Nutrisport Creatine Bombs are designed to aid recovery from training, improve gains in strength, size and power and improve high intensity anaerobic performance. Each creatine tablet provides 1g creatine monohydrate and 1g maltodextrin. Creatine monohydrate is possibly one of the best researched and effective supplements on the market for improving gains in size and strength. For creatine to be effective it should be taken daily, therefore using this supplement would require taking 3-5 tablets daily.
Nutrisport Creatine Bombs also contain 1g of maltodextrin per tablet. Ingesting carbohydrate with creatine does help its uptake into the muscles because the carbs cause a rise in insulin (the hormone primarily responsible for drawing substrates into the muscle cells), however 1g of carbohydrate is going to have very little impact on insulin levels and therefore won’t aid the uptake of creatine.
There is much debate about whether to load creatine (e.g. take 20g/day for 5 days then 3-5g thereafter) or to just take 5g/day consistently. There is no real overall difference in muscle creatine content after loading for 1 week then 3 weeks of 3g/day compared to 5g/day for 4 weeks. It is likely that the idea of loading was popularised by supplement companies wanting to sell more creatine.
Flavours: chocolate, orange, strawberry
Sizes: 50 tabs, 300 tabs
- One of the most effective and well researched supplements to improve gains in lean mass with resistance training.
- Each tablet does not contain enough carbohydrate to aid in the uptake of creatine by the muscles, as is claimed by this supplement.
- Various other benefits of creatine monohydrate include, improved neurological function, antioxidant effect, reduced risk of some diseases (e.g. cardiovascular disease, dementia and Alzheimer’s).
Who’s it for
This supplement is suitable for anyone doing regular training and wanting to improve performance as well as gains in strength and size. It is suitable not just for resistance training, but also for sporting performance such as running, cycling, football, rugby etc.
How to use
Take 3 tablets (3g of creatine) daily. For best results take them after your training/sporting event with a carbohydrate drink or post workout shake. It is worth considering that a 50 tablet tub would only last 16 days on this consumption protocol.
