Creatine and Protien shakes
Can creatine be taken with a protien shake. From what i am reading creatine should not be taken with any glutamine and most shakes have glutamine acid. I have read nt to take L-Glutamine and creatine at the same time. What is the difference between L-Glut and Glut acid?
I'd like to know too. I know I have seen protein powders made with creatine, so I guess it is OK.

I never mix the two together it's a personal preference, I take creatine in the locker at the gym before I showwer, then go home for a shake.
Muscle tech isolate protien has creatine in it so it should be ok to mix the two

You can mix protein with creatine. The difference between L-Glut and Glut acid is that they are two different amino acids. They have the same basic structure, but Glut acid has a carboxyl group that makes it acidic.

i take nitro tech. it has creatine and glutamine in the ingredients. i would just love to know how much is actually in there, if its just a trace or actually a couple grams

...nitro tech does not have any creatine in it.
yes you can mix creatine with protein, it will not cause any harm. I would suggest mixing the vanilla proteins though, because mixing chocolate with lemon creatine doesnt sound to appetizing. its basically if you can stomach the taste.
But once again there is nothing wrong with mixing. theres no reason why glutamine can not be takin with creatine. also from what i understand glutamin is way overrated.

It's okay to mix them together. I'll take 10 grams of micronized creatine and mix it in my protein shake. Glutamine is over-rated, but it still helps you recover from a workout and prevents as much muscle from tearing down.

I was hoping to modify the question a little bit. I purchased 100% maltodextrin and 100% glucose to make my afterworkout drink. Any experienced users want to recommend the best procedure and additional ingredients?
Can I just put 50grams of each into a protein shake and be done with it? Or should I intake the sugars and get the protein a little later???
