I typically use basic creatine monohydrate and have for along time. Then I switched to creapure and found it to be a bit better and I like that it really is more pure. Anyhow I am looking to see if anyone has any other forms of creatine that have worked well for them. I have heard good things about creatine magnesium chelate.

My top creatine products:
* NeoVar Recomped - doubles as nutrient repartitioner (and contains Phosphocreatine)
* Cre-02 - helps with endurance and performance

I use Andraulic State GT to get creatine on my workout days and use Creapure from Primordial Performance to get my creatine during the off days.
lol I feel like I say this every 3 threads though

The trouble with creatine monohydrate, is that you have to "pre load" with it, it attracts water into your gut by osmosis, and makes you bloated and fart a lot. -at least at first. But it does actually work!
Its very inefficient, pre-internet-era chemistry. If you make it into an ester, it passes very efficiently from the digestive system into the blood. In chemistry, an ester is what you get if you react an alcohol with a carboxylic acid.
Creatine ethyl ester works in much smaller amounts, quicker, and without the bad guts.
The good thing about the monohydrate is that you can add it to a protein shake - it hardly tastes of anything. CEE tastes nasty, but you can just take a few capsules of it with your shake.
I used creatine monohydrate for years, but I wouldn't go back to it.
Protein shakes used to be horrible too. They used to make me heave, but now theyre lovely.

Ill admit I did feel Kre-alklyn very well, better than a lot of others ive tried, but creapure worked just as well and was 10 times cheaper. Conrete is the same, I felt it work and its good, but its way too expensive and regular creatine works just as well. I say dont make it complicated and just stick with reg. creatine.

Nor does creatine monohydrate cause bloating and gas in all individuals - this is definitely a case of personal discrepancy and experience.

Creatine Monohydrate for the most part.
I love the Creapure. helps with power and dirt cheap.
somtimes i add it in to my ASGT also (extra creatine)
i dont really giv einto the hyp woth all this forms of creatine. this one works , its cheap. now i move on.

My new fav is APS creatine nitrate... Very nice product...
I have used cre-pure cre 02 that is very good

Again voting up creatine mono, which is the most cost effective choice and currently the best out there. I've seen only on this forum some positive feedback about this Creatine Nitrate, but I have no experience or haven't seen much research on it so no can't say anything for sure about it.
And while I find ON's creatine mono to be pretty tasty in my shakes, if you want an even tastier source you could always stick with steak supplementation

As others have mentioned you really cant go wrong with Creatine Monohydrate, as long as its properly dose you wont notice an excessive water retention and strenght and mass should go up fairly well.
If your looking into a specialized type of creatine, i would look into Creatine Nitrate as the pumps people are getting with Creatine Nitrate is pretty insane! Theres a couple products out that have creatine nitrate but the one thats stands out in my head is C-bol.

CreaPure should not cause any bloating, no.

Creatine mono is the only form that consistently is shown to bring results. I might try this creatine nitrate which seems to be popular, seems kinda bandwagon'ish tho...I rarely trust a product that was reps on everythread (just my opinion)

I meant more that creatine nitrate products are really standing out latley and C-bol is the first one that comes to mind, but im sure any properly dosed creatine nitrate product is getting rave reviews.

i would not be surprised to see primordial coming out with a creatine nitrate in the future, it really is much superior to any other creatine available-and there is no rep sig under my name, just someone who has had amazing results.

Stick with the Creapure it's the best I use Optimum Nutritions version but anything with the creapure symbol is good if it has that symbol they all come from the same manufacturer.

Creatine Mono has been around for years and has years of research behind it. If you want to try the new fangled stuff go ahead, but know that it hasn't the research and safety studies behind it that CM has. Granted there are a lot of people on here that just don't care about safety. The minute a new supplement comes out they will be there with credit card in hand. They care more about what they put in there car, than what they put in there own body. To each his own....

I agree about sticking to research. Creapure, purest form of Creatine, 1000g for 16.95. That is 200 servings, for less than a Jackson, consider me sold.
