      Vitamin Shoppe's creatine monohydrate is the best product on the market, especially for the price. Unlike many preworkout supplements, you won't feel creatine "kick in," but what you will see are consistent gains in both endurance and strength over time. I cycle creatine for three months on and two months off, and when I'm cycled off, I notice clear reductions in endurance and strength. There is a lot of information about creatine, especially about how to use it. Before using this product, I highly recommend looking online at a reputable site about how to load and maintain. In addition, there is some controversy over whether or not creatine helps with endurance. Personally, I find that it's as helpful--if not more helpful--with boosting endurance as it is with strength. I'm in my 40s, so it is possible that in younger men and women, there may not be much if any gains in endurance. One of the best things about this specific product is that it's pure creatine, allowing you to get an incredibly high number of servings for the price. In addition, the powder is very, very fine, allowing it to mix really well in drinks--I've even added it to ice cream. Finally, other creatine products have caused me to have diarrhea, BUT THIS ONE DOES NOT UPSET MY GI TRACT IN ANY WAY. As far as negatives go, this product is so basic, so simple, so effective, and so fairly priced, it's hard to come up with something negative to say.

        So I started using creatine a few weeks ago and I could tell the difference. My bench press gained 5 pounds and could do more reps. I feel fuller in my muscles and gives great energy for next day gym session. Look no more this is the best product you can get!

          Comments about BodyTech 100% Pure Creatine Monohydrate 5 GM - 18 Ounces Powder:

          I have used a lot of the big brand name creatine supplements, like Optimum Nutrition, Beast, and Muscle Tech, and this product is just as good, if not better. It dissolves very easily and is not gritty when you drink it. I have been using it for about 3 months and have noticed improvements in my strength and size. This product is proof that you don't need to spend extra money on name brands in order to get results and a quality product.

          Comments about BodyTech 100% Pure Creatine Monohydrate 5 GM - 18 Ounces Powder:

          I take 5g a day and it works great. About half way through the loading phase I noticed my recovery between sets was incredible. After about 20 seconds of rest, the dead feeling after a hard set was already gone and I was ready to hit it again. My strength also increased by 5 pounds on most dumbbell exercises almost immediately. Amazing bang for your buck as well. Only thing is it doesn't mix well, but I also haven't come across a creatine supplement that does, so it isn't a big deal.

            I barely started taking this creatine about a month ago. I have already noticed big improvements. Most notably, in the added weight on my bench press and the reps as well. Extremely pleased with the product. I will definitely keep taking this. I mix it with my protein shake and it does not affect the taste much if at all.

              for those of you who do not understand what Creatine is, please read up before you post negatively. this is not a "Preworkout".

              This product is perfect. It is micronized and once mixed with my protein shake, I can not taste anything. I've also used it the old school why by mixing it into hot tea or coffee to let it disolve and there is absolutely no taste to it. I can tell it's good quality creatine by the pumps. I get no bloated stomach like from some of the cheaper products. with this cycled into my normal suppliments I get the few extra reps I'm looking for to gain the growth I need. This is GREAT QUALITY CREATINE

              This is a very good creatine product. I'm trying this one to compare to C4 since it's cheaper. While I don't get as pumped (probably due to the caffeine or nitrates in C4), I still get that energy boost from the creatine, so it does what I want it to do. I only took out 1 star because this stuff doesn't dissolve very well. I followed the instructions of 8 oz of water or non-acidic juice and even when trying larger amounts, it still doesn't completely dissolve, so I have to get the rest with a little bit of water and swirling it around.

                          I've been taking it for two weeks and have been noticing improvements. I should of started taking this stuff years ago! The taste isn't that great since there is no flavoring but it isn't bad, but since there is no flavoring that bulks up the weight of the powder you get more creatine per serving than other brands so the container lasts a lot longer. Well worth it! I love that it is 100% creatine and nothing else.

                                  I added this in to my workout routine and i have noticed that i have been steadily gaining more and more, and its a noticable difference than before i was using it. i couldnt belive how well this was working especially concidering what i had to pay for it.

                                      I bought this the first time I ever used straight creatine monohydrate and it had favorable results. This is a good product for a great value. This is all the creatine you need, no additives or insane carbs. Definately added strength, not an insane amount, but a steady progression.

                                          I bought this about 3 years ago and it worked wonders. I gained about 10 pounds taking this and ON 100% whey. They changed the formula since then. It used to be grainy and difficult to mix in juice. Now its more of a powder and easy to mix and drink. I've already gained 8 pounds in about 4 months which is a lot for me. It doesn't upset my stomach at all and its cheap!!

                                          I am not able to mix this product with water, the powder just stays at the bottom of the glass even after stirring it many times. is there something else i need to do?
                                          Domingo S on Dec 1, 2012
                                          Best Answer: It doesn't thoroughly dissolve in water. Mixing it with water just makes it easier to consume. It's best to still have the liquid still swirling while you drink, otherwise the creatine will settle at the bottom.

                                          does this make you gain water weight?
                                          A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Jun 4, 2013
                                          Best Answer: If you "load" your system (which most will suggest that you do) it will ABSOLUTELY cause water retention. All creatine products do. Loading your system (for example) would be taking 5g twice a day and then lowering to once a day after after 2-3 days when your system is loaded--that is you have creatine supplies built up. I haven't taken it any other way. It does work, particularly for muscle mass increase, which may consequently cause increased calorie burn and fat loss.

                                          Best Answer: Definitely take it before a workout. It's designed to give you a little extra power during a workout.

                                          Best Answer: I'm no physian. I would strongly recommend that you seek a physician' s input. My gut feeling is that you will be told not to take it.

                                          Best Answer: Creatine dosing can vary by body weight but many agree on loading with as much as 20 grams (3-4 5 gram servings) per day for the first week and then maintaining with 5 grams (1 serving) per day for the however long you choose to take it.
