theres alot of different methods.. ideally you want some carbs as well to help shuttle the creatine to your muscles and spare the whey.

Most of your supplements from GNC for Creatine have delivery systems that are designed to get the creatine into your blood stream as quickly as possible.

ie. the premixed things like cell tech. if you get a monohydrate powder, mix it with gatorade, or some type of juice.

"Some newer research on creatine indicates that combining creatine with protein and carbohydrates is as effective for stimulating creatine uptake and retention in the muscle tissue as taking creatine with carbohydrates alone. Stimulating insulin release has been shown to enhance the transport and uptake of creatine into the muscle tissue where it is used to support the reproduction of ATP (energy) and enhance cell volume as well as possibly buffer lactic acid. The study entitled "Protein and carbohydrate-induced augmentation of whole body creatine retention in humans" was published in the September 2000 issue of the Journal of Applied Physiology (1) and showed that consuming 50 grams of protein and 47 grams of carbohydrates with creatine was equally as effective in terms of creatine absorption and retention as consuming 96 grams of carbohydrates alone with creatine. So the creatine, protein, and carbohydrate combination actually makes for a great post workout drink mix to enhance recovery and help prevent muscle breakdown secondary to weight training."

Whey drinks low carb protein have been around for a long time. A major problem is associated with carbohydrates proteins and fats. Protein was a big muscle, but everything else is not accompanied by large institutions. Beverages such as muscle Advance revolutionized protein powder for muscle building and other aspects of our protein intake.
