    My worry is that this 'homeopathic' creatine, because it is harmless, will give MM an edge with the FDA, despite false claims. Alarmists love this type of shit.

    shit, all they have to do is hire a biochemist who is worth his/her salt to tell them that creatine degrades to creatinine in aqueous solution over time. Many compounds do this...hell water is a pretty good nucleophile...people just don't understand how reactive water can actually be. Now if they said they stabalized it in a nonpolar solution...that may be different...however most non-polar solvents (I.E. Ether, dichloromethane) aren't exactly things you'd want to drink.

    I was under the impression that such a study has already been done and it was found to have less than 5 grams of creatine in the whole bottle. Was thinking Almamada did the study.

    Yea, I heard the same thing...in fact I've heard of several tests by indepenent labs that found it only had 15% of the label creatine claim...but I haven't found them yet...perhaps this would be an interesting topic to search.

    Peace
