    Ester creatine is bad for the kidneys. I have never been let down by monohydrate.

    I like DiM-C and Mono combined. This works best for me. CEE is a waste of time, IMO. People complain about bloat with Mono, but luckily I have not had this side.

    I'd say Creatine mono. Used to take the caps then got the powder and just mix it with water. Powder doesn't seem to disolve properly though, even if i put a little more water than recommended there still seems to be a little bit of powder at the bottom of the glass.

    Worth going back onto the capsules?

    I find they are good at different things. Creatine Mono definitely gives the biggest size advantage for me b/c I retain quite a bit of water while on it and get VERY good strength gains. I find the CEE and Tricreatine-Malate didn't give me quite as good as strength gains as mono, but I retained far less water weight. I like mono during my winter months when bulking and such. Then a less water retaining one like CEE or Malate when I want to look less bloaty.

    Just my .02

    I voted Mono in the poll though.

    Tri-Creatine di-methyl-malate-ester-gluconate I heard is the best one to take.















    or maybe just monohydrate.

    that's an interesting comment, care to elaborate? I'd hate to be punching myself in the kidneys and not know it...
    I like CEE too because mono makes me nauseous as well as bloat,
    but I have a feeling that the reduction in sides from CEE is flat out because CEE is less effective. Somewhere here on the boards, an independant study was finally posted on mono vs CEE claiming CEE was only 60something % as effective.

    Ok, how the hell can any of these other versions of creatine be 'better' when they all originate from creatine monohydrate with some kind of weird attachment ?

    dicreatine malate gets my vote out of those listed, but you cant go wrong with c-mono due to the years of studies backing it.

    I've responded to very low dosed kre alk (1.5g/day) and have used magnesium creatine many times in good products (Green mag, nos ether, etc)

    Well maybe, just maybe creatine is a little over hyped. But I know I have seen guys move hUUge weights taking just creatine. Some benching as high as 225 and for reps to boot. That cant be hype

    225 for reps isn't that big of a deal. That's not heavy.

    I have always followed the theory that it doesn't matter how much you lift if you can't lift it correctly.
    That being said. I crap 225.

    The "bloat" is due to the excess water retention caused by taking Creatine...and the whole point of taking it! So when people say that they don't get any bloat with CEE can you even say then that its actually working!?!?

    Anyway that to one side CEE is bad news, what TripDog has said is bang on....watch your kidneys!!!

    If your going to take it, Mono all the way, everytime!

    Alright. I did a search and didnt find anything conclusive so Im posing it here..

    Doesnt creatine **** your liver up?

    As far as I remember, clinical trials resulted in finding that creatine supplementation -> creatinine and, bottom line, high creatinine are bad for your liver.

    I dont understand how this process changed in the past few years...

    Begin the flaming but keep it factual (ie gimmie some clinical studies supporting your claim).

    The best form of creatine? Is Neovar.

    oh. ok.

    Well you guys heard the man.


    P.S.~ The reformulation of Neovar doesn't have CEE, but I still disagree with your stance. To each his own.

    Of course, your totally welcome to disagree, I'd just rather pass on the correct information to the members that are lead to believe you need all the fancy Creatine formulas that include this and do that!

    Bottom line, find a product that is pure creatine, no other ingredients. If one serving is a 70cc scoop then you're wasting your money on marketing from their "advanced delivery systems".

    Raw creatine currently comes from three countries: China, Germany and the United States. Germany produces some of the purest creatine on the market, so find a product that displays the creapure logo.

    Summary
    1) Creapure logo
    2) Creatine monohydrate and little or nothing else
    3) best price you can find

    Its really that simple!
