Hey all...

Anyone find a good liquid to mix with Creatine 500? I've tried OJ, Gatorade, Milk, Nitrean w/water, plain water... and it doesn't seem to stay mixed. It just sinks to the bottom.

Or do most folks just put a spoonful in your mouth and follow-up with a drink...

The reason I ask.. is I'm trying to take 5 grams during my WO... after taking 5 grams 1st thing in the morning..

PS... Yes I did a search on Creatine 500 and didn't get a good hit:

I had this same question when i bought my creatine 500, and i'm gonna tell you what everyone else told me.... just put a spoonful in your mouth and down it with some powdered gatorade or some dex. And also why are you taking 5 grams in the morning and 5 grams during WO?

Thanks Will... I did read though your thread:

And I didn't get the exact answer I was looking for.. people were saying they were mixing it.. but I can't seem to mix it.. when I mix it with Gatorade, it just sinks to the bottom.. seems like i'm wasting it... unless I flush out the bottle several times with water.. big pain in the arse. Where as Nitrean is great, it stays mixed real well..

Why both times per day? Because there still seems to be a lot of confusing information out.. and to just experiment a little.
I've been though the site that a lot of folks recommend:

I bought 3 bottles of the stuff from ALN.. so I have enough to experiment a little. If the creatine stays in the system for 1-2 hours, then if I take it in the morning when I wake up along with Nitrean, and workout 2 hours later... and then adding a little more while working for the post benefits when the body needs it supposedly, I should be covering my bases.

I'll see how this goes for a month or so... and then try something else..
Like maybe just using it as a Post-Workout supplement..

exactly... I have found that all creatine monohydrate powders never mix into most liquids and settle to the bottom. Easiest way is to dump it in your mouth or use a juice with sugar in it like orange, grape juice etc.

just mix it really fast, continuously swirling it and chug it down.. or yeah put a scoop in your mouth and down it with juice.
just make sure if your doing that, that you get tons of water with it, because creatine will absorb in water. Very important to stay hydrated and take extra water with creatine.

i just mix it in my nitrean and water......just shake it and drink it...if it's still on the bottom...add more water and down it fast....although, i think the .02g of creatine on the bottom won't make too much of a difference
