Micronized Creatine Monohydrate Overview
A great price on top-quality micronized creatine is the main reason tubs of AST Micronized Creatine Monohydrate get clicked into shopping carts all day long at AllStarHealth. It's been such a long time since creatine made its debut (as creatine monohydrate) that it's easy to forget just what a great, effective muscle nutrient creatine mono is. Creatine monohydrate more or less gave birth to the sports nutrition industry as we know it because for the first time, there was something that unambiguously worked, and made a real difference in people's workouts and results. The creatine revolution gave rise to a still-widening field of 'enhanced' and 'next generation' creatine formulas, with dozens of ingredients and forms of creatine, much higher pricing and lots of non-creatine ingredients that are mainly there for sake of making a brand's product unique. So athletes are coming back to plain creatine mono in droves and finding that if you want to use creatine, nothing really beats using creatine mono, either in terms of results or cost-effectiveness. Shopping for creatine monohydrate is a little tricky since 100% creatine mono are all pretty similar. The main differences in the products come down to the quality and purity of the raw materials, the cost, and whether the powder has been micronized for easy mixing. Since the quality of the creatine can't be determined without lab tests, your best bet is to go with a known national brand like AST. AST creatine is a true micronized powder that mixes right into liquids, and the great pricing speaks for itself. Stop overpaying for "creatine, etc." formulas and get back to using what works with AST Micronized Creatine.
