    creatine


    Hey does anyone know if creatine causes bloating of the stomach? I have been taking it and it seems to make me bloated and my stomach seems to feel a little irritated.

    If I take creatine in the morning, it kills me. When I take it with my PWO shake, it doesn't bother me.

    Yes, certain types of creatine will make you bloat. I had that problem with Cell-Tech, but like RenegadeRows said you may want to try one of those types and see if that works better for you. I've had great success with a pill form of creatine ethyl ester .Good luck

    say if you take 10-15g a day instead of 5g, will you get better results with it? or does it just go out the other end>?
