    How many grams of Creatine a day?

    I am taking Pure Creatine Monohydrate and have all ready gone past the loading phase and am currently 4 weeks into use. A lot of you on here say to take 5g a day, however the company suggests on it instructions on the packaging to take 10g a day. Just wondering if I should follow these guidelines or not?
    Cheers

    Studies involving a loading phase have subjects ingest 0.3 g per kg per day for 5 days followed by 0.03 grams per kg per day after that loading phase. You are specifically asking about the maintenance phase, which is the 0.03 grams per kg per day amount. OP, since you weigh 155 pounds, you would take 0.03 g X 70.31 kg = 2.11 grams per day to maintain.

    You can take 3-5 grams per day as insurance if you like, as you will piss out the "extra" creatine, but there is absolutely zero benefit to taking 10 grams a day to maintain.

    You can mix it with whatever you want: milk, juice, water, and there is no need to avoid caffeine.

    I find the most success within my workouts when I take 5 grams of pure creatine monohydrate pre-workout each day, ensuring that I drink at least 4 litres of water per day to avoid bad cramps. I usually find that taking creatine post workout increases the chances of me getting cramp when I sleep, theres nothing more annoying than that.

    I hope you realize that the timing is completely irrelevant. Once you've continuously taken creatine for 2-4 weeks (don't remember the exact amount of time), it'll take up to 4 weeks for your creatine levels to go back to normal. I.e, the levels don't change on a daily basis.

    That's not the reason why you're having cramps.

    Stick to 5g. They probably just say 10g a day because you'll piss out half of that (or more) and run out of your tub twice as fast, and need to buy more of their product.

    He didnt say the timing had to do with cramps, or that it makes a difference. He said he finds it best when he does it pre-workout, which I do to, most likely because of the strong a fuaahh placebo affect that must occur because even thiough I know it probably wont do much, seems to help me. And yes, not having enoguh water can cause cramps while on creatine.


    OP, take 5g creatine, or one heaping tsp either before, after, or split it up into both before and after your workout. Drink a lot of water. Thats all you need to know

    • Do not taste
    • No additives
    • Support for power and energy
