The folks at Optimum Nutrition seems to truly believe that creatine is something everyone should take. Their micronized creatine powder is now available in a very large 2000 gram container, priced at a mere 40 dollars.
The powder consists simply of creatine monohydrate. The product is claimed to be completely pure and free of fillers or other substances. In one respect, it is good that they do not tout the presence of several extraneous ingredients that will do little to enhance the effects of the creatine.
In What Manner Does Optimum Nutrition Micronized Creatine Function?
The product works as a relatively simple creatine monohydrate supplement. No caffeine or other supposed performance boosting additives are included in this product.
Similarly to alternative creatine monohydrate products, the diminutive particle size of micronized creatine allows for faster digestion and muscle absorption. This is a very straightforward product in the way it functions.
Is it Chalky in Taste?
In some ways it is, in some ways it is not. The substance is not flavoured, but it does have its own peculiar taste. While the taste is not necessarily bad, it is not exactly appealing either. I am rather put off by the grittiness of the product’s texture, though this does not pose a massive dilemma for me personally.
Rated from 1-10…
I would assign this product a 7.5. Optimum Nutrition’s Micronized Creatine product is plagued by many of the same flaws of other budget offerings, namely that it is not very mixable and it does not taste great.
But, as is also true of many budget creatine products on the market, those willing to forgive these small problems will find that such products tend to be fairly effective. As someone who has always placed a high priority on value, I have always respected Optimum Nutrition and its products.
