    It's fine. A bunch of the studies had their participants put the creatine in their coffee

    Done it for years off and on. Strictly with coffee. In the AM and before the gym. Works just as it would normally (I used mono for lack of taste purposes)

    What reasoning have you been told for this? Never heard it, personally. Seems unlikely, though.

    No it won't affect it. They say that because its a dieuretic which means your losing lots of water which Creatibe feeds off it. There's no way caffiene would kill it. Then we couldn't run pwo's or what would even be the point of a company putting it in their pwo's. Now citrus will. The acids break down the Creatibe and makes it a wastless bi product. Creatinine.

    Stomach acid is much lower than citric acid and creatine survives the gut.

    Ya... That's true. It tends to upset your stomach more and less absorption from what I'm reading. That other theory isn't universally accepted

    See the whole diaretic aspect of it.... I'm about to cycle erase for the first time... Should I stop taking creatine monohydrate since it retains water??? Wouldn't it be counter productive.... Or am I over thinking this????

    Water retention from creatine is intramuscular. If you lose water from erase it will likely be extracellular.

    I battled this myself, whether or not to use thermos or products that would affect water. I finally concluded after studying extensively that the products that affect water weren't going to affect water that was intramuscular. It affects water that is stored in other places. So, I currently use creating while using thermos and products such as erase.

    Fruit juices and creatine do not optimize the usage of creatine.

    You want plain old sucrose or the like...

    Fruit Juice = Fructose which is not shuttle to the muscle, it is used in the liver. If you have low blood sugar then you liver release glucose.

    Coffe w/ sugar.

    But creatine with juice is ok, it just wont be maximize...soif you got a routine...eh...who cares...stick with it,
