With so many forms of Creatine on the market to choose from, all claiming to be the best, which form is really the best? I decided to do a test along with four other friends who take Creatine routinely, to find out which form of Creatine gave us the best results. Like many of you who take Creatine, you also want the strength and size that it should deliver, well the truth is many forms of Creatine do not deliver much for strength and size. Myself and my four friends decided to test out a few forums of Creatine, to find out for ourselves which form of Creatine is cost effective and does deliver the strength and size we want.
Here are the forms of Creatine we tried, each form was tested for 8 weeks:
Creatine Hydrochloride (HCl)
Creatine Monohydrate Micronized
After 8 weeks we all found out that Creatine Hydrochloride and Creatine Kre-Alkalyn did little in the way of strength or size increase unless you took far more daily that directed. This would be very expensive to follow, but staying on the recommended daily dosage showed little results. Now on the other hand we all experiences strength and size gains with the Micronized Creatine, which is far cheaper to use than the other forms of Creatine even at 20 grams daily which is what we took for the 8 week test.
I wish I would have know this about Creatine long before I went on Creatine Hydrochloride for 1 year and wondered why I lost strength and size. I just thought it was due to getting older and that it is just the way she goes. On Creatine Hydrochloride my body weight went from 240 pounds down to 232 pounds and my arm dropped from a 20 inch cold measure to 19 inch cold measure, yet my stomach measurement was the same as usual. So lost muscle size and strength, but body fat levels basically were the same as usual.
Now when I switched back to Micronized Creatine I started to notice strength and size coming back fast. My weight actually shot back up to over 240 pounds and my arms after a few weeks of hard workouts were right back up to 20 inches cold. I now know if I was to switch to a different form of Creatine, I would have to take far more than the recommended dosage to get any results and of course this would be much more expensive than taking the Micronized Creatine.
Just a note, during the testing of each form of Creatine we all stayed with our usual routines, supplements, eating etc Only change was the different forms of Creatine. I really needed to know which Creatine was best over-all and the facts showed me that the Creatine Monohydrate Micronized is the true winner!
