I currently use Prolab Creatine Monohydrate. It is “micronized” which makes it mix a little bit easier.
Here’s some info on creatine:
Creatine Monohydrate is a naturally occurring substance found in skeletal muscle. It is arguably the most extensively researched supplement on the market. Creatine Monohydrate does two things: 1). It helps muscle cells produce contractions, especially the types of contractions used in weight training 2). It draws more fluid into muscle cells, causing them to get bigger. Most trainees (including yours truly) notice some weight gain within days of creatine supplementation.
*Be sure to take in plenty of fluids when supplementing creatine.
*Just buy plain ‘ole creatine powder: “micronized” is OK, but don’t bother with capsules, effervescent, etc.
*Your body stores creatine, so I don’t believe you have to “load” it by taking several doses the first week. I just take it a few times a week after my workout.
*Creatine tends to settle to the bottom of the blender (or whatever you happen to be mixing it in). Be sure not to waste any. Go back and ad a little water to the blender (or glass), slosh it around, and drink it. That way you’ll be sure to drink almost all of the creatine you put in–don’t waste your hard-earned money.
*Buy in bulk. I usually buy the 1,000g container.
