    Creatine recomendation


    I've been using cell-tech, but I am curious what everyone else uses. Is there a better option out there, something I haven't heard of yet? TIA

    I'd say the top few are Anadraulic State (more than just creatine though), cre-02 or Neovar Recomped.

    Been using Neovar now for a bit over 2 weeks, definitely the best creatine product I've used so far. No bloat at all, looking really lean still when I look in the mirror. The repartitioning effects are also an added bonus. It's also pretty damn cheap.

    Gaspari Nutrition's Size On creatine supplement is something special, ive been just using monohydrate by body-tech, vitamin shoppe's storebrand is in expensive but if you wanna gain some good lean mass take 30 day periods of Size On.

    I like neovar, but I usually just go for plain German-quality creatine monohydrate.

    I take Universal Creatine Chews. Carry anywhere and is easier than mixing. Not too nasty either!

    I totally agree... SizeOn is definitely something else.

    Just to throw in my .02, monohydrate is probably going to be your best bet for cost as it gives pretty consistent results. I just picked up some Dicreatine Malate yesterday so i'm interested to see how that works.

    Jack3d. It has the "one and only" in it, Creatine Monohydrate And you don't need a loading phase with Creatine mono., despite whatever you hear.

    Try Sizeon pills. It's glycerol based. Correct me if I'm wrong... Glycerol is a type of carbohydrate and that helps to transport the creatine to where it's needed.

    I was just surprised no one mentioned it.

    I use it, I didn't know it had creatine in it until I took it and got a headache.

    And what makes you think that the Creatine gave you a headache? You have bad experiences with Creatine? I would have that it was from Y-RD, but...

    Sorry didn't see your initial post about Jack3d.

    Usually if I don't up my water intake to 1.5 gallons from 1 gallon when taking creatine I get headaches.

    I have a post on here somewhere where I asked them how much creatine is in Jack3d and they said 5g per 3 scoops. That's plenty for me.

    Creatine can help with anaerobic/intermittent high-intensity performance because it helps replenish stores of creatine phosphate, which the short-term energy system during such exercise is primarily dependent upon (McArdle, Katch & Katch, 2007).

    Plenty of great suggestions. I've always stuck with the KISS principle for creatine, and just buy the bulk micronized creatine mono for $13/kg . Take 5g pre and post-WO with carbs, and you're golden.

    Several other good options out there mentioned. Clout, Neovar, GreenMag. Many PreWo supps include creatine, and Jack3d was mentioned.

    Hi,

    I have heard that Creatine does more than provide your cells with ample amounts of creatine phosphate. There have been studies performed that suggest creatine has the ability to raise Growth Hormone levels in the body.

    Plain old creatine monohydrate with carbohydrates, simple but proven to work.

    I believe what you're referring to is the creatine improving the hydration status and therefore maintaining the volume of the cell, much in the same way that glycerol can, this is shown to promote anabolism (Haussinger and Lang, 1993).

    From what I've read IGF I and GH (plasma) are not improved further by creatine supplementation (Volek et al. 2004), however, skeletal muscle intracellular IGF I mRNA expression does increase though with supplementation (Louis et al. 2003). I suppose the effect of creatine on GH/IGF I is open to debate, anyone got any extra studies?
