Product Overview

Magnum Nutraceuticals Big C
Increase Strength* Increase Endurance* Increase Muscle Hardening* Accelerate Recovery*
Finally: A Creatine Capsule That Doesn't Cause Water Retention*

Magnum BIG C will give you the dry muscular look that every hard training athlete wants. Big C is guaranteed to not cause water retention, so you can take it while you’re dieting, whether it be for beach season or even if you’re planning to step on stage and compete. Males and females alike have had great success with Big C and have been able to count on it for years to keep them hard while providing muscular energy, strength increases, and bigger muscular pumps.* The reason Magnum Big C is so effective at providing the benefits of creatine with zero water retention is because of the varied absorption rates of the creatines we chose to combine in the product, along with its unique combination of herbs, adaptogens, and absorption agents that allow Big C to be more effectively received by the receptor sites on your actual muscle tissues.* Another unique feature about Big C that athletes looking to showcase their hard fought gains will appreciate is the combination of CREATINE, GINSENG, AND ASTRAGALUS. This combination has been suggested in a recent human study to assist in greater strength and lean mass gains compared with the regular creatine group, but more significantly CREATINE, GINSENG, AND ASTRAGALUS supported a reduction in body fat mass compared with the creatine group.* Magnum Big C is the perfect creatine formulation for the body conscious athlete that doesn’t just want to gain water weight, but who actually wants to gain lean mass with no bloat. You can look and feel great with Magnum’s Big C!*

A recent human study showed the combination of CREATINE, GINSENG, AND ASTRAGALUS provided greater increases in strength and lean mass compared with the regular creatine group, but more significantly CREATINE, GINSENG, AND ASTRAGALUS supported a reduction in body fat mass compared with the creatine group!*

Big C was formulated to take advantage of this unique combination of adaptogens and creatine so you, the hard training athlete, can optimize the amount of fat you burn in a given time when compared to creatine alone.*

Creatine AKG is creatine that’s been bound to the AKG molecule. Since AKG is a Krebs cycle intermediate it can easily enter muscle cells, bringing with it more creatine. The Krebs cycle is a series of chemical reactions that take place in the mitochondria of cells and is involved in oxidative metabolism (energy production). More mitochondria are found in cells that expend a significant amount of energy, like muscle cells. This may result in a higher muscular creatine concentration and significant enhancements in strength and power performance.*

Creatine Pyruvate is the fastest absorbing form of creatine. Creatine pyruvate is not a blend but a molecule that combines both creatine monohydrate and pyruvic acid. Creatine regenerates the primary energy immediately available to muscles involved in short, intense contractions. Pyruvic Acid stimulates glucose extraction from blood into muscle during exercise and at rest, priming muscle with a carbohydrate content essential for greater endurance.*

Creatine Isolate is an ultra-isolated form of creatine that has greater solubility, uptake, and strength than regular creatine. Eliminating the impurities that inhibit the uptake of regular creatine to the muscle cell, helps to eliminate the “Creatine bloat".*

Tri-Creatine Malate is a compound made from Creatine monohydrate and malic acid. Malic acid is involved in the Krebs energy cycle as an intermediate substance and helps to provide energy to the body. Tri-Creatine malate eliminates the possibility of gastric disruption and is more efficient at efficaciously impacting the ATP cycle.

Ginseng appears to build strength and endurance through three pathways: 1. By enhancing the function of your adrenal glands during workouts.*2. By increasing your body’s own creatine production.*3. By increasing the number of mitochondria and creating greater blood-vessel density in your muscles.*This means that ginseng enhances endurance by getting more nutrients and oxygen from the blood into the muscles.*

Astragalus Root 4:1 has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine and can help athletes utilize more oxygen, thereby reducing their fatigue. Because astragalus is an adaptogen, it can also help the body adapt to the physical stress brought on by exercise.*

Russian Tarragon

One of the key ingredients in Magnum Big C is Russian Tarragon (Artemisia dracunculus L). When Russian Tarragon is combined with creatine in the specific amounts in Big C, it creates the same environment as combining creatine with 75 grams of dextrose. The creatine was actually “driven” into the cells by the effect of the Russian Tarragon. This resulted in an increase in creatine absorption when compared to consuming creatine alone. This allows dieting athletes to take Big C without any concern about gaining weight or water retention.*

Russian Tarragon is a valuable ingredient that should be combined with creatine for maximum absorption as it is in Big C

Really like having Big C in my daily stack! I found it helped increase my endurance and energy plus reduces my recovery time. I also notice an increase in strength and my muscles were more hard and dense than ever before. I've used Big C right to the stage and had 0 issues with water retention.

Jun 08, 2018

I noticed big results when taking Big C. No stomach issues at all. No water retention. Easy to swallow caps. As good as any to rated creatine I've used. I will use this again.

May 23, 2018

So with it being a creatine you aren't going to feel or see an immediate effect, or if you're already taking creatine you aren't going to notice much from one product to another other than maybe bloating. This product is much more convenient for me because it's in a capsule form. I love it.

Nov 05, 2017

I've tried almost every creative product on the market. My colitis flares up every time! I am now on my second bottle of big C and no issues what so ever! Pharmaceutical grade product is clearly the answer. Top notch product

Feb 28, 2017

1. I have no issue taking 5 capsules at a time, but I could see that being a problem for some. 2. Didn't bloat whatsoever like Creatine Mono does. I tracked my weight for 4 days after going off of BIG C and didn't lose any more weight so this makes me believe no water weight was gained. 3. I used this product while cutting and maintained all of my strength, even though the log only lasted 20 days. 4. Complaint: I think spacing out the dosing would be smarter, instead of taking each serving so close together.

One of the better creatine products I've tried lately. Since the old school cell mass back in 09' i've been using monohydrate. This seems to do the same thing while keeping a little less water on me personally.

Sep 25, 2016

Really cool product. Definitely gets the job done, and I think it may have some beneficial ingredients beyond just creatine. The only reason I only give it a 9 is that it is quite a bit more expensive than a basic monohydrate which has proven itself very effective.

THE ONLY CREATINE SUPPLEMENT ON THE MARKET TO NOT MAKE YOU GAIN WATER WEIGHT! The energy and strength gains you get from this is unreal! The muscle density and hardening of muscles is nuts!!

Jul 10, 2016

I was told that this would not cause water gain. Unfortunately this was not my experience. My chest went from a 34D to 34DDD. I am fairly certain that this supplement was to blame. It was the only one (aside from a multi and EFA's) I was on when went I left for an 8 day vacation. During this time I stopped the Big C and my chest went back to 34D. I returned what I had left of the supplements but can't return the new bigger clothes I had bought. While (Big C) Creatine is not for me, I still think people should give it a try.

Jul 02, 2016

Really like having Big C in my daily stack! Helps increase my endurance and energy plus reduces my recovery time which is KEY for me because I like to train a lot. I also notice an increase in strength and no bloating or water retention which is awesome!

[B]Thanks to COUNTRYMIKE and Magnum for this![/B] There's not a whole lot to say other than it is a super easy to get a great creatine blend! - Made my muscles feel full and hard! - I really didn't notice any water retention at all - I was able to keep and build muscle while cutting fat - Helped with my endurance and gym performance! - Felt big and muscles looked good! What else can I say? IT works!

Love this stuff. Taking as directed, I feel the difference after one full cycle of it combined with two other Magnum products. My dumbbell bench was 75's after I took a limited schedule for the holidays, and now that I'm back religiously, I've added 7 pounds of muscle, and pressing 85's. Great stuff and will keep this part of my regimen.

This creatine was awesome. The main thing is I got zero GI upset. Most creatine make me run to the bathroom. Also a very low amount of water retention. This cause you to appear fully and big C aids in some strength gains. Creatine is something everyone should be on and this a great way to get it in and all you got to do is take in 5 small caps pre and post.

Dec 03, 2015

I liked that these came in capsules, as creatine doesn't really mix well, so I could just pop it in and I'm ready to go. The different types of creatine was great, compared to most supplements that only has one kind. I noticed strength gains while taking these pills, and I took them as directed. I felt fuller and looked like it too, and had better endurance while working out (able to get one or two more reps more than usual). I really like this product, and would recommend it to anyone who wants to take a creatine product.

Nov 24, 2015

Big C is a great, convenient creatine product that delivers gains. For ten pills a day, you likely get your maintenance dose of creatine plus Russian Tarragon, P. ginsent, and Astragalus. I'd prefer is the formula was entirely disclosed so that I could tell what the specific doses of the ingredients, though it appears that there is a solid dose of a mix of different creatines. The creatine forms are definitely unique, and I doubt they perform different than creatine monohydrate (there is no research to that effect), but they are definitely effective forms! After using Big C, I noticed strength and size gains that were great, though only marginally better than regular creatine monohydrate with simple carbs like grape juice. I felt that I was slightly drier, more dense, and had better pumps during my Big C use. I'd say Big C deserves an 8/10 because it performs very well but is slightly pricey and doesn't use a transparent label.
