    how to take Creatine Mono


    sup guys.

    Just got a bottle of Creatine Monohydrate.
    It's supposedly creatine by itself ( i.e 5g creatine per 5g total ) so yea it has no flavour.

    I was wondering how you guys take your creatine. Do you mix it with your after your protein shake or will this break it down?

    Cheers

    You want to take it with carbs, because that is how it is transported. I like taking mine pre and post-WO with my shake/meal.

    For it to be most effective yes. Some other forms , this isn't as necessary. Creatine gluconate has a glucose already attached, and in something like Di-Creatine Malate: "Malic Acid is chemically bonded to two molecules of creatine to form DiCreatine Malate. The Malate bond is intended to improve creatine’s water solubility, absorption, and ATP-supporting actions."
