I'm telling you Vitargo CGL is the shit. I was on NOXPLode for while and decided to try something new. This shit is the bomb. In the past 1 1/2 weeks. I've already put on 3 pounds of mass, and my Bench has gone up 15 pounds.

I'm telling you it's the shit and it tastes great

That stuff looks good, I just read up on it, only problem is it looks really expensive. 36 dollars for 20 servings taking it 12 times a week.

Now I never ever take medicine or anything just a multivitamin occassionally so I need to know does that mean I take about 4 pills, 4 times a day?...so I would be taking like 16 capsules a day? Cuz that seems like a lot...or does it mean I take a TOTAL of about 4-6 capsules for the whole day while splitting them up between 4 times in the day?

Basically I am asking for the loading phase do I take 16-24 capsules a day or do I take 4-6 capsules a day while splitting them up throughout the day?

+Rep to the first person to answer me.
You have to take 4-6 pills, 4 times a day. So 16-24 pills total.
It would be more worthwhile for you to buy it in powder form. Also a lot of the suggested servings are way off for stuff like that. Basically when you're loading you want to take about 25mg's total per day, and when you're done loading you take about half that.

If you load it you'll run throught the bottle in 2 weeks

Use in the morning upon waking on an empty stomach on non workout days

then after your workout on workout days.

For the results you get, it's worth the money

I don't know how big your pills are. Currently I'm on my off cycle and don't have any to compare.

Looking in a book it says take 20g if your <190, 30g if your >220 and 25 if your between. Do that for two weeks then switch to 5g. With lots of water

Well unfortunately I can't find out how many grams each pill is. It doesn't say anywhere. I only weigh 126 so I figure instead of 4-6 @ 4 times/day I should take 2-4 @ 4 times a day, and when it's 3-6 @ once or twice/day I do 1-3 once or twice/day...do you guys think that would suffice. And also do you really think it's a good idea to take creatine on an empty stomach?

Next time I get some I will get the powder. This shit was just cheap and I just wanna try it out before I start spending more than $20 every cycle.

What would you mix that with? That sounds good but I've never made a creatine shake and I always have chocolate for my protein. I always wondered what you mix fruity flavors with.

Usually Creatine Shakes are fruity flavors, so it's always best to mix it with Water. Not only will it taste better but it's good to have a high water intake when you take a creatine product because Creatine draws waterinto muscle cells.

Usually Protein drinks are bold flavors like Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Coffee and can be mixed with either water or milk but Milk makes it taste a whole lot better.

Also some Creatine Powders that are meant to be miced with water tatse horrible so some peole just dump a scoop in their mouth and wash it down with water.

For White Flood, I mix 1 1/2 scoops in a shaker bottle wit 16-20oz of water.

As always make sure when you are using creatine you drink at least a gallon of water a day. If you don't drink enough water, no matter what creatine product your taking, it will do nothing.

Secondly make sure you get a Liver Support Supplement or Milk Thistle to take.

Also I don't know if you've already made purchase but,

-the best Creatine Pill bar none is Gaspari Nutrition SizeOn
-The best Pre Workout Drink IMO, is White Flood
- The best Creatine Recovery Shake is Vitargo CGL
