Everyone that’s working out should be taking this stuff. Gives me more energy and can push more reps. There is a loading phase where you will gain some water weight. For me it was about 5 lbs. Makes my muscles look and feel fuller though so it’s worth it. Optimum Nutrition has been my go to brand and they have yet to let me down.

Me gusto porque no se siente cuando lo tomas muy fácil de preparar.

I’ve been using this product for months now while I attempt to get the rest of my weight off of me. I used to be 320 pounds and lost 100 unaided by supplements. I did it all through intensive exercise and a caloric deficit. When I officially hit 100 pounds lost in December of 2021, I decided to grab some creatine to aid in keeping the muscle I already had while I tried to get the rest of the fat off of my body (along with 1 to 1.2 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight and keeping my other macros in check). This stuff has been amazing. Not only have I continued to lose weight through my caloric deficit and intensive weightlifting regime, but I have also kept a majority of my muscle and have GAINED a substantial amount of muscle as well! At the time of writing this review (5/19/2022), I have lost over 130 pounds and am sitting right around 188 pounds.This is not a miracle substance. You have to put work in at the gym to see gains and religiously take 5g a day (I just mix it in my pre-workout). I don’t believe in a loading phase because of the research that I have followed so I just started taking 5g and have been for 5 months now. This has helped me so much in getting the fat off of my body while cutting, keeping the muscle I already had, and gaining a LOT of new muscle. I am incredibly happy and will continue using this for the foreseeable future.Last little thing, I’ve been seeing a lot of 1-star reviews for this saying things like “does not dissolve in water” and “like drinking sand”. You must understand that Creatine Monohydrate has incredibly poor water solubility and will not dissolve at all in cold water. The only advice I have for you is to man up and just drink it (or woman up! and or non-binary up! You got this!). You WILL see results, but you must take it religiously and you must consistently push yourself in the gym along with keeping your diet in check. Overall, I love this creatine and will be continuing to take it. It’s been an amazing help and has boosted my confidence.

Well there is no flavor which is the point. It’s very effective. Great amount of uses for the price.

Product was exactly as described. Flavor was tasteless and very easy to swallow. When mixed it took a bit to fully dissolve, but no big deal. Helped this old man’s performance improve at the gym.

I have tried many creatine products over the years, An this one by far is the best healthiest one I have ever had! Worth every penny and will be getting a subscription to regularly get this product. Recommend this product 10 out of 10 ??

I like the flavor, good taste, let’s see the results
it definitely works. increased strength & energy resulting in heavier lifting, thus equaling muscle growth. I am a woman, so I didn’t enjoy the bloating and puffiness throughout my physique. I stopped taking it after 2 weeks because i was so bloated that i was becoming short of breath and it was uncomfortable, clothes weren’t fitting either. frequent urination, like every 30 min the urge arises. i took the recommended dose. I may try splitting up the dose throughout the day or taking less, but i’m afraid to take it again.

Couldn’t really tell you if it works or not. Just been steadily ingesting it and seeing gains overall. Not sure if it’s this, or the exercise, or both… but definitely put it in a shake – I couldn’t get the taste out my nose when I tried snorting it.
