    Creatine Monohydrate vs. Creatine Ethyl Ester

    Differences among the two.

    Do you use either? If so which one?

    Has it improved your workouts? strength? size? etc.

    Just beware of the CEE if you have a weak stomach. That stuff will WRECK you, if you do.

    Luckily, I eat nails and lightbulbs for breakfast...so I'm ok with it.

    Hey Biggzy;

    The difference between the two is that the CEE is a monohydrate but with an ethyl ester molecule attached which supposedly has a better absorption rate.

    I've used C-Mono before and not responded too well.

    I presently use VNS-Jacked which is a combination of CEE and a Nitric Complex and find the CEE combination works better for me.

    Yes, it has improved my workouts not only in strength and size but, also in energy and endurance.

    Peace

    Hmm. thanks for the info jram. So basically C-mono is not really worth it?

    PrincePaul: LOL, nails and lightbulbs are high in protein.

    Is ethyl ester more expensive?
    In another thread, someone mentioned no loading. is that true? Because I always had a problem with loading Monohydrate, and by that i mean I never did.

    Edit- I just read the article on BB.com
    I think the next time I bulk I may try this.

    or will it be just as good while cutting??

    What brand would you suggest.
    There is a really cheap one on BB.com, 500 grams, for 19.99 + shipping
    But I've never ordered anything offline, and am not sure about it...

    I just use the basic bulk kind on BN, so I'm sure the quality of the bb.com and bn.com ones aren't that different. However, I think BN's prices are better, even with the sale that bb's having.

    I'd go with BN

    How do you guys take it? According to the directions on the label?
    2 grams 3 times a day or what?

    Edit- Well Ive read a lot about it now, and I'm definently going to get it at some point.
    I'm cutting right now, so I may wait until early 2006. But it sounds great from everyone
    But it supposedly tastes like the most horrible thing ever, but I can get past that.

    Would you suggest it on a cut? despite added water?

    Like I said, I would recommend it, even on a cut. Also, I would advise taking it by taking a scoop and pouring it on your mouth and then washing it down with some fruit juice. It's that bad. You simply can't mix it with anything to make it acceptable.

    Stop being such a pussy. It isn't that bad. I mix BN's CEE with dextrose and water. It isn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Sure, you give off the wonderful bitter face after taking it but it isn't that bad. Just chug it down and you'll only taste it at the end. I mix mine with probably 4 ounces of water and a tablespoon or two of dextrose.

    Edit: and if you do get fruit juice, make sure citric acid isn't listed on the ingredients as citric acid combats the advantages of CEE.

    i just started using CE2 by MRI (same people who make NO2) kinda pricy, 60$ for a bottle of 180 caps. Been using it for a week now and have seen minor differences, will let you know how it goes.
