What You Should Know
There are times when companies gain loyalty among customers and then change up a supplement formula to include different ingredients without telling customers of the change. ProLab Creatine Monohydrate used to be known as ProLab Creapure. Creapure is a brand of creatine preferred by many bodybuilders. For a long time, the ProLab Creapure (Creatine Monohydrate) label included a green symbol and the world Creapure. Recently, bodybuilders are noticing the Creapure symbol is missing. After several calls to the manufacturer, ProLab admits Creapure is no longer being used in the ProLab Creapure (Creatine Monohydrate) supplement. They contend to newest form of creatine is just as effective as Creapure, but most bodybuilders are not convinced. The price of ProLab Creapure (Creatine Monohydrate) did not go down when the company switched manufacturers and bodybuilders continued to order the supplement thinking it contained the creatine source they always purchased from the company.
List of Ingredients
Creapure brand creatine monohydrate.
There are standalone ingredients and branded ingredients. Sometimes, branded ingredients are formulated in such a way that they work better and help the user achieve optimal results. Take green tea, for instance. Green tea standardized to high levels of EGCG may be more effective at boosting metabolism than a green tea bag. Both are green tea, but they do not work the same.
This is what happened with ProLab Creapure. Bodybuilders ordered the ProLab Creapure supplement because of the micronized creatine ingredient used in the supplement. One day, bodybuilders starting taking a second look at the new product label and noticed the Creapure label was missing. The company immediately told bodybuilders that Creapure was no longer used. Trust between the consumer and the ProLab company is not shot. No matter what the company does, the bodybuilder will not trust the ingredients in ProLab formulas. Many are already reporting in bodybuilding forums that they are choosing a different manufacturer that still uses Creapure.

There are so many supplement manufacturers that companies need to ensure consumer trust or they will fail in no time. ProLab was just starting to hit the mainstream when they changed their product label and ingredient list without telling the supplement’s fans. Now, bodybuilders are flocking to other manufacturers for supplements because the trust they once had with ProLab is gone with the ProLab Creapure supplement. Any companies selling ProLab Creapure could have an older stock, but it is important to check the ingredient list before buying.
