    Creatine Products


    I'm just trying to get a feel for what people take as far as creatine, and their opinions/results.

    Personally, I'm on my 3rd type of creatine.

    First, I took Muscle Tech's Cell Tech, a little over a year ago, last summer - and I got some pretty good results. The product is extremely pricey, and it really bloated the crap out of me - but other than that, the results seemed to work.

    Second, this past winter, I took CE2 by MRI --- I got nothing. Zero response from this product. In fact, I was stacking with NO2, still - nothing.

    Now, I'm currently on BSN's Cell Mass. I'm not sure how I feel about this product yet. I'm stacking it with NO-Xplode, which I agree with the rest of the threads that you must take it on an empty stomach. Anyway, I'm going into my fourth week of the stack, and I'm starting to see some results - but nothing major.

    Overall, for me at least, my body reacted to Muscle Tech's product the best. With BSN beginning to take effect, and MRI's product a bust.


    What's the best thing out there? I'm tired of trying out different types of creatine - I would rather hit a certain brand for 6 weeks, take about 2 off, and then get back on the same.


    What do you guys think? What's your opinion on the creatines out there?

    read thru this thread
    Recommend me a Creatine Product

    seems like many people like mono or sizeon. i saw results with mono.

    also, i bet there are a bunch of other threads on this, so if u want more info, maybe do a search for creatine and see if there is anything good.

    Mono as in monohydrate? Is there a specific brand, or are you just referring to creatine monohydrate?

    ...and SizeOn, never heard of it.

    you can buy basic creatine mono in bulk at GNC or online. From personal experience, I think it's the easiest most effective form of creatine available... and it's dirt cheap too. It will bloat you up, but if you're taking creatine then you generally wouldn't worry about water weight in the first place. I got bulk creatine mono powder, 200 servings, for $13 at GNC

    SizeOn is a creatine product made by the company Gaspari. You take it during and after your workout. It contains creatine gluconate, which is supposedly a very fast acting creatine compound that results in little bloating and good strength gains. I haven't tried this product myself to recommend it.

    Personally, I'd just stick with mono for starters. It works and it's not that expensive.

    I'm not really a starter - I didn't list creatine monohydrate in my past uses because I thought people, particularly bodybuilders, were past that.

    Maybe I'll pick up some basic mono this weekend from GNC.
