Who is it ideal for?
How should you use it?
There are essentially two ways to take creatine:
Method 1: Take 5g (1 scoop) of creatine daily. If you’ve never taken creatine before, this method will gradually increase its level inside your muscles, causing them to increase in size, strength and stamina.
Method 2 is known as “loading.” You start by taking 5g of creatine, four times daily (a total of 20 g), for one week. Following this, you take 5g daily. Because the loading method causes your muscles to accumulate creatine faster, you will also experience benefits faster. Pick whichever method you choose. They both work reliably.
Your muscle cells contain tiny proteins, known as transporters, that pull creatine inside the cell. Once these become saturated with creatine, they need a few hours to process it. We suggest waiting at least 4 hours before taking another serving.
Creatine requires adequate water to produce maximum results. We advise mixing each 5 g scoop with at least 10-12oz of water or any other drink like a protein shake.
Eating carbohydrates ('carbs') enhances the uptake of creatine by your muscles. This is because it stimulates the release of insulin, which in turn stimulates the creatine transporters in your muscle cells. Carbs that digest quickly (ex: breakfast cereals, white rice and potatoes) work best.
