Bulk Powders Creatine Monohydrate review

Value

Bulk Powders Creatine Monohydrate is available in 10, 100 and 200 servings. At the time of writing, our best offer is £11.99 for 200 servings. If we break this down by size (1kg), this works out at £1.20 per 100g of powder. This works out at 6p per serving, which is well below average and is outstanding value.

 

Taste

Taste is not as important when it comes to Creatine. We’d always recommend using unflavoured and mixing it with a product such as BCAAs for maximum performance in the gym.

However, this product does come in unflavoured, Apple & Lime, and Mixed Berry. We did try these flavours out of curiosity. Apple and Lime is very tangy and has a great green colour to it (funnily enough), and the Mixed Berry is very punchy with a sweet taste.

 

Mixability

Creatine is usually quite grainy in texture, similar to sand. Across the board, it’s easy to mix. Just try not to add too much to your liquid, as it can sink to the bottom and stay there if too much is added, and you don’t need to be excessive with it.

We added 5g to 1l of water and it mixed with no problems. Nearly all creatine products will have 10 mixability.

 

Effectiveness

Effectiveness is even simpler for creatine. There are lots of different creatines, e.g. monohydrate – the most common form of creatine on the market, ethyl ester, and a lot of brands use Creapure which is a form of creatine monohydrate, that a lot of brands use for their creatine.

Creatine monohydrate helps the cells in your muscles provide more energy, improves high-intensity exercise, speeds up muscle growth, can lower blood sugar levels and can even combat neurological diseases.

You can cycle creatine, but we would recommend taking it year-round as there are no drawbacks of using creatine. You also get creatine from food sources such as meat. In order to maximise creatine stores in our body, we would start using 20 grams daily for 5-7 days. This should be followed by a ‘maintenance’ dosage of 2-10 grams per day. Another approach is 3g daily for 28 days.

Per 5g serving, we are getting 5g of pure creatine monohydrate. However, for the flavoured versions, you are only getting 4g, which means 20% of the ingredients come from elsewhere, such as artificial flavours, colours and sweeteners.
