Wondering when is the best time to take creatine. Right before workout? when you wake up? during a meal? right after you workout?

I usually take mine before and after workouts. I really don't think it would make much difference when you took the shit because timing is not that critical. Just make sure you get your daily dose.

actually, timing is critical... you want to take it post-workout with carbs to get maximal insulin response. Insulin helps to transport creatine to the muscle. Also blood flow is greatly increased during exercise therefore that may aid in creatine reaching the muscle as well.

Thanks a lot guys. I appreciate the help, I've been taking the Prolab Creatine before and after workouts for about a month now and I can already see a difference. Thanks for the help.
