Excellent buy
I'll start off with how you use this properly. You can do more research online but there are three phases. The first is the loading phase. This is where you should be taking 15-25grams per day(Based on body weight)[5-14 days]. The second is named the maintenance phase. This is where you should be taking one serving in the morning(about 3.5-5grams is good)[21-42 days). The third phase is what most people leave out but is very important. This is named the "washout phase" which is where you quit using Creatine for about a month. First of all you should know what Creatine is meant for. Creatine is designed to be a daily supplement that helps your body produce Creatine Phosphate. It speeds up ATP which gives you an extra boost of energy. This could increase muscle strength during workout 15-20% which is great. 40% of college and 50% of professional athletes use or have used Creatine. It gives you that extra strength that allows you to get through a tougher workout routine. It also adds water weight which will temporarily increase the size, definition and strength of your muscles. I suggest using this to anyone who is over 18 years of age and wants that extra edge in weight training or whatever sport they play. From personal experience on this particular product, I have noticed an increase in muscular strength and tenderness very quickly. As a pitcher, I feel that I can throw the ball harder and also hit the ball further. The cost of this product is quite cheap so why not give it a shot? With all that said there are a few cons you might want to take into consideration.
1: You need to drink about double the water you normally do, during the loading phase.
2:It doesn't dissolve so it may be more tricky to take than you think.
3: During the first few days, you may feel the need to urinate very often throughout the day.(This is true about all Creatine though.)

Oh, it works!
Used this when I was in graduate school a few years back and got HUGE! Adds strength to your workouts and helps build muscle, no question! Recently when I seperated my shoulder I was struggling to make gains in the gym and get back to my old routine, but went back to creatine monohydrate and made immediate gains. Make SURE you are using enough.

CREATINE
Good product, just don't expect results without effort. You have to workout consistently for results....no magic in the bottle, but great assistance.

Attention LADIES
Okay, I had to review this for all the ladies out there... Since all the reviews are from men who are trying to gain muscle mass.
I am 26, 5'0" and 115 lbs. When I began using this product I was 122 lbs. I am a figure competitor and was having a rough time shedding the last few lbs of fat.
Girls, you have to remember that it is a TOUGH gig to gain muscle mass so you need not worry about "bulking" up. Creatine will make you gain water weight. You will feel bloated. However! Once you stop the creatine, you will notice an instant difference in your body and how it feels! I was a tad afraid of starting creatine as it seems to be a product only men go for. If you can be patient for your results... Go on it for a week with perfect diet and lifting and you will see your trim body once you stop.
Cheers!

USE IT!! Mix in HOT-WARM water!!
I use the N.O. Explode before my workout, and I add about 2.5 grams of this creatine to my drink. After about 2.5-3 hours of my workout, I use a about 5 grams of creatine.

I have gained about 10 pounds in almost 3 weeks, and my friends have definetly noticed a size gain.

The problem with this product is that it about 100% insoluable in cold water. If you put it WARM-HOT water, it will dissolve immediatly!!!!!.
I have the unflavored creatine, so the warm-hot water mix with 5 grams of this creatine is absolutely clear, and tasteless.

Works Fast!
Don't load just take 5g a day for a week with juice.
when a creatine works you should notice it in 2weeks or less. I only take it when I workout. For me I noticed gains in 1 week. Drink lots of water when on creatine its important for it to work.

Stuff Works
I have been using this product for the past 3 months and decided to finally write a review. It works best for me when I mix it with my Pre Workout. I use 5gs daily even on recovery days. I have noticed and increase in strength as well as Muscle. Highly recommend it and is very affordable.

I have used for 5 years. Very good!
I mix this product either with grape juice or in my protein shake. I start my day with Creatine and again just before work out time. It does a good job. I am over 50,so I need all the help I can get to stay ahead and out perform the young guys.
