Health Notes

Creatine Monohydrate

Creatine Monohydrate
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • 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.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Dose: 5 grams three times a day for two weeks, and then 5 grams once daily
Creatine has been shown to increase muscle strength, muscle endurance, and overall health status.(more)
High Cholesterol
Dose: Refer to label instructions
One trial found that supplementing with creatine significantly lowered serum total cholesterol and triglycerides in people with high cholesterol.(more)
High Triglycerides
Dose: Refer to label instructions
One trial found that supplementing with significantly lowered serum total triglycerides in both men and women.(more)
Athletic Performance and Non-Weight Bearing Endurance Exercise
Dose: 15 to 20 grams daily for five or six days
Taking this supplement for five or six days may improve performance of high-intensity, short-duration exercise (like sprinting) or sports with alternating low- and high-intensity efforts.(more)
Athletic Performance and High-Intensity, Short Duration Exercise or Sports with Alternating Low- and High-Intensity Efforts
Dose: 15 to 20 grams a day for five or six days
Supplementing with creatine may improve performance of non-weight bearing endurance exercises such as cycling.(more)
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Dose: 5 grams three times a day for two weeks, and then 5 grams once daily

In a double-blind study, people with COPD received creatine or a placebo for 12 weeks. After the first 2 weeks of supplementation, all participants underwent an outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation program. Compared with the placebo, creatine significantly increased muscle strength, muscle endurance, and overall health status, but not exercise capacity.1 The amount of creatine used in this study was 5 grams three times a day for 2 weeks, and then 5 grams once a day for 10 weeks.

High Cholesterol
Dose: Refer to label instructionsA double-blind trial found that 20 grams per day of creatine taken for five days, followed by ten grams per day for 51 days, significantly lowered serum total cholesterol and triglycerides, but did not change either LDL or HDL cholesterol, in both men and women.1 However, another double-blind trial found no change in any of these blood levels in trained athletes using creatine during a 12-week strength training program.2 Creatine supplementation in this negative trial was lower-only 5 grams per day were taken for the last 11 weeks of the study.

High Triglycerides
Dose: Refer to label instructions

A double-blind trial found that a supplement of 5 grams of creatine plus 1 gram of glucose taken four times per day for five days followed by twice a day for 51 days significantly lowered serum total triglycerides in both men and women.1However, another double-blind trial found no change in any of these blood levels in trained athletes using creatine during a 12-week strength training program.2 Creatine supplementation in this negative trial was lower-only five grams per day was taken for the last 11 weeks of the study.

Athletic Performance and Non-Weight Bearing Endurance Exercise
Dose: 15 to 20 grams daily for five or six days

Creatine (creatine monohydrate) is used in muscle tissue for the production of phosphocreatine, a factor in the formation of ATP, the source of energy for muscle contraction and many other functions in the body.1, 2 Creatine supplementation increases phosphocreatine levels in muscle, especially when accompanied by exercise or carbohydrate intake.3, 4 It may also increase exercise-related gains in lean body mass, though it is unclear how much of these gains represents added muscle tissue and how much is simply water retention.5

Over 40 double-blind or controlled studies have found creatine supplementation (typically 136 mg per pound of body weight per day or 15 to 25 grams per day for five or six days) improves performance of either single or repetitive bouts of short-duration, high-intensity exercise lasting under 30 seconds each.6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 Examples of this type of exercise include weightlifting; sprinting by runners, cyclists, or swimmers; and many types of athletic training regimens for speed and power. About 15 studies did not report enhancement by creatine of this type of performance. These have been criticized for their small size and other research design problems, but it is possible that some people, especially elite athletes, are less likely to benefit greatly from creatine supplementation.13

Fewer studies have investigated whether creatine supplementation benefits continuous high- intensity exercise lasting 30 seconds or longer. Five controlled studies have found creatine beneficial for this type of exercise,14 but one study found no benefit on performance of a military obstacle course run.15 Most studies of endurance performance have found no advantage of creatine supplementation, except perhaps for non-weight bearing exercise such as cycling. 16, 17, 18

Long-term use of creatine supplementation is typically done using smaller daily amounts (2 to 5 grams per day) after an initial loading period of several days with 20 grams per day. Very little research has been done to investigate the exercise performance effects of long-term creatine supplementation. One study reported that long-term creatine supplementation improved sprint performance.19 Four controlled long-term trials using untrained women,20 trained men,21 or untrained older adults found that creatine improved gains made in strength and lean body mass from weight-training programs.22, 23 However, two controlled trials found no advantage of long-term creatine supplementation in weight-training football players.24, 25

Creatine supplementation appears to increase body weight and lean body mass or fat-free mass, but these measurements do not distinguish between muscle growth and increased water content of muscle.26, 27 A few double-blind studies using more specific muscle measurements have been done and found that combining creatine supplementation with strength training over several weeks does produce greater increases in muscle size compared with strength training alone.28, 29, 30

Built muscle immediately, and very effectively.
This is the best creatine I have ever taken.

It does not mix completely so there will be residue in the bottom of your shaker.
Tastes like cinnamon, not unflavored.

Overall, the pros outweigh the cons million-to-one

    Comments about Cellucor® Cor-Performance Series Creatine™ - Unflavored:

    This is without a doubt one of my favorite creatines of all-time. I have only been using creatine supplements for a little over a year, but have tried many different kinds of creatine supplements throughout this span of time. The thing I have noticed with creatine supplements is that my body responds differently to different forms of creatine. Some creatine forms, I respond extremely well to... On the other hand, some creatine forms do absoultely nothing for me, in terms of endurance, strength and explosive power. Cellucor's creatine is the first creatine blend I have tried, and BOY will I never go back to any other kind. I believe that my body has responded better to this creatine product than any other kind, and my workouts have showed this. With a blend, I get the best of not just 1 form of creatine, but multiple forms of the best creatines out there. With my first workout I could already tell a difference, and within 1 week my muscles looked much fuller and harder. This is hands down my fave creatine supplement, and I am absolutely in LOVE with it. The unflavored is my favorite, because you can mix it with other supplements, or if you drink it plain it has a really nice cinnamon taste to it.

    Taste: (7/10)
    This product taste similar to cinnamon which I'm not a fan of. I usually mix this product with orange juice before each workout. I have tried mixing with a C4 product as well and the taste just didn't blend together well. The taste is also a personal preference just because I don't like cinnamon.

    Mixability: (7/10)
    When I mix this product with my orange juice, I constantly have to keep stirring it after each drink because it seems to remain grainy while in the cup.

    Effectiveness: (10/10)
    This product has definitely provided me change and provided me with bulkiness after each workout and through the whole process. Another thing that is great about this product is the value because it has lasted me awhile with using one scoop per workout, and working out four times a week.

    So even though this is supposed to be tasteless I really don't feel like it is. Has a little bit of a taste but that's besides the point. The creatine works great. Seemed to aid in my recovery time and not make me feel bloated. I put on solid strength gains while using this product upping my bench press 15-20 pounds after about 2 weeks of use. Awesome if you ask me. For the price you get a great deal and it is effective. Great job cellucor.

      Comments about Cellucor® Cor-Performance Series Creatine™ - Unflavored:

      I haven't used a stand alone creatine product in quite a while,I would usually just use a pre-workout that has creatine in it. All I really remembered about creatine products in the past was that they tasted horrible and were hard to mix up really good. I would never take past creatine products alone and really didn't like the way they would change the taste of whatever they were mixed with.

      So when I had the opportuity to try Cellucor Creatine I was skeptical. First thing I noticed was that it did not taste bad at all. With this product I could easily add it to a pre-workout drink without worrying about the drink tasting horrible. On a few occasions I even took it by itself just mixed into water and had no problem with the taste(It wasn't powdery or chaulky).

      It also mixes really easily in whatever you decide to drink it in. I was able to mix it in water alone with just a few stirs of a spoon and there were no clumps stuck at the bottom for me to deal with.

      Now what you really want to know about, what kind of results did I see?

      After using it for about a month I began to notice that I had MORE ENERGY during my workouts. My ENDURANCE began to INCREASE and I was doing 1-2 more reps on certian exercises with weights that previously ended in failure with less repititions. I also saw an INCREASE in STRENGTH as my 1-rep max on several exercises went up 5-10lbs.

      I'm looking forward to continue using this great creatine product and to see how it will continue to help me advance towards my goals over the next few months. If you are like me and stayed away from stand alone creatine products, because of past expereinces, do your self a favor and give this one a go. You WON'T be disapointed!

        Works good just like other creatines. But this product tastes terrible. If you can get over the taste though it isnt bad.

              Only been taking this product for 3 weeks now. Really haven't seen any signigicant results.
              I use the product as instructed everyday.
              Some were talking about the taste, but I really don't care what it tastes like, I just slug it down. The only problem I see is that it really doesn't disolve well even when used as instructed. I usually just put a little water in the bottom of the container and drink the non-disolved salts down.

                  Comments about Cellucor® Cor-Performance Series Creatine™ - Unflavored:

                  First off I want to start by saying that I take this everyday with Cellucor C4. I only take one scoop to get me my 5 grams of creatine monohydrate.

                  Taste 7/10

                  This product is called unflavored becuase, well it is not flavored. Just because it is unflavored it does not mean that it will literally taste like nothing. It has a weird taste to it, but that is just the ingredients in there. The cinnamon bark extract really does stand out when you drink it, but whatever. When I mix it with C4 icy blue razz it kind of reminds me of the taste of N.O. Explode. Its an easily tolerable taste.

                  Mixability 6/10

                  This product does not mix very well. You end up with a good amount of white crystals in the bottom of your cup and they are very bitter. I assume it is just an ingredient that does not hydrolyze very well. It doesnt make the drink chunky at all, but it makes you feel like you arent taking everything in if you dont get those last pieces down.

                  Just remember unflavored does not necessarily mean that it will not taste like anything!

                  Effectiveness 10/10

                  With most creatine supplements I have taken I got very bloated and gained a lot of water weight. With this I did gain some weight obviously because it is mainly creatine monohydrate, but I was not bloated at all. I like how cellucor implements ingredients to help the absorption of the creatine.

                  Compared to BB Micronized creatine monohydrate for example I definitely got way better and more results from this creatine.

                  Value 10/10

                  This is a great value. You get everything you need with this creatine. It has many properties to balance factors and make absorption as quick as possible.
