Creatine HCL From TPW™

Creatine HCL from The Protein Works™ is considered by experts to be the most soluble, most bioavailable and most absorbent creatine in sports nutrition today. Used by experienced strength athletes and elite athletes looking to increase muscle size, Creatine HCL is becoming increasingly popular due to its ultra pure and concentrated nature. This exceptional purity means you need a much smaller dose to see a noticeable difference in strength gains. Plus, the high biological availability of Creatine HCL means it does'nt require a ‘loading phase’ like other creatines. You can therefore practically start seeing benefits from day one of supplementation.


Creatine HCL Benefits

The unique muscle building properties of Creatine HCL are largely due to the way it is manufactured. It is made into a type of salt by attaching a hydrochloride group to the creatine molecule. This in turn increases and improves the creatine molecules solubility and enhances the way in which the creatine is absorbed and can then favourably alter the molecular energy of the muscles. This improved absorption also means you don’t get any unwanted side effects such as bloating, cramps or frequent urination that people may experience with other creatines.

Also although Creatine HCL is mainly used by experienced strength athletes to increase strength, speed and power, it’s also becoming increasingly used in bodybuilding and elite sport too. This is because Creatine HCL is so absorbent it doesn’t require an ‘up-take’ agent in the form of a simple carbohydrate to help shuttle it to the muscles. Instead it can be taken solely on its own meaning you don’t have to worry about taking a carbohydrate high in sugar, since this could make the body more prone to storing fat. Creatine HCL is therefore considered the very best creatine for those wanting to only build quality lean muscle, with no unwanted fat.

The Expert's View of CREATINE HCL

"It was found at the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Connecticut that creatine supplementation "increases acute weightlifting performance and training volume, which may allow for greater overload and adaptations to training." Put more simply this means creatine supplementation was found to increase the strength, speed and size of the muscles. Researchers concluded "in summary, the predominance of research indicates that creatine supplementation represents a safe, effective, and legal method to enhance muscle size and strength responses to resistance training."

Q. When should I us Creatine HCL?

A. It depends on your lifestyle and goals, we recommend following the suggested serving guidelines.

Q. What are main reasons for using Creatine HCL?

A. To help increase muscle strength, size and power. But specifically people use Creatine HCL since it’s considered the most absorbent and biologically available of all the creatines on the market.

Q. Can Creatine HCL help with endurance?

A. Whilst Creatine HCL is predominantly used by experienced strength athletes, there are some recent studies showing it can help enhance recovery too.

Q. Is all Creatine HCL the same no matter what brand you use?

A. As with so many things in life, if you don't ask the right questions, you won't get the right answers! The quality of ingredient can vary significantly and therefore the potency will do too. In addition, just because a product may be called pure it doesn't mean that it necessarily is. We recommend you read the ingredients and nutritionals on the label to better understand exactly what you are buying. We can assure you that our products are 100% pure. At TPW™, we are committed to transparency and openness in all our products and that is why we provide a 'Product Profile' which gives a complete overview of the product's background including our approval, location of manufacture and money back guarantee applicability.

Q. How can I tell if the Creatine HCL I buy is good quality?

A. Look for the Certificate of Analysis which will give you the assurance that what you are buying is what it says it is.

Q. Can I use Creatine HCL with other supplements?

A. Yes absolutely. Whilst Creatine HCL will increase the molecular energy of the muscles and therefore your strength in the gym, a good protein post workout like Recovery Protein would help the muscles repair and regrow afterwards. Studies also show creatine goes very well with Beta Alanine to improve the intensity and duration of your training and iBCAA’s to enhance recovery and muscle size.

Q. What if any side effects will I get from taking Creatine HCL?

A. We haven't heard of any nasty side effects from taking Creatine HCL. Also because it’s so efficiently absorbed and use by the body, Creatine HCL is actually used since it has no side effects like other creatines such as bloating or cramping.

Q. What effects should I expect from taking Creatine HCL alongside my training regime?

A. It helps increase muscle size and strength.

Q. Who should take / benefit from using Creatine HCL?

A. Bodybuilders and strength athletes. Those new to weight training. People involved in team sports. Those who participate in regular intense training and exercise.

Q. Can I take Creatine HCL when preparing for a bodybuilding competition?

A. Yes, Creatine HCL is the preferred choice for bodybuilders preparing for a competition since it doesn’t require a high glycemic index carbohydrate to act as an ‘up-take’ agent which means your body isn’t prone to storing fat because it’s consuming a ‘sugary’ carbohydrate.

Awesome product
My referral code is RL81117 for free protein
Creatine HCL has been one of the best forms I have tried due to how fast it kicks in and provides strength gains, it does this without the bloating which I have had in the past from using regular creatine monohydrate.

I also like the fact that you only have to use 1.5 grams compared to the 5 of regular creatine.

This does have a strong taste and is quite unpleasant like the ethyl ester version but is easily eliminated by mixing it with some squash or fruit juice.

5/5 a top quality fast acting creatine powder that requires no loading phase and does not provide you with any water retention, I also feel this version provides slightly better pumps and strength gains than other versions and will continue to use along with Creapure which is another awesome creatine product.

I've had the same experience as most of the other reviews. This is a great product and absolute steal for the price; especially when on offer!

The taste however, is absolutely terrible! I tend to mix into a pre/post wo shake so that the other ingredients mask the taste as best as possible. Would recommend despite this.
Tastes bad and as mentioned on other reviews, is best to use in small amount of liquid and neck it. Does what it says on the tin, delivery prompt, price good. very happy.
Have read a lot about the advantages of this over monohydrate so it seemed like an obvious choice. Good news? It fully dissolves and has given me no digestive discomfort.

Bad bit? It's the most disgusting thing I've ever tasted. My advice? Dissolve it in as little fluid as possible. Try and down it in one or two gulps, then wash down with orange juice. There's no point prolonging the agony!

Aside from that I'm getting fantastic pumps at the gym compared to my non-creatine performance levels.

I'm still giving this 5 stars. It may taste funky, but it is what it says it is, and it works.
Mix this with beta alanine & Orange Squash as a pre workout drink and it works great. Seen PBs in all areas since using!
My first serving gave me incredible stomach stabbing pains and a quick trip to the loo
Day 2, stomach still torn to bits and hurting, nearly passed out in personal training session
Day 3 feel a bit better, pain only when eat
Day 4 pain gone, max bench press increased by 5kg
Day 5 no more stomach pain and stable belly

So it seems as if it's working, just have to get through that initial pain barrier. Not had this problem with creatine Hcl before... Time will tell though

(I was using suggested serving (1/2 scoop) so not overdosing)
mixes perfectly easy. has a slight bitter taste but easily drinkable in orange squash !! would buy again !
It works great, I just keep lifting heavier. Don't mix it with a shake though. It gives it a funny tangy taste
Nice Chrystal's great mixability, not fully unflavoured bit of an acquired taste but when I mix with my chocolate silk whey 80 it's a great taste. Works well definitely gaining strength, just as good if better than my mono hydrate
I have been using creatine mono up till now and the loading/maintenance is a bit of a pain. I have to say this product is far better in everyway. People have complained about the tast, I have found if mixed well with 175-200ml of fresh orange juice you cannot taste it. Another great product by TPW
I make my own pre workout with this , add bcaa , arginine and beta alanine.
Been smashing my training since taking this , 100% seen an increase in my strength, brilliant product, cannot fault it in anyway, worth paying a little more for a key sup I use all the time
This stuff is the dogs, seen impressive results really quickly since using this . Not the best when you put in with protein so I take on its own in a fruit drink, but you cannot argue with the results you will get from using it .
The best type of creatine available , seen a massive difference since switching over to this type, no more mono from now on , sticking to the good stuff !!
Does have sour taste to it, but i'm not taking this for pleasure. I mix mine in with some blackcurrant squash and goes down without any problems. have seen some quick results from taking this form of creatine , having previously tried creapure. For me it is about results so will stick with this as seems to be the most pure form tpw offer
Now this is one seriously good product. Only been taking to for a week and i have seen my strength increase already, maybe it is just me being on form at the minute or this stuff really working for me , either way i'm getting some good results quickly .
Very effective product, Always used creatine mono in the past, spoke to one of the guys on the phone and they suggested I give it a try. It isn't a product you can mix in with your normal shake as does have a distractive taste,, but mixed in some orange and goes down fine . Can really feel and see the difference since I have been using this product. Creatine is generally cheap enough so worth spending that bit extra for the purest form in my opinion. Will continue to use this type of creatine now for my training
Aside from a slightly funny after taste this creatine mixes very well with juice/water effortlessly. No horrible scum around the bottom of your glass from all of the creatine that hasn't dissolved, great product!
With all the different creatines available I wasn't sure which to opt for , spoke to an advisor and they suggested this product as they used it themselves, so could vouch for the quality and results. No loading phase needed , defiantly seeing improvement in my strength and general recovery , going to stick with it , if you could do a flavoured version would be good
Always got on well with taking creapure, and have done so for years , so decided to give this a bash after reading up on it. Getting good strength gains already, and do feel it is working , it does have a slight sour edge to it, but mixed in with some cordial it is actually nice as quite sharp, which first thing in the morning gets rid of your fury mouth !
who can argue with 6p per serving?
One of the best creatines I've taken doesn't taste too gritty and also don't get the bloated feeling that I get from other creatines . Great product !
so iv taken creatine monohydrate for a while, but based on the description I thought id give HCL a go. In terms of performance I cant see much difference although not having a loading stage is a bonus. My big concern is the taste with monohydrate i just used to stick the serving in my mouth with a teaspoon and swill down with water to get it over and done with. HCL taste like pure salt with some sourness thrown in meaning you have to dilute it with quite a bit of liquid to get over the taste. for some that might not be an issue but for others it might be.
another quality product from tpw fantastic!!!
no loading phase and no stomach craps athough tauste is not great.

I have used all the creatines out there.creapure used to be my favorite but when the protein works introduced creatine HCL i love trying new things so gave it a go.and it is excellent.especially stacked with tpw beta alanine pre n post training , a truly amazing strength combo for anyone wanting to up their overall lean mass.
Tried this for first time today and felt good in the gym
Mixed with my pre workout protein and couldn't taste it
Plus no loading phase is a complete bonus
