    Well, depends on what form you are looking at

    if you search pubmed for creatine citrate, you get 5 resutls that have nothing to do with creatine.

    All the current research uses creatine monohydrate, not liquid creatine, not citrate, not the latest and greatest bollocks.

    You dont need sugar, you dont need loading

    Once the cellular levels have been maximised (and creatine transporter production gone down) you aint goin to get any better no matter what.

    You don't need any references. It's common sense.

    Creatine is absorbed into the body at the gut. Whether this happens quickly or slowly, it doesn't matter. It doesn't even matter if less of the creatine you ingest is absorbed. Why? Because the effects of creatine occur only AFTER the creatine has been taken into muscle cells.

    The rate of uptake is proportional to the amount already in the cell. It has nothing to do with how fast it gets from your glass to your blood.

    BTW, liquid creatine is a scam.
