    It wont make a difference

    I answered my own question, if you google "sugar with creatine" the first thing that comes up is some article on bodybuilding(dot)com's site all about creatine. It's an interesting article.

As far as I know the standard dose of creatine monohydrate would be 5g. I have tested a lot of different monos and no matter how pure it is, I always got GI distress and felt really bloated. I had several Kre Alkalyn-runs, but only for 3 months in succession. I do need a creatine form that is cheap, much cheaper than Kre Alkalyn, which will leave me without GI distress. Do you have any tipps for me, regarding this subject? I am really looking forward to your recommendations.
    I have been using Creatine Monohydrate from Nutrabio.com for going on 2 months straight. I have had no GI distress with this product and I dose 5-10 grams of it daily.

    Ive been thru this debate so many times. Those studies are poorly structured or based on outdated science or totally irrelevant. I tore this exact piece apart on his FB page one day a few months ago.

    You just referenced Kiefer, one of the biggest jokes in supplements.

    37g LMAO! Get ready for some gnarly DHT levels. As soon as that ****ing article came out I knew this was going to happen...
    So is this wrong as well? .3g creatine/kg...200lbs = 90.91kg=27g creatine for maintenance

    They are probably using the exact same studies Kiefer did, but I couldnt find anywhere they referenced what they based that off of.

  6. I get a feeling that is a typo. In the section above they mention 20g split into several doses for loading then say the maintenance level is significantly lower than that. They probably meant .03g/kg of BWT, which is a number I have seen referenced for maintenance dosing quite often.

    If by "interesting" you mean "horrible", then I agree.

    That calculator has me loading at 39g/day, and then a maintenance dose of 17g/day.

    If by "horrible" you mean the calculator that I didn't reference for that very reason you would correct sir lol.

  10. Creatine Mono should be fine for most users(especially at less than $15 for 1.2kg). If GI issues are a concern then maybe try some mono.....all the other "designer" creatines will do nothing more than take your money
