Don't Waste Your Money On Creatine Serum by Shawn LeBrun
Creatine Serum is a liquid creatine supplement that's sold in a dropper bottle.
Just by packaging it in this manner, the company gives you the illusion that it's "drug-like" and more powerful than other supplements.
They're attempting to bash powder creatine and say that their liquid creatine is much better. This is their attempt to discredit creatine powder in order to generate greater sales of their liquid product.
Because the Creatine Serum is in a liquid form does not add any special ability to the creatine. By making it liquid, they are trying to mislead you into thinking that their product is superior when no evidence even comes close to suggesting this. In fact, the science indicates the exact opposite due to creatine's rapid degradation in a liquid medium.
Just because it's a liquid does not mean your body does not have to digest it. In fact, there is no evidence and certainly no scientific study showing that this creatine serum is absorbed, enters the bloodstream, or saturates muscle tissue any faster than powdered creatine.
And here's the real kicker...
An entire bottle of Creatine Serum contains less than 1 gram of creatine. Less than 1 gram in the entire bottle. You would have to drink 6 full bottles a day just to get 5 grams of creatine. 6 bottles a day!
Not only that, creatine in a liquid medium will degrade into the useless byproduct creatinine. And tests show this to be true. Creatine Serum has over 5 times the amount of creatinine as it does creatine.
Creatine in a liquid, if it remained stable, would act no differently in the body than creatine in a powder form.
The statement on the creatine serum product page about powder creatine, "Causes water retention resulting in dehydration, bloating and cramping." is incorrect. The creatine molecule is the same whether it's in a liquid medium or a powder, so it will impart the same physiological effect either way.
Because creatine is in a liquid does not mean it will function any differently. Also, the negatives listed on their bottle for powder creatine are simply not true and have no scientific validity.
One of their claims is that regular creatine can cause dehydration. If creatine caused dehydration it would cause this whether it was in a powder form or liquid form. It would not be because of the powder. It would be because of creatine's physiological effect on the body. But there is no scientific evidence indicating that creatine causes dehydration.
As you can see, I would definitely recommend that you stay away from creatine serum.
By all means, you will want to use creatine, its one of the safest, most effective supplements for muscle and strength gains. But stick with creatine monohydrate in the more stable powder form.
I've had the best results from using micronized creatine
Micronized creatine is a creatine that is manufactured into an ultra-fine powder. Each particle of micronized creatine is 20 to 25 times smaller than regular creatine creating much more surface area for quicker absorption and more efficient utilization.
You will see far more positive results from micronized creatine than you would creatine serum.
