    So i just recently had to move and i havent pulled all the shit out of my car in a couple of days. I realized last night that I still have my creatine and multivitamins in the car that has been exposed to hot ass weather (with black leather). Will this make the shit rancid/give me the squirts/not work as effectively?

    I can imagine something like fish oil going bad due to extreme heat but I'm not sure about creatine or multivitamins. Also, are the expiration dates significant in these products? I have had that creatine and multivitamin for approximately 6 months and have hardly touched them.

    Thanks in advance

    Obviously fish oil and hot weather are not a good mix, so you're probably screwed on that one but I'm not sure if creatine etc would be a problem. I looked at the label on my creatine tub and it simply said, 'keep in a dry, cool place' but didn't refer to specific temperatures. So take that for what it's worth (which isn't much).

    Since I'm rolling to Iraq in a few weeks, I started questioning my diet and supplement routine for the deployment.

    I was wondering about how well stuff like protein, beta alanine, creatine, and greens powders kept in hot temperatures. Artificial sweeteners are also a concern.

    A buddy was lecturing me on aspartame in hot weather turning into something toxic but google is giving me a mess of crappy information that doesn't seem relevant.

    If anyone has seen a pertinent article on that one way or another I'd appreciate a link.
