    why dextrose?

    Why dextrose? Is it mainly to help creatine absorb into the body because of the insulin spike? Also I have acess to a med called glucagon, it is used on people with low bloodsugar, it helps the liver metabolize the stored glycogen to raise the persons bloodsugar. Can this be used to assist in dieting? To assist a person into keto sooner?

    its main job is to spike insulin levels but not directly related to creatine absorbtion. More for shuttling all nutrients into you muscles in post. Not just for creatine bro!!

    Glucagon is a hormone your body uses to signal that you have low blood sugars. It tells the body to break down stored glycogen into glucose. This can cause a large increase in blood sugar levels, especially if you are using it supplementally. IMO I can't think of a reason to use it...
