Optimum Nutrition is one of the well-known supplement brands out there, one that has been paying attention to the different needs of athletes and of men and women alike. ON produces health supplement powders to mix with drinks and power up a bodybuilder’s diet. We are going to have a look at its Creatine formulation.
Optimum Nutrition Creatine Powder Unflavored is a pure creatine supplement that can help you out in a wide range of situations. However, its main use is for bulking up and speeding the process. You get 3 g Creatine Monohydrate in each serving and the manufacturer boasts that there are no other ingredients besides it. The supplement is used to power up your protein consumption and thus your gains, too.
Weighing only 150 g or 5.29 oz, this may seem like a very small container, but that’s far from the truth. With such creatine, a little goes a long way and thus you have 50 servings in it. The price stands at only SG$7.60-SG$7.93. With the variations being negligible, you can order whenever you like.
Taste and Mixability
Mix only one half of a rounded spoon in a glass of water (8 to 12 fl. oz.). You may also choose fruit juice instead of water since the powder has no taste and therefore will not alter its flavor. You may even add it to your protein shakes and to other elixirs you might be using in your fitness routine. It is easy to mix with just a spoon, no need for shakers or blenders.
Optimum Nutrition Creatine Powder Unflavored does not replace the protein needed in your diet. What it does is to deliver high-quality creatine, which helps your body make better use of the protein ingested. However, when it comes to creatine, it is not sure how much of it is needed on a daily basis. Therefore, it is hard to tell whether one serving of this is going to be enough for your needs. In any case, it is still worth trying, as creatine is one of those substances that have been proven over and over again. A great aspect of this particular brand is that being unflavored, you can practically use it in numerous drinks and enjoy its benefits. It can work as a meal replacement but its best use is for protein supplementation and weight gaining. It’s best to have an adequate carbohydrate intake because carbs help retain creatine inside the muscles. Also make sure you’re drinking plenty of water, which is vital when you are taking creatine in any form. Aim for at least 8 glasses a day.
