    I've been adding Glutamine and BCAAs to my V12 Turbo.
    is it ok to do this?
    are they absorbed the same way by the body?

    It depends... it is L-glutamine and creatine monohydrate?

    Better be careful if that's the case, the compounds interact synergistically and your balls might explode.

    So then what happens if you use ....EL-glutamine ? I am starting a cycle and dont want to fuck myself up like I did with SCO. Don't ask me for a source either.

    not saying its good/bad. this just says it might not be worth it...(only mono) 'Glutamine’s cell swelling properties are dependent on sodium being co-transported into the cell with the glutamine. And in fact, it is the sodium itself that is attracting the water. A little known fact about creatine is that it too is dependant on sodium for cellular uptake. A couple of studies showing that taking carbs with your creatine increased creatine uptake mistakenly led most people to believe that insulin was responsible for the additional uptake of creatine. One recent study has shown this not to be the case however, leaving the probable mechanism similar to that of glutamine’s (1). Unfortunately if glutamine and creatine share the same mechanism of cell swelling, they will most likely not be additive. In other words, if they both do the same thing in the same way, taking two together won’t do any more than taking only one in higher amounts.Bottom line…Glutamine is a good supplement and offers many health benefits to athletes. Creatine, on the other hand, is a proven ergogenic aid and may very well have other effects on protein synthesis beyond cell swelling. For instance, nearly 70% of the energy derived for protein synthesis is provided by the phosphocreatine energy shuttle and not from glycolysis. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that a creatine supplement that has additional glutamine in it would be superior to creatine alone, with respect to the effects of creatine. If the company claims that their product offers both the benefits of creatine and glutamine in one supplement, great, knock yourself out if it’s still cost effective.'http://strengthnspeed.tripod.com/Nutrition/Supplements.htm

    i've started taking just straight ethyl ester ester.

    it's a superior absorption rate to just plain ethyl ester. :broly:

    :dunno: the stuff I've got has glutamine and creatine already together, if it wasn't safe to mix the two then I'm sure they wouldn't have included Taurine too :eek5:.
