    I'm currently using GNC's Amplified Creatine 189. They have some amazing "clinically researched" claims that sucked me in, so I bought some. However, I am worried that their huge, silver-coated tablets are not digesting and going to waste (literally). I emailed GNC about this, and the rep assured me that the tabs are definitely being digested, but they seem rock-hard to me.

    As soon as I am finished with this bottle of Amp 189, I am switching to Kre-Alkalyn, which I have heard many good things about!

    Green Mag is a great pre workout.

    Straight creatine Mono powder alone, also works great.

    I've been recently using NP's creatine powder.

    IMO regular bulk tasteless creatine in gatorade would do the trick

    Like posted above, do your own research and see what works for you. Not everybody responds the same. That being said, I had great results with CreO2. Other honorable mentions: Good ole CreMono (taken w/ carbs will help absorption), Storm, Green Mag.

    I like Green Mag.. Mostly because its like, what, 35$ and lasts 80 days? Creatine is one of those things that you shouldnt spend your whole paycheck on... just get whats cheap and works.

    With that said, Amplified creatine is trash. GNC reps just sell it for p3

    You need to get a creatine monohydrate powder that says "micronized" or "creaform" on it. You probably originally got one that was poor quality. I made this mistake the first time I bought creatine. I got vitamin shoppes brand. I had the same effects as you. I was running to the bathroom like crazy at the gym. Once I got a quality product I actually responded to creatine without any side effects. I like primaforce creaform powder.

    +1 for the controlled labs creatines. I've tried both both green mag and green bulge. Both solid products. You get better value with the big tub of green mag tho

    yeah thats what i got drinking lots of water but needing to pass urine all the time, i will try another brand so most guys are saying normal monohydrate creatine .....

    But i must admit i dont do well with powders which is why i dont think i would like green mag i find it hard to drink whey shakes and creatine powders upset my stomach abit allso ...

    Is pill form as good as taking powder mono or is the powder mono the right choice ?

    Creapure, and ONLY Creapure. try the one by Universal Nutrition. save your bucks for other supplements. Creapure does not even give me a bloat that i notice, and no stomach crams. CRE2 killed my stomach.

    The powder was probably very thick too. Creatine will not mix well in water. It's not very water soluble. You can't expect it to completely dissolve in water no matter how pure monohydrate it is. The great thing about it however is that it is tasteless. The creaform is very fine powder. Very easy on the stomach. I haven't had any issues. No bloating, nothing and I have a lot of stomach issues. I'm the kind of person that must eat veggies with every meal otherwise I have digestive issues. Pill form is just as good however primaforce does not make creaform caps that I know of. They make CEE caps but I would stay away from that. All you need is 1 scoop a day. 5 grams. It's not much. You can get a tub for 13.99 and it will last you over 2 months.

    http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/p...rm-400-gm.html

    You will have to take a whole bunch of caps to equal the same amount and it usually cost more. If your still skeptical about powder just make sure you look for creaform on the label.

    I like creatine that is micronized, which helps with stomach discomfort. I love creapure. Nothing has been proven to raise creatine stores more that god old mono. Some creatines might be more effective, because they come with other nutrients, but there still not filling creatine stores any better.

    Its not JUST about how effective it is. Its about how much chemical crap is in it that you don't want. Read the link I posted before.

    Ah...the "GREAT CREATINE DEBATE"

    I believe it is becoming apparent with time that what creatine is THE BEST, is relative to the individual and the only way to find out which one works best for you is to try various forms and blends of creatine. What works BEST for me may be alright or not effective for you.

    So i suggest is pick one.....log/note it carefully...move onto another and do the same. Over time you will see some immerge over others and you will have a well rounding opinion.


    Here are some types of creatine you will want to look into(in no specific order):
    Creatine Mono
    CEE
    Kre-alkalyn
    Creatine Phosphate
    Creatine Pyruvate
    Creatine Citrate
    Creatine GLuconate
    DiCreatine Malate
    Magnesium Creatine Chelate


    Several supps have mixtures of these....such as Cre-02, green mag, SizeOn, etc. Sometimes these combo's may be more effective then trying single kinds on there on...somtimes not so much.


    Ones that i have tried with creatine:

    CEE (didnt like on its own)

    Creatine Mono (love it, best when micronized)

    SizeON (great gains)

    SciFit Kreation (Loved it)

    Green Magnitude (didnt like so much)

    CellMass (wont ever buy again)

    Synthesize/Shotgun (Amazing combo)

    Clout (was alright)

    Xpand (didnt like)

    BIG(CMI) (wont do again)


    Now just cause some didnt work well for me doesnt mean they wont work well for u or others.

    yeah cre-02 seems to be one of the elite creatine pills on the market today. I myself may give it a whirl within the next few weeks. But I will def try it soon.

    Go over to the MST a.k.a. Millennium Sports section of the forum and read up, I did enjoy the OG Kceps but gave it to my brother and have been religiously taking Cre02 for the past 14 months, it is the best product IMO period !!! remember Cre02 is more than a Creatine product, it has some added stuff into it which makes it extremely effective.
