RE: new creatine
To be honest, the Gaspari SizeOn cannot be compared to anything you'd be able to get in bulk, imo.
For one it's a blend of multiple creatines, other nutrients, and uptake agents, for 2...although I've always been a creatine mono non-responder, the Gaspari stuff blew me away. I first used it after being a big fan of Cellmass, and for me it was a better product.
If you're not shocked by how good it is - I know this sounds silly cos I sell it so I'm bound to have a bias - but honestly, if you're not blown away by how good a creatine it is, I'd be really surprised.
They're not well known over here, but check the US boards.....reviews...all that sort of stuff, and you'll see it's a top, top product.
