    I've read in a number of places NOT to mix with citrus fruit juices (e.g. orange) because they are acidic and will react with the creatine to form a waste product.

    Lots of places seem to suggest grape juice..

    I tried mixing with water but to be honest I disliked the taste. I'm not being a pussy but i'd rather take it with something more tasteful.. and I read that its best taken with a sugary drink that will give an insulin surge and allow the creatine to be absorbed by the muscles quicker.

    What do u use?

    I like to snort it off a mirror.

    Just take it with whatever liquid you prefer.

    from what i've read, it doesnt matter w/ the orange juice. your stomach is alot more acidic than OJ so who cares? i think with the insulin thing you need like 60g of sugar to get the required spike. just drink it with some juice. dont worry too much about it.

    i heard if you take it with water it just goes straight through your system so you need to take it with something like milk... gatorade... anything but water... because you piss it right out :dunno:
