Creatine supplements have been around for a long time and you will find no shortage of them no matter where you go. Pre-workout, post-workout, or even intra-workout, creatine has been used to help gym goers and athletes really go further and push harder. I decided to give one of the intra-workout creatine products a go and this led me to NutriTech CreaTech Loaded.
About Nutritech CreaTech Loaded
CreaTech is a fully loaded intra-workout cocktail that is more than just creatine in a bottle. Its constituents are vast, and its ingredients are many, making this more than just any regular intra-workout creatine powder.
First off, it contains 5g of creatine in the form of creatine monohydrate and creatine hydrochloride (2.5g of each to make the 5g total). There really is not much difference between the two types of creatine. Hydrochloride has been purported to have faster absorption rates than monohydrate but they pretty much both get in settle the same. Monohydrate is purer and is very professionally researched. Furthermore, neither will leave you holding any subcutaneous water. That is just a myth.
CreaTech has also been loaded with a high dose of BCAAs and multivitamins. This ensures that you get that intra-workout amino acid spike as well as the vitamins and minerals to keep you functioning well and healthily. This rounded off really well with a healthy amount of cluster dextrin as its fast absorbing carbohydrate source to make sure you have a decent intra-workout insulin spike.
CreaTech works really well as an intra-workout. Taking it about 20 to 30 minutes into your workout is a good option and it really does feel like a good pick-me-up when you get to the halfway point of your session. Just add a dose with a good amount of water and you are all set.
It does take a bit of time to mix in well though. Once it mixes with the water, it is initially very foamy and stays that way for a few short minutes after wards. I found that if you mix it before your session and leave it in your fridge, then once you get to gym and you are halfway through your session, just whip it out for a refreshing pick-me-up to keep you going strong.
It tastes really good. I had the cool midnight razz, and it went down really well. It mixed well with the water when I did the whole mix and place in the fridge routine. There weren’t any unwanted particles floating around and it had a smooth texture.
This product has a serving size of 62.5g, which is its 1 scoop. That is a hefty amount of powder, but it does allow you to use a whole shaker bottle of water (or however much water you want depending on the concentration strength you enjoy). Just sip on this serving gradually as you go through your session and you are all good.
This product gets a 4 out of 5 for me. Its constituents are great, it tastes great and really does the job it needs to. It is also affordable and is a good show of bang for your buck. You really get your money’s worth with this product.
