When taking creatine is it ok to put in your shakes after you lift, or should you mix it into seperate water/juice etc…?
I know this has most likely been done to death, but if you don’t want take the 30 seconds out of your life to answer my question then why take 30 seconds to chastise me for not using the search function.
Its best when taken with simple carbs and protein post-workout. The simple carbs causing an insulin spike in your blood. Increasing a cells uptake. Better absorption of all protein,carbs, creatine, and other nutrients. If worried about gritty tastes. Use micronized creatine, dissolves completely. In my opinion, it’s the best creatine out there. Avoid drinking it with water. Doing so might cause diarrhea. I hoped I helped you a little
thank you for this cornucopia of knowledge you have bestowed upon me. No really though thank you very helpful information. The post workout shake has pretty much no sugars…What would be a good simple carb to have pw?
Pop tarts, Cookies, gatorade, carb powders any of those are good. Carb intake p-w should be twice that of protein intake. So if you’re taking in 50g protein. Your carb intake should be 100g.
Um…pop tarts? cookies? gatorade?? NO!!! unless your on mega T, you shouldnt eat that kind of crap in your diet. Use waxy-maze as your post workout carbohydrate. Good luck!![/quote]
I though waxy maize had a rather depressing insulin raising ability, I know it has a rather low GI (When compared with dextrose). Does it raise insulin by other means?
