Product Summary

The positive impact creatine has on muscle growth, recovery, and overall performance has been well-researched. If you have wanted to add this to your diet but do not want the powder, you are in luck. Optimum Nutrition’s Micronized Creatine Capsules offer all the benefits of creatine in capsule form.

In every two capsules, there is 2.5 grams of creatine monohydrate in its purest form. Absorption is a bit slower with capsules but the end result is the same—improved muscle recovery, growth, and performance. Optimum Nutrition recommends four pills daily providing 5 grams of creatine monohydrate.

These capsules do not seem to cause the same digestive issues experienced with powders. It also avoids concern over taste, which is an important factor for many consumers. The capsule form is considered to be more convenient.
