The Ultimate Performance Supplement Breakthrough
Pro Performance ® AMP Amplified Creatine XXX™ has taken creatine supplementation to a whole new level. This powerful formula includes a clinically studied strength enhancer for superior muscular creatine absorption, amino acid delivery and glycogen re-loading.* It’s created with a 10g Micronized Creatine Matrix Blend to deliver fast fuel for powerful performance. This innovation keeps on delivering with a amino muscle surge providing a clinically studied blend of amino acids, including branched chain amino acids (BCAA), and carbohydrates to help reduce the breakdown of muscle during intense training.* This advanced formula supplies three of the most critical components to training, creatine, amino acids, and carbohydrates, designed for serious and hardcore athletes striving to go beyond their maximum potential. In the body, creatine is converted to creatine phosphate which helps fuel skeletal muscles and provides support for immediate energy production during high-intensity workouts, while amino acids are involved in protein synthesis for the muscle growth and repairing process.* Amplified Creatine XXX™ gives you the most powerful creatine and amino acid system available today.

Where’s the Proof?
Numerous studies have shown the benefits of creatine and amino acids for training. The supplementation of creatine may help improve athletic performance and promote celluar hydration while amino acids, promote the growth and repair tissues, including muscles.* Our research and development experts have taken the science and developed a powerful creatine formulation… Amplified Creatine XXX™, loaded with a blend of ingredients that significantly maximize the effects of creatine and amino acids.* Carbohydrates are the body’s main source of post-workout recovery and energy, this formula is infused with 33-gram supply of dextrose, a fast-acting carbohydrate, to help spike insulin and drive creatine and amino acids into the muscles more efficiently.* It also includes micronized creatine precursors designed to help fuel your body’s natural creatine production process. This clinically researched creatine and carbohydrate blend has been shown to dramatically increase bench press, vertical jump and 100 yard dash performance.* Making it more extreme, additional research shows the amino acid and carbohydrate blend delivers the power of 40 grams of amino acids, providing benefits to your muscle and energy levels to help enhance performance.*

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.

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 XXX™ - Fruit Punch:

    My daily routine is Max Interval Training (Insanity, Les Mills Body Pump etc.) first and Weight Training after.

    After adding this to my stack, I started seeing very noticeable improvements after about a week in muscle: strength, endurance and recovery in both Max Interval Training and Weight Training.
    In the 2nd, 3rd and 4th weeks I more consistently increased the weight and/or repetition for all upper body exercises. I was able to graduate up to the next 5 lb increment in all dumbbell exercises more quickly and my bench press has increase 5 lbs every week. Max Interval Training also noticeably improved in terms of number of pushups, burpees, and plank strength etc.

    I've mostly taking as directed, taking the recommended serving after workout, but I've also been experimenting with taking 1/2 post Max Interval Training and the other 1/2 post Weight Training. I haven't noticed any difference taking it that way thus far.

    I think it works well with other supplements and I specifically added pure Beta-Alanine to work with the Creatine for a one-two punch. I have however temporarily stopped taking GNC Waterex from my Vita Pak as it seems the two supplements would contradict each other; the Creatine wants to keep your muscles super hydrated and the Waterex wants to rid your body of excess water so I decided to leave them out during the cycle. I did notice some weight gain in the first week, which could have been the hydrating affects of the creatine and/or my body fully rehydrating after coming off the Waterex.

    This is my first time using creatine and I'm happy with the results. I always do my research before adding a supplement. The medical science is there to support the benefits claimed.

    The Fruit Punch tastes great just like you'd expect fruit punch to taste. I has also bought Blue Raspberry, but didn't care for it personally.

    My full stack is:

    -GNC Pro Performance AMP Amplified Creatine XXX
    -Arginine AKG

        I take this directly after working out. Noticed that it really helps with my soreness the next day and also adds muscle size. Make sure you consume a large amount of water

            Started taking this product and am very please with it. Great product and would really recommend it to anyone. I run between 1 to 2 miles a day 5 times a week then do my lifting. Helps with recovery and I like the taste. It is easy to mix if you have a bottle to shake it up in. I have not tried to stir it in a cup.

                  I tried out this product along with the Strength vitapak and Jack3d. In 6 weeks I gained 14 lbs and clear definition. I do upper body every other day and cardio/lowerbody and abs on the other days. Bottome line, you HAVE to work out and be consistent to see results. It's not a magic powder. I have loved the results. I recommend taking with a good preworkout supplement as well such as Jack3d or Gakic. Go for Pink Lemonade flavor!

                    I drink it between sets during lifting, and use it along with C4 Pre Workout and the Amplified Recovery Protein XR after. Only a week and a half in, I see a difference in the size of my frame, particularly across the shoulders/biceps. It's also easily the best tasting supplement I've used.
