View Full Version : Creatine Absorption rate

How quickly is creatine actually absorbed? I ask because I know several people who take it in either water or a protein shake before training, but I can't imagine it actually gets integrated into the muscle cells fast enough to be effective for that training session.

The creatine you take today is will help your efforts tomorrow and the next day. It does take some time for the creatine to be integrated into the cell...not sure on exact timeframe however.
