    The only brand of creatine I use is Legion because I feel comfortable knowing its not full of a million artificial ingredients. I like how well it reduces soreness. No matter how much I lift or train; especially on leg day. +its not just pure creatine its a mix, naturally sweetened and has no proprietary blends. Its a good addition to my stack.

    i used PFX3 by pharma fuel - no issues with water weight/retention, awesome pump, better endurance and continually breaking my PRs

    The studies show that women tend to be more non-responders than males do. Just get a basic creatine monohydrate. It's not something you take and notice immediate results, it takes weeks for you to notice any additional benefits if any.

    I use plain creative monohydrate. I find it helps with muscle soreness.

    Thanks for the input. I take supplements with BCAA's and beta-alanine but i've always avoided anything with creatine added thinking it would just add to water retention without any significant performance benefits.
