    Its still affective.Creatine Mono is a great product.But from my knowledge Creapure is a more broken down into smaller particles and a more absorbable for of Reg CM... Being its more absorbable is whats makes it more sort after.

    You do piss away alot of it,thats normal.But no dont chuck it,lol,use it man.

    5 grams and not 3 is my opinion.Dose any time of day.I prefer post workout with a juice and a scoop or two of protwin powder.To each there own.

    Hope this helps.

    If you don't mind a pinch more bloat than I'd say run with it, still gonna get the job done regardless plus Optimum is trustworthy IMO

    it still is creapure.. why its not on the label i have no clue? but the description still reads: "Each serving supplies a full 5 grams (5000 mg) of 99.9% pure Creapure brand Creatine Monohydrate" on the ON website.

    my big gripe with them is they don't include a scooper.. that and its a few bucks more than AX's or other Creapure products..

    The creapure trademark is great, but highly overrated. Any company selling creatine monohydrate will be using pure creatine monohydrate. It's simply way too cheap to get duped on raws.

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES
