Health Notes

Creatine Monohydrate

Creatine 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.

Comments about GNC Pro Performance® Creatine Monohydrate:

I've tried hydrochloric creatine and decided to give the monohydrate a whirl. Mono is more of a look based creatine. Hydro is more strength based. While on the monohydrate I noticed some significant size in my biceps, one issue I noticed was that I wasn't able to lift the same amount I usually was able to do. For example I would work on my lower bicep and used a barbell on a pad where I would let my elbows rest. Before taking the creatine I had no problem out performing my gym partner who was only using protein with his workouts. So if youre looking for size based you should go with this product. Also make sure you drink at least a gallon a day before using the creatine or else you will notice cramps in your kidneys. After stopping use you will lose about 2-3 lbs at least that's what happened to me. I will use this product again, people bash gnc products meanwhile they actually work for you if you put in the commitment. I am now taking bpi creatine alk. Hopefully I will see some results with that.

    Comments about GNC Pro Performance® Creatine Monohydrate:

    Effective either before or after workout, just add it to your shake. I don't recommend taking it in just water as it does not blend well on its own.

        Comments about GNC Pro Performance® Creatine Monohydrate:

        I use 15 grams a day in protein shakes, usually before working out. This is the only product that has helped me consistently gain significant muscle mass. I am not a nutritionist, and I can't explain how, but for me in packs on the muscle and creates noticeable definition.
        Only has a gritty taste when you use the maximum amount with minimal liquid.

          I mix it with a protein shake and drink some before I work out and then I drink the rest after my work out. This gives me enough energy to get through my work out and then helps with muscle recovery after my work out.

              This stuff doesn't really mix well so u gotta make sure when u drink it u drink it all fast or keep shaking/mixing it. In water i don't recommend it but i usually mix it with my protein (with milk) after my workouts, and mix it with gatorade before my workout. With gatorade you'll be good. Overall i could deff tell a change in my body and built mass. I felt really sore when i got off it after i finished my maintenance phase and overall i highly recommend this product. Its a great price and it WORKS!!!!!!!!! helped increase my hang cling from 235 to 265 and my bench from 325 to 390 (which is now the record in my school)
