    Probably the likely culprit.

    Newer creatines don't require loading or cycling. They can help with recovery and a bit during, but do not expect miracles. They do NOT build muscle in and of themselves. Nothing harmful about them though.

    As decu68 eluded to, there are natural ways to get creatine. For instance, red meats contain it (go figure). Just understand that unless you're eating a few pounds of it raw, you won't get much. Your body is capable of creating it's own.

    Creatine conversations always get interesting. You have those that swear by them. And those that swear at them. I'm of the "I don't care what you do" mindset. Just read and read some more to make a choice you're comfortable with.

    Cool

    I personally have purchased micronized creatine monohydrate from ON Nutrition, the Musclepharm creatine, and Con-Cret.
    I have to say that Con-Cret has been the most effective. I felt it from the very first dose and I gained so much muscle fullness. The Musclepharm creatine sucks-- there's no other way to put it, I went through two tubs and didn't see or feel much.
    The ON Nutrition one is also great, my intensity increased but I'd get bad bloating and diarrhea.

    All in all, Con-Cret is definitely the best. Sure it's pricey, but you get what you pay for. Quality is never cheap!
    The next one on my list to try is Creature from Beast Nutrition! I've heard good things about it!

Plus many creatines have loading phases where you use more; good way for you to go through your container fast and have to buy another.
    Do you have a link to the scientific studies demonstrating this effect? Even if it were true, which I highly doubt, it is most likely just a transient phenomenon like you mentioned.

    I don't take any sort of creatines besides the 3g of it that's in my GNC Amplified Mass XXX protein. Creatine is fake, It swells you up, once you quit taking it, everything that you gained you lose.

    If you take creatine for the "size" it gives you, you're going to be disappointed like you said. That said, it has been proven to help with recovery and muscle fatigue.

    Not saying that those expensive designer creatines are the way to go. Plain creatine monohydrate is cheap and provides the same benefits.

    That might clear up some stuff for you ehuerta. It all comes down to what you like and what you think works best for your body type, workout regimen, and eating habits. Everyones body is different, so different supplements work with one's body that isn't very efficient with another's body.

    I used to buy from GNC but since I found BB.com I haven't left since. They always have great deals. I was on CellMass in Iraq and didn't see much results from it and just stuck to my NOexplod and Syntha6. Kre-Alkalyn comes in the pills doesn't it? I'd rather take the pills than drink anymore stuff. Makes me feel bloated all day

    I started with a generic creatine/monohydrate from Pilgrims ($20 for 60 day supply after loading) and had great gains for about a year - then nothing happened after that. I've tried cycling it every six months but still no significant gains. It might be an age thing but pretty disappointed. It was awesome in the beginning!!
