What is the best creatine supplement? 

Creatine is perhaps the most time tested and effective body building supplement available. There are various forms of creatine available on the market; many of which hide behind marketing hype such as “Advanced delivery system” or “Liquid form for fast absorption”. The most common form is creatine monohydrate.

I will let you in on a little secret…

One of the largest supplement companies out there sells a creatine product with an advanced delivery system. This company has sponsored many physique transformation challenges in the past 2 decades. The primary ingredient of their famous creatine product is dextrose. Do you know what dextrose is? It’s a simple SUGAR! If you go to your local beer and wine making store, you can buy a 5-10 pound bag of dextrose for less than $10! Talk about making a killing! Their product is clearly NOT the best creatine supplement for your money.

After reading this post, I hope you no longer fall for these claims.

But is Creatine Safe?

Well, yes and no. Allow me to elaborate on this. As I mentioned in the beginning of this post, Creatine monohydrate is the most common form AND the form used in all the research studies. Pure Creatine monohydrate is safe. Do not be tempted by other forms of creatine and the mega money marteting campaigns surrounding them.

Perhaps the most shameful and poorly reserached media around Creatine was the sudden death of three wrestlers. The media latched on to false claims that creatine was responsible for their deaths and it spread like wild fire! The FDA launched investigations and proved that creatine was not involved, rather hyperthermia, heart failure and heat exaustion/dehydration. This was due to the extreme heat training they were performing while wearing rubber suits!

 Enough already!
What is the best creatine supplement?

German manufactured Creapure brand Creatine is one of (if not THE) best Creatine Monohydrate brands on the market. There are several popular Creatine products on the market that use the Creapure brand. Look for it on the label. You get what you pay for and if you buy cheap, you may be buying an inferior Chinese brand. Read the statement below.

In a statement issued from the makers of Creapure…

“In the recent weeks, there have been numerous reports of contamination issues involving Chinese suppliers. We therefore, would like to take this opportunity to offer reassurance that Creapure Creatine Monohydrate is manufactured at our plant in Germany to meet the highest standards of quality, safety and effectiveness. Inferior production practices and raw materials can lead to possible harmful impurities such as creatinine, dicyandiamide, and dihydrotriazine.”

 Finally, if you are on a budget, then eat your red meat! Creatine naturally occurs in red meat. Bet you didn’t know that!

On a related note, individuals that consume higher amounts of red meat will see less benefits from creatine supplementation than those who consume a diet lower in red meat.
