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 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."
"At 40 years old I am looking to lean up and put a little size back on. I am running more and working out 5-6 days a week. I take a scoop in the morning, one before I work out and one post work out. I feel like Vitacost creatine is giving me the results i was hoping for. I still put in the hard work but I don't feel as sore the next day. I have had awesome strength improvements."
"Creatine was something that I was always skeptical of and didn't introduce it into my diet until this year when a friend who is very knowledgeable mentioned that he has been supplementing with it for years, and I am very happy with the results. I took one serving of this product following every workout in my protein shake during my bulk from September until the end of March. The goal was to gain mass, and I certainly accomplished that. I went from about 175 to 191, and it was a lean 190. I noticed the size increase in my upper body within weeks of taking the product. I have tried to bulk before, but always without success. This product gave me exactly the results I was after. Creatine helps to sustain strength and energy in the gym, which obvious allows for more reps and a higher overall intensity. The pump is great, and you leave the gym feeling satisfied. I am going to continue to use this product through the spring and summer as my workouts become more geared towards cutting and defining. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for the extra aid in lean muscle and strength gains."
