    what brand is this? post a site or something?


    Creatine WILL break down in a solution eventually. (I've read 6-8 hours.)
    The only benefit I can see from warmer water is that the solution that you take in will be pre-heated and saves a few minutes from your body needing to heat it to body temperature.

    creatine will become creatinine. if you know your chemistry, it does this by "homoreacting" (react with itself, forming a ring). The ring in this case is called a lactam. Hotter water makes solution acidic. Lactam formations (ie creatinine formation) are acid catalyzed.

    Alright...now all this sounds impressive and scary but it isn't that bad. The thing is...just drink it asap. Its acidic in the stomach anyway. My point is warm water makes a negligible difference.

    hey i am currently taking organic chemistry now, **** i sometimes forget my general chem terms, what is ment by a ring, i keep thinking ring is cyclo molecule???

    it is just the molecules that form around the carbon right???

    sorry very incompetent question but i really need help have a test in 2 weeks.

    Use the effervecent creatine, it is easier for your body to absorb.

    yes, ring = cyclic molecule

    So FingerMoon? are you telling me you are huge?

    "creatine will become creatinine."
    If left in an aqueous solution. In a powder form it is stable.

    Effervescent creatine may or may not have better absorption rates, (can't remember, gotta go look later on) but I think the extra price isn't worth it for me.

    I think that "Hot" on a label , without a Temerature or Tem Range is pretty foul . I wouldnt think that Creatine could survive in too much over 150F Im with PD tho , taking it at about 100F would be Ideal for absorbtion .
