RE:Men's Strength and Muscle Formula vs. Pure Creatine

I have been reading these forums on the Men's Strength and Muscle Formula. Many of the threads say to mix the Muscle Formula with juice but the directions on the bottle say to mix it with emoticonz of cold water. So I'm wondering if some of the posts are confusing Pure Creatine with the Men's Strength and Muscle Formula. How should the Men's Strength and Muscle Formula be taken and how should Pure Creatine be taken? And should the Men's Strength and Muscle Formula be taken for 6 weeks and go off for 4 weeks or does that apply only to Pure Creatine?

You are correct about the juice mistake. Follow the directions on the bottle. The sugars you need are already in the mix.

S&M formula is still creatine, though, so the cycling is a good idea, yes.

I just recently purchased the Men's Strength and Muscle Formula. I had purchased a container about 1-2 years ago and this was my second container. When I opened the second container that I just received I noticed that the scoop was bigger in this container than the one in my first container of Men's S&M. The scoop that came with my first container says 25cc in the bottom. The new scoop says 33cc in the bottom. The label on both containers says to take the same amount (16g) but the scoops are different sizes. Which scoop is the correct one?

I also noticed that the taste is not as Berry flavored or as sweet as my first container and I can't get the powder to completely disolve in emoticonz. of water. It has a strong sodium taste.

So:
Which scoop is the correct one?
Is my product defective altogether?
Have you changed the flavoring/recipe?

Thanks,
Tom

It sounds to me like you got pure creatine the second time. Was the container different?

No, the containers were the exact same. I even took pictures with them side by side. I too thought that maybe, somehow, the wrong formula got into the Men's S&M container. Customer Service is shipping me another bottle. I hope it is the right product in the right container.

hmmm, I noticed as well alot of the things you mentioned about your second container. Although this was my first time getting it so I assumed all was well.

My biggest concern was the product not dissolving in water. Is this a problem?

Yes, I couldn't get all of it to dissolve in water like my first container of Men's S&M would. I hope they haven't changed the formula or changed where they get the base powders to make the mix for the Men's formula. I called Cust. Service and they are sending me a replacement container. I hope it tastes like my first container and will dissolve better in water.

Make sure to let us know what happens with that second container. If it's still an issue, we'll try to sort it out.

I just received my replacement container and it tastes much better. More like my very first container. It still won't dissolve completely but it does dissolve better that the original second container I just ordered. The scoop is still the bigger scoop. It's not the same size as my first container's scoop. I have a food scale and the scoop itself weighs about 5g. When the scoop is full it weighs about 34g. Subtract the 5g for the scoop and that is 29g of powder. The label still says 1 scoop (16g). I will keep my original scoop and use it. I hope someone in quality control finds the scoop discrepancy. So besides the wrong scoop for the recommended amount of Men's S&M and the issue with not completely dissolving in water, the replacement container tastes fine.

You don't actually need to cycle off creatine, and certainly not every three weeks for two full weeks.
