Amount of Water With Creatine?

Can 1 scoop of creatine be mixed with more than 1 cup of water and still give you the full effect or will it become diluted?

Creatine’s effects are not ‘diluted’ when added to water.
When taking creatine, try and add a good 16-32ozs of extra fluids over and above previous fluid intake.

In addition, never pre-mix your creatine more than a few hours before you drink it. Creatine degrades and will turn into something slightly toxic after a couple of hours. Similarly, never buy any ‘liquid’ creatine supplements.
