Creatine FAQ

Questions and answers

RATE:  
 

1. WHY IS THERE SO MUCH HYPE ABOUT CREATINE?

I prefer to use the term evidence, than hype! Creatine is a natural supplement which is found in red meat and fish. Some argue that those who consume high amounts of red meat are naturally more muscular than, say vegetarians. When you take a loading dose of Creatine and continue with a maintenance dose, you see your physique change - I mean you SEE it! As you can imagine, not a lot of things on this earth can achieve this legally and safely.Creatine sales in the US have gone from over $50 million dollars a couple of years ago, to an expected $200 million this year!! Creatine is an amazing supplement. Why do you work out anyway? To get a better body? More energy, endurance? Well, Creatine gives it to you quick-time!

2. WHAT'S SO DIFFERENT ABOUT LA MUSCLE CREATINE?

Good question! After all, there are literally hundreds of companies out there selling Creatine in one form or another. LA Muscle Creatine is one of the purest forms of Creatine you can get. LA Muscle Creatine Monohydrate has a minimum of 99.9% purity and Explosive Creatine has been tested against the best Creatine on the market and has come up tops! Every batch is tested and sampled to make sure it conforms with all our strict criteria. You also receive a "Certificate of Analysis" confirming this. So at all times, you can be rest assured, you are purchasing quality. When you use LA Muscle Creatine, you know you are using the best, or your money back!

3. CAN YOU TELL ME THE CORRECT DOSES FOR CREATINE? NO PROBLEM!

Take 5 grams, 4-5 times a day for 5-7 days! If it sounds a little confusing, then hang on. Obviously a 250 pound bodybuilder cannot take the same loading dose of Creatine as a 120 pound one! Therefore, the above is a guideline. If you don't want to do any calculations, then the average is 20 grams (4x5g) for 5 days! Maintenace dose: Again the same argument for the size of the athlete goes. The recommended dose is 5g, twice a day. However, you can maintain on 5g just once a day, especially if you are not too huge (yet!).

4. SHOULD I STAY ON CREATINE ALL YEAR ROUND?

You can load up, maintain for 2 months, have a month off and then re- load;Or you can load for 5-7 days, maintain for 6 weeks and then have 1-2 weeks off.

The choice is best made by experimenting and finding out what works for YOU! Don't stay on Creatine for long extended periods with no break. You won't gain more. It is better to cycle Creatine!

5. IS CREATINE SAFE?

Yes. There is no evidence suggesting that Creatine use is not safe. If we come across any, you will be the first to know! As mentioned earlier, Creatine is a natural substance and is made up of amino acids. However, LA Muscle does not recommend anyone with any kidney problems or inefficiencies to take Creatine supplementation. Always drink lots of water when supplementing your diet with Creatine.

6. WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO TAKE CREATINE?

On the loading phase:

Creatine intake should be spaced at intervals during the day. It is best to leave at least 2-3 hours between each dose.

On the maintenance phase:

Creatine should be taken within about an hour after training. If you are taking it twice a day, then you can take the other dose before your workout.
