Product Description

Stayfitcentral’s Review of Betancourt Nutrition Micronized Creatine

Betancourt Micronized Creatine Monohydrate is made in the USA, tested to ensure purity, and designed to help you get results fast. It’s even gluten free!

Every scoop contains 5 grams of specially milled, or micronized creatine monohydrate powder. By ‘micronizing’ creatine into a really fine powder you are left with a supplement that dissolves quickly and easily in water.

This means that every gram you add to your water is available for your muscles and not wasted at the bottom of your glass like regular creatine powder.

Every canister contains 105 servings. This is enough creatine monohydrate to last 2-3 months, even if you take it every day. It’s tasteless, odorless, and doesn’t contain any fillers or other ingredients.
  

Betancourt Micronized Creatine – Frequently Asked Questions

 

Who Should Take Betancourt Micronized Creatine?

Studies show that the ingredient in this product – creatine monohydrate – is great for men and women, young and old, of all fitness levels.

Listed below are the types of people who can benefit from this supplement. You’ll quickly see that it can help in at least one way.

  • If you want to build muscle (3-5 or more lbs.) in a few weeks.
  • If you want to recover faster between sets during intense Crossfit WODs and other workouts.
  • If you want to become stronger and more powerful, faster than normal.
  • If you want to run faster.
  • If you want to be able to train harder and reduce the likelihood of cramping in hot weather.
  • If you need your brain to function at its peak during a workout, event, or work.
  • If you want to finish your workouts and competitions strong instead of weak and tired.

 

As this list shows, pretty much everyone from pro basketball players, Crossfit athletes, guys and girls training to look better naked and even your grandmother can benefit from Betancourt Nutrition Micronized Creatine.
  

How Does Creatine Work?

After taking your daily dose, the creatine monohydrate is broken down into another compound called creatine phosphate. It’s then stored in your muscles, brain, and other cells in your body.

This extra creatine is then used as a source of instant energy during brief and intense WODs, workouts, and competitions. With this extra energy you will be able to train harder before you’re completely fatigued and forced to quit or fail during a heavy set.

Another way creatine works is by pulling more water into the cells that make up our muscles. This extra water creates a better environment for more muscle to grow. It also helps our muscles look better in and out of clothes.
  

What’s The Best Way To Take Betancourt Micronized Creatine?

Research shows that you’ll get the greatest benefits from creatine by first loading your muscles with creatine monohydrate as quickly as possible. After you filled up your body with as much as it can store, you should then switch to a maintenance phase to keep them full.

Here are the specific dosages and schedule researchers find is best.

  • Loading Phase – take 20 grams a day for 7 days in 4 divided doses.
  • Maintenance Phase – take 5 grams a day every day.

Sticking to this plan will enable you to get the greatest results the fastest and keep them coming as long as you’re training hard and eating right.
  

Does Creatine Work For Women?

Yes, the latest research finds that when used properly, women get the same benefits as men. The one minor difference is that it may take a week or longer for them to be noticeable.

My wife experiences this firsthand. After taking creatine for a week she asked me when it was going to start working, Then, about 10 days later she told me that her strength and workout endurance had improved dramatically.
  

Is It Safe?

Several clinical studies find that taking creatine monohydrate as directed in safe for healthy guys and girls, even when taken for several years.

As always, speak with your doctor before taking this or any other nutritional supplement.
  

What about the Newer Types Of Creatine (Creatine Ester, Creatine HCL, Liquid Creatine) Better?

In one word, no. Studies show that many of these supplements don’t actually have enough of creatine to be effective or when taking simply don’t work.

Stick to micronized creatine monohydrate. It’s proven to work in dozens of studies and by millions of athletes who’ve had success after using it properly.
  

Who Shouldn’t Take This Supplement?

First off, if you have a health condition that may be worsened by creatine monohydrate, don’t take it at all. Same holds if your doctor says it’s not in your best interest.

Other than that the list is pretty small. One instance, if you absolutely, positively, cannot afford to gain an extra ounce of body weight.

Since it doesn’t help improve your aerobic endurance, some may say athletes who participate in long, slow, distance workouts and events (distance runners, cyclists, etc.) shouldn’t use it either.

I disagree. While it may not help your aerobic endurance, creatine will help you get stronger, make working out in the heat easier, and improve your ability to push harder during your sprint to the finish line.
  

Conclusion

You now know how Betancourt Micronized Creatine can benefit you in and out of the gym. All that’s left is for you to give it a try. Once you do, I think it will be the creatine supplement you take forever.
