    When I take it, I take it post workout, about 30min after my postworkout shake. working on theory thats when my muscles are so hungry they will absorb more than at other times. Whether or not that theory is true though I've got no clue.

    The other reason I take it then is because my insulin is seriously spiked from the the maltodextrin in in my postworkout shake

    You need to add a third option(both) and then I can vote.

    why the :ugh:? after a while, results from taking creatine will plateau, at least for me. after about a month, no more significant gains. so i'm ditching it for the next month in favor of supplemental l-glutamine and also to see my bodyweight when i'm not on creatine to try and balance with what it was before with a different training schedule.
