Highest priced creatine ever!
Small bottle and overpriced. I don't understand why this product was 16$ a couple months ago and now it's 20$ GNC must have attached some commission because the product hasn't changed at all!

bitter beer face!!!!
I have just started taking this product in the last couple weeks so ill have to keep you posted on how this stuff works.I will say that the 1st thing that jumps out at me ( literally slapped me in the face) was that 1st drink. It was like BAMM!!! and i have to say that my teeth were stripped of any protection coating that they may have On the positive side all of it dissolved into the water super fast and my pump is good so far. I know they say Creatine is creatine so we will se if its worth the price, and the taste.....BAAAAAAAAAAAM!!

Before or after work out?
A shopper on Mar 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: After. Post workout your body has used its glycinogen stores and is more receptive to chemicals entering the muscle tissue. Take your creatine with some fast digesting protein (whey isolate or hydrolyzed whey).
How big is the scoop?
A shopper on Mar 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The scoop is NOT "roughly a tablespoon", as per Bradley C -- The scoop is 5 cc, which is just over 1 US teaspoon (there are 3 teaspoons in a tablespoon)
Can you mix this with a protein powder?
A shopper on Oct 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. You can. Should you? No!!! It tastes extremely sour and unless you want a super sour chocolate concoction then do not listen to me. If you do take my advice, Just get unflavored creatine powder instead and mix it into protein powder.

Is this healthy for teenagers to use?
A shopper on Dec 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Before using any supplements you should ask your primary care doctor about the supplements you intend to use. Depending on the age of the teen. I wouldn't recommend it for any under the age of 16. This product has to be used responsibly.
What is the best thing to mix this with? Like water, protein mix, lemonade, what at least makes the taste bearable?
A shopper on Aug 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I just mix mine in with my pre-work out drink (I use Beyond Raw Lit) and I can't even taste it.
