D.R. Creatine (Creatine Monohydrate Capsules)
DR. CREATINE is creatine monohydrate in a delayed-release capsule. It is quite possible that by bypassing the acidic environment of the stomach that higher absorption of creatine can be achieved with less of the typical side effects of creatine supplementation.
WHY WOULD I TAKE IT?
If you’ve ever taken creatine before, but experienced some gastric discomfort or were ever concerned about creatinine formation Dr. Creatine is here for you. If you’re seeking the results of increased muscle power output, or increased muscle mass without any of the undesirable side effects, Dr. Creatine is specifically designed to avoid all of these by simply bypassing the stomach.
HOW DOES THIS WORK?
By encapsulating creatine monohydrate in a delayed-release capsule, we’re able to avoid potential gastric upset and potential creatinine formation by avoiding interaction with stomach acid. This allows for absorption of creatine by the small intestine only in a neutral pH at a slightly elevated temperature, increasing the solubility of creatine.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I TAKE?
The suggested use for Dr. Creatine is to take four capsules daily. Now this does only provide 3 grams of creatine monohydrate per day. If you’re someone who likes to load creatine on the front-end, then 7 capsules can be taken 4 times per day in equally spaced dosages throughout the day. However, after four weeks of Dr. Creatine supplementation at 3 grams per day should still allow for complete muscle creatine saturation within 30 days.
