Why no Creatine in Cowbell?

Why didn't we put Creatine in Cowbell?  

We wanted to.  But Creatine doesn't work in a solution.  After you put creatine in a solution, it starts to break down into Creatinine a less bioavailable and less effective form.  

We went with BetaTOR HMB instead.  HMB is renowned for its ability to boost muscle protein synthesis, is also effective in reducing muscle protein breakdown, especially during periods of intense physical activity, it also helps in other areas that creatine does not.   

Here is the data:

Creatine is a naturally occurring compound that plays a crucial role in the production of energy during high-intensity, short-duration activities, such as weightlifting or sprinting. It is commonly used as a supplement to enhance athletic performance.

Regarding the stability of creatine in solution, it is generally recommended to consume creatine monohydrate, the most researched and common form of creatine, shortly after it's dissolved in liquid. Once creatine is mixed with water or another liquid, it may start to break down into creatinine, a less bioavailable and less effective form.

While specific studies on the exact duration of creatine stability in solution may vary, it is generally suggested to consume the solution within a short period, such as 15-30 minutes, to maximize its effectiveness. Storing the solution in a cool environment may help slow down the breakdown process..
