Is all Creatine created equal? No it’s not. In this vid, I cover the essential issues regarding creatine and where it’s actually produced.

I’ve got a large bottle of Creapure 800mg. There is no expiration date on the bottle. It may be two years old, kept from heat and light. Is it still good?
Probably fine. As long as it’s not in liquid form, it’s very stable stuff as a rule.
Love your updates, great stuff.. keep em coming
I have a question, a little off topic perhaps.. I’m in my late 40’s now and don’t go to the gym any more. I exercise every alternate day at home, mostly pushups, pullups, and free weights ( dumbells)
Back in the old days when I used to frequent to the gym, people always put creatine in the same bracket as steroids, and thought that they would cause long term damage, so I never tried it. Times change and now we know that’s not the case.
So my question is whether creatine would be of benefit to me, a person whose solely into light weight training for health purposes and not primarily for beefing up.
Also if one were to take creatine for a period of time and gain muscle( or weight due to water retention within the cells) wont you lose that once you stop?
And finally, if the body is used to external supplementation of creatine, wont the kidneys and liver get lax at producing the 1gm per day that they produce under normal circumstances? kinda like how your body gets lax at producing testosterone once you take steroids for a long period and then stop?
Thanks for your time.
Creatine has so many potential health benefits it’s a supplement I’d take regardless of whether I exercised or not personally. I recommend you read my free report on creatine which you’ll get (along with 4 others) if you sign up to the mailing list.
Covers creatine pretty much A-Z. There’s also a series of vids in the Creatine Vids section of the site.
Will, Creapure is monohydrate though right?
Yup, monohydrate which is by FAR the most researched form and the only form I’d recommend.
SORRY WILL BUT THIS IS ABOUT YOUR N.E.A.T. ARTICLE. I THOUGHT IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST I EVER READ. I CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE SECOND PART. THANK FOR IT RICH
Thanx, but I didn’t write it (Monica M did) and why are you yelling at me? 🙂
SORRY I ALWAYS DO CAPS. I know she wrote it but I follow your lead and if you have her
write in the zone I am thanking you. RICH
Great info Will!
In the video you mentioned a logo for creapure.
Is it possible to post this logo so we know what to look for – assuming this is used on product labelling?
A google search will turn it up fast enough.
