    For those guys who don't already have creatine, glutamine, or alpha lipoic acid, that Smart Gainer looks like a friendly buy.

    Bulk Nutrition is impeccable. Hell, Sudo, they publish 3rd party lab results on the same page as every one of their products.

    3rd party testing is a practice in which I do believe in.

    I don't know if creatine with a malic acid attachment is better than monohydrate.
    I assume it's decent.

    Tricreatine malate is formed from creatine monohydrate and malic acid. As far as I know all this does is combine three creatine molecules and glue them with the malic acid.

    As for its efficacy, I couldn't say, as far as I know all studies with creatine are still just plain monohydrate studies. Scientists could care less what sells.

    But I did find this at a website selling creatine that actually very well annotated with its claims:
    In principle it sounds good. At least I can't think of a reason why the malic acid bond would inhibit the effectiveness of the monohydrate molecules themselves.

    I'm going to have to give that Smart Gainer stuff a try. I've been searching for the best stuff for me, price-wise as well as contant, and it seems to have a lot of the stuff that I use in one package for a pretty decent price. Thanks for pointing me to it.
