    I think i just took to much Creatine. What will happen?

    Ok I just brought some of this stuff. http://www.gnc.co.uk/sports-nutritio...er/product.htm . Grape flavor.

    It comes with a scoop which when I weighed it holds 20g of powder. Also on the side of the tube it says mix one scoop with 250ml of water/juice.

    To start it says bulk on it. So take 3-4servings a day for 5 days. Well that’s 120g of powder!! wtf. Have they given me the wrong scoop with it? It’s the same size scoop as my whey protein.

    After looking on the website I noticed it says 1 heaped teaspoon + 250ml water = 1 serving. I’m very confused now. How much of this stuff should I take? I just took 1 of the scoop that came with it (20g) and now i'm worried about taking anymore. How much of this should I be taking? I’ve heard 3-5g a day should be enough??

    check how many grams are in each serving size and see if its accurate.

    You should be taking 5g. of creatine a day or on workout days, the link is broken that you provided. 20g. of a formula could be 15g. of carbs/flavorings, etc. and 5g. of actual creatine. However, I'm not 100% sure because I can't see the label. There is no need to load creatine anyways with 15-20g. daily, 5g. on workout days is plenty.

    http://www.gnc.co.uk/sports-nutritio...er/product.htm Thats the fixed link. It doesnt actally mention how much creatine is in the mix. Im guessing its mostly flavourings... ill stick with 1 scoop for a few weeks, see what happens. If the worst comes to the worst i will just buy the unflavord stuff.

    if you did accidentally take 20-25g of creatine it really wont do anything. I think youll just piss the excess out.

    Chances are that is the way it is. Probably just a lot of flavoring. Worst case scenario if you are taking too much creatine all you have to worry about is MAYBE a sore stomache on top of pissing/wasting all the creatine. I wouldn't worry about it.

    The creatine can hurt your kidneys if you take to much. But you should be fine... unless you were taking to much for a extended use.

    You have to click on the ingredients tab to find out what is in it!

    It is only 5 grams....5000mg = 5 grams!

    Its the pure monohydrate, right? Not the flavored stuff? Just take one heaped teaspoon a day, or the full 20 grams if you want to load. But definitely don't take the big scoop more than once a day.

    i've had probably 25g a day for 5 days i really dont think anything bad will happen to you from taking too much. i can almost say that it helps my strength levels a bit and assists very well in your muscular development and performance when combined with proper food and water intake.
