Default Water retention due to creatine - where does it go?

Hi all,

I've read numerous times that creatine users can count on retaining some water while on creatine. Where is this water retained, in muscle tissue or in fat cells?

Also, does anyone know how long it would take to lose the water once one stops consuming creatine?

Creatine increases intra muscle water retention. It takes about a month for creatine levels to return to base line after cessasion of supplemantation assuming it was used lomg enough to achieve saturation.
