To Load Or Not To Load: That Is The Question!
Creatine monohydrate (or anhydrous) is king, not five different forms of creatine, alkaline creatine, or creatine decanate. The scientific literature is conclusive: you need about 3.5 grams of pure creatine daily to eventually reach muscle saturation. Creatine monohydrate is about 73% creatine and 27% monohydrate salt. Monohydrate salt increases solubility in water (it mixes well with water).
No need to reinvent the wheel and try to sexy up what already works well. Build Fast Formula is releasing a straight creatine monohydrate product that’s enough to last 60 days, plus a loading phase.
Pure creatine at 3.5 grams a day leads to muscle saturation in about 30 days. With a 20-gram daily loading phase you can reach creatine muscle saturation in about 5-7 days, followed by a maintenance dose of 3.5 grams to maintain peak levels.
Note that most studies associated with beneficial ergogenic effects from creatine use a loading phase. The choice to load is entirely up to you. You can get stronger in the beginning with a loading phase or increase strength later without the loading phase. If you decide not to load, BFF creatine bottles last 75 days instead of 60.
