Creatine is the most-used nutrient in the world for improving muscle strength, power and size. It has more research proving its effectiveness and safety than any other nutrient used for fitness with thousands of double-blind studies backing it.
Why Creatine Monohydrate?
Creatine Monohydrate is the most widely used form of creatine, and the form used in most research studies. All the positive effects we associate with creatine use (increases in muscular strength, size, and power) come from studies of creatine monohydrate.
Manufacturers of other forms of creatine claim that their versions are better but the research is with creatine monohydrate with the only concerns being the grit and non solubility of creatine monohydrate. This is why other versions of monohydrate exist, like micronized and now instantized creatine monohydrate.
WHAT FORM OF CREATINE MONOHYDRATE IS BEST, Regular, Micronized or Instantized?
Creatine Monohydrate is absorbed best at the muscle level. The problem is how long it takes to get to the muscles to create anabolism and the gains you want.
If you have ever taken straight creatine, you understand the problem because there is a gritty taste that is explained many times as sandy or like dirt. This is because the Creatine Monohydrate is made based on a mesh size and the bigger the mesh (smaller the number), the larger the molecule of creatine. This is also why some people quit taking creatine because it might cause an upset stomach from trying to break down the larger creatine molecules that cause the gritty taste.
1. Creatine Monohydrate uses a 60-80 mesh size to be created, is large, and not very soluble. This is the most sandy-tasting form of Creatine Monohydrate and why some people feel bloated or have stomach issues.
BECAUSE OF THE PROBLEMS OF INDIGESTION AND MOUTH FEEL, THE INDUSTRY CREATED MICRONIZED CREATINE.
2. Micronized creatine is a form of creatine monohydrate with a micro particle size. The particles are many times smaller than the regular creatine monohydrate. The only drawback is that micronized creatine monohydrate is more expensive. Micronized Creatine Monohydrate uses a 200 mesh which mixes easier, is more soluble and less gritty. Still, it isn’t completely soluble. Ample leftovers sink to the bottom. That's your hard-earned money sitting there.
FINALLY A COMPANY CAME ALONG AND BROUGHT THE WORLD'S ONLY INSTANTIZED CREATINE MONOHYDRATE TO THE MARKET IT IS COMPLETELY SOLUBLE, FIXING ALL ISSUES WITH OTHER MONOHYDRATES.
3. Instantized Creatine Monohydrate uses a 500+ mesh and is completely soluble, which no other Creatine can claim. The instantized form is quickly completely absorbed. It does not have to be broken down and its surface area is much greater. It is available on the cellular level just like the water. (WATCH VIDEO).
The added benefit of Instantized Creatine Monohydrate from Gains in Bulk is that they are the manufacturer and only sell direct. This means you not only get the world's best and only Instantized Creatine Monohydrate, but you also pay less than what the cheap creatines sell for.
Plant-Based Creatine? WHAT????
It is true. Creatine can be made from pure plant sources, which creates the added benefit of being created from foods, instead of chemicals. Instantized Creatine from Gains also carries with it the only nationally certified “VEGAN” seal proving its sourcing. Here is how it works:
Creatine is made from sarcosine (or its salts) and cyanamide, which are combined in a reactor with catalyst compounds to turn them from two separate chemicals into Creatine Monohydrate. Both Sarcosine and Cyanamide can be attained from cruciferous vegetables, fermentation, from animals, or from straight synthetic chemical compounds. Gains in Bulk's Instantized Creatine comes from a vegan source and registered as such.
MORE GAIN-CREATING FACTS ABOUT CREATINE:
Creatine itself is the most widely used performance nutrient and has been on the market for decades. Instantized Creatine was brought to the US market in November 2015 by the Gains in Bulk company and as of 2018 is still the ONLY company to sell it in the United States. Instantized Creatine has no sand-mouth feel like regular or Micronized Creatine does.
IS CREATINE SAFE?
YES. The studies indicate that supplementation with creatine for prolonged periods of time using large doses is safe. One study concluded that supplementation from nine (9) weeks up to five (5) years did not adversely affect renal function. The largest safety concern with creatine is most likely the quality of the product. Creatine is manufactured from sarcosine and cyanamide. During the production of creatine, contaminants such as dicyandiamide, dihydrotriazines, creatinine, and various ions are produced. When buying creatine, ask if it contains any contaminants like dicyandiamide or dihydrotriazines. If they can't prove their form of creatine doesn’t, don’t buy it. Another study also examined muscle damage, hepatic (liver) and renal (kidney) function, and found no adverse effects from creatine supplementation.
INSTANTIZED CREATINE IS MORE SOLUBLE AND BETTER ABSORBED:
Instantized Creatine is the fastest dissolving and highest absorbed Creatine in the world. Instantized Creatine Monohydrate uses a 500+ mesh and is completely soluble which no other Creatine can claim. The instantized form is completely absorbed quickly because it does not have to be broken down and its surface area is much greater ensuring complete absorption. It is available on the cellular level, just like the water.
