How to use creatine monohydrate

If you want to use creatine monohydrate, follow these general steps.

Dosage of creatine monohydrate

Some brands work as follows: start with a loading phase of 5-7 days, taking 20-25 grams of creatine monohydrate daily, divided into several servings. After the loading phase you can go back to the maintenance dose of 3-5 grams per day.

However, this is a general guideline and you can also start directly with the maintenance dose without a loading phase. We therefore recommend that you do not do a loading phase, it will not provide any benefits and your pot will be empty more quickly.
