Creatine is arguably the most popular and effective supplement in the fitness world however, there are different types of Creatine which you may not know the benefits of. In this Blog we will look at the best creatine supplements that you should consider taking. Creatine is a supplement that is great for building strength and muscle mass and therefore should be a staple supplement if you are looking to get the most out of your training.
Creatine Monohydrate is the most spoken about type of creatine in the fitness industry and it is a very effective choice if you are looking to make strength gains and give your physique a fuller look. Creatine Monohydrate is creatine with one water molecule attached to it - this is where 'monohydrate' comes from. Creatine monohydrate brings water to the muscles to make them more hydrated and this leads to improved performance and fuller muscles. Creatine can be produced in the liver and brought to your muscles however this is only in small amounts and therefore by adding Creatine Monohydrate to your supplement stack, you are going to see the benefits. Creatine Monohydrate acts to improve muscle performance in short and intense resistance exercises. Studies have shown that taking Creatine Monohydrate has benefited athletes during strength training. If you are looking for the best creatine monohydrate supplement look no further than Warrior Essentials Creatine for a powdered form or try it in the tablet form.
The general rule that people follow when taking Creatine Monohydrate is, one 5 gram scoop at the same time daily. It is recommended to take it with your pre-workout supplements on training days however timing isn't as important on rest days. If you find yourself taking Creatine at different times you are unlikely to see a noticeable difference as long as you are consuming daily.
Creatine Nitrate is an advanced fusion of highly soluble nitric acid and creatine. Creatine Nitrate is the most soluble creatine on the market with vastly better uptake and performance compared to the conventional creatine monohydrate. Creatine Nitrate has a smaller serving size as you only need 2.5 grams per day to get all the benefits. If you are someone who prefers smaller servings, maybe Creatine Nitrate is the one for you. Warrior Creatine Nitrate provides you with the same strength and muscle building benefits as our Creatine Monohydrate so why not add it to your pre-workout supplement today to start seeing results. Creatine Nitrate is excellent for nitric oxide production and endurance meaning you may find yourself getting more of a pump in the gym compared to if you were not using the supplement.
Powder or Capsules
Whether you are taking your Creatine in a powder or capsule form, you will see the same benefits. One form isn't superior to the other and therefore it is personal preference when deciding which form to buy. Creatine powder can be mixed in water and then consumed as a drink. One benefit of the powder form is the range of delicious flavours that it comes in. Creatine capsules are taken just like any other tablet and you should check the serving size of the packaging before consumption.
There is no clear winner between these different types of creatine's as there are only slight differences between the supplements. If you are someone who usually goes for the standard Creatine Monohydrate, why not try one of the others and vice-versa. Test them both out individually over a few weeks and see which one is best suited to you and then stick to that one.
