what/how to take creapure
Hey members I am brand new to this site and I've gotta say this is the best place to get info bar none! I read a recent post about creapure and it really sparked my interest because of its amazing value..... However when looking at it I realized that it doesnt explain how to take it. Do I take it with 8-12oz water?...Do I take it mixed with something else (preferably flavored)? What would be your recommendations/experience with it. Thanks!

Take as noted on the side of the container, as well as PP's website:
"As a loading phase, take 3-4 servings (15-20g) per day for 6 days. After the initial loading phase, continue with 1 serving daily (5g)"
Personally, I mix it with my post-workout protein shake -- it's flavorless, and mixes extremely well.

"loading" seems to be a little outdated a search should find info on this.
that being said the outline above seems reasonable. in my own personal exp i took 10g (5 am on empty stomach then some time later, or pre and post on wo days.) ed for 2 weeks then 5 a day either am or pre/post. results took about a week DRAMATIC results were seen in 3-4. so if you load maybe it will come sooner
btw now i take 5g off day 5pre/5post and stack BA along side add that also if you havent already gl

oh and its pretty tasteless i take it in water very little actually like a shooter just enough to dissolve it and chug. some reccommend taking it with sugar ie fruit juice gatorade but i dont find it necessary
just my input

ya take creapure just like normal creatine. 5g a day is the recommended dose. and for the loading phase, there really isn't any proof that its better to load up. it would hurt but i think its unnecessary.

Just follow the instructions on the label and you will be fine.All manufacturers recommend a little differant way of taking it.Most has a loading phase for 4-5 days at 20grams a day. 5 grams with each meal and another 5g before bed.I would recommend the Optimum Nutrition Micronized Creapure.Tremendous value.Good luck.

I would go with something like 10g/day for 5 days, split pre-wo and post-wo. Then 5g/day after that post-wo. Might also want to look into taking the post-wo dose with some gatorade powder (POWDER, not premixed, bottled Gatorade) for some more delivery.

In case your unfamiliar with where PP sources the creapure from: http://www.creapure.com/index.php?id=28

No need to load, or take with high glycemic carbs. Creatine is a stored substance and doesn't matter when you take it.
