Default Creatine

Can creatine be taken with orange juice? I was told the other day not to take it with orange juice but on one could give me an exact answer as to why not.

It has been shown that taking creatine with some juice is more effective than taking creatine plain i.e. with just water. The reason is because; the sugar (glucose, fructose) that comes with the juice will create a sugar spike. This stimulates the release of insulin, which encourages the body tissues especially the muscles to gobble up the sugar. Insulin does the same for creatine as well and hence uptake of creatine into muscles is better and faster.

Orange juice some says it bad because its too acidic. Not every study agrees with this.

I remember reading years ago that grape juice was great for taking creatine

Use Concret and it's not an issue. Just get the flavored type and mix with water. Good stuff!
