Creatine monohydrate is well-known for it’s ability to increase strength, lean muscle growth, and endurance. Many people don’t realize that creatine is scientifically-proven to optimize brain power. It’s benefits include improved working memory, long-lasting mental energy, and neuroprotection. Our German micronized creatine monohydrate features exceptional purity and absorption.

Fenugreek Seed Extract activates the insulin receptor, creating an effective way to improve creatine uptake without having to consume simple carbohydrates. This herbal extract also been shown to increase bioavailable testosterone, improve endurance, and promote longevity.

Creatine and sodium are “co-transporters” which means that creatine absorption is dependent on having adequate levels of sodium. Himalayan Pink Salt is the highest quality and most nutrient-dense source of sodium on the planet. Hand-mined from deep in the Himalayan Mountains, this pristine salt contains more than 84 trace minerals and key electrolytes for optimal hydration.

How It Works

Creatine is best-known for it’s ability to improve muscle gains and overall physical performance. Many people aren't aware that supplementing with creatine can also significantly boost brain power. It’s been demonstrated to enhance cognition, delay mental fatigue. improve neuroprotection, and promote anti-aging.

Himalayan Pink Salt is included in BioCreatine™ to optimize sodium levels for maximum creatine uptake. Fenugreek extract is added to enhance creatine’s absorption, comparable to rates studied when creatine is co-ingested with a simple carbohydrate source.

Creatine Monohydrate

Creatine is a naturally occurring amino acid that helps supply energy to cells, especially muscle cells. [1]

It acts like a battery by storing ATP (adenosine triphosphate) that the cells can use as fuel at any time. [2] Creatine supplementation increases the size of your battery so that you can sustain long-lasting mental energy or quickly recover from a workout.

Creatine is best-known for it’s ability to improve muscle gains and overall physical performance. [3-6] Many people aren't aware that supplementing with creatine can also significantly boost brain power. It’s been demonstrated to enhance cognition [7-10], delay mental fatigue [11], improve neuroprotection [12,13], and promote anti-aging. [14,15]

In its natural state creatine can be found in foods like beef and pork, although most of it gets broken down during cooking.

A double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover trial on 45 young adults found that “Creatine supplementation had a significant positive effect on both working memory and intelligence, both tasks that require speed of processing”. [16]

A double-blind study at Penn State University concluded that “Creatine supplementation resulted in a significant improvement in peak power output during all 5 sets of jump squats and a significant improvement in repetitions during all 5 sets of bench presses”. [17]

An extensive rodent study conducted by 20 German scientists was published in the Neurobiology of Aging Journal in 2008. It concluded that “Creatine may be a promising food supplement to promote healthy human aging”. [18]

Himalayan Pink Salt (sodium chloride + trace minerals)

Creatine and sodium are “co-transporters”, meaning that creatine absorption is dependent on having adequate levels of sodium. [19-21] However people typically take creatine after working out when their body’s sodium levels are severely depleted (caused by sweating and electrolyte dilution from drinking a lot of water).

Himalayan Pink Salt is included in BioCreatine™ to optimize sodium levels for maximum creatine uptake.

Regarded as the highest quality and most nutrient-dense source of sodium on the planet, Himalayan Pink Salt contains more than 84 trace minerals and key electrolytes for optimal health and hydration.

A study examining the creatine transporter mechanism found that creatine is absorbed “predominantly by the way of a sodium-chloride dependent creatine transporter” and indicated that “combining creatine and sodium may additionally enhance creatine uptake.” [22]

When studying creatine uptake in skeletal muscle, researchers at the University of Missouri found that “the primary means to add creatine to muscle is uptake of creatine through the sodium-dependent creatine transporter.” [23]

A Scandinavian study concluded that creatine “uptake is largely Na+ (sodium) dependent in soleus muscle.” [24]

Fenugreek Seed Extract

In the mid-1990's it was discovered that creatine's muscle absorption could be significantly increased with high-glycemic carbohydrates (by simulating an insulin response). [25-29] Insulin assists in the transport of creatine and other nutrients into muscle cells. This is why most commercially available creatine products include sugar or some other form of carbohydrates.

Fenugreek Extract naturally activates the insulin receptor [30, 31], creating an effective way to improve creatine absorption without without having to consume carbohydrates. In fact research has shown that creatine + fenugreek is just as effective as creatine + carbohydrates. [32]

Fenugreek Extract also helps achieve peak performance by increasing testosterone [33, 34] and endurance. [35]

In a 2011 study on 47 men scientists found that “ingesting fenugreek in combination with creatine monohydrate may be an effective strategy for improving creatine uptake similarly to dextrose without having to ingest large amount of simple carbohydrates.” They also discovered “significant increases in bench press 1 rep max and lean mass”. [36]

Published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition, a study conducted on 30 college-age men found that “500 mg of daily (fenugreek) supplementation significantly affected percent body fat, total testosterone, and bioavailable testosterone compared with a placebo in a double-blind fashion.” [37]

When studying the effect of fenugreek seed extract on endurance capacity in mice, Japanese researchers suggested that “improvement in swimming endurance by the administration of fenugreek is caused by the increase in utilization of fatty acids as an energy source” [38]
