I know what's in NO-Shotgun, I have jug in my room. Its creatine forms are nothing to get excited about, lots of companies are creating their own creatine forms nowadays. Its still not a creatine product however, its pre-workout product. It designed mainly for that purpose although it does have creatine as well. Its called Nitric Oxide-Shotgun for a reason. Why does gatorade do that? If your talking creatine mono then any juice type beverage except ones with a lot of Acid, OJ for example, is thought to help the uptake of it. With other forms its not needed. If you know how creatine works you know that it NEEDS water. Drink it with w/e you want but you need water. Daily not just for this. But creatine works by pulling water into the muscle, etc. Without taking in enough water, you won't be getting the full effects.
Whatever....I wasnt tryin to get into a debate or anything just answering the OP......I know there are stimulants but my point is it containes the creatine I use as well......
gatorade delivers it with electrolytes I also drink about a gallon and a half of water a day so the gatorade changes things up, but also delivers the creatine to your muscle.....
My body gets plenty of water...
