If you will compare the price of this product with other brands it seems it is unbeatable. But what about its quality and how come this product, the company is selling at this price. We will do end to end review of this product and will also try to understand a little bit what is Creatine Monohydrate and what it is used for? So stick with us.
So first let’s try to understand what is Creatine? Is it a drug?
No it is not a drug or steroid. In fact, it is similar to aminos, it shares many similarities with amino acids. The body can produce it out of the amino acids glycine and arginine. Creatine is a substance that is found naturally in muscle cells and can also be obtained from food.
How Creatine works in our body?
Creatine supplement is very popular among athletes and bodybuilders in order to gain muscle, enhance strength and improve exercise performance. So the question arises how exactly does it work. So friends please excuse me here don’t get bored if I am getting into too much of science. I will try to keep it simple.
“When we supplement our body with Creatine almost 90-95% of it gets stored in muscles in the form of phosphocreatine. This phosphocreatine it helps our body to produce a high energy molecule called ATP or Adenosine triphosphate, it is the energy currency of life. ATP is a high-energy molecule found in every cell. Its job is to store and supply the cell with needed energy. Thus when you have more ATP, your body can perform better during exercise”
Several factors affect your body's Creatine stores, including meat intake, exercise, and amount of muscle mass also the levels of hormones so that number of 90-95% could vary and rest are stored in the brain kidneys and liver.
Creatine also leads to increased muscle mass, strength, and recovery. The best form of Creatine which you can take as the supplement is Creatine Monohydrate it is the most common and most researched type of Creatine.
Benefits of Creatine Monohydrate.
Some key benefits of Creatine Monohydrate are as follows:
1. It improves your endurance in athletic performance.
2. It helps in better definition of the muscle group.
3. Increased muscle mass.
4. Lower blood sugar levels.
5. May improve conditions of Alzheimer’s disease
6. Facilitates optimal function of the brain.
Some fitness enthusiasts they go with loading phase where they take about 5gms of Creatine four times a day and after a week once loading phase is over they resume to take 3-5gms per day to keep the Creatine level elevated.
However it is not required, you can simply take 3-5gms per day and you could still get the similar kind of results. As Creatine pulls water into the muscle cell, it is also advisable to take it with a glass of water and stay well hydrated throughout the day.
Can we obtain this from food?
Absolutely yes. We, in fact, would recommend you to get this supplement through food. Some of the foods high in Creatine are red meat, pork, poultry, and fish etc.
Since we know most of the things about Creatine Monohydrate now let’s switch back to our topic of product review of Sinew Nutrition Micronized Creatine Monohydrate.
Sinew is a brand name which is launched by Healthgenie (online shopping store for healthcare and fitness products). I enquired about how this product is so inexpensive, they claim they are not buying the raw materials like other fitness supplement brands instead they are in-house manufacturing it which goes through strict quality testing and this helps them to produce a high-quality product at a very competitive rate. Which upon further research I found it to be true.
My Experience: I have used this product for almost 2 months and I feel this is a great product. Noticed some improvement in my performance during the workout. This is a Flavorless micronized Creatine monohydrate with no fillers or additives which is also a good thing. I would recommend buying the product which comes with a 3D hologram, to further ensure that there is no chance of adulteration. Make sure you are drinking enough water if you are taking this supplement to avoid any complications.
