      I just bought a product like this, it wasnt the exact same thing but it was 100% pure creatine monohydrate, just a dif brand. I got to say that i saw amazing results from pretty much aftr the 1st day i used it. i drank 1 tspn wit 8 oz of water in the morning right when i woke up n then iwent 2the gym n workd out then drank the same thing except wit milk n used my protien shake aftr the workout then went to school n i got lots of compliments sayin that i lookd swollen from the arms n chest area. my biceps def increased in size, like a giant baseball. when u mix it wit watr,its tasts a lil nasty @ 1st kinda lik sand watr. but i usually drink it wit more than 8oz of watr that way u dont taste all the creatine at once. i absolutely recommend mixing it with ur protein shake n milk, u dont even taste the creatine n it tastes great, i use champion nutrition whey protein n its great tasting especially with milk! so yea i know i wrote quite a bit n u really need to buy this product! its freakishly cheap n really does give results. really there is no downside to this product. iv had no side effects wit this product. i hope this review helps.. hehee i hope u guys actually read the whole thing too:) yea buy this just dont overdose cuz u will have stomach problems, i did @ 1st cuz i put 2 much creat in the watr cuz i didnt know how much 5 grams was hahaa. dont overdose n it tastes great n really well work! hope this review helps..Laterz:)

      I bought this product to help with muscle gains. The price is great for the amount of product you get. There is no taste, which is a plus. The problem I had with the monohydtrate is it made me feel very bloated, very foul gas, and wreaked overall havok on my stomach. I drank A LOT of water with this and kept drinking more, hoping to alieviate the issues, but with no luck. So be warned you may have stomach issues if you use a monohydrate creatine. I have switched to an ester ethyl and had no stomach problems at all with it. Also I have seen others have had stomach problems with a monohydrate, so just be warned.

      >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2011-02-22
      Your experience is with creatine monohydrate itself, not specifically this product/brand.

      >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2011-02-22
      Your experience is related to the effects of creatine monohydrate itself, not this specific product/brand.

      try ethyl ester or micronized creatine..those maybe a remedy for those stomach issues

      Comments about BodyTech 100% Pure Creatine Monohydrate 5 GM - 32 Ounces Powder:

      This is the first creatine product I've ever used, and I think it is really great. I take 5g once a day with my protein after my strength workout. I've only had the product for a month, and it didn't take me long to notice that I could handle more weight than normally in my exercises. Maybe some of it is placebo, but either way i can't argue with the fact that I've been progressing quicker this month than I have before in any previous month…

      I did read that creatine can make you gain water weight, and BOY, when I looked on the scale after I started using it, it shocked me. I am a pretty small girl, 5ft tall, so just a few lbs difference can seem like a lot. The good thing is, even though the number may be higher, I definitely don't look heavier at all/ it didn't seem to affect my appearance.

      The only bad thing about this product (why I give it 4 stars) is because it doesn't mix with water very well. When I use cold water it even clumps up a bit and sticks to the spoon. But, it seems to be working, and the extra 30 seconds of stirring is hardly a big deal.

          I didn't get much out of product. I did get a sample of beast at the store and felt better tolerance to lifting after using it 1-2 times. I sought out a value for that product and actually have several months of that product. The other sits there.

                      First of all, do NOT listen to people like PHD24 who have no idea what creatine is or how it works. Creatine does not allow your body to absorb protein or anything else. When you workout your body uses ATP (adenosine triphosphate)as fuel for your muscles to work. As the ATP is used it becomes ADP (adensosine diphosphate), which without the third phosphate becomes useles. Your body must replace the phosphate before it can be used again. Enter creatine. Creatine lends one of its phosphate to the ADP thus restoring it to ATP which is then again ready to drive your muscles. Creatine allows your body to convert ADP back into ATP faster, giving you the ability to workout hard and longer than ever before. That being said creatine monohydrate is the best creatine you can take, monohydrate is monohydrate no matter who makes it. This product is pure creatine without any fillers so it will get the job done. For best results drink some grape or orange juice to spike insulin levels to get as much creatine in your cells as possible.

                      Happy lifting.

                          First off I am very much so for creatine monohydrate but everyone needs to read this review so you can become more educated in what your putting into your body.When you say that this product doesnt make you bloated you are basically saying this product doesnt do what it was intened to do at all... creatine monohydrates primary focus is to make you bloated simply so you can absorb more nutrients and more protein! So when you say this product worked great it didnt make me feel bloated at all then you did/are doing something terribly wrong. Creatine monohydrate is the most studied and proven creatine in the world and should be taken over anything else so if you take this and do it right you will feel some bloating and some heaviness but just know this means your body is absorbing nutrients 100% more efficiently and you are getting stronger and possibly gaining muscle masss. I hope this review helped and I hope you all do research on this so you can become more educated on what is being put into your body.

                          Overall, not a bad supplement. It works as advertised, and seems to keep up with other creatine mono supplements. Very good value per serving.

                          My two complaints are that it has an odd almost fishy smell/taste that I haven't seen in other brands, and that it doesn't mix very well. Often when I make shakes with milk in a shaker cup, I end up with a powder at the bottom after my protein has dissolved. I'm sure it's the creatine because I mixed just that with milk and still ended up with the powder settling out somewhat.

                          If you're really on a budget, it's okay, but I personally will be spending a few extra bucks for a better product.

                            This stuff is GreatI started seeing results after the first bucket I went through. Best thing yet you dont have to cycle with this product you can take it for a whole year if you want. The only thing i didnt like about the product is that it has no taste it would be a perfect 5 stars if it had some flavor to it.

We will very much recommend this to our clients when they decide to take Creatine to improve their fitness goals as well. Mixes easily in water and doesn't have a flavor. Will definitely continue purchasing this product.

                                Most creatine is pretty similar, I've tried a few and this isn't really any different. It doesn't blend quite as well as other I have tried, but since it doesn't have any taste it really doesn't matter. Great value for the amount you get. Keeps well too.

                                    I have felt a boost from using the creatine. The product does not mix well AT ALL. I have settled to just using it with a teaspoon so i can actually use it. If the product mixed i would give it four stars.

                                      This creatine product works, it makes my muscles fuller and stronger, which definitely improves my self-confidence. Just make sure you drink plenty of water throughout the day and don't take too much of this. You do not need to load this product. Too much of the creatine will cause stomach upset and acne, and in some cases kidney stones.

                                        This creatine product gets the job done. I mix it with lemonade. My muscles feel pumped and tight and as long as I don't take too much of this stuff, I dont have any side effects. I definitely see a strength and mass increase.

                                        Drink Immediatly after mixing! Dont be like the guy below and make sure you are using it as directed! Creatine is made to be used within an hour of mixing. This is a great product for putting mass on! Be ready to double time on abs if you want to keep them and drink lots and lots of water. Atleast a gallon a day if you want to see any real results.

                                        Does not dissolve in water or protein drink, just sits at the bottom of glass like sand. Bummer because I otherwise love BodyTech products - replaced this with Vitol's Creatine Monohydrate sublingual.

                                        Best Answer: I sent them a question regarding where the creatine is sourced from and was told due to a confidentiality clause they can't say where it's from. That's usually not a good sign if they won't disclose where it's from. So I think I'm going to continue to spend a little bit for for ON's creapure.

                                        Does this product have a shelf life, an experation period?
                                        A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Nov 12, 2013
                                        Best Answer: It took me nearly a year to finish the tub but I saw results the entire time. The consistency of the powder changed a bit (e.g. clumping) towards the end of the period of which I was using it but it was still good. To answer your question, I don't think this product would expire before you were able to finish using it, if using it on a regular basis.

                                        I take only once a day, followed by 8oz of water during the day and have to take 8 glasses of water without the product?

                                        Best Answer: Regular dosag is 5 grams per day. I take it in my protein shake after working out and on off days. You can drink it with apple juice if you like. You should normally be drinking about a gallon of water a day anyway. If you feel you need to preload you can take about 4 to 7 gram doses twice a day for one week. Studies show its not entirely necessary.

                                        The label says it's not for children. I have three boys who are stellar athletes. They are 13, 15, and 17. The two younger are the same height and weight of 115 lbs., and 5'7". My concern is them, and if they would benefit? They are tough, but very thin. They are all football players, and would do better with a little more mass. My 17 year old is a no-brainer at 6'1'' and 150lbs.

                                        Best Answer: To me, and this is personal preference from a person with a Biochemistry background, taking a supplement as a young man is not wise. Not necessarily because the supplement is bad, but because the young man has not learned to properly use it. For example, when taking creatine, your water intake has to be stellar. This insures that the creatine does not build up in the kidneys (which can cause serious problems). I have used creatine for years and LOVE the results, but I am extremely diligent about water (approx 2 gallons a day).

                                        Consistency would be another issue I would be concerned about with younger men. Making sure they aren't sporadic in taking creatine, Sticking to the regimen is necessary.

                                        Creatine is amazing. I love using it, but I am diligent about using it. I would only be concerned that younger men wouldn't have the mindset to use it properly.

                                        Best Answer: I generally take 5g before a workout. Also, every three months I will take 10 days away from it in order to detox my liver. Some say it's not necessary but it works for me.

                                        Can I mix this with my whey protein which also contains aminos like glutamine and arginine?

                                        Best Answer: Yes you can. Creatine does work best if you take it with some non acidic juice, most people use apple juice. I have a banana with my protein and creatine after a workout. The insulin spike will help drive the creatine into your muscles.

                                        Is this safe? And does it actually work?

                                        Best Answer: It may be safe, but you can overdose on it. I have noticed it appears in many different pre and post workout products. My doctor told me to stop taking it because it was overloading my kidney functions.

                                        1. what is the loading faze, and do I need to do it?

                                        2. Do I need to cycle on and off this, and if so what needs to be done?

                                        3. Do I need an estrogen blocker?

                                        4. I do not mind gaining weight, but I want it to be muscle and loose fat, what should my cardio plan be with this?

                                        1. You don't need to load. Take the 5g dose daily.
                                        2. I, personally, have never cycled off of Creatine.
                                        3. No.
                                        4. You don't need cardio do lose fat. Cardio is a great way to increase muscular endurance but what you eat every day and how much of it you eat will dictate your fat gain. There are plenty of resources out there to help you with your nutritional requirements. Check out bodybuilding dot com.

                                        Best Answer: Hello fritz,

                                        To my knowledge is not necessary to load up for the first time users, and on my personnel usage I don’t like to load on any supplements. I like to go the slow but effective route when it comes to taking any wide variable of protein and/or supplements. I strongly believe that the body needs to slowly adapt to them one at a time. Currently I do take and mix protein like whey, casein, soy, BCAAs, glutamine, beta-alanine and of course creatine. All of these are highly recommended before and after workouts for maximum results. I recommend to simply follow as directed in the label. I hope this help you.

                                        Miguel S.

                                        Does this product consist of only Creapure and no fillers?
                                        Gregorio C on Oct 26, 2014
                                        Best Answer: Never heard of "creapure". This product contains 100% creatine monohydrate, which after a Google search found that "creapure" is also 100% creatine monohydrate but developed to the "highest standards". I've been taking this product for a few years and have no complaints. Be aware tha supplements are not regulated by FDA and therefore companties come up with marketing to try and posture their product as being better in some way.

                                        As this product presents itself as 100% creating monohydrate there should be no fillers.

                                        Best Answer: Creatine Monohydrate is a great product if you are a serious, heavy lifter. There are no recorded side effects from taking this product.

                                        I'm taking a preworkout now, and don't know if I should take creatine with the pre workout or if I should not take the preworkout with this. Is it useful to take both?

                                        Best Answer: This is as good as any on the market. As far as strength and power go; those will come with consistent training and proper diet.

                                        Is this product made from CreaPure?
                                        A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Oct 3, 2013
                                        Best Answer: No. The Body Tech creatine is Pfanstiehl brand... a trademark of Wilke International. It is produced in the US. That being said though, this is great stuff and I've been using it for several years now. Great results.

                                        Best Answer: Judging from the majority of research if you consistently take 5g daily you will likely gain between 5-10 lbs. of muscle depending on how much creatine you're already getting thru diet. Will this make you a better basketball player? Probably not. However it's fairly inexpensive and there is a ton of research showing a host of health benefits to creatine supplementation including a mild cognitive enhancement. The only good reason not to supplement is if your diet is already very rich in rare meat and seafood, as this would likely mean that your creatine levels are already high. Don't take more than the recommended amount; there's no greater effect from doing so. Drink it with plenty of water.

                                        I ask question about BodyTech Creatine Monohydrate and What for about cycle on and off? How many take creatine per day and week? can be take use mix with creatine, BodyTech 100% pure glutamine powder and any kind whey protein shake post work out?
                                        William R on Jul 28, 2013
                                        Best Answer: General dosing is 5g a day. A typical cycle is a 12 week on 4 week off cycle, but some people, such as myself, prefer to not cycle. It's personal preference really. Also, it is perfectly fine to mix with your glutamine and whey post workout, just be sure to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.

                                        Is everyone taking the recommended amount or more? less? if so , what are you basing it on? thanks

                                        Best Answer: The recommended dose is 5 mg. Taking mor is a waste unless you weigh 200 lbs or more. Then you would take 7 to 10 mg in two separate doses as anything more than 5 mg at a time won't be absorbed. I take mine in my post workout shake.ski

                                        I'm new to creatine, so are you able to skip the loading phase and just go straight to the maintenance phase?
