CREA-8, a pure creatine monohydrate, is a combination of three different amino acids: glycine, arginine and methionine.
CREA-8 is one of the most heavily researched supplements, perfect for anyone wanting to improve their strength, increase lean muscle mass and optimise recovery. Be empowered, reach your goals and take your fitness to the next level with CREA-8!
Consume 5 grams of CREA-8 with 8 Ounces (240 ml) of water or mix with OxyWhey Lean Wellness Protein.
During loading phase (1 week), consume 10 grams of CREA-8 pre and post workout with 8 ounces (240 ml) water.
Creatine requires a 1 week loading phase for maximum effectiveness. This means you should take it in higher doses for the first week to optimize levels in your muscles so that you can perform at your best.
WHEN’S THE BEST TIME TO TAKE CREA-8?
There is no scientific research that provides evidence for optimal creatine monohydrate consumption timing. However, it is important to ensure that you consistently consume
CREA-8 on a daily basis to ensure that your muscles are saturated with creatine monohydrate to promote cell volumization, muscle hydration and increased endurance.
WILL CREA-8 CAUSE WATER RETENTION?
The natural biological response by the body from consuming creatine monohydrate is to retain water in the muscle cells. Excessive water retention and bloating is a side effect of poor quality creatine monohydrate. CREA-8 is the best quality German grade creatine monohydrate and will not lead to excessive water retention. However, if you are competing in bodybuilding/fitness show or you want to remain extra dry in appearance (dehydrated), we recommend to hold off using CREA-8.
I HEARD THAT CREATINE IS A CHEMICAL - IS CREA-8 SAFE TO CONSUME?
Creatine monohydrate is a safe supplement that has been used in fitness and bodybuilding for decades. It is a combination of three different amino acids: glycine, arginine and methionine. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Scientific studies suggest that creatine monohydrate increases fat free mass, anaerobic strength and power.
