    Creatine No bloat?


    what is best creatine for not holding so much water. I gain 5 pounds a week on mono. Want something that will not hold as much water. I heard MCC is good. I want something in powder to mix with water or something pre workout. Please let me know. Thanks

    Look into MCC for sure. Why creatine preworkout?

    ive never had any issues with mono. MCC is good. and understand that timing of the dosing of creatine is irrelevant

    i guess i jsut always use to taking preworkout. Creatine nitrate in memsomporph worked the best, no bloating. But mono really makes me gain. Not what i want.

    Try to split the doses up throughout the day. Some people bloat more taking creatine preworkout. Try messing with the dosing and see what happens.

    Edit: if you didn't bloat from creatine nitrate, why not continue running that? You could always run a smaller dose of mono and nitrate together. Or run nitrate workout days and mono off days.

    I am also using creatine supplements. Its creatine HCL and giving me most potent results as a pre workout supplement. One of my friends suggested me to take this. What you guys think about Creatine HCL? I want to know more about Creatine HCL Vs Creatine Monohydrate.

    creatine HCL is fine, but usually the price jump from say MCC to HCL isn't worth it in my eyes. if u can find HCL that u know is legit for the cheap, then go with that. if not i would look into MCC

    Try kre alkalyn. It's a buffered creatine, it works well and doesn't retain water

    the HCl is cleaved in the stomach. It will increase solubility in water that's in your cup and aside from mixing well in a cup, it does not help absorption...

    SO MCC would be ok? I mean people say that mono does not cause bloating or stomach discomfort. They are full of it. It does, i personally know for a fact. I gain like 5 pounds of water in a week easy. I can look in mirror or in pictures and tell. So please dont give me a spill about it. I am just simply asking about other creatines. Any input. I hear MCC does not, why does it not cause a bloat? Thanks

    For a creatine other than mono I would grab CL Green Mag or Clout. Both are more of a creatine complex really

    Edit, or CREignite

    Agreed. MCC is the way to go. And I prefer the 501 count tubs because it's even more economical, but MCC has been one of my staples for years.

    A good value for 30 days with some extras in it. This is the only creatine I can use as the bloat and intestinal issues are too Much otherwise.

    Take your creatine by putting it in your mouth and drinking a glass of water. 5g a day is plenty for gains

    What's up guys. First week on SNS mcc and no bloats and no shxts no negative side effects. Very happy with the product. I have been stacking the mcc along with SNS Agmatine. Adding in beta alanine soon and hopefully xgels for an all out natty. Will keep everyone updated. I have changed my training around as well, from powerlifting to more of a crossfit regimen. Used several prohormones over the past several years and am now taking a long needed break. Excited to be using SNS products to take my physique naturally as far as I can..sj

    Awesome to hear SJ and extremely glad you bumped us with an update my dude! If you're digging MCC you may want to get a bit more. Sadly, it's being discontinued

    Thanks for answering my question.But many times i feel creatine HCL is essentially a super concentrated form of creatine, and a much smaller dose is needed to achieve the same effect in regards to strength and muscle gain.But is price range is too high.
