    Glutamine is found in almost every protein you can find, there is no issue with combining protein and glutamine. Actually glutamine and protein are essentially the same thing, protein is composed of amino acids and glutamine is the most abundant free-form amino acid. So there is no problem with taking glutamine with protein, although i do think its wasteful to add glutamine to a protein powder, because there already should be a fair amount of glutamine in the protein pwoder already.

    Well I heard that L-glutamine should only be taken on an empty stomach cause it's very sensitive compound, anything can pretty much ruin it. However, Glutamine peptides can handle much more cause they can attach themselves to protein and food. I think the acid your body produces when eating food does a number on L-glutamine. I prefer to take in on an empty stomach after working out, with spring water. Seems to help drain the lactic acid out of the muscle.

    If you want really noticeable effects from Glutamine take it just before bed on a semi empty stomach with a carbonated beverage.

    It is the only amino acid that is proven to raise GH levels remember though you need to mega dose it like 20-30 grams and its best to take a night to preserve muscle while sleeping also GH levels are highest while sleeping.The carbonated beverage helps very much with absorbing into the blood stream.
