German Creatine (60 servings)

5 out of 5 rating for German Creatine (60 servings)
Had a Tub courtesy of Clickster due to a contest I won, here are my impressions of it:
First of all, a while back, I had decided to run a bulk and got the Bulk Creatine from Nutraplanet. Many of you followed my log and heard me complaining that I had OVERDOSED to 10mg on it and ended up a huge swollen (and gassy...) blob, my mistake for overdosing haha. Now after proper advisement (See mr.cooper69 for more details) I lowered my dosage to 3mg ED and the bloat...after 2 weeks, did NOT subside, I am real prone to bloating from Creatine, yes we all know Monohydrate has this particular trait on many of us. Now upon winning a "random number guess" contest, (by going literally from 001 to 021 in an avalanche of posts) I finally nailed the winning number, with it being my age haha. So, upon this Clickster proceeded to send me a Free Tub of:
AX Frankfurt...I mean GERMAN Creatine:
Athletic Xtreme German Creatine (60 servings): Discount German Creatine Supplements
My final thoughts upon being on it for a little over 2 weeks are:
It deserves straight up 10/10 In my books, for further credibility I will explain the reason of this note, and also you can feel free to check my previous logs that have been sponsored and NON sponsored and you shall see I have no shame on making comments upon areas of improvement for a supplement IMHO. But more on that for another time.
Now the aspects I valued this creatine are quite the standard aspects many of us base ourselves for our creatines, since they are fairly normal and over-reviewed stuff, but at least this shall provide some insight into the ideas that some of us look for in a Creatine powder and help possibly as future reference in case this product is to be purchased.
-First of all Dosage Scoop: 10/10 , why? It includes one, and furthermore, it IS 5g as checked with my scales to a full well rounded scoop, while bigger guys DO need this dosage I can attest it is true to its label, I however only need 3g for being such a smurf...I mean Troll.
-Content of the tub: 10/10 It does come with the exact amount (give or take a hair of weight) of Creatine proposed and makes up for the amount of servings desired and MORE if you need smaller dosages like me :D (Yay hurray for being an ant! I mean...Troll!!), so price wise this is a solid product, but WHY am I making this claim? For many reasons, one being looked at here, the contents come in a neat MICRONIZED powder that is NOT clogged , or lumpy or with any sort of surprise package in (pun intended). It comes in pure powder seriously, no lumps or big chunks to break that would make for misdosage should you be lazy as to not mash it. This is of value to me since previous creatines I have taken have come as rocky road lumps and it is quite annoying to be crushing them for the desired dosage.
-Solubility: 10/10 seriously, my previous creatine brand sometimes did not dissolve well and left me with the task of om nom noming lumps in my mouth, if you have had to do this it is NOT pleasent, specially if you make your own Pre/Post workout concoctions sometimes and the lump takes in stronger-tasting stuff and you have to munch on it....as for solubility it dissolves alomost instantly , and I have tried this on a super saturated mix of 8-10 oz of cold water with 3g of German Creatine , 10g BCAAs , 6g citrulline malate and some bulk stim powders, just to mention some examples, and it has ALL mixed perfectly.
-Easy transition: 10/10 This is of special importance for me as I can attest for purity in this aspect, seeing how I have switched creatine brands while "on cycle" (of creatine, don't think I am taking ph/ds aas for christ sake lol) and good lord...its the worst feeling for my tummy since it yields gasses, bloating, further water holding and bigger squeeshy feeling due to more subcutaneous water being held haha.
So on this I base my review and can stand by my word of taking it over again once it runs out, aces in my books and finally an end to my look for GOOD creatine monohydrate, as I do not present gasses, GI discomfort, too much bloating (really MINIMAL and its NORMAL), while still enjoying the many benefits of creatine, along with my favorite one, increased strength :).
For the record, neither Clickster nor AX asked me to do this, I am doing this as a satisfied costumer who really thanks the oportunity of trying out this wonderful new staple of mine. And as you can see...well I am not telling you it does miracles so its not "overhyping or pimping" but merely telling you guys, how my experience and thoughts upon AX German Creatine have come to exists thanks Clickster..

were u using this as a stand alone,besides the basic multi,fish oil etc...? 10/10,a perfect creatine,really?Enough where you know what ever u gained or whatever benefits you had were straight from the creatine?
as for AX i was told 2 weeks ago i was having some samples mailed to me,nothing yet. I got an email last week from them asking me to leave a review,yet i still have nothing ,wth!

I guess the review wasn't clear enough little munchkin. It explains what and why I give this creatine a 10/10 in my books. Now for further inquiry I have ran all those products you mentioned (except multi's, only run them on a cut) recently and over a LONG time haha so I know what to get from each. Now my comparison standpoint comes form having ran before ON Creapure and also Nutraplanet domestic creatine. I have found less bloat, better solubility and mixability when added to water/juice/milk or even just straight up inside my mouth and swishing with water.
If you have no knowledge of creatine Jay , or what expect from it you can go ahead do a Google search to learn about the most well known supplement (and proven) in increasing strength in supplement history. It's ok Jay, not everyone has taken the time to read articles or studies.
Anything else you might want to know? Oh btw to answer your question, I went through a stim break and cut out all products, also it coincided with the Cycling off from my Fish Oils (I cycle everything) for 2 of the 4 weeks and for that time it was taken alone, aside from some drugs I had to take for some minor cold symptoms. Is that enough for you? Or shall I link you to some creatine supplementation 101 ?>SNS-Glycophase<Serious Nutrition Solutions Rep
