    Creatine Questions

    First off I use to take pro source creatine and it says it is Creapure, but I didn't notice anything from it. I haven't taken any creatine in a few weeks or more and was wanting to try it again. I know some people have better luck with different forms, I was wondering if there was one made that contains all the forms of it in one, and if not should I just stick with creatine monohydrate and would I have to do another loading week, and what's the least amount of days a week I would need to take it after loading?

    You do not need to "load" creatine. Just take 3-5 grams a day, and you need to use creatine longer than a few weeks.

    As indicated, no need to load. It is a complete waste as your body will piss out anything in excess of 5G or so.

    In addition, I think it is important to realize that Creatine is not like a legal steroid. It won't give you "shocking" results. The boost the creatine provide is very minimal, but it is significant for those of us really looking to give an edge in stamina and strength. Yes, your muscles will retain more water, and in turn they will look more pronounced, but it is not going to turn you into a cover model over night. It will aid in strength gains over time. You likely benefited from your first run without even realizing it. Of course, if you aren't working out properly for strength and size, you likely will not notice anything. If you know what you're doing, it gives a great edge.

    Personally, I only use monohydrate. I have used Purple K and I did in fact like the results but the price isn't worth it in my opinion. There is so much research out there for monohydrate. It works and it's dirt cheap. To my knowledge (and I could be wrong) there is no research that exists that shows any other form being superior in terms of results. Some forms are more soluble (CEE) and some are more easily digested (HCl) but I don't believe they provide any other advantage than plain monohydrate.

    How did you "load" it and how long did you take it for?

    I used it for over 6 months, I haven't been taking it for a couple months now. Any suggestions on what creatine to get this time?

    I took 20 grams a day for a week because that's what I was told to do before I knew anything else about it, and after that I took 5-10 grams a day for anywhere from 6 to 10 months, I don't remember how long exactly. I wanted to try it again now that I'm on a real program and I'm eating enough.

    Just do Monohydrate. It is the form with the most research backing up it's results. Mono is the tried, tested and true from of Creatine. Doesn't matter what company it comes from, long as it is 100% pure mono. Again though, don't expect crazy gains brother. Creatine isn't as crazy a product as some people think. You probably got results from your first run that you just didn't notice.

    You have said NOTHING in your posts that indicates that you did not respond to mono, so there is no reason to change the type of creatine.

    All forms of creatine will pretty much yield the same results. Our product CellTech is a creatine blend with some extra carbs. Beast Creature is another blended product. It doesn't have the extra carbs though.
