In the realm of muscle-building supplements, creatine monohydrate is king.* It’s one of the most researched, studied, and effective products on the market. Studies suggest that creatine monohydrate can help:
- Promote muscle growth*
- Support maximal strength*
- Enhance muscular energy*
- Delay workout fatigue*
- Support increased muscle size via cell hydration*
Sound incredible? It is. After all, becoming king isn’t easy.
Creatine occurs naturally in the body and is found in small quantities in dietary sources like red meat. Creatine monohydrate works by saturating your muscles with a high-energy compound called creatine phosphate (PCr), which can be used by the body as an immediate energy supply during intense exercise.* Creatine also hydrates muscle cells with water, promoting muscle fiber growth.*
Micronized creatine sets a new standard for creatine monohydrate because of its smaller particle size. In this case, smaller particles mean faster absorption.* Because micronized creatine contains particles 20 times smaller than regular creatine mono, it offers what you need, when you need it.* Not only does micronized creatine optimize absorption, it mixes well with any beverage and is incredibly convenient.*
Long live the king.
Mix one scoop (5 grams) of Micronized Creatine with 8 to 12 oz. of water, fruit juice or your favorite beverage.
SUGGESTED — USE:
Creatine Loading (20 GRAMS PER DAY): Mix one scoop (5 grams) of Micronized Creatine with morning, afternoon and evening meals and one additional scoop before going to bed for 4 to 5 days to help saturate your muscles with creatine.
Creatine Maintenance (5 GRAMS PER DAY): Mix one scoop (5 grams) of Micronized Creatine with a meal OR immediately after training with your post workout protein shake.
Try adding micronized creatine to protein powders, meal-replacements, and weight-gainer shakes for optimal results. Drink at least eight glasses of water daily when supplementing with creatine.
Remember to check the labels of other sports nutrition supplements you’re currently using, especially pre- and post-workout products. These products often contain creatine, which you should account for during loading and/or maintenance.
