    How much dextrose in powdered Gatorade?

    I tried asking this twice so far but have gotten no help so I'm going to try one more time. I want to mix creatine in gatorade powder for the dextrose in the powder. Now I know people out there do it so just help me out here. How much gatorade powder do I use for 5g of creatine?

    Dextrose is used by many supplement companies in products containing creatine becauase it is believed that ingesting creatine alongside it creates an 'insulin-spike' which aids ingestion and transportation of the creatine to the muscles. 'IF' this is the case, then you wouldn't need very much at all to generate the 'spike' just mix enough gatorade so that the creatine mixes in with it without it all sticking to the sides.

    Supplements are by no means a perfect science, there's hardly ever a perfect way to do anything. The majority of studies you see are usually concerning some scientist based in a mountain hut in northern siberia, who might have noticed a sizeable increase in the size of his goat herd when feeding them carbohydrate and creatine.

    P.s. yes i'm sure you can get creatine in siberia.

    I try for a half gallon of gatorade (BUY THE POWDER) w/ 5g Creatine and 5-7g glutamine during my workout. That way I get plenty of carbs.

    I'm pretty sure that the dextrose to full sugar ratio is gatorade isn't as high as a bodybuilder would like for post workout. Whenever I have questions about a product, I usually just call the 800 number on the side of the bottle. The people at the company can pretty much look up any info that you might need.

    I have a can of the Fruit Punch flavor in front of me now. The serving size is 1/4 scoop [which makes 8oz], it has 60 calories, 15g of carbs, 14 grams of sugar. I normally use 1/2 scoop, i.e., twice that amount. I don't think more than that is necessary, but there is no research done that has determined the right amount.

    Aren't you not supposed to take Creatine and glutamine at the same time as they compete for absorption?

    Yeah I got the fruit punch as well but it doesn't say how much sugar. Just protein, fat, carbs sodium and potassium. It says to mix 1 scoop with 2 cups of water. So I figure that should be good enough for 2 servings of creatine.

    2 cups of water = 2 cups of gatorade
    1 cup of water = 8 oz
    5g of creatine in 8 oz of water. (now gatorade)

    Just not sure if that'd be enough.
