When taking creatine is it better to take it with dextrose or Maltodextrin or both? Also how many grams? I was thinking of 25g each.
When loading for 4-5 days do should I be taking it with dextrose or Malto everytime. If so thats an awful lot of sugar.February 26, 2008 at 8:18 am #6207
take it with grape juice. I assume you are using Mono. To be totally honest you really don’t need to load. If you are doing an 8 week cycle you will be saturated soon enough.February 26, 2008 at 9:18 am #6208
Anything less than 100g does little to help uptake of creatine.
In studies the only way they could get a significant result with less glucose was to subsitute 50g of carbs with 50g protein.
Moral? One of the best times to take creatine is with a protein and carb postworkout shake.
At other times whatever floats your boat.
