Different types of Creatine

If you want to train harder in the gym and enhance your potential for strength and muscle growth – there a simple, research proven answer; take ‘creatine’ to boost your natural stores of the energy-producing compound. But with different qualities and forms of the supplement available – does it make a difference which one you take? Here’s what you need to know…..

Here are the different types of creatine


CREATINE MONOHYDRATE has been studied for decades by scientists analysing its potential impact on fatigue resistance, muscle power, strength and growth. This is the original creatine that’s proven to increase high intensity energy production during repeated bouts of intermittent exercise – just make sure you
use a product that contains micronised creatine monohydrate, for safety and results.

Using a pure creatine monohydrate powder allows you to take it as a stand-alone supplement, and add it to drinks and shakes. Many experts recommend consuming this form of creatine with high glycaemic carbohydrates (e.g. grape juice or a recovery shake such as RECOVER 2:1 ISOLATE™) to maximise uptake.


If regular creatine works well – then why would you want to think about supplementing with a different form of the nutrient? The answer is the potential for better absorption and synergistic impact with other ingredients.

The biggest breakthrough in potentially enhanced creatine absorption is creatine-pyruvate, which scientists continue to study for its impact on optimal intra-muscular uptake. Pyruvate is a nutrient that is known to contribute to energy production and transport glucose and nutrients into cells.

This is why next generation CREAPLEX HARDCORE™ capsules contain a unique Creatacore™ creatine complex with creatine-pyruvate, in addition to uptake and support nutrients such as alpha-lipoic-acid, chromium and glutamine.

Another option is to use an all-in-one mass gainer with creatine-pyruvate such as OMNI MX® HARDCORE.

Which ever form of creatine you support your training with – it’s a no-brainer supplement to get in your nutrition plan!
