What’s up folks, today we are going to be reviewing Creature creatine which is made by Beast Sports Nutrition. This is one of the more popular creatines out there and it has some good reviews on bodybuilding.com. We decided to take a look at this bad boy and break it down. Let’s get started.
This creatine supplement has 5 different forms of creatine in its creatine blend. Let’s take a look at each one.
Creatine Monohydrate – This is the most common form of creatine and it is our favorite kind. It is tried and true and no other form of creatine has been able to top it as of yet.
Creatine MagnaPower – This one made of Creatine and Magnesium-bound together to form Magnesium Creatine Chelate.
Creatine AKG – This one is a creatine that is bound to Alpha-Ketoglutaric Acid. This form of creatine delivers glutamine as well and is more easily digested.
Creatine Anhydrous – This form of creatine has had a water molecule removed so it delivers more creatine. It has not been shown to be more effective than creatine monohydrate though.
Crea-Trona – This is the creatine from they boast about, it is a form of creatine made in Germany that is a molecularly-bonded compound. They make it sounds great but we haven’t seen any data on how well it performs.
Astragin – This is a key ingredient to help with absorption of the creatine into the muscle cells.
Cinullin – This is another absorption ingredient.
Biotin – Aids in digestion and gives you healthy hair and nails.
The pricing on this on is around $25 for 60 servings. That is slightly above average but nothing too outrageous. They also offer tubs with 30 and 10 serving that, of course are not as good of value.
Mix one scoop (5 grams) with 6-8oz of water and consume 30 minutes before workout. Typical for creatine.

Creature Creatine Overall Evaluation
Overall this one is a pretty nice product but it does have its downfalls. The creatine is in a proprietary blend for one thing. If you don’t know a proprietary blend is where they mix some of the ingredients together into a blend. The problem is they tell you how big the blend is but they don’t tell you how much of each ingredient is in the blend. So, while we know they use 5 different forms of creatine in the product we don’t really know how much of each form are on there since it is in the blend. All we know is that there are 4 grams of creatine per serving. Below is the label from the product so you can see what we mean. If you are going to put the ingredients in there tell how much there is of each, otherwise it seems shady.
We are not too big into the flavoring when it comes to supplements as we feel that great flavor is more for Kool-Aid while supplements are more for performance and taste is secondary. That said we generally won’t mention flavor too much on our reviews unless it is very good or very bad. We mention this because this is one of our first reviews we have done.
All that being said the taste on this one has some pretty good reviews, especially the pink lemonade and citrus flavors.
The ingredients are a higher quality than many of the bargain basement products out there that just shove a bunch of the cheapest ingredients together and price it low in order to make a sale.
Overall we feel like this one is a pretty decent product with some higher grade of creatine in it but it does have its faults.
