How much creatine?
Just wondering if you got a better way to use creatine than the standard shit on the boxes!
I have a cheap creatine (99,9% creatin monohydrate or something), on the box it says:
loading (day1-5): 12,5g twice a day
after that: 2,5g twice a day
Are these good dosages... cause I doubt that!
Do u guys know any other way to use it?
I am about 190lbs/90kg, how much should I take?
I am not on AS.

Loading is a scam. They want you to use more, and thus buy more. There are lots of posts in this forum regarding this question.

I thought it was a question of efficiency?

OK! thanx folks!
Another question... is it smart to mix creatine with proteinshakes with milk?
I do after workout... mix both creatine and protein and add some milk.... is it bad?

Well for creatine intake I take Muscle Marketing USA creatine serum.
its in a liquid form when u buy it, u take 5ml 10 mins before a workout. The back of the bottle says:
no loading just take minutes before exercise
no maitenance, only take on workout days
completely assimulated into the muscles in minutes
100% stable and 2 year shelf life
does not cause water retension, bloating, or cramping.
stay with normal water intake.
I personally love this stuff. It definatley helps me put out the extra couple reps and give me a good pump. Nothin like AS but great for a supp. it provides 25g of creatine per serving, also provides; ginsing, glucosamine, L glutamine, L taunne, L carnitine, magnesium, zinc, calcium, vitamin B 12, glycerine. Also the stuff come in many flavors and tastes great. I sound like a sales rep but it really is good. I got mine at esupps.com for like 25$. I usually go through 1 bottle in about 1 1/2 - 2 months. Good luck and hope u try it.

i have heard the worst reviews on serum creatine from t mag.the owner of a store that sold it said even though i know the stuff is garbage and overpriced i am still forced to sell it as a lot of ppl ask for it(that is due to a large marketing hype) and its expensive as well but if the dough its not a problem for you go ahead and give it a try.one more thing you got to make the creatine work copy the cell tech formula by adding some carbs and aminos and you got yourse3lf a very good creatine thats cheap as well.think man be creative.

I've used almost every kind of creatine, including serum. I noticed results with all of it, except serum. Since then I've never read one good review of serum.

haha serum is such a scam.....EXCESS are you sure that loading is a scam.... I have loaded and not loaded creatine and I have noticed quicker results when loading it

There's no purpose in loading with creatine. You just piss it all out anyway if you load so it is a waste of money.
