L-Glutamine - Empty Stomach?

I was told that it's best to run this on an empty stomach as it made it more effective.

Is there actually any truth behind this, or does it make no difference if I through it in with a shake or something?

    It doesn't make any difference as glutamine doesn't do anything anyway. Most of it will be used for energy by your intestines.

    apparantly more gets used if its taken on an empty stomach.
     
    as far as the above comment on a personal note and anecdotaly from people that use glutamine i would disagree and say it does have benefits but every1 has there own opinions

    Still can't find the literature to support it but it sounded credible at the time - I believe it has been shown to be effective, but only in doses much higher than most people would take, in the region of 20g ed.
