    How long does it take for Creatine to show effects?

    I've been taking Creatine for the past 2 days, and I realize the effects won't be instantaneous, but I'm just wondering, on average how long it takes before you can see some visual changes.
    ** I know it will take longer than a couple days, I just want to know if I should continue it the way I am, or change my intake amount.**

    Visual? it just a pre workout supplement. For me i mixed it with some green tea before the gym and and i get a tingling feeling for about 20-40 mins. takes about 10 mins to kick in for me. maybe its something else but that how i feel when i take the Creatine. i used a whole container in a month and i look pretty toned compared to my current pic.

    Creatine is not a supp your gonna see huge changes visually. You'll pack on like 2-4lbs of water weight. After your muscles are saturated with it, around 1-2 weeks, you could see a small increase in strength. That's it's main purpose, to hydrate muscles and free up some ATP for use during a lift

    Creatine is not a pre wrokout supplement. At all. It doesn't "kick-in" after 10 mins. It has no acute effects.

    Ha I figured he was talking about a PWO that has Creatine in it. Tingling he gets may be from Beta Al.

    If not....strong Broscience

    give it 2-3 weeks before it kicks in, creatine is mostly for more energy, endurance and strength. it's nothing like dat der cell-tech so don't get your hopes up if the results you get from creatine are not good.

    That's a preworkout.

    Acute effects are from stimulants, vasodilator and beta-alanine

    Don't think of creatine as a supplement for size, think of it as a tool that will help you get more size. Sort of like cleaning a gun. It doesn't make the gun fire, but it helps it makes it easier for the gun to fire by providing a good environment. The creatine can help you in your lifts, and everyone knows more weight=more size, so its were you up for success. Op, with a good routine and proper diet, creatine will definitely provide you with a good opportunity for gains. Hope I helped.

    You may see extremely small changes soon. Don't expect anything big .. it's just creatine.

    indirectly it does. And a little bit directly maybe, mostly by increasing water transport into muscle tissue. And this does not mean "fake muscles", muscle tissue is 80% water . . .
