0311 could you enlighten me as to why you think creatine is not good with Milk?
Milk has only 12-15 grams of sugar depending on whether it's whole or reduced fat. Milk also takes longer to digest than juice would. Going off of that train of thought, it's accepted that creatine isn't stable in liquid for extended periods of time due to it's low ph. We also know that regular creatine needs a transport module. Optimally it's sugar/dextrose because sugar can also cause an insulin spike to provide further utilization of the creatine. Alot of companies are putting like 2 grams in with their weight gainer shakes to sucker in some people who are like, "Wow, it also has creatine in it what a bargain." (mass-tech) What the hell is 2 grams of creatine mono going to do?
Personally, I'd rather put it in grape juice or something that has alot of dextrose. I tried putting it in my weightgainer shake for over a month and didn't get the same effect as when I put it in a cup of juice.
Dr.X, I know you have years and years of knowledge than me, so why do you think this way of thinking is flawed?
