Creatine Monohydrate is proven to work and is one of the most studied and science backed nutrition supplements of all time. Click here to see just a few of these references.
Serving Size: 1 Scoop (5 grams)
Servings per Container: 100
Amount per Serving:
- Creatine Monohydrate (5g) is used in muscle tissue for the production of phosphocreatine, a factor in the formation of ATP, the source of energy for muscle contraction and many other functions in the body. Research suggests that implementing creatine when performing high-intensity exercise or weight training will improve athletic performance and quicken recovery time during and after exercise.
Serving Size: 1 Scoop (5 grams)
Servings per Container: 100
As a dietary supplement, mix one (1) serving (5g) daily with 12-16oz water or non-acidic juice.
