Creapure™ is arguably the highest quality creatine monohydrate available today.
Renown nutrition writer Will Brink concludes:
“As for me, I will make sure my creatine comes only from companies and distributors who sell creatine made by the large German company.” ‘What’s in Your Creatine?’ by Will Brink.
Degussa, formally SKW, is the German manufacturer of Creapure™ creatine monohydrate.
- Each batch is HPLC tested for purity as well as microbiological tests.
- Each batch comes with a signed Certificate of Analysis.
When comparing prices with other products be sure that the label states that they contain Creapure creatine, otherwise assume that a lesser grade (and cheaper) was used
Benefits of Creapure Creatine Monohydrate
Creatine monohydrate is safe. A recent study found that oral supplementation with creatine monohydrate has no long-term (5 year) detrimental effects on kidney or liver functions (Mayhew et al, 2002). Also see Schilling et al, 2000 and EU Scientific Committee on Foods’ .
Hi-glycemic carbs like dextrose and maltodextrin (also high GI carbs combined with protein) increase the rate of creatine up-take by muscle through raised insulin levels (see Steenge et al, 2000).
Creatine is stable at least to 97°C (Dash & Pyne, 2002) so it can be dissolved in warm water or green tea..
