    Creatine power or pills


    What's stronger and more affective, creatine powders or creatine capsules. I've only ever had a creatine that's mixed with protein in an all in one powder but never actually taken creatine by itself

    Either way it's the same thing. It's really just personal preference on a powder vs a pill

    If you take the pills you are wasting your money and creatine, dissolve it in some warm water and drink it. It will be better absorbed in your body that way.

    Yea definitely buy the powder, creatine mono is really cheap. Just mix it in with some water and let it sit for a bit to help it dissolve. If you leave it in water for more than 8hrs it will become useless so I wouldn't let it sit overnight or anything.

    I prefer the powder,if your looking for a quality creatine with a good value check out SNS Creatine Monohydrate.
    It will last you months,just 5g a day,I usually just throw the scoop in my mouth and wash it down with water,no taste or issues at all.

    go with this. don't get no-name bulk creatine, it doesn't dissolve and end up being a pain in the butt

    I would go with the powder personally for cost effectiveness and ease of use. I own both powders and pills most of the time though.

    Creatine comes with a 5g scoop

    If you choose to buy SNS, then save your Used Product Container (UPC) so you can send it in for more free product!

    some people really like pill so they dont have to mix anything, others like the pills to avoid the taste and work of mixing it and washing a glass. a good form, like OROTINE (creatine orotate) provides creatine without the bloating or cramping

    Any SNS UPC will do, whether that be from the SNS website or Nutraplanet etc. is up to you. I'd say head to NP first because thats where the deals are at

    Luckily, Nutraplanet and SNS have some good deals!. I mean if you look through all the SNS products at nutraplanet, the highest price you will find is $39.99 for the x-gels. That's not bad at all. Plus, you save up enough of the labels and you get free product. How can you beat that?

    Sad to say but. The only thing I've used from you guys is your creatine lol. But I do want to pick up your x gels for a spin and Agmatine next payday...which is conveniently tomorrow! Haha
    Why not zoidberg?
