Product Overview

You have liquid creatine, creatine candy, creatine gum, creatine capsules, and even stomach-bloating effervescent creatine (Give this a try, I guarantee you'll only do it once!). With all these "tricks" thrown at trying to market a "different" creatine - little has actually improved upon the effects of regular creatine monohydrate.

The problem is, companies are trying too hard to make their creatine different instead of developing a creatine that is actually better.

As you may or may not know, creatine monohydrate will not fully dissolve in liquid. That's why you always get that gritty sand at the bottom of the glass. Look at it this way, if it falls like sand to the bottom of your glass what does it do in your stomach? Maybe that explains why so many complain of stomach discomfort when using regular creatine monohydrate.

  • Support Increased Muscle Torque*
  • Support Increased Muscle Cell Volume*
  • Support Increased Muscle Energy*
  • Support Increased Muscle Strength*
  • Support Increased Muscle Endurance*
  • Enhances Recovery*

With AST's constant commitment to improve the effectiveness of sports supplementation we have developed a new creatine supplement that incorporates state-of-the-art particle micronizing technology (PMT™).

This technology sets a new standard for creatine monohydrate supplementation by actually producing creatine 'micro-particles' that are 20 times smaller than regular creatine powder.

Micronized creatine has numerous advantages over regular creatine monohydrate.

  • Faster Absorption*

    AST Micronized Creatine's smaller particle size means quicker digestion and faster utilization.*

  • More Efficient*

    20 times more total surface area for greater uptake into the bloodstream.*

  • Greater Purity

    Micronizing creatine produces a more pure creatine. By increasing the total processing steps and purification procedures, AST's Micronized Creatine yields a finished product substantially more pure. Test it. We challenge you.

  • Mixes Easier and Better
  • AST's Micronized Creatine has 20 times more surface area. Greater service area means easier, faster and more complete mixing.

  • No Stomach Upset
  • Regular creatine monohydrate sits in the gut longer. This causes discomfort to many users. AST's Micronized Creatine goes into solution better and leaves the gut quicker causing no stomach upset.

  • Better Results*
  • New Micronized Creatine offers 2000% more particle surface area for better utilization, better uptake, and faster results.*

How to use Micronized Creatine 1000
AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine is very versatile. It mixes instantly in liquid and stays suspended longer. It has no gritty mouth feel and is easy on the stomach. Micronized Creatine offers the most effective creatine monohydrate for fast results.

Loading Phase
Take 5 grams four times daily for 5 days.

Maintenance Phase
Take 5 grams twice daily.

Drink Plenty of Liquids!
Creatine works by enhancing muscle cell hydration.* It is very important to consume adequate fluids while taking creatine to see best results. A good rule of thumb is to drink and EXTRA 16 to 20 ounces of liquid for every 5 grams of creatine you take.

During your Loading Phase you should be drinking an EXTRA 64 to 80 ounces of what you normally drink. During the maintenance phase you should drink an EXTRA 32 to 40 ounces.

This is very important and ensures you get the maximum out of creatine supplementation.

Questions And Answers

What exactly is AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine?
AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine is a unique new creatine monohydrate that is manufactured using state-of-the-art particle micronizing technology - PMTTM. With this new technology we are able to actually make each tiny creatine particle 20 times smaller than typical creatine powder. Smaller particle size means more total surface area for quicker and more efficient creatine absorption.

AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine mixes easier and stays in solution. Regular creatine powder drops to the bottom of the glass even before you are finished stirring.

Once you try AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine and see how well it works you'll never want to use regular creatine powder again.

How is AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine better than regular creatine?
AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine is designed so that it is utilized better and more efficiently. The micro-particle size allows for quicker absorption and better utilization.

A simple analogy would be like chewing food. If you only chew your food a few times it will be much harder for your digestive system to handle and fully utilize the nutrients. However, if you chew your food thoroughly before swallowing then your digestive system has no problem digesting and utilizing all the nutrients the food has to offer.

The same applies with AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine. It's 20 times smaller than regular creatine and therefore much easier and faster absorbed and utilized.

Our new micronized technology also yields a more pure raw material due to the extra purification steps involved in the process.

Creatine gives me a stomach ache; will AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine upset my stomach too?
That's the problem some people experience with regular creatine. Because of the large particle size of regular creatine some people can't digest it very well. It tends to sit in the gut longer than it should. This causes mild stomach discomfort and also yields poor results due to sub-optimal absorption.

AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine solves this problem. It gets into the bloodstream quickly and efficiently with no stomach upset. This means better results - faster and with no discomfort - GUARANTEED!

Are there any side effects with AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine?
Taken as directed, AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine exhibits no negative side effects. You will, however, see a marked increase in strength and lean muscle gains when combined with an intense weight training program.*

Will AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine make me stronger?
Yes! When combined with resistance training, AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine will help you increase strength and lean muscle mass.*

AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine is non-caloric and will not increase fat accumulation.

How much muscle will I gain with AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine?
There is no accurate answer to this. There are too many other factors involved that effect muscle growth. Creatine increases cell volume by increasing the fluid holding capacity of the muscle cell.* This increases muscle weight, size and strength as well as long term muscle accrual.* You may see an increase in strength and size in a relatively short period of time.*

I'm a bicycle racer; will AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine help me with speed and endurance?
Contrary to what most think, AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine may help increase speed and endurance.* A recent study showed creatine supplementation delayed fatigue in repeated bouts of sprint running.*

Though first thought to be only beneficial to strength athletes, studies are beginning to uncover very significant improvements in endurance athletes as well.*

Do I need to cycle AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine?
Some people like to cycle creatine. However, there is no research that concludes whether or not it's beneficial to cycle creatine. If you feel the need to cycle creatine I recommend taking it for 12 weeks and then cycle off for 4 weeks.

When you resume taking creatine you will have to follow the loading procedure again.

Your Micronized Creatine is awesome! How do you get it so white? It makes the other brands look crude by comparison.
The new AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine is really a major advancement in creatine development. This advancement is not just because of the increased efficiency the micronization brings but there is also an increase in purity as well. The extra processing involves several more purifying steps that yield the purest creatine you can put in your body. And we guarantee it. This is why AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine is a brilliant white in appearance.

Purity is very important. Some may think there is not much difference in 99.9% purity and 98% but there is a big difference. What is that other 1.9%? Impurities! Impurities that could be doing some hidden damage to your system compromising the results you get and most importantly your health.

Your body is an elaborate machine. It can handle a certain amount of toxins but over time these toxins can be very harmful and impede intricate processes hampering your body's potential to perform optimally.

My second day taking it ....After reading some of the reviews about this product, I expected to get some real gritty crap in the mail. I was so thankfully surprised that it mixes not only well with my protein shakes but with just plain water. There is a little silty texture to it but it's barely noticeable when drinking. No stomach upset either. Looking forward to seeing my hard earned results next!

I know I should wait before I post my review. However just thought I would help those out that are looking for a good creatine. I have been taking AST's micronized creatine monohydrate for a week now and have added 7 lbs so far. Have noticed it has been some water weight behind abdominal area but that's usually gone by the next morning. Also have noticed a few strength gains already. So I have to say this is a great product so far and I would advise those who are looking for a good creatine product to give this a try.

Holy crap... this is either the best creatine ever or the worst. This is the only creatine that I've ever had that is truly a powder and that completely mixes in water. I would have to believe that more is getting into your system just on that alone. However, everything I know about creatine says that it isn't supposed to mix as well as this stuff does. tObviously creatine is typically stacked with other products and it is not something you "feel" working, hence the best/worst statement. I gave the product a 9 simply because it blows away any and all other creatines as far as mixability.

Tastes horrible (like baking soda,) doesn't mix well, has a horrible texture and smells like a horrible mixture of chemicals. However, I did see very good results. This is my first creatine product so I can't compare the results to another brand. I have now started taking Optimum's Micronized creatine. It mixes better, lacks a bad taste and the texture is nonexistent (lacks a smell as well.) Hopefully the results are the same if not better.

The creatine gave me average gains. You get a lot for your money. But along with that, quality is thrown out the window. Not bashing the company or anything, but it didn't mix. Not a single speck mixes, just sits in your shakers cup, all gritty and nasty. Not to mention, they didn't give Me a scoop.. Would not buy again.

I bought this as part of my training regimen to build endurance and strength; however, I was not pleased with this product. It arrived Monday afternoon as scheduled, I opened the box, then opened the product itself and I was disgusted with how the micronized creatine smelled. It smelled more like chemicals than unflavored, unscented creatine products I have used before! After taking the recommended dosage for the loading phase, I experienced stomach cramps, diarrhea and an awful after taste from the creatine-which also tasted like chemicals. I have discontinued using this product and I am only sticking with whey protein and vitamin pills as part of my regimen. DO NOT waste your money on this product, you can build strength and endurance naturally through solid nutrition!

I mix with whey and dextrose after workout.

10
 

Took 5-10 grams before and after workout for months but didn't get full benefits until I followed the traditional 5 day loading phase. I did 5 grams, 5 times a day, for 5 days. My strength has increased and my size has increased. I used to think it was a marketing gimmick to make people buy more but it's true - the loading phase (at least with this product) is necessary for true results. Just don't spend too much money on creatine. It's cheaper to take loads of creatine monohydrate rather than creatine hcl (i.e. concrete) and you get the same results.

First time taking this after 2 months of whey protein because I felt the need to increase my strength while working out. Read previous reviews that it doesn't really mix well despite AST's claims and it's true, it doesn't mix well. Hopefully they can improve on that because it tastes like sand in my mouth. Gonna wait and see if it works.

Although texture is claiming 100% creatine and glutamine are quite mixed. If you are disappointed is an increase in bulk glutamate. Do not buy from this company again.
