Power Drive and Creatine?

First question. Has anyone used Power Drive and if so what do you think of it?

Also I’ve heard that some supplements counteract each other. Here’s my dilema. I prefer to take 5 grams of creatine before my workout. If I take my 5 grams of creatine with Powerdrive will they counteract each other?

Thanks,
Seeves

There is nothing in Power Drive that would interact with creatine. The only thing that would inhibit creatine uptake would be caffeine, and possibly by taking it with a high fat meal. Simple sugars and sodium will help shuttle the creatine into the muscles. It is recommended to take creatine after working out, as the exercise would up-regulate glucose transporters on muscle cells. This coupled with the recommended post workout drink/meal that is high in simple cabrs and fast-acting protein (such as whey) will provide enhanced creatine uptake post workout.
