MICRONIZED CREATINE MONOHYDRATE
One of the best selling supplements on the market, creatine made a name for itself as a proven performer back in the 1990’s. Its ability to enhance athletic performance has helped countless athletes train harder, work out longer and bottom-line … produce better results. Creatine is a naturally occurring energy source that your body uses in periods of stress or exertion to fight off muscle fatigue and increase endurance and anaerobic capacity. Creatine also acts as a muscle cell volumizer, leading to increased anabolism and muscle protein synthesis. Increasing creatine levels in the body thru supplementation allows for improved ATP regeneration and acts as a supply of power on demand for you during intense training. With creatine as a source of available energy, glycolysis (the metabolic breakdown of glucose into energy) decreases, which in turn reduces lactic acid build-up and leads to increased endurance. Gone are the days of creatine bloat and discomfort. 1st Phorm®’s Micronized Creatine offers superior mixability, faster uptake into the bloodstream, and no gassy, upset stomach issues. Micronized Creatine Monohydrate allows for increased and more rapid assimilation so you can get to work at the gym without waiting around. As with all 1st Phorm® products, you get the most pure ingredients, made with the absolute highest quality development and manufacturing processes to deliver a superior, more effective product to you.If you are looking for a product to increase strength and power, enhance endurance, and improve overall sports performance, 1st Phorm®’s Micronized Creatine Monohydrate is exactly what you are looking for! You’re going to love it!

Truth is there are dozens of forms of creatine out there and available for use as dietary supplements … creatine malate, creatine ethyl ester, creatine hcl, and the list could go on and on here. When we were formulating this product, we opted to go with micronized creatine monohydrate primarily because creatine monohydrate is one of the most well-studied and proven sports supplements available. Heck, almost all of the studies I can find showing creatine to be an effective sports performance supplement have been conducted using creatine monohydrate. It's not a fad product with a marketing angle on it … It' a proven ingredient that has truly stood the test of time. That's very important to us here at 1st Phorm as that's what we are all about … formulating and bring to market proven and effective products. We didn't want to bring some cockamamie version of creatine ethyl hydro whatevermakesitsoundbetter malate out that's powered by theory, with no science behind it… That's not cool. We'll leave that to the other guys. :) If you want a proven, effective product … We've got your back!
Because creatine monohydrate does not fully dissolve into water, it will have a tendency to sit in the bottom of your glass and go down with a somewhat gritty texture (almost like drinking a glass of water with a little sand in it). By using micronized creatine monohydrate, which is cleaved into particles up to 20 times smaller than standard creatine monohydrate, we were able to alleviate a lot of that gritty texture. Don't get me wrong … micronized creatine monohydrate will still not fully dissolve into water (that's science no getting around that) … but using a micronized product will make a HUGE difference in texture and overall mixability. That aside, using a micronized creatine monohydrate brings quite a few performance benefits about as well. Because the particle sizes in micronized creatine monohydrate are much smaller and offer substantially more surface area it will lead to much quicker uptake by the body and much more efficient assimilation rates. Because micronized creatine monohydrate goes thru several extra steps in manufacturing to make the particles smaller, you end up with a more pure product that assimilates more efficiently and doesn't sit in your stomach and leave you with that bloat that some other creatine products you might have used in the past left you with.
Failing to stay properly hydrated can cause anyone to pass out … but it will be even more exacerbated when it's someone who's performing intense physical exercise. Drinking enough fluid to stay properly hydrated is fundamental for everyone, but especially athletes who are using supplements such as creatine, which require an increase in fluid intake. It's natural for someone to try to draw conclusions and say it's the fault of the creatine when in reality, it isn't the creatine at all … but rather a simple lack of staying properly hydrated. Working supplements such as creatine in that create an increased demand in the body for water and then not meeting that demand can lead to symptoms of dehydration such as cramping, nausea, dry mouth, etc. For this reason we recommend that anyone using a product containing creatine (AlphaCre HD, Micronized Creatine Monohydrate, or any other product containing creatine on the market) always consume a minimum of 120 oz of water daily.
Creatine is a powerful muscle cell volumizer that attracts water to it within the body. As your muscle cells assimilate and store the creatine, it draws water into the muscle cell as well. This helps to volumize and saturate the muscle cells with water, but it also creates an increased demand for water within the body. To compensate for this increased demand, we always recommend that anyone using any products containing creatine also consume at least 120 oz of water each day. Doing so will allow you to reap the full benefits of the creatine product that you are using, whether it be AlphaCre HD, Micronized Creatine Monohydrate, or any other product on the market containing creatine.
Both caffeine and creatine create an increased demand for water with in the body. Caffeine is a natural diuretic and creatine is a cell volumizer attempting to draw creatine, water and nutrients into the muscle cell. Taking both at the same time would not allow the creatine to do it's job properly … If the creatine is attempting to draw nutrients and water into the muscle cell while at the same time, caffeine is flushing it out of the body, you won't have the water there that you need and therefore will not be able to draw the water into the muscle cell that you need in order for creatine to function and do it's job properly. taking these products at laternating doses will not pose a problem … Simply drink your coffee in the morning and take your creatine in the afternoon pre/post-workout. By that time the caffeine will have runs it's course, done it's job and exited the system. Unless you are chugging coffee or energy drinks day in and day out … It won't be a problem.
That is completely up to you if you want to work a creatine product into your routine. If you are looking for a boost in performance in the gym, increased muscle volume and size, I can tell you that creatine would be a great supplement to work into your routine, whether it be from a stand-alone product such as AlphaCre HD or simply from putting some Micronized Creatine Monohydrate in with your Phormula-1 and Ignition after your training. I can tell you that you will notice a night an day's difference in your training as well as in your overall muscle cell volume by properly supplementing with creatine.
