    Does creatine have to be dissolved?

    Hi guys, what I do is I just put a scoop in my mouth, and wash it down with water. I've recently been told that creatine is only effective when its dissolved in water/any other liquid. Is this true?

    You're fine.
    "A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks." —Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, 1785

    If that were true, then you wouldn't be able to effectively take it as pills. Luckily, it's not.

    Apparently the word is, it needs to be dissolved for it to be effective. Otherwise you pass most of it out. The only real way to do this I find is by using warm water.

    P.S. before taking it (I recently got up to 190 and taking bodybuilding seriously) I researched it , but never came across this fact until a few days in. It was when someone posted will Brinks articles. All the old studies were done with warm beverages such as coffee but I never linked two and two together. How much if any I absorbed previously I do not know.

    I too have recently just seen this, probably in same thread. I don't know if it's true but I'm not risking it until I see further evidence. So I am drinking it warm. Coffee so far and it's good. Used to put it in my shakes but oh well.

    It does not need to be dissolved in water or liquid for it to work effectively. People have been taking creatine for what 15 or so years now and getting great results without it being dissolved first.

    ummm so do the contents of my stomach NOT meet the criteria of warm solution to dissolve in??? not like creatine is targeted to be absorbed through the mouth or troat tissues...... otherwise we would gargle with it or some BS

    makes zero sense why not?
    i too take scoop in mouth and drink cup of water after, works fine for me.
    my two cents

    You guys can take it whatever way you want. Just keep wondering why there are so many threads about the stomach-related "side effects."

    Its' so dumb how people have to complicate the simpliest things lol.


    You really think letting it sit in a bit of warm water is going to change how it absorbs compared to puting it in your mouth, washing it down with water, and it sitting in you warm stomach with all the other liquids, acids etc...?

    Apparently so. If you do not dissolve it, ends up in the small intestine where your body isn't able to properly dissolve it, therefore wasted money and time.

    Micronized I believe avoids that problem as it dissolves much easier.

    Creatine

    Creatine begins to break down if you let it dissolve in liquid for an extended period of time (turns into creatinine). Just mix and drink and you'll be fine.

    That's funny.

    According to that logic, if you were to swallow a spoon-full of sugar, the "body wouldn't be able to properly dissolve it, therefore wasted money and time".

    This post is ancient, however, for anyone wondering...just take your creatine.
    Fancy methods of taking supplements are simply marketing schemes so you buy the latest product.

    This is absolutely not true. You can have your creatine however you want to man.

    I mix it with my protein powder maybe that will help, like other people said it don't matter how you take it. Since I don't have the proper shaker with that ball inside creatine is just like sand in my bottle.

    Yea but its already dissolved into the meats, otherwise you would see powder all over your meats. It makes sense that it should be fully dissolved first to get the maximum absorption from it. I'm sure if you take it with water with out dissolving some of it will dissolve maybe even most of it, but depending on how much you are taking that undissolved stuff can be uncomfortable to your digestive tract.

    old but true

    Ever since I've mixed CM with hot water I've had no more of the $hit$, so I've noticed a difference. I'd rather go with info from will brink than the brah scince of other posters. just because you think you're using logic and have it figured out does not mean you're right. People used logic back in the 1600's to say the earth was flat because why would you think otherwise, untill someone used science to come up witht the fact that it's round. So logic might say it dissolves but science seems to say otherwise. Read the post by Will Brink.

    I take mine the same way. Most of the time creatine doesn't mix amazing so it's easier for me to just shoot it
