What is Creapure® Creatine Powder?
Creapure® Creatine is a powder that enhances performance over successive bursts of short-term, high intensity exercise. Creapure® Creatine Monohydrate is the most researched form of creatine in the world and has been thoroughly tested in numerous different sporting activities. The scientific evidence is so strong for Creapure® Creatine that it is widely regarded by leading sports nutrition scientists as the single most effective legal performance enhancing substance a sports person can take.
Creatine is an acid found organically in our bodies, and helps to supply energy to the body’s cells, mainly muscle tissue. By mixing Creapure® Creatine Powder with liquid and drinking immediately, the energy sources within the muscles are boosted. Creapure® Creatine Powder is also completely tasteless, and only 2-4g needs to be consumed each day.
What are the benefits?
- Increases physical performance
- Saturates the muscles prior to workout
- Simple to take powder form
Taking Creapure® Creatine Powder delivers the additional creatine the body requires each day, as only 50% can be produced by the body naturally. Taking creatine is perfectly safe, as any excess taken will simply be processed by the kidneys and excreted as urine. This product is completely free from BSE transmitting substances, which is especially poignant when you consider that every other type of creatine is made in China, with varying degrees of quality control.
Who is it for?
Creapure® Creatine Powder is suitable for men and women over the age of 16, who are training to improve their performance, endurance and recovery times.
Made by synthesizing non-animal-sourced materials, Creapure® Creatine is guaranteed to be vegetarian and is suitable for vegans, but is not currently suitable for coeliacs.
With normal activity levels, we recommend consuming 2-4g of creatine a day. Depending on physical and mental activity, this dosage can be upped to 5g a day. For fit and healthy people we recommend a starting point of 3g a day.
Five day loading phase: Once your body is acclimatised to Creapure® Creatine, we recommend a loading phase, during which you take 5g (roughly one scoop, included in the tub) four times a day at regular intervals for five days before going back to the standard recommended usage. This loading phase is to saturate your muscles with creatine in order to achieve the best results from the product.
Mix Creapure® Creatine Powder in liquids such as water, protein shakes, milk or juice. As a general rule of thumb, for every 1g of creatine, mix with at least 100ml liquid.
Creapure® Creatine needs to be drunk immediately after mixing as the potency of creatine is lost if left to stand for too long.
How is it made?
Creatine is made naturally within the liver, kidneys and pancreas, but the body can only create half of the creatine needed daily. The rest must be consumed through the diet.
Creatine was discovered in the 19th century in beef broth. Today, creatine is made via chemical synthesis. Non-animal ingredients are synthesised through chemical reactions to produce creatine that is suitable for vegetarians.

The science behind it
From elite sportspeople to men and women just starting out in sporting endeavours, people recovering from an injury and those looking to boost everyday activities, Creapure® Creatine Powder can increase physical performance in successive bursts of short-term, high-intensity exercise.
From high-intensity and endurance exercises such as sprinting, swimming, rowing, weightlifting and cycling, to maximum strength sports, creatine increases phosphocreatine reserves, which are molecules that serve as high-energy stores during exercise.
The German company that make Creapure® Creatine, AlzChem, have done extensive trials and tests on Creapure® Creatine and can guarantee the long-term safety of supplementing with Creapure® Creatine.
Supplementing with creatine is completely legal and is not considered doping, as creatine has been classed a food by the IOC (International Olympic Committee). Creatine is found naturally in vertebrates, such as fish and meat, meaning creatine can be found in a healthy diet. Supplementation of creatine provides an easy and guaranteed source of creatine to support sporting efforts.
If the creatine you take is not Creapure® Creatine, it is likely that it will contain up to 5% impurities, some of which can be harmful, such as BSE. Creapure® Creatine Powder is tested for impurities to guarantee the purity of the product.
