100% quality raw material.
We use globally recognised premium Creapure® raw material made exclusively in Germany. The trademarked quality combines maximised purity and maximised efficacy with a perfectly balanced dosage. Some creatine monohydrates from China and Eastern Europe display poor biocompatibility and insufficient solubility. Quality Creapure, on the other hand, creates a crystal clear powder with the highest degree of purity.
For highest requirements.
No, capsules don’t have to be made of processed porcine and bovine offal. In keeping with our purely plant-based raw materials, we use vegan capsule shells. The origin? 100% cellulose fibres from natural, renewable raw materials.

Take 4 capsules a day with plenty of liquid (water or fruit juice). Preferably immediately before exercising. Make sure to drink plenty of fluids. We recommend drinking at least 2.5 - 3.5 litres of water a day when taking creatine on a regular basis.
We recommend mixing our creatine powder with grape juice or other fruit juices. Grape juice in particular contains glucose which causes an insulin spike in the body and allows creatine to be transported around the body and absorbed faster.

Creatine capsules contents
General information about creatine capsules
Creatine capsules are easy to dose and easy to carry around with you, making them one of the most popular supplements for muscle building. Thanks to their compact form, the capsules can be taken anywhere so that they are always at hand. This makes them the ideal companion for training, work or long trips.
The active substance creatine is widely used both in competitive sports and amateur sports and is one of the most researched substances. Creatine capsules are effective for quick, intense workouts and are ideal as support for weight training or team sports.
The pharmaceutical form of creatine capsules is subject to particularly wide variations in quality. The biocompatibility of creatine capsules is closely linked to the quality of the raw materials and the nature of the capsule (vegan vs. animal-based capsule).
In the world of creatine capsules in particular, a large number of inferior monohydrate products produced in Eastern Europe or Asia can be found online. You cannot rule out finding impurities or poorly-processes capsules in these products.
In Germany, production and manufacturing processes for creatine are subject to strict regulations. The German manufacturer Creapure® is the premium brand for creatine and a worldwide market leader.
Creatine capsules by Creapure® are characterised by maximised biocompatibility and maximised efficacy.

Creatine powder for muscle building & strength training
Creatine capsules are ideal for athletes intent on building muscle and gaining weight. Regularly taking creatine and increasing creatine phosphate storage in the body increases the amount of energy available to the body during exercise which it can use to increase strength and improve performance.
The effect of taking creatine capsules becomes apparent when doing intense basic training that requires all of the body's strength. That includes bench presses, deadlifts, squats and military presses.
The effects of creatine capsules
In principle, creatine acts as an additional source of energy.
Regularly taking creatine capsules replenishes the creatine phosphate stores and supports the formation of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) in the muscle cells. This messenger substance ensures that during short, intense workouts lactic acid does not build up in our muscles prematurely. In addition, there are features relating to the mode of action of the powder in creatine capsules which must be observed.
Unlike creatine powder creatine in capsule form is not immediately available to the muscles because it must first "escape" the capsule before being released into the body and the cells.
As a result of the longer absorption time, creatine capsules must be taken well in advance of exercise. Only then can the creatine increase your strength and support your performance during your workout. The capsules should be taken at least 60 minutes before training or physical stress. This gives the creatine enough time to complete its route through the body.
If you don't time it properly, the effect of the creatine can simply "fizzle out" during your workout. As a result, athletes who don't want to have to plan so far ahead and have the opportunity to prepare themselves shakes should use creatine powder rather than capsules.
Who should use creatine capsules?
Creatine capsules are ideal for building muscle and gaining weight. Due to the improved energy supply in the muscle, training plateaus can easily be overcome and you can progressively increase the weight in your weight training in order to build muscle.
You can also make a weight gain of 1-2 kilos with the help of creatine capsules. This arises as a result of the increased water retention in the muscles' glycogen stores.
Creatine capsules are ideal for athletes who are looking to increase their explosive power, build muscle and gain weight.
Thanks to the set dosage and the fact that they can easily be carried around, creatine capsules are ideal for on the go and can easily be kept in your gym bag.
The correct intake of creatine capsules
It is important to take creatine capsules on non-training days as well. Only then can the body permanently replenish its creatine phosphate stores and provide the necessary energy for an intense workout.
The best time to take creatine is in the morning, because the body is also very sensitive to insulin at this time and can swiftly transport the creatine to the muscle cells.
Depending on the dosage, 4 creatine capsules should be taken on training days.
The body's muscle cells are very sensitive to insulin after stimulation and can transport and absorb creatine better.
Possible side effects of creatine capsules
Overdosing is difficult due to the prescribed quantity of creatine in the capsules. You should, however, stick to the recommended dosage.
Depending on the nature of the creatine capsules intolerance can arise as a result of the other ingredients in the capsule. Most creatine capsules are made of gelatine (beef or pork), high-quality products are made from plant-based cellulose capsules.
Interactions with or inefficiencies caused by other capsule products or medications are virtually impossible.
An adequate intake of fluids is of primary importance when taking creatine on a regular basis. You should drink no less than 2 - 3 litres of water per day.
Rare side effects may include nausea, flatulence or diarrhoea - but these usually only occur at high doses or during the loading phase, in which large amounts of creatine are taken over a short period.
Water retention can have a negative effect on muscle definition - on the other hand, it also increases your power.
