Default Creatine FAQ

Section 1. General Information

1.1: What is creatine?

Creatine (also known as alpha-methylguanidinoacetic acid) is perhaps the most popular supplement for improving athletic performance and increasing muscle mass. It also has more scientific support for its use than any other non-hor

Hmmm, either way i dont think it would hurt to take your CEE at the same time as your omega3's.

As I re-read that I got a little confused. So this is saying that to initially pass into the blood monohydrate needs a glucose carrier, then to permeate the cell it needs a fat carrier. Is this correct?

I'm not sure but I think the CEE would be absorbed way before the Omega 3's would anyway.

No, I think this is the difference between active transport and passive permeability. Something that is "fat loving" like CEE supposedly is, is more able to permeate the cell wall without being transported by a carrier. Regular Creatine Mono is supposedly more "fat phobic" making it unable to pass through the lipid barrier without those cells first being potentiated by insulin to reseive glucose, with the creatine being carried along.

I don't know exactly what type of transport mechanism CEE uses but it is not supposed to need a carrier of any kind and can supposedly "directly penetrate the cell" whatever that entail. We'd need a biology person to explain it.

I know this is all probably way oversimpified but I think that's it in a nutshell.
