Creatine is a small peptide compound composed of L-Arginine, Glycine, and L-Methionine, it is found in cardiac and muscle tissues of animals and humans, and acts as a reservoir for phosphate in a creatine phosphate or phosphocreatine form. Cells in the body known as adenosine triphosphate (ATP) are used for energy. Upon use it gets converted to ADP or AMP, there is an protein, adenosine monophosphate kinase (AMPK), that facilitates the conversion of AMP to ADP conversions. The creatine form found in the cell reservoirs help regenerate ADP to ATP so refuels the metabolic processes.
The process of supplementing creatine increases the overall pool of creatine and phosphocreatine in the cells. This increase results in improved regeneration of ADP to ATP conversions and increases cellular energy storage. Resulting in improved power output, increased high-intensiy exercise capacity and promotes lean body mass. Supplementing Creatine with Beta-Alanine has shown to have a synergistic effect with improved performance and strength.
Creatine Monohydrate is the naturally occurring form of creatine and is the most cost effective for supplementing. Nausea, cramping, stomach and digestive irritation can occur when not taken with liquids and when too much of a dose is taken all at once. It is best to split high loading phase dosages throughout the day to avoid stomach and digestive irritation as well as improve absorption. Taking with meals can also reduce the occurrence of cramping or stomach irritation.
Creatine can be supplemented through a loading phase to saturate creatine levels in the body. During this loading phase, 20 grams of creatine intake for 5-7 days and only 2g afterwards on a daily basis to retain the elevated levels of creatine. If performed in a cycling pattern, 20 grams for 5-7 days followed by three weeks of 2 grams daily. For most users, 5 grams on an daily basis will be more than sufficient in improving strength and endurance while training.
Our brand of Creatine Monohydrate is micronized (200 Mesh) for improved absorption and easier mixing with liquids.

If you're still buying stuff from GNC or bodybuilding.com, or anything but this you are wasting your time. This is hands down the highest quality for the lowest price creatine you are going to find.

I'm not much of a bodybuilder but I know creatine has other benefits such a skeletal strengthening and phosphate reserves. This creatine is smooth and energizing. I would avoid taking it when you want to sleep. It has a subtle way of keeping you going without a buzz effect...

This product reminds me of when Creatine first came on the market. Everyone wanted you to buy their product, and at the time, they made it at a higher quality than most companies today. This my friend reminds me of the pumps, strength, stamina, and results i used to get with Creatine without all the stomach cramps! It is by far the purest and best Creatine I have ever purchased, and at that price.............you can't beat it! Great job Hard Rhino for putting this on your site!!!

Just as expected: a high quality powder that mixes easily into water and other beverages. Gives me a sustained boost of calm mental energy that modafinil and caffeine/l-theanine just can't match. Will order again.
