    Yeah, add creatine if you like.

    I didn't notice that much from it, but if it's cheap, calorie-free and helps your performance, I don't see harm in it.

    I would say, get whatever is cheapest - as long as it's 100% creatine monohydrate, it's fine. Don't get the crap loaded with sugar for twice the price.

    Take 5g once a day, every day with 20-30g glucose.

    sorry to bump an old thread, but i'm going to start adding this to my stack. i've heard to load 30grams everyday of this for a week, and then 5-10grams for the next 4-6 weeks, then reload and repeat. is this a good idea, or is it overconsuming?

    It is:
    a) A waste of money
    b) Bad for you

    Just take 5g, once a day, every day with a glucose/dextrose drink.

    That is all.

    Glucose = sugar Dextrose = different type of sugar.

    Insulin spikes help absorb the creatine faster
