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

Comments about GNC Pro Performance® Creatine Monohydrate:

I started taking this supplement around two weeks ago. I have already started to see results. It isn't so much about packing on the mass with this specific supplement, but it's about gaining incredible amounts of muscle endurance. That extra endurance allows me to push myself harder for longer.

I do heavy workouts, then rest the next day, and I continue to take the supplement. Pairing it with whey protein at nighttime and mega man vitamins, I don't think I've ever felt this good!

My only problem is the serving is five capsules. They aren't huge and they don't have any taste, but just figured I'd warn you guys - you're gonna need the whole 12oz of water/juice!

        My best results are when I Take 2 pills prior to workout and 3 pills post workout and continue dosage on non-training days.
        After one month of use my Arms and Chest have both increased in size and strength.
        Initially you will gain some water retention weight but that will slowly dissipate after you cycle off, only weight from muscle gain will remain.

          Comments about GNC Pro Performance® Creatine Monohydrate:

          My husband was diagnosed with HD, 22 years ago, at that time he was given 8 years to live. With the use of your products (Co-Q 10 and Creatine Mono Hydrate) I have been able to extend his life, in a positive way. The pain + shaking are almost negligible. God Bless you people, I can't thank you enough. His wife - Mary

            Comments about GNC Pro Performance® Creatine Monohydrate:

            I always considered myself to be one of the guys in high school who had scrawny arms/legs, never had a chest, and especially never had enough meat on my bones to have that stellar 6-pack, but after talking it over with a nutrion-expert, he coached me through eating right while taking Creatine to be the most effective; he recommended this exact batch, and I'm here to say the same thing. With nutritional food and a daily absorbtion with a hard work-out, you'll see results in about a month really start to kick in. Good Stuff! My only complaint that might be just me is that I don't feel too much of that "boost of energy". If you have trouble with that like I do, perhaps a pre-workout drink may help with that.

              Doesn't have any taste as some creatine pills do. Gives me more energy during lifting.

                I started with taking 2 before workout and had a good boost. I now take 3 before workout and I do have a little more energy.
