Does Creatine Go Bad?

I prepare a bottle of diluted juice and five scoops of Biotest creatine and keep it in the refrigerator. I drink a fifth of the bottle each day. Is the creatine still the same come the fifth day?

I think it turns into creatitine or something if you mix it and leave it for a few hours… so I don’t think thats a good idea

yeah, from what I’ve read that’s a very bad idea. Just put some in your post workout protein shake and pre workout too if you want.

creatine is supposed to be consumed 5-10 minutes after being mixed.
