I've heard some terrible reviews of GNC's Creatine Monohydrate, so I decided to take part in my own endeavor with their supplement. Plus, the people at my nearby rite-aid always screw up so instead of costing me $40+, I got mine for $27.04 with tax.
Unflavored, Creatine Monohydrate (2.2 lbs), 5g Per serving, 200 servings
I love new supplements any way I can get em' so this was a great feeling. Same old GNC label and Container.
When I got home, I weighed myself to see if I could get any noticeable results right away. I weighed 163 lbs. I took 2 teaspoons, 10 grams of creatine, with 16 oz. (2 cups) of water and cranberry Juice. Then after about 15 minutes, I drank another glass of water. I sat down, hacked some security camera's with google, and fiddled around for about 30 minutes. I went into to weigh myself and I had jumped from 163 to 166! and yes, I realize this is entirely water weight. I'm not a retard here gentlemen (and ladies) =p
Were basically no side effects, no aftertaste or anything, dissolved pretty nicely too. I did however have a slight bloat feeling for about 5 minutes and then it dissipated.
The initial plan is to take about 20g of creatine tomorrow, and then workout on Monday. I don't believe that it will have any effect on my strength since I will have only been taking it for 2 days, however I'll report back regardless.
