Iv taken creatine before and noticed a pretty big gain in recovery time and maybe a little strength but im thiknking of taking it again but Iv heard a bunch of people say how well the new ethyl malate blend of creatine is so much better and some say it does not work at all. I know my friend takes the Nox and Creatine that is made by BSN tech and I could not believe after 2 weeks he was getting 15 pounds more on his bench workouts then he was 2 weeks ago. Can anyone recomend any that is good and affordable or should I just stick to a good diet and workouts. Thanks in advance.
