The key things to consider is the amount of creatine you are taking (this should be based off of your body weight) and being consistent with taking the supplement.

There is a myth that creatine is a steriod, when in actual fact it is found naturally in the body. Supplementing creatine allows your body to get the optimal amount of creatine to aid you with sports performance.

Creatine is a naturally occurring compound that plays a vital role in energy production in the body. When supplemented, it increases the creatine stores in muscles, leading to several benefits. These include enhanced strength and power, increased muscle mass, improved exercise performance, and faster recovery. Creatine helps generate ATP quickly, providing readily available energy for high-intensity activities. It promotes muscle protein synthesis, cell volume, and water retention, resulting in greater strength and fuller-looking muscles. It also aids in reducing muscle damage and inflammation, facilitating faster recovery.

The amount needed all depends on your weight and if you are starting out, you may want to load creatine. If you are under 55kg aim for 3g of creatine, and if above this aim for 4-5g.

Some people choose to load creatine in the first few weeks of taking the supplement, this it to shorten the amount of time it takes to get the benefits. This approach isn't needed for the average gym goer as you'll get the benefits within a month of consistently taking creatine. Some people who load creatine experience bloating which can be avoided by taking 3-5g of creatine per day.

One of the big differences is convienence and taste. Many people who use the powder will know the pain of creatine not desolving in water properly, leaving them with a chalky drink. 

Equally, most people who weigh more than 50kg should be having more than 3g of creatine yet most supplements give you a 3g scoop. 

Ultimately, the choice between creatine gummies and creatine powders comes down to personal preference and convenience. Both forms can be effective in providing the benefits of creatine supplementation, such as increased strength and power output during high-intensity exercise. Creatine requires you to take the supplement on daily basis, so you may as well enjoy it! 

You can take creatine gummies whenever is convenient for yourself. The main thing to consider is consistency and ensuring you are drinking enough water for the gummies to be effective.
