Usually use Cell Tech but figured i would give this a try. It had some advantages and disadvantages. The biggest advantage is i seem to build better size without the bloating of most creatine's. I get the Orange flavor cause i seem to like that better then most other flavors but the Orange flavor for this was really bad. It smelled bad, it tasted bad, and also left a really bad after taste. I think the biggest problem with taste was it had a chemical kind of taste top it. Great Product, Terrible Taste.

I have taken Creacore for almost 2 weeks now and I can say that the effects are very significant I feel a lot less stress in my muscles and my muscles get tired less frequently. This is simply awesome!

The product it self is amazing, I had only ever tried regular creatine Mono which made me feel lousy and bloated. I tried another Creatine HCL and never saw any results. But the first day I tried this product I noticed it (which was surprising to myself). Its incredible and seriously makes a profound difference in my training. I tend to mix 1 scoop with 24 oz water and it is good for me, still quite strong which I enjoy. It mixes really well, ALTHOUGH; Blue Raspberry tends to get a little gel like substance that forms at the bottom if I don't consistently shake it before drinking each sip (only with this flavour, but only had it once) Sour Apple is amazing in flavour! strong, a little sour but not so much it hurts, just a little sweet taste. It is also good to mix with lemon lime drinks (gatorade powder is what I did!) I rated Lemon Lime bad because when I had it it made me gag very badly and made me feel sick, THIS WAS THE OLD VERSION however. The new version was much better when I tried my brothers OVERALL; amazing product, that gives actual results at a great price point, it is always in my stack!

I like the price and effect of this product. While the effects aren't mind blowing, Creatine Hydrochloride is among the best creatines on the market. I do feel an energy boost and muscle fullness with it. I would recommend.

Just finished first run with this HCL, very effective on terms of strength/energy gains, have definitely noticed over the last 4-6 weeks. Stomach does not cooperate with it for some reason, tried 1 scoop pre and 1 scoop post to start then changed to directions with 2 scoops post workout to prevent bloating during workout, still haven't been able to shake the gut rot/boated feeling I get from it. The orange is mediocre on terms of taste as well, tastes like pez candies or something of the like... Going to go back to reg Mono, haven't had as bad of problems consuming it with protein/BCAA post workout.

I've been using CreaCore for 4 weeks now, since my local store won't carry the ON bulk powder. I give it a 7 because it's creatine, and it works. But it mixes very poorly outside of a shaker cup, and it coats my teeth with stickyness or something else.. It's very expensive locally too, if I got it off BB.com I would of been able to stomach throwing it out. Next time! I highly recommend an unflavoured powder if you hate sugar replacements and sugar. Duh right?

[Sorry for the long explanation, but for creatine, I found I needed to provide some more detail] For creatine supplementation, I choose MUSCLETECH’s CREACORE. Not only does CREACORE deliver a highly concentrated dose of Creatine Hydrochloride (HCL). Not as much (for building muscle (for me)) as it is for strength gains both during and after workouts in the gym. Creatine hydrochloride (HCL) is a substance that is naturally produced in the body, and has shown to increase the function of muscles. Creatine triggers the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which stores and is used as energy within muscle fibers. Creatine HCL maximizes a person’s strength as well as the time to exhaustion. It typically does not cause side effects that can occur with other supplements. Creatine HCL is soluble in water, so it can be absorbed into the bloodstream easier than creatine monohydrate products. Other Creatine Monohydrate has also been known to cause digestive problems, bloating, and water retention. Unlike many monohydrate forms, creatine hydrochloride can be used continuously without any detrimental effects on the body. So there’s loading phase waiting or any need to transition to an “Off Cycle”. One other big benefit to creatine HCL is that it does not get converted to creatinine, which is a waste product that can build up in the muscles – affecting other chemical processes. HCL is absorbed by the intestines more effectively; therefore, more viable in the building and strengthening of muscle. If you ever have more questions, just ask an Exercise Physiologist such as myself – as we understand all of the micro-processes of the human body, and how anatomical adaptations take effect.

After finishing an 80 serving tub of Creacore, I can say it is one of the best creatine supplements I've used so far. I would normally take one scoop on training days post-workout, but on heavy days I would take two. I was able to consistently improve my strength and muscle mass while taking Creacore and noticed no water retention. The only reason I didn't give Creacore a perfect 10 is because the lemon lime flavor tends to be a little too bitter but otherwise tastes okay. Avoid the Sour Apple flavor like the plague. From it's very reasonable price point, to number of servings and excellent quality, Creacore is definitely worth a try.

HCL is a lot more expensive then monohydrate, hands down, I know and accept that fact. However, Creacore blows any monohydrate I have had out of the water. I see the same results from monohydrate as I do with CreaCore however, no bloating. This is key to me. I personally don't look to be bulky, and I like to see what I am really getting. This is the product for me. It's rumored to be discontinued, however I'll buy it until there is no more. Fenugreek is all around great, it helps your absorption as well for some may help test levels. So over all this creatine is like a super creatine in my mind. Over all a lean mix, great absorption, great results. I have taken this product on and off for a few years now and I love it. The blue rasp is actually good. (Others not so much but they are 100% tolerable)

Used 3 bottles of this product, 4th is on its way. Love the combination of fenugreek and creatine HCL. Gives me a good muscle strength for a long time. Only bad thing is the sweetness of the product. It feels very unhealthy.

This Creatine seems to work well with my digestive system. Mo bloating, gas or discomfort like all the others I tried. I have one scoop pre-workout and one post.

Hi All, This is my first creatine product, it was recommended by my brother who was a gym trainer, I've used MUSCLETECH CREACORE for couple of months and it really works. All The Best To All The Bodybuilders, Stay Fit.

To keep it kinda short, this product one you drink it leaves a weird feeling on your teeth but after a few minutes goes away. Also this product will make you sweat after I took it and did warm up i was sweating more then usual for a warm up. It's okay not the best. Flavor good but overall didn't really help worth strength.

YES. THE TASTE IS TERRIBLE. BUT It does work it is that similar to the tears of orphan children and the black plague mixed into a container with a squirt of lemon. absolute terrible taste but the product does work. Strength has increased*** Lean mass has also increased *** Very low if any water retention which is key *** I've taken other creatines, mono and whatnot and found I did in fact hold more water. On this product I have maintained the same muscle development minus the fluff of other creatine products. Highly recommended!

I love this creatine. I see a few reviews on here saying it tastes bad or leaves a funny feeling on their teeth. The flavor is AMAZING. The blue raspberry tastes like a sour lollipop, and the green apples tastes like a jolly rancher. They DO leave a funny feeling on your teeth for about 2 minutes, but this is nothing that I haven't experienced from other HCL creatine. This product has more creatine per scoop than any other product I have seen, and more servings per container. Very impressed.

Thought I would try this and bought a couple tubs on sale! Told they were discounting the lemon lime because muscletech will not be selling lemon lime anymore, that is good because this stuff is horrible tasting and actually had me bloated and eventually vomiting This is the first time I have had a bad reactin of anykind to creatine, for that matter any supplement

The taste is too tangy for me BUT it is tolerable. Even adding extra water did not change the bitterness. Also, this product makes me pee quite a bit during and after my workout session, something I have not experienced with my previous creatine (mono/German). As far as product effectiveness, HELL YES!!!! I felt much more strength than I have felt in over a month during my workout. For this alone, I give this product a 10/10.
