Creatine Monhydrate is one of the most studied sports supplements on the market. It has been proven time and time again as an effective supplement for strength and recovery.
Creatine Loading Phase
To get the most out of creatine monohydrate you should load on it initially.
During the “Loading phase” it is recommended that you take 5g, 5 times a day, for 5 days. Space the dosage throughout the day.
When you move to your “maintenance phase” take 2 x 5g doses per day.
One dose first thing in the morning with breakfast, and another dose immediately post-workout with your post-workout meal or shake.
On non-workout days, take your second dose at any time during the day but try to space out the doses.
It is recommended that you ‘çycle’ your dosage of creatine, meaning that you should take a break.
We suggest that after 6 weeks users take a break from creatine for 1 – 2 weeks. Then proceed with the Maintenance dose again.
How to take it
Mix 5 Grams (about a tablespoon) of Creatine Monohydrate with water or a shake.
For best results, take Creatine Monohydrate with meals or a shake that contains carbohydrates – this will help your body better absorb this supplement. The other optimal time is straight after training.
Why take Creatine Monohydrate
Creatine Monohydrate helps supply energy to muscle cells by increasing the formation of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) in the body.
Increased ATP causes increased muscle energy. This results in greater muscle force and improved recovery.
The benefit of creatine includes the ability to train harder and recover faster. Combine this increase in training intensity and muscle recovery with appropriate dieting and training, and Creatine Monohydrate will help you build muscle.
How long does it take to work?
Within 2 weeks you should experience great results from using Creatine Monohydrate. You will notice faster muscle recovery and your muscles will look and feel fuller.
You will continue to experience physique changing results on an ongoing basis provided you stick to a good training and diet plan.
At Nutrition Supplements we recommend BSC Creatine Monohydrate as a great option.
