PhD Nutrition Micronised Creatine

Creatine Monohydrate is ideal for all athletes interested in power, strength and performance intensity
Read more...

Description
Pure micronised grade creatine monohydrate
No product range would be complete without Creatine Monohydrate. Since bursting onto the sports nutrition scene in the 90’s, Creatine Monohydrate has gone onto become the number-one sports supplement of choice for a large majority of athletes seeking enhanced performance.

Creatine is naturally produced in the human body from amino acids found primarily in the kidney and liver. It is transported in the blood for use by muscles. Approximately 95% of the human body’s total creatine is located in skeletal muscle. Creatine is not an essential nutrient, as it is manufactured in the human body from L-Arginine, Glycine, and L-Methionine.

Whilst there may be sports nutrition ingredients on the market that exist without scientific foundation or indeed, quality, research backed material, Creatine Monohydrate is not one of them. It has been proven that Creatine improves physical performance in successive bursts of short term, high intensity exercise. This makes Creatine Monohydrate ideal for use by all athletes interested in power, strength and performance intensity.

Q&A
Q But when we see MET RX, PHD Reflex and so on that have products with Creatine Monohydrate, what the difference between the brands if its just monohydrate only. Also do you recommend taking creatine with high carb sources included or it its pure form with grape juice for example. I ask this as most products with its own 'uptake spike' carb source are so high in quick sugars they dont seem to be very healthy, especially as your going to to be using proteins and other supplements around workouts.
A

If you train hard regularly, you use up a lot of energy from your body's glycogen stores, which are made up of sugar. So for this and other reasons, well-timed sugar or high-GI carb intake is not going to be unhealthy. If taken with protein and creatine, these carbs will dramatically increase the amount of creatine and protein that is delivered to and stored in the muscle, thus improving recovery and increasing strength and muscle gains. This is one of the reasons why Cell-Tech is the best-selling creatine formula ever - lots of carbs and patented ingredients that ensure maximum creatine retention. Protein and creatine are certainly not unhealthy however, certain types of carbs can be if they are taken in excess too long before or after workouts. The bottom line is correctly-timed carbs WILL improve your results. A good amount to take with creatine and protein after training is at least 60 grams if you are training hard. For the full story, see - http://www.tropicanafitness.com/view/v/article/a/176 to get the facts about creatine.

Q i am looking for an increase in mass and i am currently training with phd synergy, is it possable to take this product with synergy as they both contain creatine?
A

Yeah you can combine both as the ideal dosage for creatine daily is 5-10mg on non-loading days. What you will notice is an increase in strength by supplementing more with creatine, and a more fuller look to the muscles.

Q is phd one of the best makes and is it better to stack this with pharma whey or synergy?
A

Each serving of Synergy contains a half day's dose of creatine. So I would skip the creatine and take two servings of synergy per day. Plus Synergy also has carbs, so it would help you retain more creatine in the muscle (although more would be better to increase creatine retention further)

Q what servings should i take egz. 1 serv 10g daily or 2 serv of 5g daily and should I take it every day or every second day?
A

Take 5 grams of creatine 4 times per day for the first 5 days spread out througout the day and then take 1 to 2 five gram servings per day thereafter.

Q Are there any medical problems with creatine and who shouldnt take it?
A

None of the thousands of scientific studies or expert roundtable safety reviews on creatine has shown any negative side effects. Even the "reports" of cramps, bloating, etc are not supported by any proper research. The only proven side effects of creatine are inceased muscle size and strength and improved high-intensity exercise performance The only caution would be for people who have kidney problems or a family history of kidney problems for whom creatine may not be a good idea.

Q can this product be taken post workout with PhD Diet whey or does it need to be taken pre-workout for best result. ???....i also take NO-xplode or Shotgun for my preworkout supplement...should i mix it with my preworkout supplement ??
A

Creatine uptake into muscles is probably the same whether you take it before or after training but no one knows for sure because studies have not been done on this. So best having it after (as your pre-workout products contain a small amount of creatine also).

Q Could i mix this in with PhD Pharma gian and what results would i see if i did do that
A

Yes this is perfectly fine.

Q Creatine is commonly used for mass and strength gain during high carb diet...but what results can i expect as a first time user on a low calorie and low carb diet ?
A

Similar benefits, we always advocate to have creatine regardless of whether you are looking to increase muscle mass or lose body fat as it can increase strength levels during both phases.

Q Hi I just purchased this product - is it meant to have brown coloured specs in it? The creatine I usually use is pure white.
A

We are not familiar with this product to have brown bits in the mixture. If you feel this is not right please contact our customer service team on - 0845 345 0917

Q hi, i occasionally take pre-workout supplement which contains creatine blend if i add creatine mono is there any side effect that can occur from taking to much creatine ???
A

No there is no direct side effect from taking to much creatine, if taken with the recommended amounts of water, any excess creatine will be passed through the system.

Q hi, i was wondering what is the best way to take creatine other then in protein shake as people often in reviews tell you taking it with water is a waste of creatine ??
A

You can take it in any liquid you like. Creatine is best taken with a carbohydrate drink for better utilisation. Drink immediately.

Q How much creatine should I take on rest days?
A

A daily maintenance level of creatine is 10g per day. Take two 5g servings, one in the morning and one in the evening.

Q i am over 75 kg therforethe daily guideline for taking this creatine is " 10 grams every second day to fully maximise Creatine transporters" would you reccommend taking it everyday 2 scoops before and after workout? ? thanks
A

Studies have shown the best way to get the most from creatine is to take 20g for the first 5 days of use and then maintain 10g per day everyday after. Adequate amount of creatine for a daily maintenance level is two 5g servings. On training days take one 5g serving around 60minutes before your workout and 5g immediately after.

Q I am trying to get lean and cut and i am considering adding creatine for better muscle definition and performance...but unfortunately after hydrating myself regularly I find that I often get bloated and start carrying a little too much water weight...will this product make me feel bloated as i am not yet fully lean as i intend to be ???
A

When using a creatine product it is a myth that creatine creates water retention where in fact its more so the fillers that are put into some creatines that can do this. We recommend choosing a product which is 100% micronised creatine such as PhD's Creatine to ensure you don't carry unwanted water.

Q I have just purchased this product but am going on holiday for a week and so will not be training. I am keen to start taking it but would it be best to start once I return or can I "load up" on holiday so I am god to go on my return? I guess my main question is can you take it when you aren't training? Thanks
A

You can load up on creatine without training that week if you choose but you may not get the same creatine retention you would get if you were training during the loading phase. No studies have been done to see the difference in training vs non-training during a loading phase.

Q What time period is recommended to use this for?? 4 weeks, 6 weeks, 8 weeks?? and how lomg should you have off?? Thanks
A

There is no good research or evidence that shows you need to come off Creatine at all. Extensive scientific studies and expert safety reviews have been conducted to this effect. Some people like to go for 6-8 weeks and then have a week off but as stated above there is no study to show this. PHD do not give a usage period.

Q But when we see MET RX, PHD Reflex and so on that have products with Creatine Monohydrate, what the difference between the brands if its just monohydrate only. Also do you recommend taking creatine with high carb sources included or it its pure form with grape juice for example.
