I've just started lifting seriously, and now I have a question :D
I've been taking whey protein, creatine and L-Glutamine after my workouts for recovery etc.
I take this protein:

Unflavoured - absolutely
ing dry heave stuff hahah
http://www.bulkpowders.co.uk/product.ph ... _glutamine
I don't hear many people talking about this - is it pretty useless in the end? The website has lots of praises for it so I thought i'd give it a shot.
and this Creatine

Right - So, I'm pretty lacking in knowledge about supplements in general. Is that Protein trash? Because its so cheap I snapped it up but I want to be getting the best of the best (within affordable reason
). Don't want to waste my money on rubbish!
Is L-Glutamine Worthwhile?
Creatine seems to be very hit and miss - I'm taking 5g at the moment, I don't want to do a heavy loading phase and I only take it on my workout days.
I actually only take any of these on my workout days - I work out 4x a week. I only take them straight after my workout.
Is this sub-optimal? should I be supplementing more often.
The reason I've been kinda poked into asking mainly about the Whey Protein is because..
I get really bad gas recently! Like after taking my lovely cocktail of delights a few hours later I get really gassy, and let me tell you its not sweet smelling and rainbows.
I did have some cheap Body Fortress Whey protein from Holland and Barrets and it never affected me like this.
So that's why im thinking its the protein - but it could be just because im taking a big cocktail of those 3 ?
I was taking them with water, but I took them with milk because then its actually stomachable and it appears to be worse.
I hope yous can help with this slightly embarrassing problem - its not fun trying to hold it in in public
Can yous recommend me the protein and creatine that you think is the best? Or that you use.
p.s. off to the gym now !
