questions...

Been doing a lot of reading lately and have noticed MANY complaints with n.o xplode and stomach pains as well as headaches and such. Are all creatine supplements the same? I'm already taking ABB Extreme XXL I have been taking it for a while and absolutely love it. I'm thinking about ordering there crea-force it's just 5 grams of creatine monohydrate and i'll take that before my work out and continue taking the other after. Any one see any problems with this cycle?

I'll show your president the same respect you showed mine.

Results vary, but certain people get headaches with creatine. Creatine monohydrate does to me, but ethyl ester doesn't. It changes from person to person.

Now, xplode has creatine in it, but not very much. The upset stomache is generally from the amount of gas that it produces in the stomach from the separation of the NO.

You can find samples a lot of times at Vitamin Shoppe, but NO explod can irritate my stomach if I take it empty. I drop a cup of water about 3 minutes before taking it and I don't have issues.

I love the stuff, but yeah, I know some people who can't take it. Honestly, the only way YOU are going to know is if you try it personally.

There are some alternatives, but I think the NO xplode mix is perfect. Some others just plain don't work, some leave you wired for the entire day. I have been wanting to try out that Vapor stuff...

what's the difference between creatine monohydrate and ethyl ester?

The theory behind the ethel ester goes a little something like this....

Regular creatine mono does not readily penetrate the membranes, most of it just sits in your gut. And since creatine by nature draws water with it wherever it goes, you tend to become very bloated, and gassy. When creatine sits in the harsh PH environment in the gut, its turned into the useless and potentially toxic substance, creatinine.

Creatine ethyl esters have a chemical attachment of an ester to the creatine molecule allowing it to quickly and efficiently pass right through the lipid membranes of the gut and directly into the bloodstream for direct transport to your muscle cells. Before creatine can go from the bloodstream to the muscle cells, it must once again face the same type of lipid membranes that it encountered in the gut. This is why you absorb so little regular creatine.
only a tiny percentage of the regular old creatine you ingest makes it from your gut to your blood, and of that tiny portion, only a small percentage makes it from your blood to your muscle cells.

Because of the ability of creatine ethyl esters to pass through these lipid membranes so easily, your muscles quickly become full of strength enhancing, endurance increasing, cell-volumizing, anabolic creatine without the bloating.
