Connor Lavy explains why Creapure Creatine Monohydrate should be one of your staple supplements. Creatine Monohydrate is one of the most extensively researched sports nutrition supplements out there, and Creapure Creatine Monohydrate is the purest form of Creatine you will get. Creatine phosphate is naturally occurring in your body and is needed for sport. It is used to resynthesise adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is essentially energy. For exercises lasting around 10 seconds at a time, the creatine is called to action. Its job, in short, is to provide you with energy. Your phosphocreatine stores take a few minutes to recover and, when training, you don't always have a few minutes, so supplementing your stores could well be the answer for you.
Creapure benefitsYou can already see why it is important to your training, but creatine supplementation also has many other health benefits, for instance it can be an antioxidant, help retain water, assists the retention of your progress or muscle development and can not only be provide energy for the muscles but also the brain. The good news is, you can get creatine by eating red meat. However, you would need to eat an obscene amount in order to see the difference. So, with numerous health benefits using creatine is a no-brainer, especially as there are no proven health risks to creatine, unless you already have pre-existing conditions. Creapure Creatine Monohydrate is exactly that – pure. When buying supplements you should be careful. Some products are advertised with a man the size of a truck and they claim to 'unleash your inner beast'. With GoNutrition® there are no such claims, only facts. Nothing is added to Creapure Creatine Monohydrate, it is pure which is why the ingredients list is so short. It is 99.9% Creatine Monohydrate and that is what you want in a product, especially if you are skeptical. You can trust this product. Understandably people are skeptical of taking on new supplements. In the past your products may have been polluted with dangerous additives but fear not, this is safe and I have experienced no side effects in the two years or so that I have been taking Creapure Creatine Monohydrate.
Creapure mixability and tasteCreapure Creatine Monohydrate is incredibly fine and for this reason it is easily mixed. Generally a scoop and a half (5g) goes in my post-workout shake and I don't even notice it's in there. This is the best way to take it, you can mix it with purely water but it is flavourless, which guarantees it's purity. Therefore mixing it with something that has flavour (at the moment Micellar Casein 85: triple chocolate) is, probably, your best option. You won't even realise that this amazing product is in your shake. I know people that take it in their OJ and various other drinks - 10/10 for mixability.
Does Creapure work?The nitty gritty: does it work, would I recommend? You shouldn't expect to take Creapure and suddenly become Arnie II. It will take a bit of time and your muscle development won't be drastic. However I, personally, would not go another day without Creapure Creatine Monohydrate. It has provided a noticeable difference and has helped me to heap kilos onto my lifts, given me lean gains and a more vascular, shredded look. All in all, creatine will be a staple part of my nutrition plan for the foreseeable future and I would recommend everyone who lifts to work it into their daily routine. Thumbs up from me on three counts: value for money, ease of use and effectiveness.
