    Best Brand of Creatine?

    Hey, I'm in the market for some creatine and I was wondering if you guys had any ideas for which product to buy. Also I was wondering if someone could tell me what is best to mix with the creatine.

    any brand will work....its like buying champainge you want a 100$ bottle or the 15$ bottle ...the difference is the quality...but it will alll give you the same effect...just different intensity...

    Look for creatine monohydrate with creapure on it. You don't need overly expensive creatine powders that claim to shuttle the creatine better to your muscles.

    If you want an insulin spike just buy some dextrose or corn sugar. The extra costs that companies put on for such creatines is a rip off.

    www.atlargenutrition.com sells creapure stuff. Good price too. Their nitrean protein is supposed to taste awesome too, and has a good nutrition profile.

    ALN is a good company. The nitrean would be in my house now if it wasn't for the shipping fees. Its a protein blend IE Whey, egg and casien much better then just Whey for general health and fitness.

    Xyience is way to over priced and over hyped. Their Nox-CG is no exception.

    Any product that boasts of its 'NO2/Nitrous Oxide' benefits is over-hyped and always over priced

    and CG3 sounds like a reference to creatine ethyl ester...one of those spendy creatine's that hasn't been proven to be any better than the good old monohydrate we know and love.

    ...Ok i had to look up Xyience NOX-CG3 - wow...what a bunch of marketing crap. they used CEE, buffered creatine, and creatine malate!
    NONE OF THESE HAS BEEN RESEARCHED AND PROVEN TO BE ANY BETTER THAN CREATINE MONOHYDRATE.
    and 400g of the stuff is more than twice the price of 500g of monohydrate from AtLarge!!

    Whatever you people are smoking, I want some, because it must be good **** if it convinces you to pay these kinds of prices.

    but it costs almost 3x as much.
    and it's unproven to be more effective than monohydrate

    AND...they claim 1g of kre-alkalyn equals 10g of monohydrate. Yet their serving size is 1.5g, 2x a day...so, 30g equivalent of monohydrate is needed for Kre-alkalyn to be effective?

    *cough cough* scam! *cough* rip-off! *cough cough*

    Actually, i have kre-alkalyn also and it says to take 1-2 pills twice a day. So really you only need 2 a day, which is supposed to be about 15 grams a day. BUT if you buy the 240 pill bottle it's only around $30, and should last you around 120 days. So really, it's not a rip off. It's lasted me way longer than the prolab creatine i used to have, and they were the same price.

    500g of creapure processed Creatine Monohydrate should run $15. 5g a day, that's 100days. So about 60% cheaper than Kre-alkalyn.
