Creatine is a nitrogenous organic acid that’s found naturally in the body. It’s estimated 95% of the human body’s creatine content is found directly in the skeletal muscle which is what lead to both its discovery and application in sports nutrition. Creatine monohydrate is essentially a supplement form of creatine and is also the most researched form of creatine in sports nutrition today.

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. What is the difference between powdered and tablet forms of Creatine Monohydrate?
A. Powdered Creatine is absorbed more rapidly by the bloodstream compared to that of a pill. Pills tend to have coatings on them so this slows down the absorption rate.
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. Is all Creatine Monohydrate 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.
