Creatine monohydrate is a tried and true and is the most studied supplement in the industry. Creatine is used for increased strength and muscle endurance, and also helps muscles recover.
Serving Size: 1 tablespoon
Ingredients: 5g Creatine Monohydrate
After doing research on creatine I decided to try my luck with them. I bought this bottle for $19.99 and overall I’m very happy with it. Much like other creatine monohydrates, it doesn’t seem to mix well with much that I tried, which is typical with creatine. Some pre-workouts and proteins contain creatine and sure enough most of the time that is why there is grit left behind. This creatine is flavorless and you can mix with anything, generally water or a non acidic juice such as grape juice is ideal. I personally just dump a tablespoon’s worth in my mouth, swish around some grape juice and swallow. It’s easy and painless to do.
The bottle did not come with a scoop, you must provide your own tablespoon. I suggest snagging your tablespoon measuring spoon or buy a set and stick it in there, it’s the easiest way to do that. Other than having to provide your own measuring utensil, there is no downside to this product.
Overall I give this product a 5/5. Creatine monohydrate is a tried and true supplement, and extremely cost effective. This gave me an increase in gym performance, endurance and recovery.
Some advice I have learned the hard way:
- If you do not drink enough water, you will get stomach aches and/or cramps.
- Taking on an empty stomach can also cause stomach aches.
- The amount you take is up to you, most people prefer 5g, some use 10g; if you are going to take 10g, take 5g and then take another 5g 3-4 hours later to avoid an upset stomach.
- Bloating seems to happen when I am not consistent with my intake of water; you need to be consistent in drinking at least a gallon of water a day, when you do not, your weight will fluctuate and you will start to bloat.
