Betancourt Nutrition has its own 140,000-square-foot cGMP manufacturing facility. This allows us to experiment...a lot. After much trial and error, our supplement development team figured out how to compress the world's most studied performance-enhancing supplement -creatine- into a single chewable tablet so small that two dozen of them can fit in your hand. Plus, we made it taste like candy!
Of the more than 200 studies published on creatine, those investigating its effects on resistance exercise performance show that, on average, subjects supplementing with creatine increase their strength by 14% more than those taking a placebo (1). As with any supplement, individual responses vary considerably, with studies reporting increases in bench press strength of 3% all the way up to a remarkable 45%.
The evidence in flavor of creatine is so strong, researchers are even telling doctors to recommend it. Dalbo et al. (2) state, "Physicians should strongly consider advising older adults to supplement with creatine and to begin a resistance training regime in an effort to enhance skeletal muscle strength and hypertrophy, resulting in enhanced quality of life."
Whether you're young or old, a hardcore "bodybuilder" or someone who just wants to fight off aging, creatine supplementation can help you. With the release of new Chewies Creatine Micros, Betancourt has made creatine supplementation even more convenient and enjoyable.

Creatine's effects on muscle strength and performance can be explained at least in part by its ability to increase phosphocreatine (PCr) levels. Higher PCr levels encourage faster recovery of muscle adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels after exercise. ATP is the ultimate source of energy for muscle contraction and many other processes.
To increase your muscle PCr levels, it's recommended that you supplement with creatine daily. You can take Chewies Creatine Micros any time of day. Studies suggest that when you take it isn't as important as how much you take, and how consistently. Start by taking 1 serving of Chewies after your first meal of the day and again after exercise. Chew the tablets thoroughly before swallowing with water.
