Betancourt Nutrition has its own 140,000-square-foot cGMP manufacturing facility. This allows us to experiment…a lot. After much trial and error, our supplement development team figured out how to compress one of the world's most studied performance-enhancing supplements "creatine- into a single chewable tablet so small that two dozen of them can fit in your hand. Plus, we made it taste like candy!
Of the more than 200 studies published on creatine, those investigating its effects on resistance exercise performance surmise that, on average, subjects supplementing with creatine increase their weightlifting performance more than those taking a placebo (1).* As with any supplement, individual responses vary considerably, with studies reporting increases in bench press 1RM strength of 3% all the way up to a remarkable 45%.*
The evidence is favor of creatine is so strong, researchers are even telling doctors to recommend it. Dalbo et al. (2) state, “Physicians should strongly consider advising older adults to supplement with creatine and to begin a resistance training regime in an effort to enhance skeletal muscle strength and hypertrophy, resulting in enhanced quality of life.”
Whether you're young or old, a hardcore "bodybuilder" or someone who just wants to support healthy and wellness, creatine supplementation can help you.* With the release of new CHEWIES™ Creatine Micros, Betancourt has made creatine supplementation even more convenient and enjoyable.

- Supplement Facts
Creatine's effects on muscle strength and performance can be explained at least in part by its ability to increase phosphocreatine (PCr) levels.* Higher PCr levels encourage faster recovery of muscle adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels after exercise. ATP is the ultimate source of energy for muscle contraction and many other processes. To increase your muscle PCr levels, it's recommended that you supplement with creatine daily.* You can take CHEWIES Creatine Micros any time of day. Studies suggest that when you take it isn't as important as how much you take, and how consistently. Start by taking 1 serving of CHEWIES after your first meal of the day and again after exercise. Chew the tablets thoroughly before swallowing with water.

- Health Notes
Creatine MonohydrateCreatine Monohydrate
- Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
- Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
- For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.
Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.
For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

Creatine (creatine monohydrate) is a colorless, crystalline substance used in muscle tissue for the production of phosphocreatine, an important factor in the formation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the source of energy for muscle contraction and many other functions in the body.1, 2
