Most athletes think of creatine as a long-term supplement that has to be taken over time to enhance muscle and strength gains. However, Micronized Creatine can also be used to provide an immediate performance boost.

A recent study completed by researchers at Creighton University has shown that a short loading phase (20 grams/day) for a just few days resulted in a 20% boost in power. With information gained from this new study, strength athletes may want to load up on creatine monohydrate a few days prior to a big workout or sports event to maximize performance.
