creatine: veg or non-veg?

#1 Postby Rom » Wed Aug 18, 2010 5:25 am

Hey all,

searched on forum, but strangely enough didn't find the answer (maybe becoz the answer is too simple?)
I think I understood most creatine-supplements come from animal source, right?
Are there any good vegetarian alternatives?

big thx!

My brother took it and once I took it from him before a ballet class. Imagine cocaine, speed and caffeine all at once. I never had a better class. It cannot be that good for you. I was out of control and my teacher told me to stop chewing the insides of my mouth

:lol: :lol: :lol:

BAHAHAHA

I've taken creatine with caffeine (apparently you're not supposed to but whatever) and although I felt more energetic, it didn't feel like I couldn't sit still or anything. My heart didn't race. I didn't sweat, and I didn't feel like I was going to die.

That guy is just a wuss.

Some is vegan, some is made of animal sinews and other things like that.
I think crealkaline is synthetic.
