Creatine 1000 from The Protein Works™
Creatine 1000 combines TPW™ premium grade and ultra pure creatine monohydrate in an easy-to-take pill format. Creatine monohydrate has been shown to help increase the size, strength and speed of muscles by improving their molecular energy. Backed by thousands of studies, creatine is one of most widely used strength supplements in sports nutrition today. What's more, Creatine 1000 ensures creatine supplementation is both convenient and accurate as the easy to swallow tablets can be taken anywhere and during any key nutrient window.
Creatine Monohydrate - High Intensity Training Energy Source
Creatine is found in natural food sources such as beef, salmon and tuna, but it only occurs in relatively small amounts. This is why sports scientists recommend supplementing with pure creatine to enhance the molecular energy of the muscles. This is especially beneficial when quick and explosive movements are required because creatine helps increase the speed, strength and force with which the muscles can contract. It does this by favourably altering the body's natural ATP stores (Adenosine Triphosphate). Furthermore, Creatine 1000 has also been shown to force more liquid into your muscles which in turn makes them feel and appear larger and more firm, whilst at the same time improving their functionality through effective cell hydration.
Creatine Monohydrate - Delay the Onset of Fatigue
Creatine 1000 has also been found to help delay the onset of fatigue by improving the rate of recovery of the muscles and increasing the maximal time they can work at their optimal effort for. This is why many strength athletes will use creatine because it allows them to take less rest between sets and also work with greater weights and more volume during training. Also sprinters and those involved in fast paced team sports will use creatine to help them sustain a maximal sprint for longer before they fatigue.
Scientifically Proven Through Research
Creatine is one of the most widely researched sports nutrition ingredients and the following benefits have been scientifically proven through independent research and officially approved by the European Food and Safety Authority:

Q. When should I use creatine monohydrate?
A. It depends on your lifestyle and goals, we recommend following our recommended usage guidelines.
Q. What is creatine?
A. Creatine is a compound made naturally by the body which is used as the primary form of energy for the muscles.
Q. Can I get creatine form natural whole foods?
A. Yes, many foods naturally contain creatine, such as tuna, salmon and beef. However, the creatine content in these foods is considered below the dosage recommended in studies that would bring about an improved performance such as an increase in strength. Therefore experts recommend using a creatine monohydrate supplement as the only effective way of getting enough creatine into your diet to then enhance Adenosine Triphosphate production in the muscles.
Q. I have heard that you need to drink lots of water when taking creatine monohydrate?
A. When taking creatine monohydrate, try to consume as much water as possible. If you are not correctly hydrated, then creatine monohydrate will not be properly absorbed, resulting in poor results.
Q. What are the main reasons for using creatine monohydrate?
A. To help increase lean muscle mass, improve athletic performance during high intensity training and improve energy levels and recovery times.
Q. Is it essential that I have a "Loading Phase" when supplementing with creatine monohydrate?
A. Some studies have shown that if you do choose to load, then it helps you reach muscle creatine saturation point much quicker than if you didn't go through loading phase. However, others would argue you don't need to do this and results can be achieved without it. Therefore we recommend you trial both and see which supplement protocol your body responds to best.
Q. Will I gain weight from using creatine monohydrate?
No .Creatine has a ZERO calorific value.
Q. Are there any health benefits associated with taking creatine monohydrate?
A. Creatine has direct antioxidant properties and neuroprotective effects.
Q. Are all creatine monohydrate products 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.
Q. Can I use creatine monohydrate with other supplements?
A. Yes, it is fine to take creatine alongside other supplements. It has been recommended to maximise the uptake of creatine to the muscle cells that it is taken with a simple sugar like dextrose. It has also been suggested that if you take creatine monohydrate, then to limit your intake of caffeine where possible.
Q. What if any side effects will I get from taking creatine monohydrate?
A. We haven't heard of any nasty side effects from taking creatine monohydrate. However, some users may experience slight stomach discomfort. If this does happen to you, then simply stop using for 7 days and re-start at a lower dosage level.
Q. Who should take / benefit from using creatine monohydrate?
A. Bodybuilders and strength athletes. Those new to weight training.
Overall I would recommend these to anyone looking for a fast improvement but you have to put the work in to get the max effect out of these, there are cheap but they work so its a win win.
Hope this helped
The pills are large, too large to swallow if i'm honest. I chocked on a pill on my second day of taking these. It was completely stuck in my throat, not a nice feeling! I was advised to take 8-10 of these a day for my goals in which I am doing but the only way I think humanly you can swallow them is to break them up into smaller pieces.
Apart from the size, i think its a good buy. Slightly better than the powders perhaps as some i have used tend not to dissolve, at least with these pills you know the product is getting into you and not stuck in the bottom of your glass.
Very cheap product, have been taking 3-4 times a day and I feel it has definitely helped my development and training.
