Rated 5 out of 5 by Millie1 Swanson's Brand Incredible Creatine!
As a woman new to Body Building and 'of a certain age" I was a bit afraid to add Creatine to my supplement regimen due to what I had read elsewhere. However, after reading several reviews at Swanson's Vitamins, I was finally convinced to try it out. I am soooo glad I DID! What I discovered is that it did not make be bloated and it DID increase my strength on almost all of my lifts! It takes about 3 weeks of taking 5grams daily (that's the scoop size that comes with it) to fully saturate your muscles. Of course that fact that the price is outstanding and that it is the highest quality you can find (i.e., Creapure) makes it even more outstanding. I highly recommend Swanson's Creatine Powder if you want to improve your performance in the gym.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KeJorn So far so good
Good value and so far, I think it is doing what it should be. I take it daily to keep my creatine levels up. Make sure to mix in warm water/liquid or even hot tea to ensure it dissolves into the drink - however this is apparently a common issue with any creatine supplement.

I've used most all the creatine products in the past, but this is the only one that does not cause me any stomach upset. It's made in Germany and I feel it's much higher quality than other creatines on the market, which are predominately manufactured in China. And please don't fall for the newly engineered creatine products. They're equivalent at best, much more expensive, and can be dangerous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shwansonhooper Amazing, better workouts
For 0.10 a serving, Creapure and actually works best creatine ive bought. have had trouble with other creatines, no probs here, would recommend to anyone and everyone working out, you'll put 10lbs on every exercise after a week of continuous use, better pumps, i dont recommend 'loading' just continuous use, BUY IT, and pick up that WEIGHT

I used creatine for a couple years when I was in my early to mid 40's. The effect is profound for guys who are working out with heavy weights, with diligent effort to build muscles. I have no idea if it has an effect on people putting out little effort at this, or who are not focused upon building muscles. Creatine makes it easier to have quicker gains in the amount of weight you can increase (benching, curling, etc.), as well as the size of your muscles.
I am now 59, and haven’t used creatine since about 1998 or 1999. I stopped building muscles, not wanting them to turn to flab as I got older, so began running to stay in shape instead. Over the years I have worked out with weights off and on (but with far less weight) to keep somewhat fit. But having become weaker and smaller than I want to be, I have again turned to creatine to build back up at least moderately. Swanson always has the best source and quality of whatever supplement you need, and at the best prices. I have been extraordinarily pleased with their Creapure.
In merely a matter of a few weeks, my gains have been amazing (and this is at age 59)! Understand this would not be the case if I had never developed the muscles to begin with, that have atrophied over time. But when I was in my 40’s, I first quickly gained back what I had lost from about age 20. Then the gains stopped, or crept up so slowly that it seemed I was getting nowhere until I added the creatine. After that I increased my bench pressing from 245 pounds to reps with 325, an amount I really didn’t want to surpass, because clothes become difficult to fit without tailoring...and I wouldn’t remain the same age forever. I didn’t wear showy clothing—usually dressed in suits, or at least dress shirts and ties, according to my career. But I noticed people responding to me differently—I mean people I had never met. An intangible, but clearly evident.
Actually what sparked my attention for creatine recently was a suggestion that it improves memory. I’d like that! I know it’s safe, and I felt it was also time to increase my muscle tone again. I am super pleased with the results.

Rated 4 out of 5 Quality Creatine filled to the top!
For the quality and the price, Swanson Premium
Creatine Powder is a no-brainer. I have plenty of Creatine to last me a good amount of time. I take a scoop before each workout and the results have been good. Highly recommend this product from Swanson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HealthyGuyNY Good supplement for my workouts...
Creapure is the BEST form of creatine there is and I use this for my workouts and it also makes you look slightly more muscular than you would without taking this supplement. That, along with extra energy for your workouts makes this one supplement I enjoy taking.

Began taking it and noticed a difference in my workouts right away. I have much more endurance and have increased my weights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by samtank18 best creatine out there!
Creapure is the purest form of creatine monohydrate, as it's produced in Germany and not China like a lot of the other creatines. It is the form that most of the studies are done on and will increase strength and muscular endurance. You have to mix it with warm water for it to dissolve then just add some ice cubes back in to make it cold again. Just be sure to drink plenty of water. throughout the day!

Very good price and it seems to last forever. It doesn't mix very well as I've used it in water, milk, protein shakes and superfood shakes. I can say that is very effective as I can tell a difference in my strength/muscles almost immediately. Make sure you drink plenty of water though or you may become dehydrated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peach80 Great Value for the Price
I had been using a creatine product that used Creapure as well from a rival site but was paying over 2x the amount. This product came quickly and is a great quality creatine. The container was also full to the brim, which was nice as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sgtrip Excellent Creatine
The two main sources of creatine are Germany and China, with the better quality creatine sourced from Germany. Low quality creatine contains impurities such as creatnine, which causes bloating and other problems. I would love to buy creatine sourced from the USA, but I am glad to find this good quality creatine that has caused no bloating. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BadgerBoy Swanson Premium Creatine
Swanson Premium Creatine is a top value. Those of us who use Creatine Monohydrate daily, know how it aids recovery. It's especially helpful to me as I age. My daily maintenance amount is only 2.5 grams (recommended daily amounts vary with your weight) Used after lifting together with Swanson Premium Whey, whole milk, some fruit and ice in a blender for a recovery drink and you could look and feel years younger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ralph3991 Amazing Creatine
There is a huge difference between creatines. If you never owned a creatine that was Creapure, your creatine is no good. Creapure is the best creatine on the market.
I had another brand of creatine, that I purchased at a retail store and I got 1 lb for $20 (non creapure) It was a big waste.
This creatine, I barely taste it, mixes so easily, and the results are so much more visible.
This is the creatine to get.

Rated 4 out of 5 by brj0000 It works likes it supposed to...
Been on it about three weeks now, and can tell a definite difference in muscle bulk. I've also noted that weight-training sessions are improved in terms of performance and recovery. So, that's what creatine's supposed to do, and this product delivers.
Some notes - you will gain some weight with this product, so be prepared for that if weight gain is not your goal. Also, everything I've read about creatine stated that in the loading phase (1st week), there may be some gastrointestinal distress. That's putting it mildly. However, it calmed down after a couple of days and hasn't been an issue since.
