Hello everyone. I haven’t taken creatine in many years untill now. I started with Optimum Nutrition’s plain Creatine Monohydrate about 10 days ago at a 5g per day dose. So, two days ago I really start to feel the effects of the creatine; good in that I felt really strong in my Monday workout; bad in that I started getting constipated.
My diet is pretty good and I eat lots veggies, salads getting at least 40 grams of fiber per day and I’ve been staying nice a regular for a while now. I understand that creatine draws water away from your digestive tract and into your muscles. It seems that when I drink more water I just pee more and it doesn’t help the constipation.
Is there another form of creatine that might be better for me such as liquid or a purer brand? Can I just take the creatine post workout three days per week for maintenance?
