    which bulk creatine is best...


    I'm looking to try a bulk creatine and am looking for some opinions on which to use. I have plenty of experience with mono so Im looking to try something new. I think I've ruled out CEE since it seems to have been "de-bunked" but I'll throw it in the mix just to get opinions. I'm also considering di-creatine malate magnesium creatine chelate or creatine gluconate.

    What about mono?

    Did you ever think of this:

    1. Mono is proven by 100's of studies
    2. CEE is questionable both in feedback and science
    3. Other Forms of C have next to zero science
    4. other forms brag of less water retention
    5. C works through water retention
    6. C Mono has the most science, most feedback and also most bloat...

    Do you think any of this is a coincidence?

    Now another kind might work or might not but you know Mono will work so why complicate things?

    Was wondering about why mono wasn't listed also.

    curiosity, I want to find out for myself instead of leaning on adds and opinions posted in forums that seem to be swayed by the latest greatest thing. I'm just looking for peoples feedback on their past experiences with these other types to help me make my choice of where to start.

    I dont really think CEE is debunked, just that its value as a pre-workout creatine is questionable. It seems to make perfect sense for post workout, as the superfast aborption + disappearance is ok then. Particularly used with a nutrient repartitioner like in Neovar. Combine that with dicreatine for pre-workout, and I think you end up with a nice combo.

    I can't wait to test Neovar as I wasn't impressed with CEE by itself. I agree with the Di-Creatine, I've tried a few workout drinks with that as the main creatine and it was great. I think that with Creatine mono would be a fantasic pre-workout stack. Like 2.5 DMC and 5CM pre and post if your going with bulk pwders.

    Seeing some of the logs on Neovar I can't wait to give it a go, as my answer may change, lol. Bulk powder i'd go DCM.

    for post workout could do bulk CEE with bulk yellow gold in place of neovar, pretty similar. neovar is cheap tho for the ingredients in it, and you dont have to deal with the taste

    CEE gives me liquified sh!ts and pains in the kidney region.

    I noticed better muscle belly fullness with gluconate.

    Haven't done mono in years, perhaps I should give it a run.

    I guess I should've clarified that. I'm really looking for experiences rather than opinions. It just seems like so many posters on these forums fall victim to the lastest greatest marketing campeign (i.e. superpump) whne they could put together a VERY similar bulk product for 1/3 the cost

    I've been curious about this stuff. How is it better than other creatines and what are the added benefits? I have to make an order soon and might get some of this.

    For me, no bloating like with monohydrate and increased endurance.

    Agree. I used to mix this stuff with CEE and take a little pre- and the rest post-w/o. Very good results, considering I was virtually a non-responder to mono.

    Exclamation Bulk Creatine Gluconate!


    Personally, I would go with Creatine Gluconate for a bulk powdered creatine....you can use less and not worry about any bloating. However, there is no scientific research out to really back creatine gluconate. I can only go off my personal experience and I'll just say it works great for me. I use between 3-5 grams a day. The only other bulk form of creatine I will use is the tried and true creatine mono. A little FYI....creatine mono is used in every creatine formula, including the bulk form of creatine gluconate. The only difference is that the creatine mono is bonded with a glucose ion for better absorption through the intestinal tract. However, the only downside to using creatine gluconate is that it is expensive so if you don't mind the price get CG, but otherwise just stick to the good old fashion creatine mono...creatine is creatine!

    If I had a choice, I would combine Tri-Creatine Orotate, Creatine Alpha-Ketoglutarate, and Tri-Creatine Malate.

    Creatine is creatine. These differences are in delivery systems. They bond CREATINE MONO with magnesium, malic acid, etc, in order to drive more creatine into the muscle. But once your muscles saturated with creatine, that's it. The only thing these new creatines can accomplish is MAYBE reduce bloat, MAYBE.

    Frankly, it's all the same to me. Just pick a product that has 2 different kinds of creatine, like Green MAG or Ragnarok. You should be all set

    Creatine Monohydrate gave me gas, the ****s, and made me feel bloated. But I've had great results using BSN's N.O.-Xplode, which contains Creatine Ethyl Ester.
