The 411 on Creatine Monohydrate

We’d like to officially introduce you to Creatine Monohydrate, the Sports Research way.

What is Creatine Monohydrate? 

Creatine is a compound (an amino acid derivative) naturally found in muscle cells. Creatine increases the body’s ability to rapidly produce energy, fuelling your muscles and helping you power through your workout.1

Many athletes supplement with “Creatine Monohydrate,” thereby increasing their muscle creatine concentrations by, on average, about 20 percent.2 It is one of the most studied and successful supplements for enhancing sports performance.3

What are the benefits of taking a Creatine supplement?

It’s not an exaggeration to say supplementing with Creatine Monohydrate can help you maximise your potential and exceed your personal best. Increasing your creatine stores has been shown in numerous clinical trials to help individuals recover from workouts more quickly, build lean muscle mass, improve performance, and increase strength safely over the short and long term.4 

Who knew you don’t have to fall into a radioactive vat of waste to become a super version of yourself?

Why Sports Research® Creatine Monohydrate?

Like all supplements, not all Creatine is made equal. Sports Research has been in the sports nutrition game for decades, and during that time, we’ve committed to providing athletes with proven quality. We are proud to be one of the most trusted brands in science-driven nutraceuticals. 

Each batch of our Creatine Monohydrate is Informed-Sport tested for banned substances and is non-GMO verified, vegan, and gluten-free, so you can trust you’re fuelling with the best.

How should I take Creatine Monohydrate for optimal results?

Combine one scoop into water or your favourite beverage once daily or as a qualified healthcare professional recommends. Studies indicate that taking it daily, including rest days, will help maintain Creatine levels and optimise performance.4

For fast results, consider a loading period for the first five days to accelerate the process of saturating muscle cells with Creatine. To do this, consume four servings daily for the first five days.*

What else can I take to enhance my performance?
