What is Amplified Creatine 189™?
Looking for the creatine? We've got it. Amplified Creatine 189™ is a cutting-edge solution that tops ordinary creatine monohydrate. In fact, it's proven to get into your muscles and improve strength more efficiently.* Don't just take any creatine. Tear it up with Amplified Creatine 189™.

The Amplified Creatine 189™ Evolution
It all started with basic science. Everyone knows creatine works to improve athletic performance.* The question is- how did we AMPlify its effects.

PEG-Creatine System™- This proprietary formula includes a patent-pending technology which allows you to get the same benefits as regular creatine monohydrate at a much lower dose! That's right, you no longer have to take mounds of powder or handfuls of creatine pills to get the performance enhancing benefits of creatine.

The Proof is in the Muscle
We tested it and have proof that Amplified Creatine 189™ gets into muscle- even better than ordinary creatine! In a clinical study, Amplified Creatine 189 resulted in 189% muscle creatine uptake relative to creatine monohydrate.* Users of Amplified Creatine 189™ take less creatine and get more into the muscle.*

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.

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® AMP Amplified Creatine 189™:

      This product worked for me when no other form of creatine did. It required no loading or cycling and didn't leave me feeling bloated. When I was on it, I was working out harder and stronger than ever before. I could work out longer without getting tired.

      I also have some myofascial pain and neck pain related to muscle tension, and the creatine even seemed to help a lot with that. It really was too good to be true.

      The downside is the creatine enabled me to push myself way too hard. After 15 years of working out with no injuries, 6 months on the creatine left me with chronic tendonitis that has plagued me for years now. I can barely work out at all. I've been off the creatine and seen countless doctors and tried therapies, and I think those 6 months on the creatine did me in. In retrospect I really wish I had never taken it. The 6 months of awesome workouts were not worth it... now I can barely work out at all.

      It's a great product, if you use it very carefully. Don't overdo it!!!

        Comments about GNC Pro Performance® AMP Amplified Creatine 189™:

        Dont get me wrong, I love the product but sometimes the pills do not disolve/digest and it comes out in my fecal matter when I go to the bathroom. If it doesnt disolve, it cant be working. So if you give it a try and this happens, break it in half or crush it and take it that way. If you crush it into powder make sure you have your drink close by when you take it cause the powder taste like hell.

          Comments about GNC Pro Performance® AMP Amplified Creatine 189™:

          I take 1-2 pills daily about 30 mins before my workout. If I am working out for an extended amount of time (>90 mins) then I will take a second dose somewhere in the middle of my workout.
          I have noticed an extreme increase in my performance and endurance/stamina compared to no supplement. When I take the creatine I feel like I could workout all day and then when the workout is done, I can continue on and do whatever I need to do during the day. I highly recommend the use of this supplement for anyone who wants to workout more and enjoy their workout more. It is also far better than using the powder that mixes with liquid, which can alter the taste greatly.
          The pills are very large though so I recommend buying a pill cutter so you can cut them in half or even quarters, depending on your tolerance for large pills.

              Comments about GNC Pro Performance® AMP Amplified Creatine 189™:

              I am familiar to the weight lifting and circuit training for the past 15 years. Professional commitments and being vegetarian I have found it challenging to gain mass and strength. It took 10 days or so to begin to feel progress. At first I thought it was absorption related due to stomach discomfort so changed the formula to powdering the pills and adding to 3G of water to consume throughout the day. As a physician I am skeptical of most supplements but now my energy level, strength and stamina have improved substantially to now 6 days/week workouts compared to 4 previously. It works and works very well.
