What is Creatine Monohydrate Micronized Powder?
Creatine Monohydrate powder is a natural substance that is found in muscle cells and stored as phosphocreatine. Creatine phosphate helps make a high-energy molecule called Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). ATP provides the energy required for muscle contractions.
The creation of ATP allows for the improvement in strength and output of power when working out while increasing the duration of the workout. Creatine is produced in the body from the amino acids glycine and arginine, both of which promote muscle growth. Creatine provides other benefits to the body; it can boost satellite cell signaling, which allows for the building of new muscle fibers. Creatine may also reduce the breakdown of protein, which yields more muscle mass, while also lowering myostatin levels. Lowering myostatin levels ensures that muscles can grow without myostatin impeding them.
It is only through extensive studies that Creatine Monohydrate is regarded as the safest and most preferred form of creatine and is also the easiest to find.
Creatine Monohydrate Benefits May Include:
- May support muscle building†
- May support an increase in endurance†
- Can help increase exercise performance†
How Does Creatine Monohydrate Work?
Creatine is a small compound composed of L-Arginine, Glycine, and L-Methionine, and acts as a reservoir for phosphate in a creatine phosphate form. Cells in the body use a nucleic acid known as adenosine triphosphate (ATP) for energy. When used, it gets converted to ADP or AMP. The protein, adenosine monophosphate kinase (AMPK), facilitates the conversion of AMP to ADP. The creatine form found in the cell reservoirs helps regenerate ADP to ATP, so it refuels the metabolic processes. The process of supplementing creatine increases the overall pool of creatine and phosphocreatine in the cells. This increase results in improved regeneration of ADP to ATP conversions and increases cellular energy storage. Resulting in improved power output, increased high-intensity exercise capacity, and promotes lean body mass. Supplementing creatine with Beta-Alanine has shown to have a synergistic effect with improved performance and strength.

The best deal for creatine monohydrate micronized, which is as good as any creatine. No sense in paying more for fancier forms.
Good stuff, works great
Another great Hard Rhino product!
This as with all Hard Rhino products is nothing but excellent!
I have been lifting for many, many years and have tried numerous creatine products. The only results I experienced were bloating and gas so, needless to say, I was not eager to try another creatine. After learning from Will Brink's site that mixing creatine with warm water would enhance absorption, I figured I'd give it another go. The result was that for the first time, I experienced a noticeable boost in weight on my lifts and on the scale, with zero digestive issues. I've used Hard Rhino brand supplements for several years and have been pleased with the quality of everything I have ordered, creatine included.
