EHP Labs Crea-8 (Creatine Monohydrate) is an essential for anyone serious about shifting big weights and performing optimally at high intensity training! Crea-8 will help to improve your strength, endurance and will help to build lean muscle tone. 

What is Creatine?

Creatine is a chain of three amino acids made by the body. The body synthesises and stores creatine in skeletal muscle to provide a fast quick fuel source of energy that doesn’t require oxygen (great for explosive movements). Unfortunately our bodies don’t synthesis and store enough creatine to supply us with much more than a few seconds of energy, this is why we supplement with creatine to increase the amount found in our body and the amounts our bodies can then store! By supplementing with creatine, we can increase muscle creatine stores approximately 20%!

Benefits of Creatine:

  •   Increasing Pre-Exercise Creatine Levels
  •   Promoting Glycogen Storage
  •   Increased Re-Synthesis of creatine in the muscles between sets
  •   Increased Strength
  •   Improved Recovery

Debunking the loading/bloating myth:

A lot of gym goers worry about loading creatine dosages or getting watery/bloat on creatine. You do not have to load creatine, as you can only store so much at once… it is more important to be consistently taking it. Take 5-10g with your post workout shake, plus added carbohydrate to have optimal uptake of that dosage. Then consistently use for as long as you are following a training program or going to the gym. The water bloat is expected as creatine is stored with water and glycogen (carbohydrates), a slight increase in water in the muscles is normal. But for up to a 20% better performance on strength, recovery and power… it is worth it in our eyes.

Product Highlights: 

  •   Easy to mix with liquids, and adds well to other powders (due to being flavourless)
  •   100% Pharmaceutical grade, creatine monohydrate
  •   Ideal for any athlete at any level trying to improve power and performance

Frequently asked questions

  • How much creatine should I use?

    We recommend consuming 5g of Creatine Monohydrate 1-2 times a day. Taken immediately pre or post-workout with a protein and carbohydrate blend. Alternatively, it may be mixed with the beverage of your choice and consumed immediately after mixing.

  • Do I need to do a loading dose with Creatine?

    It is not necessary to implement a ‘loading period’ (typically a high dose for 5-7 days, followed by a lower maintenance dose). However, doing so can increase your muscle creatine stores more rapidly. Supplementation with 20g daily for 5-7 days can increase stores by 10-40%. But as mentioned, this loading strategy is unnecessary. Most research seems to show a dose of 5g daily is the maximum needed to elicit benefits over time. Creatine needs to be taken continuously over a number of weeks to gain benefit. Creatine does not act like a stimulant such as caffeine where the impact of performance is acute and nearly immediate. Rather, creatine has its benefit when it accumulates and muscle stores become saturated.

  • Does Creatine cause dehydration?

    Some do say that creatine causes muscle cramps and dehydration. However, creatine may actually serve to protect against dehydration by drawing more water into cells. Studies have shown increases in total muscle creatine stores following supplementation led to increased water retention, particularly within the muscle itself.

  • Is creatine bad for me? Will it damage my kidneys/liver?

    In short, no. Creatine is not bad for you if dosed suitably. Like many other amino acids overdosing on Creatine for an extended period can put too much load on the kidneys and the liver. However we naturally consume creatine in every day foods such as beef and the human body can use creatine effectively to restore intra muscular energy levels. When dosed correctly, creatine will not harm the body but will aid performance greatly.
