One of the mixes contains creatine and glutamine. I use the lef.org protein powders because they're very high quality, mix easily and are fine taste-wise.

I too get an upset stomach when taking certain vitamins. If I take them on a full stomach, right after eating, they don't bother me.

I take multivitamin (I go with herbal just because I can't stomach the other kind -this is made with vegetables so I do not get sick to the stomach with them) also Calcium with vit. D. But I notice more energy since taking a multivitamin.

I take Glucosamine with MSM and chrondroitin for my knees and neck. --just started taking it about a month and though it did take a little bit; it is working, though I am going to go up on my Glucosamine intake.

And I drink whey protein which does have creatine in it. I see a difference in my strength training with this and I have been only taking it for around 3 weeks now.

Thank you everyone for your input.

CALGALFOX: Does your whey protein already include the creatine and gluatmine or do you add it?

DEBI: Do you take your CLA 30 min before eating? I have heard a couple different ways people are taking it, not quite sure which is correct.

I use nutrient timing to help with muscle development and to have a minimum of soreness. Also, I take Omegas, E and C to help with immunity break down that you can get from heavy lifting.

So I take: Whey protein isolate with creatine and glutamine directly after a work out, 2 hours later a whey protein isolate, the Omegas, E and C, multivitamin and coQ10.

Since I'm over 40 (okay, closer to 50), my nutritionist also says to take baths with magnesium (Epsom salt). She says all women over 40 should do that since we typically don't get enough magnesium and it helps the speed of your metabolism.

I also do whey protein and I think it does make a difference.

Does anyone use any supplements for joints? The way my knee bothers me I though I might try something.
