Creatine Monohydrate is a naturally occurring compound found in the human body and obtained in the diet primarily from meat and fish. Creatine is a popular supplement among active individuals because of its ability to serve as an energy reservoir, especially during intense physical exertion. During short, intense bursts of activity, the body breaks down adenosine triphosphate (ATP) into adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and phosphate for energy. Creatine helps the body convert ADP back to ATP, providing greater amounts of ATP for energy, which may increase short-term endurance and strength. Creatine can also be stored for later use by cells, creating the "energy reservoir" active individuals desire.

iHerb Customer Reviews
It is still an ongoing debate for me whether pills or powder's better for creatine. For me, i feel that while pills r good and easy to swallow (compared to the styrofoam tasting powder), it is usually the powder that gives the best effects. Still, this is the few creatine pills i endorse. Go for this. Saw remarkable swelling if i go above the 3 tablets recommended.
Nothing new to say about creatine monohydrate itself, it works as expected. but the size of tablets is too big. It is hard to swallow them.
