    I looked through some studies...no set in stone answer that I have found yet.

    It does convert at least partially to creatinine pretty fast...but not sure how much. It also depends on how diluted the solution is as well, and the pH of the solution, temperature, etc.

    i wonder if pre workout formulas have anything in them to prevent degrading as quickly as creatine on it's own?

    its once the creatine is mixed into liquid it begins to degrade, so prewo powders are g2g as is, without any creatine preservation stuff

    hot work in a box factory in the summer months-guess my idea of sipping a creatine containing pre workout mix during shift for a boost is a bad idea....
