    transporting w/sugar






    I know creatine must be drank with glucose, but since i ran out of glucose would it be ok to just use white sugar as a form of transportation

    I can't answer that question because I don't generally follow the insulin spike or creatine usage.

    What I do want to say is that I know many people use Dextrose. If you don't get dextrose then buy Smarties candies (not the Candian smarties but the US Smarties) they are pure Dextrose and would make a great sugar treat

    You call them rockets?

    Makes me think of Cartman on South Park: "Red Rocket!"

    You can go to Bulk Barn and buy pure maltodextrin (for .50 a pound) if you're worried about sugar transport systems...don't bother with white sugar, it is refined and crappy.
    Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.

    you can if you really want to eat suger, but like HAN pointed out creatine does not need to be eaten with anything sweet in order to get in your system. All the dextrose does is shuttles it into muscles right away. That's it. Suger will take a bit longer, but will still do the trick

    i wouldnt use sugar personally, it will not convert to glucose as quick as dextrose or maltodextrin,, does not mean you have to go buy a barrel of dextrose, but like jodi said you can buy a pack of smarties or sweet tarts on your way to the gym for a buck and thatll be a weeks worth of post workout insulin spiking
    6 - Packs are made in the kitchen , at least mine was

    how many sweet tarts would suffice to cause an effective insulin spike? right now im using gatorade powder, but i think sweet tarts would be more convenient for the times that im in a hurry

    Sweet tarts? I have no idea what their made of.

    I would stick with the smarties unless you know for sure that sweet tarts are dextrose.
