This product does what I expected, though it’s the only creative product that I’ve ever used so I have nothing to compare it to.

This works well however this produces worse side effects than it was designed to prevent. I would rather have slight stomach discomfort than tooth decay and this is extremely acidic.

I definitely notice improvements in muscle gain after adding creatine HC1 into my diet. With the perfect serving size, you avoid adding any water weight to your muscles. Add this into your pre-workout and don’t take it by itself. This makes up for its bad aftertaste.

This creatine is high quality and has no loading period. Take as needed before a workout or cardio such as mountain biking, running, etc. It is not necessary to take it every day. Only workout days.

Good Creatine regiment
I like how this creatine dissolves in liquid. It seems like maybe it is easier to absorb? I have been using this product for about a year now and seem to gain muscle size and fullness.
