Creatine powder vs tablets
How much better is the creatine powder than the tablets? And any suggestion on which tablets are the most effective? As I posted in my last question I am constantly traveling. If the tablets are even half as effective as the powder it would be worth it to me just for the convenience. Any suggestions on if the tablets work and which kind to use?

Tablets are just so much less cost effective. I don't imagine it would take you stomach to long to break them down, so I don't think they would be significantly less effective.

Here's a few:
NP CEE Caps (best price)
Cre-ethyl Thunder (CEE & more)
MST Kreaceps (kre-alkalyn)
Those are just a few of the options out there. Not all of them are pure creatine products mind you, I just skimmed through Nutraplanet and picked out a few. Didn't see any caps, but they are readily available from Prolab and NOW I believe.

Thanks for all the info. That is a big help. I am leaning towards the monohydrate tablets. This is because I tried the CE2 from GNC a while back and saw minimal benefits. Thought maybe the monohydrate might work better for me. Or maybe it is just the GNC stuff that is just not all that good.

Dymatize: 75g for $9
NOW: 90g for $7.50
Ultimate Nutrition (CreaPure): 180g for $12.80
You get the idea. Obviously, you are going to be paying more per gram - but you already knew that! To see what is going to be the cheapest per gram, simply divide the cost by the number of grams. I don't know if you do it this way already, but a lot of people actually get confused by it, so here's how it works (ignore this if you already know...):
Cost per gram = $$$ per bottle / total grams per bottle
= $$$ per bottle / [grams per serving * number of servings]
Find a reasonable price per gram, go with a supplier that you trust (I don't suggest the white van across the street), and you'll be set. You can take the caps according to how many grams of creatine you want per serving, so don't go by their amount per serving, which can be misleading.
