Promotes muscle development and energy.*. What is creatine? Creatine is a non-essential amino acid that is an important source of chemical energy for muscle contraction.* Dietary sources include meat fish and other animal products but creatine may also be formed in the liver kidney and pancreas from the amino acids glycine arginine and methionine. . Once creatine reaches the muscles it’s converted into phosphocreatine (creatine phosphate) and ultimately becomes the body’s primary energy source—adenosine triphosphate (ATP).* Muscle concentrations of creatine are lower in older and middle-aged adults and may explain why they respond so noticeably to creatine. . How does creatine support health? Enhances muscle performance during high intensity exercise.*. When combined with physical training creatine supplementation leads to increases in lean body mass.*.

"I've been weightlifting for over 5 years now, so it's safe to say I've used a lot of different supps over the years. While I will say some things you just have to pay more for quality, creatine isn't one of them. This is your basic, get the job done stuff, and it does it perfectly. Helps my muscles stay hydrated, in turn keeping soreness levels after heavy lifting under control, and helps build muscle over time. Yeah the grainy texture isn't ideal, but the Vitacost brand seems to actually be less grainy then some of the big names like Optimum, and Muscle Pharm."
"I have used several types of creatine, and I must say this one has given me the best results! The loading is always the toughest portion of taking creatine at first, but this one mixes easily, and doesn't end up being a chore to wash down. Will definitely buy again!"
"I have been using creatine for the last 20 years or so from various different manufacturers and this Vitacost brand is as good as the best I ever used and the price is a fraction of what other companies want. Also, that left over grit is part of the deal. All creatine is like that. Just fill the glass with water after your workout drink and drink that...no waste."
"I've ventured off to try the "in" product from time to time using many different creatine products over the years and this one still gives me the best results. Vitacost uses Creapure licensed creatine so you know you're getting high quality and the price/serving can't be beat."
"Within 1 week I could notice a major difference in size and strength. I did 4 scoops for 5 days and then 1 scoop for 3-4 weeks and then I'll cycle off of it for 2 weeks and start over with the 4 scoops."
