    yeah GNC pro performance Creatine Monohydrate 2.5g chewable tablets.. I would think a good majority of it would get stuck in my teeth or something, but if Im drinking the necessary water it should flush it down and wouldn't matter either way?

    so basically creatine (monohydrate) is the same in all forms (except liquid duh) and its basically user preference?

    Creatine powder vs. pills are just the same thing. If you put it in a pill, however, the price goes up.

    Pure creatine actually has no taste though so it's easy to pour 5g and drink down in a cup of water.

    This really only has to do with user preference. We market both types for SizeON because some people prefer one or the other.

    so basically when I get home from the gym, I have to drink quite a bit of fluids.. 8oz of milk in my protein shake, then slam down another 8oz or so of creatine/water.. so should I lower the amount of water I drink while at the gym? I usually kill my water bottle 1.5 times.. it holds 24oz water.. I just dont want to get home and drink the rest of my stuff and end up pissing out most of it instead of absorbing it.

    thanks all for the input!

    I always wondered that though. Do you get more out of the power, because a pill has to be broken down by the liver and the powder is already in like a broken down form. Just faster rate of absorption from the powder maybe?

    I don't think the pill dissolves in the liver somehow. And they are both the same substance - chemically speaking it's not 'broken down' any more. There's a small delay while the capsule breaks down (put an empty capsule in your mouth. It doesn't take long!) - a marginal decrease in lag time for the absorbtion period, but somehow I don't think you're going to know it.

    The big difference IMO: pills are more convenient to carry around, however they carry a higher price tag per gram of substance (the premium of having it capped). And there you have it.
    I remember being relevant.

    I'm partial to a powder. I just like mixing that with other things whether it be pre workout, aminos, protein etc. There are a ton on the market but I've been using Cell Tech by MuscleTech. It's good stuff.

    If I was gonna buck up for creatine capsules I would probably go for the SNS MCC.. though powder is significantly cheaper per serving and creapure branded stuff can always be trusted

    Personally though.. I try to stick to pre-workouts with a full dose of creatine.. ErgoPump
