Simple question will just placing the powder in my mouth and swishing it down with a little water have any effect on how fast/how well the protein absorbs into my body? Should protein ideally be mixed with a liquid say milk, juice. I'm currently trying to cut some dairy out of my diet due to possible allergy reasons and just eating the raw protein powder is convenient but will the lack of mixing effect anything significantly? Stupid question I know just curious.

The same applies to creatine.

How in the heck is your creatine crunchy? That's probably a good sign to stop using it. o_0 What brand is it?

Yeah it does but i just get tired of mixing and I enjoy doing it better that way than mixing it with water uhhhhh. I just like getting it done in as quick a manner possible. Just as long as it doesn't delay or decrease the effects of the protein shake.

No prob. I take mine with either milk or water depending on how quickly I want the protein absorbed.

Put powder under your tongue then take big gulps of water. You won't gag at all if you do it that way.

Protein powders don't taste like their actual flavour if taken in as a powder. I tried it before thinking chocolate powder would taste like choc. wrong move! it was disgusting. so water or milk for me :thumbup:

I was under the impression that milk was bad for post workout protein shakes because the fat slows the absorbtion of the protein?

2 scoops with 10oz of water

Is dextrose good to use on a cut?

Nitrean mixes great with Water... 1 scoop to 8-12 ozs.. tastes just like choc milk..
And ALN's Creatine goes down with a mouthful of water or Gatorade... np..

Scarz, when you recommend dextrose...I assume you are speaking of a dextrose/water solution?

I mean, I put water in the cup, I add a scoop of Nitrean, put the lid on, and shake it like a dead baby.

open lid, slam it.
