    Question Green MAGnitude timing, and advantages?

    I'm due to receive some Purple Wraath and White Flood (which I am very much looking forward to!). Being curious I also opted for a sample of Green MAGnitude. And I'm a bit confused about the timing recommended to take GM, on the 'stacking info' page it says to take it pre-workout? On my current creatine (monohydrate) I have been advised to take post-workout? What is Controlled Labs philosophy behind this and what are the pro's/con's of either timing that you know of?

    The second half of my question is about Green MAGnitude specifically. What are the major advantages of the product over "pure" creatine monohydrate? The main reason I ask is because I get a 1.2kg tub of creatine monohydrate for 15 and 800g of GM costs 35. Which when calculated per 100g comes out at 1.25/4.37 respectively. I also take a B-Vit supplement (B6, B12, folic acid ... etc) when I take creatine for better synthasis. What would I get from GM that I'm not getting currently?

    corect, green mag is preworkout as it is much more than just creatine, so it will assist with the workout itself

    the taurine, betaine, tyrosine will all help with performance for the workout

    Loading isn't needed, your muscles will get saturated soon enough. But if you want you can, it really comes down to personal preference

    Just to add in to what the guys are saying...try mixing your serving of Green Mag with your serving of White Flood 30 mins prior to your workout; an effective, efficient, and tasty way to get them both down properly!
