I bought this GNC brand Creatine Monohydrate on a whim with a friend as we were checking out the local store at our closest mall. I've been looking for a cheap, yet relatively good creatine supplement as I have heard lots about the effects and potential benefits from starting the supplement. The GNC brand is much like any other creatine you'll find out there on the market. It is NOT micronized and therefore the lower rating on its mixability. I normally throw it into my blender bottle with water on off days and mix it with my protein powder when I finish a workout. Any time that I use straight water, the creatine takes quite a long time to dissolve. At times, the liquid solution is cloudy and often the granules can be seen at the bottom of the bottle. As for the method - I avoided the extra "loading phase" and opted for a pure 5g a day after completing a workout. So far I've seen some great effects, probably just a small amount over what I could consider any placebo effects. I've been able to constantly hit my max personal bests, and in the past 2 months of starting this supplement have increased my flat bench press by 20 pounds as well as greatly increased my deadlifting weight to 245 from 185 pounds. Overall I find that this is a cheap, and relatively safe supplement to take. No qualms with buying it from GNC either. Highly recommended as something everyone should try if they have the health qualifications to do so.

I've been using GNC's creatine monohydrate for a while now and I can honestly say that it delivers where it is supposed to. While using the GNC brand of creatine monohydrate, I have experienced an increase of muscle mass and a decrease in the amount of time it takes for me to recover. The powder mixes pretty well but there always seems to be a little bit of powder left at the bottom. I always have to add more water once i finish drinking the original mix in order to get the rest of the recommended dosage. The powder contains no sugar but it still tastes good when used with only water. The only side effects I have noticed while using this product are mild bloating, and some water retention.
