IMO CEE is the most effective/proven creatine available right now.

mono. cheap, effective and doesn't taste like battery acid.
04-02-2007, 07:24 AM
Mono all the way.
04-02-2007, 01:35 PM
CEE only works if you have the STRAP.
04-02-2007, 06:18 PM
Voted CEE but haven't tried monohydrate. We need more options

I actually liked CEE a lot more than mono. I got less water retention, and looked leaner during it's use with the same strength increases.

I respond better to Micronized Creatine Monohydrate. CEE never really did anything for me. Plus, there are no real scientific studies out there on the other forms of creatine to prove that they absorb better.
I say find one that works for you and stick with it. Everybody responds differently to different things.

CEE, better digestion, seems to fuel up CPh faster than mono
and is dirt cheap, if you know where to get it.
Getting stomach discomfort, ****ting from mono, CEE seems to get absorbed better makes me thirsty as hell right from the start and seems to force the water into me.
CM, beta alanine, CEE -great combo, btw

Everyone is diff. that is the beauty of the whole thing.

Mono for me....AST's Micronized is awesome...no flavor, easy to mix.
I almost choked on some of the CEE products.
BTW, Creatine Gluconate (e.g., Size On) also works great for me!

CEE for me. No stomach discomfort, and it mixes way better with fluid. I completely agree with the fact that everyone's body reacts to mono and CEE differently. I bloat way easy, and feel like crap when I am on mono, but other guys love the stuff. Micronized mono is supposed to be exceptionally better than mono, but that is just what I have heard.

CEE- but only at mono dosages of 5-6gm/day. No bloating, stayed fuller around the clock. But if you do like mono, at least use micronized.
04-03-2007, 08:03 PM
Creatine Gluconate is another option. It seems to be working pretty well for me, but I'm taking other supplements, so it's hard for me to say what's doing what.
The taste of CEE just drives me away. I mix it with Crystal Light Lemon, and it's still pretty foul.
04-03-2007, 08:30 PM
Yeah, I might just try it out. Micronized mono is micronized mono anyway you package it riiiight?? Is there a specific brrand I should look for?? If anyone is looking for a good CEE product, I love the Xpand by Dymatize, that stuff is awsome, and fruit punch tastes AMAZING!! Literally taste like Kool-aid

I haven't noticed a difference in results from both so I stick to momhydrate because it's cheaper and tasteless

I've had better experience with mono (wrt strength). Less water retention (it seems) with CEE, though.
Why aren't there more *micronized* CM choices available? The only one I've seen is AST's brand. Talking bulk powder here.

I personally feel CEE is better. But with a product like creatine, different people will respond differently. Some may not respond at all!
IMO CEE + Arginine/Ort + BComplex = Awesome for preworkout

As a particles get smaller, their total surface area gets huuugggeee.
Example: a 2" cube has a volume of 8 cubic inches, surface area of 24 square inches. If we split that cube in 1" cubes, we'll have 8 of them, with a total surface area of 48 square inches. Split that up again into 1/2" cubes, and we get a total surface area of 192 square inches.
Since the reaction rate is increased by increases in total surface area, and since creatine does degrade in water (we all know the creatine serum story), this ultimately says to me that the reason micronized creatine creates less bloat/water-retention is because less of it is still active as creatine by the time it makes it into your system.
I mean, if you're having great success with micronized creatine, by all means stick with it. I am completely baffled by the fact that people get the same great results with it, but for all I know, there may be other factors which I have overlooked.

Maybe the smaller particle size allows it to reach the blood faster, thereby avoiding some of the *breakdown*.

Personally, I just don't feel there's enough research and knowledge on CEE to really use it everyday. The difference in the two is miniscule, and with that in mind I see no reason not to stick with a basic creatine mono, or if you want something different go with a named blend. You know what ones of those are popular so I'm not going to get into any lists

Micronized Creatine Monohydrate Ast is my first choice. Any good Micronized Creatine Monohydrate HPLC tested
Second choice is Creatine Gluc-used for two months
Third choice at the bottom Cee. Watch out Cee can take the enamel off your teeth. thats why when i was taking it I returned my vatvh to NP(Props to Sam for letting me) and replaced it for Creatine Gluc

No creatine for me anymore, doesnīt seem to do me good in th elong term although it does something, I dopnīt know what it is and if itīs useful.
taurine and propionyl carnitine and citrulline malate is the ****.
and especially propionyl l carnitine works very nicely to keep my muscle untensed and powerful under full workload, much better than ALCAR, in my opinion. :-)
