Default Which creatine, what dosing?

After years lifting, I still have yet to ever actually use Creatine, however with it being so cheap and my energy levels being so **** low, I thought it necessary to grab some. I prefer purchase from true nutrition because of their prices and my continued satisfaction with them over the years if nothing else. I'd like suggestions on which product I might want to get and the loading regimen if I'm doing pills or powder.


This is the selection I'm looking at currently:

Your selection didn't come up for me, but I always order the creatine monohydrate powder from them.

Hmm, I edited my post but it undid everything I put in there.


I was just looking at the true nutrition search page for creatine, as they have several 'options' though I guess only one plain creatine that I care to have. I am considering grabbing this though to mix with protein for my PWO, and get some plain creatine monohydrate for my otherwise daily use.

I think later today I'll make an order of a few things. The PWO WMS/creatine/BCAA mix, some straight out creatine, and glutamine.

Pure creatine monohidrate is the best supplementation if you aks me. I recommend taking 5g to 10g of creatine monohydrate, half before and half after your workout. Creatine monohydrate is the least expensive form of the supplement and is 90 percent absorbable. I increased my strength and muscle mass due to increased exercise intensity; this is facilitated by the Creatine supplementation. Increased muscle mass and strength are unlikely to occur with out an increase in training intensity. However, some research has started to show a protein synthesising effect of Creatine supplementation in vitro.
