Creatine Monohydrate Revolution™ is our raw, unflavored creatine monohydrate formula. As a whole, creatine is the most extensively researched and effective supplement available today.
Over 500 studies exist of the ergogenic benefits of creatine supplementation showing that it can:
- Accelerate Strength and Muscle Gains
- Decrease Myostatin for Extreme Muscle Growth
- Support Intracellular Hydration
- Replenish ATP for Enhanced Performance
- Reduce Fatigue & Enhance Endurance
Approximately 2 grams of creatine are found in individuals that do not supplement and maintain a diet including animal-based proteins.
Those who do supplement can increase their body’s internal creatine pool by 10-40% depending on diet and total lean muscle mass.
More available creatine = more ATP = more energy = training stronger for longer.
Pair Creatine Monohydrate Revolution™ with any MuscleSport pre or post workout product and get ready to hop aboard the gainz train!

Creatine is an amino acid (broken down protein) derived compound produced in the body that serves as the primary fuel source (ATP) for short duration, high-intensity activities such as sprinting and weightlifting.
Creatine is stored primarily in muscle tissue, and it is used for rephosphorylating ADP into ATP.
This means that when our muscles use up our energy stores, creatine helps to replenish those stores in a very rapid manner.
Approximately 2 grams of creatine are found in individuals that do not supplement and maintain a diet including animal-based proteins. Those who do supplement can increase their body’s internal creatine pool by 10 to 40% depending on diet and total lean muscle mass.
Natural sources of creatine include meat, eggs, fish, and milk but you would have to consume ~20 steaks/day in order to fully saturate creatine stores; while 5 grams a day of creatine monohydrate for 20 days will accomplish the same goal.
- Improves maximal strength
- Increases anaerobic power
- Increases fat-free mass
- Improves muscular endurance
- Helps keep you hydrated in extreme outdoor conditions
- May have cognitive and overall brain health benefits
- May increase testosterone and reduce myostatin
- Offers neurological protection during traumatic brain injury (concussion)
- Has been evaluated as a potential therapeutic agent in a variety of medical conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases
The ISSN (International Society of Sports Nutrition) position stand on creatine monohydrate found that short-term creatine monohydrate supplementation has been reported to improve maximal power/strength (5–15%), work performed during sets of maximal effort muscle contractions (5–15%), single-effort sprint performance (1–5%), and work performed during repetitive sprint performance (5–15%).
Long-term creatine monohydrate supplementation appears to enhance the overall quality of training, leading to 5 to 15% greater gains in strength and performance.
Q: How should I take creatine monohydrate?
A: As a dietary supplement, mix 1 scoop of creatine monohydrate in 8-10 ounces of water or flavored beverage and consume immediately post workout. On non-training days, take 1 scoop in the morning.
Q: What other MuscleSport raw products can I stack with creatine monohydrate?
A: To promote optimal muscle recovery and glycogen resynthesis we recommend stacking Creatine MagnaPower with our Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin, L-Glutamine, and IBCAA 2:1:1 and consuming immediately post workout.
Q: I heard creatine can cause kidney problems and cause cramping. Is that true?
A: Absolutely not. Creatine is the most studied and effective supplement ever…period. Over 500 studies have been done on creatine and none have shown to cause any adverse side effects.
However, you should expect to see big improvements in strength, power, and endurance after taking creatine.
Q: Is Creatine Monohydrate a steroid?
A: No, not at all. It is a tripeptide (3 amino acids - glycine, arginine, and methionine). It just happens to be very effective!
Q: Does Creatine need to be cycled or loaded?
A: Nope! When creatine first came out, it was thought that supplementation might reduce the body's natural ability to make its own creatine. This has since been found not to occur, so creatine does not need to be cycled.
Creatine also does not need to be loaded, but using a loading phase will be more effective. The best strategy is to consume 20g of creatine for 5 days then maintain with a daily 5g dose. However, 5g daily will eventually (over the course of several weeks) increase muscle creatine to the max.
