Good For Recovery
Really good for muscle recovery. I to, like many others, noticed that the pill would go out the same as it went in. So I now take a knife and pill off the outer coating and take the pills with a Gatorade, which seems to make the pills dissolve faster than water. Just a suggestion but it works really good for me.

The label and one of the earlier answers says that timing doesn't matter. I tend to take AMP Creatine around 7 am, but typically work out at 10 pm. Does a 15 hour time gap matter or does timing really not matter at all?

I am confused about the amount of creatine in this product, it says 2 pills are 1250mg of creatine but the description on the site and box say 5g of creatine per serving (which is 2 pills)? How is this possible, or do you need to take 8 pills to get to 5g?
