Any reason why you want sugar in it?

Latest research says it doesn't do the body any good. No evidence of improvements in range of motion, decreased pain, increased cartilage/connective tissue in the joints.

Researchers looked at both the glucosimine/condroitin combinations and glucosimine supplements. Researchers don't have an answer to "why people that use this report relief".

So try it if you want to. There weren't any recommendations to stay away from it, so the only thing your loosing is some cash. If it works for you, it's money well spent. If not, well, you can always quit taking it & buy more ammo.

Dude, Glutamine is an amino acid... totally different from glucosamine. THere are studies that say steroids dont increase muscle mass. Dont beleive medical studies are always accurate. I have heard some anecdotal reports from athletes using Adequan injections which are supposed to be way better than some simple oral glucosamine supplement. This is totally illegal though as its a drug for use in race horses primarily.

On another not nmy meal replacements have a small amount of Glutamine in them... they are jsut food IMO, dont expect drug like effects, expect food like effects.

I take it that you are probably using this in a post work out shake? Well look at the product you take, because alot of Whey products already have glutamine added. As far as the sugar, use dextrose. You can get a 11lb bag from Supplement Direct for $10. Its a dirt cheap way to get your simple carbs after a work out. That and it make s your shakes taste much better. Put one scoop of dextrose in with 2 scoops GF PRO whey green apple and 3 grams of glutamine, it tastes exactly like a apple Jolly Rancher.
