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 Optimum Nutrition Micronized Creatine Powder:

    I use 5g (one serving) of this product in my protein shakes post workout. I noticed strength gains within a week. My bench press increased, my lat pull down increased and my squat numbers went up. Essentially all the major muscle groups loved it ;)
    As far as "retaining water"....I have not, at least not in the way of being bloated. I drink a gallon a day, which if you are working out everyday is what you should be drinking anyways. If you are experiencing bloating that is probably because you're loading it, which is fine, but expect that. Creatine's main purpose is to retain water in your muscles. So there really should be no complaints about "retaining water" since that is the main goal of the supplement. A hydrated muscle is an anabolic muscle!

          I add Micronized creatine powder to my after-workout protein shake. Has no flavor so it doesn't change the taste of my shake. The price for this quality product is great.

            Comments about Optimum Nutrition Micronized Creatine Powder:

            This stuff gave me intense stomach-aches (and the expected by product... woof) about 5 times a day so I stopped using it in less than two weeks. I didn't do a typical cycle (load etc.), opting instead to only take a scoop before and after lifting 6 times a week. For what it's worth, it was my first time using creatine in about 4 years.

            As far as taste, there is none. Mix it with water and it's fine, albeit more chalky/textured than advertised.

            It is extremely cheap, and from what I've heard about creatine, it's all the same. Worth the risk for the price, especially if you've used creatine a lot in the past and haven't experienced/ built up a tolerance for creatine's side-effects
