    Kakaubos ko lang ng CellTech by Muscletech which is creatine sup.
    Ok nman sa recovery, pero sa gains wala nman masyado... (as the reviews said... kanya kanyang hiyang lang pag dating sa supplements)
    Flavor... Grapes... ayos ang lasa...
    Maybe subukan ko na lang sa susunod yung mas murang creatine brand...
    Any suggestion mga paps?

    For creatine to work you have to do the loading phase first or it takes a month to saturate your muscles if you just take maintenance.  You also need to drink more water as the creatine absorbs the water.  Like mentioned, the fancier brands simply try to make theirs different (so they can charge more), but it's really just creatine monohydrate that's needed.  So if you buy those fancy brands, you are buying overpriced grape juice powder as well.  

    Creatine's only real effect is to improve your recovery, but because of this people are simply able to lift more.  Now if your diet and rest is correct this allows you to build more muscle than without creatine.  And that's where the strength gains come from, so don't expect to get strength gains just because you've finished loading phase of the creatine.

    Another thing is that meat naturally contains creatine as well. So if your diet consists of a lot of meat to the point that your body is already saturated in creatine, taking creatine supplement won't do much.  It's vegetarians that gain most from taking creatine.

    when is the best time to take crea? pre or post workout? i'm taking it as directed by the label. any tip? thanks!

    You only need 5g period, no loading phase nessesary, and you need to eat a kilo of meat for your body to manufacture 1g of creatine.

    I personally have used creatine in the past. For me it doesn't help at all. In fact after I left using creatine, I used to felt dizzy for 3 months.
    Right now I am only on whey and still don't feel the need of creatine.
