You have liquid creatine, creatine candy, creatine gum, creatine capsules, and even stomach-bloating effervescent creatine (Give this a try, I guarantee you'll only do it once!). With all these "tricks" thrown at trying to market and sell a "different" creatine – very little has actually enhanced or improved upon the effects of regular creatine monohydrate.
The problem is, companies are trying too hard to make their creatine different instead of creating a creatine that is actually better.
As you may or may not know, creatine monohydrate will not fully dissolve once placed in liquid. That's why you always get that gritty sand at the bottom of the glass. Think about it this way, if it falls like sand to the bottom of your glass what does it do once inside your stomach? Maybe this is the reason why so many complain of stomach discomfort when taking regular creatine monohydrate.
With AST's constant commitment to enhance the effectiveness of sports supplementation we have developed a new creatine supplement that includes state-of-the-art particle micronizing technology (PMT™).
This technology sets a new standard for creatine monohydrate supplementation by actually creating creatine 'micro-particles' that are 20 times smaller than regular creatine powder.
AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine is very flexible. It mixes instantly in liquid and stays suspended longer. It has no gritty mouth feel and causes no discomfort once in the stomach. Micronized Creatine offers the most effective creatine monohydrate for fast results.
Take 5 grams four times daily for 5 days.
Take 5 grams twice daily.
Drink Plenty of Liquids!
Creatine works by improving muscle cell hydration. It is very important to consume adequate fluids while taking creatine to see the best results possible. A good guide to follow is to drink an EXTRA 16 to 20 ounces of liquid for every 5 grams of creatine you take.
During your Loading Phase you should be drinking an EXTRA 64 to 80 ounces of what you normally drink. During the maintenance phase you should drink an EXTRA 32 to 40 ounces.
This is very important and guarantees you get the most out of creatine supplementation.
What exactly is AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine?
AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine is a unique new creatine monohydrate that is manufactured using state-of-the-art particle micronizing technology - PMT™. With this new technology we are able to actually make each tiny creatine particle 20 times smaller than typical creatine powder. Smaller particle size means more total surface area for quicker and more efficient creatine absorption.*
AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine mixes easier and stays in solution. Regular creatine powder drops to the bottom of the glass even before you are finished stirring.
Once you try AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine and see how well it works you'll never want to use regular creatine powder again.
How is AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine better than regular creatine?
AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine is designed so that it is utilized better and more efficiently. The micro-particle size allows for quicker absorption and better utilization.*
A simple analogy would be like chewing food. If you only chew your food a few times it will be much harder for your digestive system to handle and fully utilize the nutrients. However, if you chew your food thoroughly before swallowing then your digestive system has no problem digesting and utilizing all the nutrients the food has to offer.
The same applies with AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine. It's 20 times smaller than regular creatine and therefore much easier and faster absorbed and utilized.*
Our new micronized technology also yields a more pure raw material due to the extra purification steps involved in the process.
Creatine gives me a stomach ache; will AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine upset my stomach too?
That's the problem some people experience with regular creatine. Because of the large particle size of regular creatine some people can't digest it very well. It tends to sit in the gut longer than it should. This causes mild stomach discomfort and also yields poor results due to sub-optimal absorption.
AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine solves this problem. It gets into the bloodstream quickly and efficiently with no stomach upset. This means better results - faster and with no discomfort.*
Are there any side effects with AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine?
Taken as directed, AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine exhibits no negative side effects. You will, however, see a marked increase in strength and lean muscle gains when combined with an intense weight training program.*
Will AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine make me stronger?
Yes! When combined with resistance training, AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine will help you increase strength and lean muscle mass.*
AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine is non-caloric and will not increase fat accumulation.
How much muscle will I gain with AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine?
There is no accurate answer to this. There are too many other factors involved that effect muscle growth. Creatine increases cell volume by increasing the fluid holding capacity of the muscle cell. This increases muscle weight, size and strength as well as long term muscle accrual. You may see an increase in strength and size in a relatively short period of time.*
I'm a bicycle racer; will AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine help me with speed and endurance?
Contrary to what most think, AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine may help increase speed and endurance. A recent study showed creatine supplementation delayed fatigue in repeated bouts of sprint running.1,2
Though first thought to be only beneficial to strength athletes, studies are beginning to uncover very significant improvements in endurance athletes as well.*
Do I need to cycle AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine?
Some people like to cycle creatine. However, there is no research that concludes whether or not it's beneficial to cycle creatine. If you feel the need to cycle creatine I recommend taking it for 12 weeks and then cycle off for 4 weeks.
When you resume taking creatine you will have to follow the loading procedure again.
Your Micronized Creatine is awesome! How do you get it so white? It makes the other brands look crude by comparison.
The new AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine is really a major advancement in creatine development. This advancement is not just because of the increased efficiency the micronization brings but there is also an increase in purity as well. The extra processing involves several more purifying steps that yield the purest creatine you can put in your body. And we guarantee it. This is why AST Sports Science Micronized Creatine is a brilliant white in appearance.
Purity is very important. Some may think there is not much difference in 99.9% purity and 98% but there is a big difference. What is that other 1.9%? Impurities! Impurities that could be doing some hidden damage to your system compromising the results you get and most importantly your health.
Your body is an elaborate machine. It can handle a certain amount of toxins but over time these toxins can be very harmful and impede intricate processes hampering your body's potential to perform optimally.

AST's creatine is very very fine and mixes up better than the other monohydrate's I've used. There's less grit left down at the bottom of the glass. I have not had any side effetcs from using this creatine and have been using for about a year now. Creatine really helps with gains, when I cycle on and off it I notice the strength gains within a week of starting to take it again
