So we changed the game, formulating a tasty and convenient chewable creatine monohydrate mint tablet now making it easier for you to complete your creatine cycle and make those impressive improvements in strength, speed and performance.
Creatine is one of the most researched driven sports nutrition supplements to exist. Countless studies have shown that creatine significantly increases lean muscle mass and strength gains and it does so safely.(1,2) A study done by the Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise journal looked at the effects of creatine on isometric bench-press performance. The double blind study concluded that for five days of creatine supplementation the resistance trained men increased body weight and fat-free body mass. The study also showed that the responders compared with the placebo group saw significantly greater peak force and total force during a repeated maximal isometric bench-press test.(3) You have probably heard tons of conflicting truths about creatine. Below we’ll discuss a few common misconceptions people have about creatine.
Here’s 9 Misconceptions About Creatine Supplementation:
The more creatine tablets you consume, the better your results will be. Truth. Studies from the Human Performance Laboratory at Ball State University suggest that just 5g of creatine monohydrate is enough to reach saturation and for you to see strength and explosive gains in the gym or on the field. Many supplement with between 3-5g of creatine daily. This is the equivalent of consuming 4-6 chewable mint flavoured creatine tablets per day.
Creatine loading is a must Truth. If you are a olympic sprinter, professional bodybuilder, competitive powerlifter/weightlifter or any other athlete training at an elite level then the loading phase may help with bringing results faster. However for most recreational fitness enthusiasts supplementing with 3-5g (4-6 creatine tablets) per day everyday should be all that is required to see the benefits of creatine supplementation.
Creatine tablets are bad for the liver and kidneys Truth. Unless you have a genetic predisposition or a pre-existing liver/kidney condition then taking 4-6 creatine tablets (3-5g) each day will not damage your kidneys or your liver. There has been multiple studies done on creatine monohydrate supplementation and the general consensus is that it is safe and does not add any stress or negatively effect the liver or the kidneys in any way.
Creatine monohydrate should be taken with water or juice. Truth. There are some reasons why creatine can be taken with a cordial drink and this has to do with insulin in the body. Insulin supposedly helps shuttle the creatine to the muscles faster. However, in the early studies of creatine monohydrate, tests were done on creatine taken with a warm solution such as tea or coffee with no effects of creatine degradation. With our creatine tablets there is no need to worry about taking them with any solution, you can just chew them throughout the day for maximum results.
You can get enough creatine just from eating real food Truth. Whilst creatine is a natural compound found in a variety of foods such as beef, salmon and tuna, the cooking process can degrade creatine into its inactive counterpart creatinine through the removal of a water molecule. Also getting an efficacious dose of creatine through food is very difficult. It is said that in order to hit 2g of creatine from the diet you would need to consume around 1.4lbs of chicken or up to a pound of lean red meats, daily. This is a lot of food to worry about consuming everyday, especially when the majority of us live very busy lives. With creatine tablets you can take them with ease whenever you feel like.
Newer forms of creatine work better than creatine monohydrate Truth. Just google “creatine monohydrate” and see how many research papers there are natural. It is the most research-driven fitness supplement on the market. Stick to what the science says. Creatine monohydrate is easily assimilated by the body and is by far the best form of creatine to stick with. No other creatine form has enough evidence to claim it is better than creatine monohydrate.
Creatine can be used for all sporting backgrounds. Truth. Creatine tablets should not be used where the athlete requires a steady aerobic output such as endurance athletes like marathon and ultra marathon runners. It won’t have the desired effect and is just a waste of your money. You won’t find many supplement companies saying that but it’s the truth. People who stand to gain the most from consuming Creatine Fresh creatine tablets are professional bodybuilders, crossfit athletes, competitive powerlifters, olympic weightlifters, MMA fighters, sprinters, and professional rugby and football players, amongst many others. Athletes that require a sharp, sudden high intensity burst of energy should consider supplementing with Creatine Fresh creatine tablets to improve athletic performance.
Creatine is a type of steroid. Truth. This is simply 100% false. Creatine has no structural relationship with a steroid. It is a natural compound found in foods such as animal fats and fish. Creatine tablets are not steroid tablets.
Creatine causes a bloated look. Truth. This is another false negative of creatine supplementation. Creatine does cause the muscles to hold more water than usual normal (around 6.2% more on a 5g per day creatine supplementation plan over a 9 week period). This is because creatine is stored in the muscles and therefore requires additional water for it to be held there. However, the extra water weight is intra-cellular “inside the cell” rather than subcutaneous meaning “beneath the skin”. In other words creatine does not cause bloating because the water retention, however slightly caused, is stored in the muscle cell and not in the muscle just underneath the skin. It may be the case that because creatine monohydrate can be used as a bodybuilding bulking supplement users will tend to follow a higher caloric diet than normal and may end up adding extra fat around the abdomen causing a bloating type look. Overall, creatine is a great sports supplement all ages and genders can enjoy, and they can do so safely.
