Creatine Supplements: What Makes it the Best?

Quality is a trait that cannot always be immediately observed. For instance, a glass of crystal-clear water at a restaurant that looks pure can have a number of impurities that may compromise your health if taken over an extended period of time. The same applies to creatine. Any ” 100% creatine” on the market today may look as pure and clean as virgin snow, but unfortunately the harsh reality is that due to inferior raw materials and substandard processing methods some manufacturer’s creatines have more than 5% chemical impurities including, in some, a carcinogenic known as DHT.

In essence, what scientists are coming to realize is this: “Fast” isn’t nearly fast enough. After an intense workout ends, you have ninety minutes to two hours, at most, for real growth. During this brief period, you’ve got to get targeted nutrition, high-quality aminos and growth factors, into muscle tissue to support repair and growth.

The vast majority of protein formulas contain complex, long-chain aminos that are simply too slow in digesting to properly take advantage of this interval. As a result, athletes are left with unutilized aminos still churning in their guts hours after their workouts, and opportunities for growth are lost.
