Conclusion:

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.

If you would like to purchase online, you can go to Vitamin Shoppe or Amazon.com. If you have a Vitamin Shoppe close by, you can run in the store and purchase it there as well.

Disclaimer: Supplements are made to help supplement your lifestyle. If you do not have a decent diet and workout routine already in place, this is not going to be a miracle muscle growth formula. This product is intended to give you more endurance in the gym and increased strength.

  1. Heavy weights build more msclue mass. A basic rule of thumb for beginning weight lifters is if you can’t lift or press it at least 10 times on your own it’s too heavy to lift without a spotter. Drink protein drinks or take supplements. Ask your local GNC about other tips. Eat Lean meats (Eggs are great! Chicken, low sodium tuna, fish, and lean beef), 1 carb, and 1 veggie every meal. Try eating 4 meals a day instead of 3. Drink a glass of whole milk and eat a PB J sandwich an hour before bedtime. Get at least 8 hrs of sleep a day. A mid day nap will help msclues rest during training days. It’s funny I was the same height and weight at 16. I’m now 235 at 5’10 . Almost as soon as I turned 18-19 I started putting the weight on fast. You probably have a high metabolism which will slow down after puberty. Hope this helps. OH yeah most of all Don’t give up.’

    1. You know, I never did understand why Creatine was the only one without a scoop… I know it is cheap and all but I’d pay an extra 10 cents for a scoop lol
