What is the main difference......


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about What is the main difference...... within the Bodybuilding Supplements category.

Excerpt: between glutamine and glucosamine chondroitin. I take glutamine after my workout, but I also bought some pills for the morning that contain 1000mg of glucosamine sulphate, 800mg of chondroitin sulfate, & 800mg of MSM(methylsulfonylmethane). Thanks for the help!

    Glutamine is the primary amino acid found in muscle...Glucosamine is used to alleviate sore joints...

    The difference between glutamine and glucosamine chondroitin is the same as the difference between Vitamin A & Vitamin B complex and so on
    Glutamine is metabolized via mitochondrial phosphate-dependent glutaminase
    it's much like the relation between Glutmine & Glutathione

    Grams not Milligrams.

    Aim for 20+/day if training intensely. If consuming a good protein drink, it should already contain adequate amounts.

    Glucosamine and chrondiotin are excellent for sore joints, because they help to rebuild the cartilage, if taken on a daily basis. I find the glutamine reduces the ache i feel the following days after a workout, i think its the most abundant amino in the body aswell, i could be wrong though.

    Are you serious? 20 grams of glutamine/day! I've read 8-10 grams is plenty! Anyone else got something on this?
