    creatine and caffeine?


    When it says that caffeine may interfear with creatine absorption, does this mean only if taken at the same time? Is it ok to take an energey supplement with caffeine pre-workout and then take creatine in a recovery shake post workout and still be able to fully utilize the creatine or do you have to pick one or the other
