Creatine is a fantastic ingredient in both a pre-workout and post-workout context for improving strength, power output and muscle size. However, we already include the full saturation dosage of creatine in our pre-workout and post-workout products.
On days that you're not taking the pre-workouts or post-workout you can now conveniently take the Creatine capsules if you prefer it over the powder.
Creatine’s effect on strength is facilitated by increasing the body’s stores of phosphocreatine, which is then used during high-intensity exercise to produce ATP which is considered the energy currency of the cell.
In addition, you can expect a significant increase in muscle size and body weight over time via the process of osmosis, which draws water into the muscle.
As one of the most studied and effective performance-enhancing supplements, it’s important to ensure that creatine is taken every day at a full saturation dose to ensure that your muscles are full!
Creatine Monohydrate can be supplemented through a loading protocol. To start loading, take 0.3 grams per kilogram of bodyweight per day for 5-7 days, then follow with at least 0.03-0.06 g/kg/day either for three weeks (if cycling) or indefinitely (without additional loading phases). For a 180 lb (82kg) person, this translates to 25 g/day during the loading phase and 2.5-5 g/day afterward. Higher dosages (up to 10 g/day) may be beneficial for people with a high amount of muscle mass and high activity levels, or for those who are non-responders to the lower 5 g/day dose.
Take 7 capsules once per day.
If creatine upsets your stomach, take 4 capsules in the morning and 3 capsules in the evening instead.
