Creatine from supplements is shown to be in the bloodstream anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks after the last dosage.
as for you should cycle? if you want to, do it. There really isnt a need for it, and there are studies i believe that support the claim.
its all up to you (i personally cycle: usually up to 2 1/2 months on, 1 month off (or more if im lazy), even tho there is no need)

You dont NEED to do anything, but its usually a good idea to take a week off every couple months just to give your body a break.Staple Supplements:
