- Maximum Results - Creatine hydrates and loads your muscles with energy, allowing you to load more weight during high-intensity training and push harder to make bigger gains.
- Explosive Power - Optimum Creatine specifically supports your muscles for short, but high power workouts enabling you to increase your rep count or in increase weight. The result, bigger gains.
- Twice the Gains - While this claim might seem far-fetched, a study in 1999 showed that after a twelve-week resistance training programme users taking creatine supplements increased their muscle fibre diameter by twice that of the placebo group in the same test. Creatine really can help you make MASSIVE gains.
- Gain Weight - Creatine is known to increase mass and weight, one thing to bear in mind if you find your weight going up after taking it...it’s muscle weight and not fat!
- Unflavoured - Optimum Creatine Powder is unflavoured. This makes it especially easy to mix with any drink you like!
