zenny saidWait so you have to take creatine on op of your daily protein? I'm confuse ...please enlighten me.
Creatine has an entirely different purpose than protein. So yes, you can take one with the other, and it even makes sense to do so. You can gain muscle without creatine, but not without protein. You can exercise longer and stronger with creatine, and you'll look more buff quicker.
As A1EX said, your body will filter out a lot of creatine - but not all of it. For that reason, there are different formulas and strategies for counteracting that effect. Purple K or Pro K will give you the results you want without being filtered out by your kidneys before it gets a chance to do what you expect.
A lot of people mention bloating from creatine. I have never in my life seen that occur. It helps your muscles hold more water - but get this - THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO! That should not be confused with bloating. Apparently some people do get gut-rot from having strong doses of it. I would just split up the dose through the day then. Your body naturally makes a certain amount of creatine itself, and you get a small dose of it every time you eat red meat. It is certainly not harmful as long as you don't take so much it irrates your stomach or over-taxes your kidney and liver function.
Of all the supplements I have used, Creatine is one of the few that you notice the results quick enough to know it isn't placebo.
