Best type of Creatine?

6th September 2007

Question: I’m out of creatine and I want to try something new any suggestions? Just looking for personal favorites here. I was using SizeOn and SuperPump. They are both ridiculously expensive i’m looking for something thats somewhat cheap.

Answer 1: The kind that comes in Steak.

Answer 2: Super pump 250 is not creatine. Its an NO booster. Try Now Foods creatine. Good brand, cheap. Or Optimum Nutrition. Also stay away from the NO boosters, they do pretty much nothing.

Answer 3: I liked Cell Tech when I was taking it.

Answer 4: I take any Creatine Ethyl Ester.

Answer 5: Plain old Creatine Monohydrate. Anything “added in” is a waste of your money. You don’t need vitamins in your creatine.. you don’t need special this or special that… and you don’t need a “loading phase” your first week or so. Plain old Creatine Monohydrate.

Answer 6: No explode has creatine and NO which all help you. I was on it over the summer and my bench went up 90 pounds in a lil more then a month. But idk what you want to do. Get toned or gain weight because it makes a huge difference. What do you want to do? btw im on super pump and size on right now and nitrotech hardcore and i love all of them….Nitrotech hardcore is really good for gaining weight

Answer 7: Cell Mass. Yes, it’s true, you can buy the cheap, plain creatine, add juice and you’re good. But, if you have the $, Cell Mass is probably the best out right now. It works. Take it twice a day – on an empty stomach…once right after training.

Answer 8: Stick to plain old creatine monohydrate. Everything else is overpriced and a waste of money. Can’t really stress enough how pointless the other products are, they do they same thing as regular monohydrate (when taken right) for literally 3 to 4 to 5 times the price.

    Although I am not very strong or very big, I took creatine Monohydrate for about 2 weeks, and in the first week and a half I gained around 5-6 lbs. I’m not sure it does this every time or if it was just me. I also noticed I got significantly stronger in those 2 weeks. I’ve never used any other types of creatine, but I’m recommending just plain Creatine Monohydrate just because it worked so well for me. I stopped taking it for about 5 months, and I just started again today. I’m hoping it will give me an extra 5-6 lbs again, but who knows. Good luck buddy.

    all these products are ok but the best solution to acheiving your goals is…wrk hard and push yourself. you will hit plateaus but push through them month in month out and you will see a difference. PS chicken is a mint way of adding size – so eat lots.

    You can aswell just buy plain old Creatine Monohydrate, and buy some Dextrose, put around 30-50g of dextrose and 30-50g of protein along with monohydrate and you got yourself a Cell-Mass. Cell-Mass is just rich in sugars and all kinds of other products you can buy for less money but get alot more value and you can aswell have control of how much you put in your shake. Just buy glutamine, bcaa’s, creatine mono, whey protein, dextrose sugar and you should be fine.. 🙂
