oh dude sorry, denatures is what i was trying to get at, and its a weight gainer........cytogainer to be exact..there great for when after a work out less dishes, taste good, fast digesting, i know alot of people dont like store bought ones but i just dont have the time lol

I like to mix about 2 litres of gainer together to sip(not all at once, just a little bit at a time) when i get sugar cravings. Not the best sub for sugar lol but it works for me. As far as denaturing the protein, I used to think the same thing when I first started getting into lifting.

This is true. I always keep them in the fridge. Once in a while I get daring and freeze a serving or two and then put it in the blender after it's fully frozen. Sorta like a slurpee/malt thing. I might get really crazy and add some peanut butter.

haha i tried the freezing thing, left it in for like an hour and it was just starting to freeze, so i shook it up and drank in, instant brain freeze lol it tasted so good, but hurt so bad.........so what is the rule for freezing creatine guys??
that has happened, i put it in the freezer so it would get cold faster for the gym, and it was frozen, it tasted fine, dont know if it lost effectiveness though

If you freeze it, instead of drinking it straight away (or within a minute or so of mixing), then creatine WILL lose its effectiveness, as what you will be drinking will be the BYproducts of creatine, instead of the creatine itself.

Well I have learned something new. Thank you! A method to try might be to freeze your shake, and when you want to consume the awesome nutritionous beverage, just add the creatine then.

I usually consume instantly upon mixing. Once in a great while I will throw it in the fridge or freeze one.

okay, CL reps say you can leave greenmag in the refrigerator for 12 hours, so it can get cold.......so i wanted to leave my GreenMag in the FREEZER for 15 minutes so it would get cold faster and bring it to the gym, i then left without it and came back and it was kinda frozen not totally, let it thaw and then drank it, it wasnt in water for more than 2 hours.......i donr freeze it every day or anything, just didnt know if that was still effective
