  • Question About Supps

    Hey guys, I apologize in advance if this question comes off as a dumb one, but I was wondering if leaving supplements for a certain amount of time in water affects it in any way, shape or form. For example, I work out early in the morning, so I normally prepare my preworkout mix (5g TN Creatine, 4g TN Beta, 4g TN Malate and 200mg caffeine) the night prior in a 1.5L bottle of water so I can just grab it in the morning as I leave. Will it lose any value? Also any advice/tips on my preworkout mix are appreciated. Is there anything to add or take away? Dosages, anything... Thanks again.

    I'm hoping one of the resident scientists can validate this but I have read that at room temperature and a low pH (3.6) it would take about 8 hours for creatine to degrade just 1% into creatinine (byproduct) and even longer time at a higher pH.

    I have also read the creatinine is what tends to cause the creatine bloat some people experience. If this is true, and you are not getting bloated or having any GI issues from your pre-workout mix then it is not likely being converted to creatinine at any significant level.

    Again, these are just things I've read in passing, so I'm hoping someone who has the scientific background can provide some validation...

      Does it really take that long to mix it in the morning (2 min. tops)? Maybe mix it in a baggie and pour it into your water in the morning on your way out the door.

          They even have a little plastic gizmo what looks like a shaker lid. The large opening screws off and you can mix your powders, then when your read to mix it with water you unscrew the top part, put that on top of an open bottled water or other container and it pours out. Here are some things I found:

          There are several others out there, but this is what I could find quickly.

            Why not just put the powder In a shaker bottle the night before. When your walking out the door just run it under the sink and fill it up. As ur driving shake it and drink?

                  Ding ding ding ding ding!!!! AND, we have a winner!!! lol. Really, is it that hard? I preload ALL my shakes for the day in my shaker cups in the morning. Doing a little experiment with Humapro at the moment, but with my pro/oat shakes, I would throw it in there, put on the lid, crack the top so it doesn't get musty, and you're done....

                      I load all of mine in those small Tupperware containers; for some reason it really bugs me to put liquid on top of the powder. I have to add my water first. I'm weird that way.
                      You're perfect, yes it's true. But without me...you're only you.

                        You're just a weirdo. But sometimes the powder is a bit hard to get into the water by pouring the water on top...I just turn it upside down and tap the bottle....I think it tastes the same....lol

                            To me, it just mixes better, when you put the water in first.
