    based on some reading on 1fast400 about creatine (not cee) i noticed this...

    & this

    creatinine :noes: KIDNEYS! :noes:

    i noticed alot of people on here mix their cee with oj (high in citric acid). Is that ok, will the CEE be more effective in grape juice or water?

    or is it a non-issue since it has an ester attached?

    i myself mix it into crystal light or ocean spray white cran & strawberry (also has citric acid). but still very :drool:

    its got citric acid in it too which is why i wasnt sure...and i think the high-insulin part applies to mono...not CEE.

    chlorophyll supps are bullshit, dont waste your money.

    i take probiotic anyway, but creatine is pretty quickly absorbed, so there are no "by-products" do digest, unless the shit you get isnt pure.

    why would the drink acidity have anything to do with creatine?

    creatinine is not harmful to your kidneys.

    adding sugar helps creatine absorbtion marginally; this is proven in clinical studies. so, sugar is not really required when you take creatine.

    personally, i dump one teaspoon of bn cee into a shot glass, add water, mix, and shoot. chase with some water or protein shake.
