    No, I don't mean as a general recommendation. I mean, if you want to see the effect with your own body, this is a way to do it.

    It takes approx 30 day for tissue levels from creatine supps returns to base line so the off time might should be longer than 30 days. 60 days probably makes more sense. Unless you load, it takes approx 30 days to reach tissue saturation, so 30/30 may not be the optimal schedule to test if it's working for people.

    That is a long read, but informative.

    So per the article, 5-10g/day of creatine should be sufficient for supplementation with off the shelf creatine?

    I've been taking whey 30-60g/day with weight lifting and cardio but seem to hit a plateau.

    If by off the shelf you mean CM sourced from CreaPure than yes. Other forms, no, non CreaPure, no.

    Is there a Creatine that is better to take than others?

    No. Regular old creatine monohydrate is what you want. The other variations are just more expensive and less scientifically proven than good old CM.

    Agreed, see #14, but not all CM is created equal. See also:
