    Orange creatine?

    Hey all, just wondering, if your not supposed to drink creatine with orange juice because the acid in it etc defeats the creatines benefits, how does orange flavoured creatine work? surely it would effect the creatine aswell?

    Kind of like Tang. Not really OJ.

    When I took creatine by itself, I just mixed it in with my protein shake or shot it straight (on the tongue chased by apple juice). I take Jack3d now with has creatine (among other things). Also a yummy watermelon flavor.

    Some people just mix it with straight dextrose. All you're after is a sugar to help raise the insulin levels. But honestly I don't think I've seen any concrete evidence that you HAVE to do this.

    I think it's less about it preventing creatine from working and more about preventing an upset stomach. OJ without food is very acidic.

    That said, I have a glass everyday after my workout.
