Micronized creatine monohydrate is our favorite type of creatine supplement. The reason for this is simple. After you finish drinking a glass you can be sure that the creatine you mixed in your drink will end up in your muscles and not wasted, stuck to the bottom of the glass. This means that more creatine monohydrate is available to help your muscles get bigger, stronger, and look better.
The reason micronized creatine dissolves better than powdered creatine is the ‘micronization’ process its put through. Simply put, this involves grinding the powder into very, very fine crystals. The final product you get dissolves easier and more completely than powdered creatine. You take it micronized creatine the same way you take regular creatine, 5-10 grams a day mixed in water or your favorite protein shake.
Our micronized creatine supplement is Optimum Nutrition Micronized Creatine. It’s an unflavored micronized creatine powder that’s available in a 2000 gram size. Each can contains 400 5 gram servings. We use it ourselves and find that it really does mix easier and stay mixed better than regular creatine. Its purity can’t be beat either since Optimum uses Creapure brand creatine that’s guaranteed to be free of impurities and is tested to contain 99.5% creatine monohydrate per scoop. Plus at just under 10 cents a serving, you can’t beat the price.
