    5g of creatine

    I asked this on the supplement board but I'll ask it here as well so I can get your opinions as well.

    I am currently taking an effervescent creatine that includes 5g of creatine and 5g of glutamine with every serving(1 scoop). The can recommends taking only 1 serving a day. The serving only contains 1g of sugar.

    My question, is taking only 5 g of creatine a day enough to get good results from creatine. I will be taking it everday before I lift without cycling.

    how much do you weight? over 190.. id bump it to 10 grams.. under 5 is fine.. but you need more glutamine than 5 a day.

    I weigh 205. I also take multivitamins, glucosamine, BCAA's, protein shake, and I am taking 10g of glutamine as well in addition to the 5g that's in the creatine (15g of glutamine total)

    because you can only absorb so much.. and taking it for an extended period of time like 3 months.. 1 week of loading doesnt make a differance.. also saves on the creatine
