FAQs

Why should I take Creatine?

If you’re looking to take your training to the next level and improve your strength, endurance, and explosive movements, than Creatine is perfect for you. Creatine’s strength and explosive movement benefits make it especially beneficial for sprinters, powerlifters, and combat athletes. Creatine is primarily stored in the skeletal muscle as phosphocreatine (PCr) which provides a rapid supply for the re-synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The ATP energy system is the pathway your body favours during maximal effort, short duration exercise, making Creatine ideal for low volume, high intensity training. Creatine is also being investigated for its potential benefits for those suffering from Parkinson’s disease (www.medicalnewstoday.com/info/parkinsons-disease).

What is Creatine?

Creatine is one of the vital compounds utilized to feed the energy system during strength training and explosive movements. Creatine is a compound derived from the amino acids methionine, glycine and arginine and is primarily stored in the skeletal muscle. It is naturally occurring in animal-based products including meat, fish and eggs. Widely renowned as the number one supplement for improving performance in the gym, Creatine is known to improve muscle strength, enhance explosive movements, improve cardiovascular capacity and assist high performance training. Creatine is one of the most widely studied sports supplements, with many studies supporting these claims. For a review of these studies, check out the International Society of Sports Nutrition’s study here. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2048496/

When should I take Creatine?

Like many supplements, the optimal time to take Creatine remains controversial. Subsequently, we advise to choose the supplement strategy that you are most likely to stay consistent with. Creatine can be taken pre-workout, post-workout, or on your rest days. The supplement strategies for each are listed below.

When should I take Creatine?

Like many supplements, the optimal time to take Creatine remains controversial. Subsequently, we advise to choose the supplement strategy that you are most likely to stay consistent with. Creatine can be taken pre-workout, post-workout, or on your rest days. The supplement strategies for each are listed below.

Pre-workout:
If consuming Creatine prior to your workout works best for you, Creatine should be consumed between 30 - 60 minutes prior to training. This will help replenish your phosphocreatine (PCr) levels and help prepare your muscles for a heavy training session ahead. Taking creatine with carbohydrates pre-workout will assist your body in replenishing it’s glycogen stores, which can later be utilised to improve athletic performance during prolonged exercise.

Post-workout:
Following an intense training session, key nutrients in the body, including creatine, are at their lowest. Subsequently, within the first thirty minutes following your training, your body is ready for maximal nutrient uptake. Adding creatine to your post-workout shake will help feed your starving muscle tissue, assist the recovery process and support an increase in muscle mass.

Rest day:
Supplementing Creatine on your non-training days will help maintain your supplement levels. This can be taken with water, with juice or with another liquid of your choice. If you skip Creatine supplementation on your days off, don’t stress it won’t have a significant effect on what you’ve already accomplished.

Can I mix Creatine with other supplements?

Creatine can and often is used with other supplements. Creatine is regularly included in pre-workout and post-workout formulas. When stacking Creatine with other supplements, you should first check if the other supplement includes Creatine as to not consume too much. An ideal post-workout combination is True Creatine Monohydrate and True WPI90.

What does True Creatine Monohydrate taste like?

True Creatine Monohydrate is design to mix well with water and subsequently has a neutral taste, making it perfect for consuming on it’s own or stacking with other supplements.

What is the difference between Creatine and a pre workout blend?

Creatine can be used as part of a pre-workout blend but is not designed to be a sole pre-workout supplement by itself. Pre-workout blends often include a protein source, beta-alanine, stimulants such as caffeine and occasionally performance supporting supplements such as creatine.

What is the difference between True Creatine Monohydrate (Creapure®) and regular Creatine Monohydrate?

Creatine can be used as part of a pre-workout blend but is not designed to be a sole pre-workout supplement by itself. Pre-workout blends often include a protein source, beta-alanine, stimulants such as caffeine and occasionally performance supporting supplements such as creatine. Creapure® is produced in Germany by a company called Alzchem who are the world’s leading authority when it comes to the manufacturing of creatine monohydrate. Through Alzchem’s treatment processes they guarantee a purity of 99.99% creatine monohydrate in every batch they produce. This level of purity guarantees that when you take this product there will be no unnecessary impurities such as Creatinine, dicyandiamide and dihydrotriazine, which ultimately maximises the potency per serve.

How do I take Creatine?

For the best results, your Creatine serving size should be increased for the first 5 days to 0.3g per kilogram of bodyweight. This protocol is often referred to as the ‘loading phase’. After five days, you will only require a maintenance dose of 3-5g per day. Creatine can be consumed pre-workout, post-workout, or on your rest days.

Can I take True Creatine Monohydrate without taking a protein supplement?

Yes. Unlike many products on the market, True Creatine Monohydrate has a guaranteed 99.99% purity, meaning it mixes well and boasts a neutral taste.

What are the side effects of Creatine?

There are a number of potential side effects of Creatine, however when consumed correctly, they are unlikely. These may include, muscle cramping, nausea, dehydration, weight gain (due to water retention) and dizziness.

How will Creatine affect my weight?

Initially, when consuming high levels of creatine for the first 5 days, it is likely you will gain weight through water retention, approximately 1-2kg at most. It is not uncommon for individuals to maintain the water weight whilst continuing to supplement Creatine, as water is pulled to the muscles. However, once the Creatine cycle stops your weight will likely reduce as the muscle water retention reduces.

If weight gain from water retention is not ideal for your situation, you can skip the loading phase and start directly on the maintenance dose of 3-5g per day. If you chose this method, ensure that you continue supplementation for at least three weeks for optimal benefits.

How can I benefit from taking Creatine as a beginner?

Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate or advanced athlete, Creatine will assist explosive movements, improve strength, enhance endurance, and muscle mass. Creatine will also help assist recovery and reduce DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Syndrome).
