As I belive I may be a creatine non-responder, I'm thinking of giving it one more try (since I have some left over that it would be a shame to waste) before I switch to V-12. In this last try I want to make sure I'm doing as much as possible to get an effective transport. In the past I used just dextrose. This time I'm going to use ala as well. My question is, with the addition of ala, is it necessary to use the same level of dex, or can I use less, and eliminate some unneeded sugars, since the ala helps in transport? I would also like to know thoughts on proper amounts of dex/cretine for effective transport.
