Has anyone ever tried creatine chews? I have been using Optimum's creatine, but I hate the fact that it doesn't come with a scoop and I have to get a teaspoon to measure it out the 5g serving. It's just a pain in the ass. There are a couple brands that make chews, and that seems like a nice convenience factor. Has anyone tried them? Would there be any downsides?
Lol, that's pretty odd.
The only problem i would see with it overall is it being so convenient that people forget to hydrate properly.
When i did use creatine (hated how long it took to dissolve) i got pretty damn dehydrated if i didn't drink loads of water.
I gorged myself sick on the old Phosphagems when they came out in the late '90s. I was working at a GNC at the time and they were constantly tempting me from the shelf.
Chews will often have all sorts of extras you might not necessarily want. For example, one brand uses sugar alcohols, which can be problematic for some.
But I can't really wrap my head around how powdered creatine can be too much of an inconvenience. Even without a spoon, just sprinkle it into your workout shake and eyeball the amount.
