    Coke and Creatine?

    What's up all? Just a quick question....

    I have just started back on creatine. For lack of a better means of taking my 5 grams after my workout, I threw it down with a Coke and a bannana followed by a protein shake. I know grape juice or dextrose is usually the way to go, but I didn't have any at the moment. IMO, (and as a hardgainer) simple sugar is simple sugar. Would I have been better off putting it in my shake, and just eating the bannana? Thanks...

    Peace

    Either or it wouldnt matter. It' still would be absored at the same rate with either method.

    Hell the way soda...especially Coke dissolves evrything.....(school experiment with egg and other with nail)....it probably wasn't the best idea. Just leave the coke out and mix it with your shake and banana.

    Ive read that coke (with all its caffeine) actually negates the effects of creatine if you dont have any grapefruit juice i just put it on my tongue and knock it back with water. Try to get some juice soon so as most of the creatine can be utilized...........HITMAN

    I'd never use normal or diet coke with creatine post wo or in normaql way intaking. What about something that pulls down the ph of ur stomach? maybe something like citrosodine (it's even effervescent so....save money and u have something like the effervescent kind of creatine).
    let's try and tell me some news
