ok so do you need carbs to absorb creatine properly or not?Nevage wrote:It was to do with the amount absorbed as creatine isn't always absorbed well but I don't think it's worth having 20 servings a day about it, it would make little difference if any in performance but pretty interesting for elite athletes maybe.
I would say no. Although carbs would cause a spike in insulin causing you to be in an absorbative state, I don't think it would cause a significant increase in creatine absorption. If your main priority is to minimise carbs I don't think it would be neccessary. If you're worried about creatine absorption just have more of it, it's dirt cheap. I have it after training with dextrose or just plain whey if I'm cutting.
