    You'll be fine even in that setup, just make sure to drink at least a gallon of water a day anyway

    Just remember to stay properly hydrated as that is the most important thing.

    So would erase make sense precontest (bodybuilding) to dry out more?

A friend of mine has the exact same problem.
    Would kre all be a good idea to switch to precontest? To avoid any type of intracellular water and keep the water in the muscle?

    I think most would recommend Magnesium Creatine Chelate, Creatine Nitrate, or Creatine Ororate if bloating or water retention is a real concern. I have not used any of these before, but I am going to get around to trying them as soon as I am finished with my kilo of Creapure as I have heard great things about all 3 of these kinds of creatine.

    Nothing wrong with stacking creatine and Erase. And as already mentioned, creatine causes INTRAcellular water retention and Erase decreases EXTRAcellular water retention, so there is NO conflict. Just to note that if you don't know what either does, then I recommend that you make yourself aware.

  10. Creatine monohydrate is the best. It's the most researched and studied because it is the best. All these "new and better" formulas are for people to get sucked into what it really is, a scam. dont fall for the marketing scams
