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.

Your experience is with creatine monohydrate itself, not specifically this product/brand.

    This size pure creatine monohydrate is a good deal for a good product. I use 5g daily, so it lasts me quite a while. It's still as gritty as any creatine monohydrate, but I expect that from the product.

    Don't get me wrong, this product works in my opinion. However, it's flat out terrible to drink. It doesn't mix at all and is tough to swallow, so I will spending a little more for a better product next time.

      Comments about BodyTech Creatine Monohydrate 100% Pure (5 GM) - 906 Grams Powder:

      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.

          Comments about BodyTech Creatine Monohydrate 100% Pure (5 GM) - 906 Grams Powder:

          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.

          Comments about BodyTech Creatine Monohydrate 100% Pure (5 GM) - 906 Grams Powder:

          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.

                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.

                      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.

                          I decided to try creatine again after a few trys without much success. Today I tried this Body Tech brand and am VERY EXCITED to finally find a creatine product that works for me!! I feel turbo charged! Creatine is amazing. If your current creatine product is not working, return it for another brand until you find one that works for you. You'll be glad you did... Good Luck Everyone!

                            Just finished the loading stage and have seen great results, gained 10lbs in my first week using my normal diet and work out routine. I have already noticed a difference in size after 4 work outs. The only negative is that you do feel a little bloated but the positive out weigh this.

                            If your looking to put some size on in a short period this is a great product when used with diet and lifting.

                              Basing this off of one use as I know I will get results from it. Bottom line this stuff mixes the best. Never any grains at the bottom and it sits well in my stomach. I can't wait for time to elapse so I can begin to see the results.

                                      This supplement really gives positive results if taken correctly with the right diet and workout. Also, I think it's important people should know how much of this to take depending on your body weight because it's not the same serving size for everyone. Your supplemental daily creatine intake based on your weight should be as follows > 180 pounds Ð 25 grams >150 Ð 180 pounds Ð 20 Ð 25 grams >140 Ð 150 pounds Ð 15 Ð 20 grams < 140 pounds Ð 15 grams

                                          Creatine is the most debated supplement out there and Monohydrate form is the best form of creatine out there! Bonus for users is that it is the cheapest form of creatine also!! This shows results but needs time to work so be patient! LOL Thank you vitamin shoppe for best prices out there!!

                                                      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.

                                                      Your experience is with creatine monohydrate itself, not specifically this product/brand.

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

                                                          Miguel S: Hello Johnathan,
                                                          I personally use 5 grams before and after workouts, but none for non workout days. I heard that too much of it can cause to retain water and cause a beer belly. But then again I haven't look into it, so I suggest just to use it before and after workouts. Hope this helps.
                                                          Regards,

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. Dec 4, 2013

                                                          Brian D: 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. Jan 24, 2014

                                                          Carmen N: Hi Kenny,
                                                          I'm not sure I understand your question but if you're asking if you need to drink 9 glasses of water total if you take this product I don't think that's necessary. Its good to drink lots of water during the day but not because you take this product. 8oz of water is more than plenty following your creatine dosage.

                                                          Norman B: I take 5 grams post workout. As for water intake; the rule of thumb is 60% of your body weight in ounces. Example: 200lb *.6 = 120 oz of water per day.

                                                          So that means 15 8oz glasses of water per day.

                                                          Of course, this is all assuming you workout regularly.

                                                          Ray C: Yes, creatine draws water from all around your body and essentially deposits it into you're muscles, so the more water you drink, the better. I'm 6'2" and weigh 165, I aim to drink 100 oz of water per day while on creatine. Jan 24, 2014

                                                          Brian D: 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. Mar 5, 2013

                                                          Thanks! Mar 5, 2013

                                                          Sean T: No. Creatine will degrade more quickly into creatinine if it's mixed into acidic solution, but stomach acid is much more acidic than any beverage. Mix it with whatever you want to, just don't leave it sitting around for a long time after mixing it up. No matter what beverage you mix your creatine into once it's mixed it will start to degrade unless a stabilizer is added a la liquid creatine. Aug 25, 2013
                                                          Miguel S: Hello Emma,
                                                          Yes you can. In fact it's recommended to take whey, casein, BCAA's and creatine together for maximum results after workouts. I personally take all those plus glutamine and beta-alanine. Pre-workouts I take whey, soy, BCAA's, creatine, glutamine and beta-alanine. Hope this helps.

                                                          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?

                                                          Norman B: David,

                                                          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.

                                                          Miguel S: 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.

                                                          Brian D: In the long run it won't make much difference. I used 5 mg in the morning and another 5 in the evening for one week. Then just 5 mg once a day. Cycling off it or reloading every couple of months isn't necessary but is recommended. There is tons of research on creatine. So do what you feel comfortable with.

                                                          Sean T: 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. Aug 25, 2013

                                                          Pat S: 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. Sep 14, 2013

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 May 31, 2013
