One of the most widely researched and popular supplements on the market, Creatine has been known and scientifically proven to support muscle gain, maximize strength, and improve endurance and anaerobic performance for the past 25 years.
Naturally occurring in our bodies, creatine is a small tripeptide, made up of three amino acids linked together, which is used as an energy source to fuel muscles during stress and exhaustion as well as fight off muscle fatigue, increase endurance, and increase anaerobic capacity.
Although our bodies produce creatine at a rate of 1-2 grams per day, supplementing with creatine saturates your muscles equaling greater muscle mass and explosiveness. Increasing your creatine intake by 5 grams per day, aids in the production and regeneration of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), your muscles main source of energy.
By regenerating ATP levels, creatine quickly sends available energy to your muscles during high intensity exercise or heavy lifting. As energy increases, the metabolic breakdown of glucose decreases, which reduces lactic build-up and increases endurance.
Flavorless, odorless, and easily dissolvable, adding 2 scoops of ATH Creatine to your workout routine will improve lean muscle mass, strength, power, and muscular endurance.

Yes. Creatine is the most widely researched supplement on the market! In a 21 consecutive month study of long-term creatine supplementation, creatine was found to produce no ill health effects. There is no need to cycle off of creatine because your body will not develop a creatine tolerance, such as it does with caffeine.
Aside from supplementation, creatine is produced naturally in the body by the liver, kidneys, and pancreas at a rate of about 1-2 grams per day and can also be obtained by consuming red meat.
Creatine causes intramuscular water retention, meaning that water is retained in the muscles. When intramuscular water retention occurs it increases muscle fiber diameter, which further leads to muscular growth.
Not directly. Creatine has been shown to increase levels of DHT in the body by 40%, however weight training alone has also been known to increase DHT. Although increased levels of DHT have been consequential in hair loss, baldness typically only applies to men with a genetic predisposition or family history of hair loss.
Creatine naturally occurs in our bodies, where 90-95% of creatine is stored in our muscles. Our kidneys, liver, and pancreas produce creatine at about 1-2 grams per day. Creatine is also found in raw uncooked (red) meat.
In its powder form, mix 5g of creatine with your drink of choice. We suggest adding 5 g to either your PRE or BCAA to supplement your workout.
Creatine loading is the fastest way to saturate your muscles creatines stores by “loading” them with 20-25g of creatine per day for an entire week. Basically, you will be intaking 4-5 servings of creatine per day, in order to increase the amount of creatine in your muscles. Saturated muscles equal growth, therefore by quickly saturating your muscles with creatine, you will see quicker results. You can still saturate your muscles creatine stores by taking 5g per day, however it may take up to a month for your muscles to reach saturation.
*Creatine loading is typically recommended for people who are new to creatine or are coming off a creatine break.
