Glutamine Stability


Maybe a stupid question but I just started using glutamine and I'm wondering if it's stable enough to put in my pw shake which I make the night before. thanks


Sorry, I don't have an answer to your question, just wanted to make sure you've read this article at T-mag:

Glutamine: Destroying the Dogma by David J. Barr

A real eye opener for many though I always suspected it as I never got anything from glutamine. Here's some links:

From what I've read the regular glutamine powder is only stable for 5-10 minutes. However, glutamine PEPTIDES are very stable. I've seen a few glutamine supps that advertise the fact that they use peptides and that they're stable in solution. So just look around---they're out there.
