    I was wondering if it would be fine to put my creatine in my protein shakes instead of plain old water like the directions suggest.

    Some people have told me to take it with fruit juice like grape juice so it gets absorbed quicker. Does this really matter or can I just take it pre and post workout with my protein shakes?

    Thanks.

    I just put it in my protein shake for convenience (I thow in some protein, creatine, glutamine) all in one to make it easy. However, creatine works best with sugars, so after taking my protein shake I will drink a small glass of orange juice or something like that.

    Probably CEE then. Which will ruin anything you put it in.

    With monohydrate though it is tasteless.

    Mono is tasteless, CEE is battery acid.

    I recommend to not put CEE in your protein shakes because it will make the whole shake taste bad as opposed to a small shot of grape juice ( which is what I use ).

    I've never put it in with my protein shake because I want it to get absorbed as quickly as possible.. I don't know how much it matters, but that's the way I've always done it

    Ok so the general consensus is to put some in a little grape juice or similar. Thanks.

    I guess I'll just take protein shakes and have a "shot" of CEE in grape juice. :rofl:

    I think the formula changed or something. The BN CEE I was using about a year ago was very sour. It was not "that" bad though.
    Then I ran out and ordered some new stuff about 7+ months ago and it was not sour, it was incredibly bitter and comparable to battery acid.

    Yeah, my assumption was that it was currosive and was eating away at my teeth enamel.

    Seriously though, I just switched the mono. It is tasteless and supposedly works just as well without these creatinine level increases that some claim from CEE.
