    I knew the study was out there, but it took a while to find the full text.

    Also, proof of what many of us have been saying, that creatine should be taken pre-workout, or immediately pre-workout (post-workout optional), with the exception of long distance runners etc...etc..

    Creatine plasma levels peak @ or around the 60 minute mark.

    you dumb mother fucking idiot! j/k

    teh graphs show creatine levels in your blood plasma after taking 5g of creatine with 200mL of carbs. The 30min mark is when more carbs (500mL) were taken. the different lines on the graph show teh different type of carb drinks given at teh 30 min mark.

    Placebo=5 g of carbs
    Protein-CHO=50 g of protein and 47 g of CHO
    High CHO=94 g of carbs
    Low CHO=50 g of carbs

    the graphs show the creatine levels in the high carb group had the lowest creatine level spike

    does the study relate creatine retention by the muscle to carb type/timing or only blood concentrations?

    link to full study?
