Creatine is one of the few bodybuilding supplements with tons of supportive literature and studies. Amplified Creatine XXX is a powerful creatine supplement designed with amino acids and carbohydrates to facilitate movement of creatine to the muscle. The faster creatine makes its way to the muscle, the faster it can start working to improve muscular hydration. There is a down side to creatine, however. The ingredient can super-hydrate the muscle causing an imbalance in electrolytes and cramping. Most bodybuilders are willing to suffer the mild to moderate muscle cramping in exchange for faster muscle growth and recovery. After taking creatine during the bulking phase, bodybuilders will typically take fat burners and diuretics to shed extra weight and water before a competition.

List of Ingredients

Micronized Creatine Matrix Blend: Micronized Creatine Monohydrate, Micronized L-Arginine,

Micronized Guanidinoacetate, Micronized Alpha-Ketoglutarate, Micronized L-Glycine and Micronized L-Methionine.

Proprietary Amino Acid Complex: ResVida-Trans Resveratrol.

Product Features

The three main parts of Amplified Creatine XXX are creatine, dextrose and amino acids. Dextrose is the source of carbohydrates that moves creatine and amino acids to the muscle. There are 10 grams of creatine per serving of Amplified Creatine XXX. This is double the average dose available in other creatine supplements. Taking double the creatine monohydrate means taking the chance on doubling the muscle cramping.

In addition to the proven trio of ingredient, we love the fact that all ingredients are micronized. This means the particles are smaller so they mix better in liquids. Many creatine shakes will leave liquids clumpy and gritty, making it very difficult to consume and even harder to digest. Micronized creatine and amino acids, melt in liquid and digest more quickly.

Creatine is not a weight loss supplement, so the dieter does not need to take this supplement to lose weight. Creatine will cause weight gain via water retention.

Advantages

  • Contains amino acids, creatine and carbohydrates.
  • Micronized for easier mixing and digestion.
  • Contains a whopping 10 grams of creatine.
  • All ingredients are listed on the GNC website.
  • Formulated by a trusted vitamin company.

Disadvantages

  • Not designed for weight loss.
  • Will cause water retention.
  • Will cause muscles to cramp.
  • Double the dose of creatine means double the side effects.
  • May not be safe for long-term use.

Conclusion

Everything about this supplement is a thumbs up, aside from the massive creatine dose. We understand taking more than 5 grams of creatine per day during the loading phase, but the body can only hold so much creatine and this supplement supplies more than the body can hold. More creatine monohydrate is likely to increase side effects and that could mean lots of muscle cramping and water retention.

    The creatine matrix blend is 10g , monohydrate accounts for 5 of the ten grams, the other 5 grams is made up of arginine, glycine etc. so you are actually getting 5g creatine mono per serving which is ideal and with no increase in side effects :)
