THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS 100% CREAPURE®
Although all creatine powders may look alike, looks can be deceiving. The fact is that potentially harmful impurities such as dicyandiamide, thiourea, and dihydrotriazine may be present in creatine products produced via some low-cost methods. And because many supplement companies simply use the cheapest creatine they can find (or whatever type of creatine happens to be "hot" at the moment), quality often varies widely from one brand of creatine to the next
That's why top researchers, medical professionals, and knowledgeable health-conscious individuals alike seek out Creapure Creatine Monohydrate - the patented product recognized worldwide as the benchmark for creatine quality.
Only Creapure Creatine Monohydrate is produced using a unique patented process (U.S. patent 5,719,319) which guarantees the highest purity, and potency. Each batch is produced using Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) in an FDA-registered plant in Trostberg, Germany and is rigorously tested using state-of-the art high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC).
Because Creapure meets the strictest quality standards, and because Creapure is one of the only types of creatine which has been subjected to the rigorous scrutiny of hundreds of short and long-term studies spanning over two decades, you can be confident that no other type of creatine can top Creapure when it comes to purity, safety, or effectiveness. Cheap knock-off creatine monohydrate products or fads like liquid creatine, buffered creatine, and creatine esters don't even come close.
Quite simply, Creapure is one of the purest creatine monohydrates available anywhere. Creapure is produced in Trotstberg, Germany via a patented production process (U.S. patent 5,719,319) which continually yields creatine monohydrate with a purity of 99.99%. For comparison, even the best creatine monohydrate produced via other methods yields creatine monohydrate of approximately 99.6% purity (and many creatine products have been found to contain far higher levels of impurities than this).
The difference in purity may seem negligible at first, until you realize that creatine is usually taken in doses of several grams per day for long periods of time. Given the known purity of Creapure, ingesting even small amounts of impurities day-in and day-out for weeks or months at a time simply constitutes an unnecessary risk.
Over the years, Creapure has set the standard for creatine purity, effectiveness, and safety - something other creatine manufacturers simply cannot claim. This is why we at Integrated Supplements believe it's important to make sure that your creatine product is made exclusively with Creapure creatine monohydrate.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q. What is Creatine?
A. Creatine is an energy–related nutrient formed in the body from the amino acids arginine, methionine, and glycine. Creatine is directly involved in a process which allows our bodies to rapidly regenerate the energy molecule known as adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. Under periods of high energy demand or physical exertion, the amount of work (both physical and mental) we are able to perform is often limited by our bodies’ ability to rapidly regenerate ATP.
As creatine plays such an important role in the production of muscular energy and power, creatine supplements have been widely embraced by athletes (especially athletes whose sports require quick bursts of energy and muscular strength, like weightlifters, bodybuilders, sprinters, or football players).
Our body produces creatine, and creatine is also found in our diet, in foods such as meat or fish. Our goal with supplementing creatine (as is our goal with supplementing other nutrients) is simply to maximize our intake without having to consume massive amounts of food.
Q. What's the best way to take creatine?
A. Integrated Supplements 100% Creapure® Creatine is a fine (micronized) powder which mixes easily into almost any liquid. For best results, many people mix creatine into pre- or post-workout drinks containing whey protein and a source of carbohydrates. Consuming creatine in this way may create a nearly ideal environment for creatine uptake by the muscles, and optimal performance and recovery benefits.*
Q. Is it necessary to load Creatine Monohydrate?
A. Probably not. Although there is evidence to suggest that loading creatine is beneficial for quickly saturating muscles with creatine, other studies suggest that smaller doses of creatine, taken consistently, are able to saturate the muscle cells with creatine equally well (though, logically, reaching muscle saturation will take longer). Ultimately, loading creatine is entirely optional.
Q. Is it necessary to cycle Creatine Monohydrate?
A. Cycling creatine is also optional. Remember however, that though the immediate effects of creatine in enhancing muscular size and strength can be dramatic, the real benefits of creatine – supporting the growth of actual muscle tissue – occur in the longer term. As such, it's important to take creatine consistently for best results. As such, it's probably best to take creatine consistently for several months before cycling off.
