Since its introduction in the mid-90’s, Creatine monohydrate has taken the sports nutrition industry by the reigns and never let go. What’s the secret to its success? This naturally occurring metabolite is stored in our muscle fibers and plays an extensive role in the production and distribution of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) – the fuel behind each and every muscle contraction. NOW® 100% pure micronized Creatine Monohydrate powder offers smaller particle size for super-fast absorption and easy mixing, and is completely free of additives & preservatives.* This 6 time award winning formulation has become a favorite among some of the world’s most elite athletes.
