Another member pointed out a study that says glutamine is hardly absorbed at all after it reaches the stomach thus, rendering it useless when taken by oral method.
Hope that helps.

I pour a small scoop of glutamine powder into my protein shakes each time I make-a-shake.
I don't know about the bit of not being able to assimilate glutamine. Heck, if that were the case I think I'd be mad as heck as someone.HST is my choice of training

There are a many studies backing this up.
Glutamine is good if you can get it in your system but alas, the delivery method is not yet there.
If you need the studies, do a search on the supplement section."
To be clear, he was speaking ^ of taking creatine and glutamine together. However, the issue regarding glutamine stands by itself. This was posted near the end of the thread and no studies/links were provided to substantiate the claim. I remembered this because I found it interesting, as at the time I was considering buying some separately.

Glutamine is supposed to help in recovery after workouts. I tried it post-workout and found no difference with and without it. What I found effective was a good post-workout shake such as Surge.Joel

Not sure yet, but seems to make weight loss harder. Could that be a sign it is working, in that muscle is building, not deteriorating after a long work out, eating as pourly as I do??
