Rankings: Creatine

Creatine monohydrate is one of the most researched supplement on the planet. It’s shown to increase power output by increasing ATP production. Creatine monohydrate does come in various purities however and most brands don’t state the purity so it’s often good to opt for a quality stamp of Creapure or CreATP.

Bulk – Creatine HCL

Creatine Hydrochloride (HCL) is Creatine bonded with hydrochloric salt for rapid absorption. It doesn’t need to be taken every day and can be taken in lower dosages (2 to 3 grams). It is often the go to choice for individuals that suffer digestion issues with creatine monohydrate but there is far less research on this type of creatine.

Bulk’s is the cheapest Creatine HCL we can find on the market.

Bulk – Creapure

Creapure is the purest form of creatine monohydrate on the market at 99.95% purity. It’s a quality stamp ensuring you are getting the highest form of creatine available.

Bulk’s version is the cheapest per 5g serving that we at Whey It Up can find at just 23p when buying the largest possible quantity. For that you’re getting unflavoured Creapure but nothing else.

Protein Works – Creatine Monohydrate

The cheapest creatine monohydrate in our list. You can pick this up for under 20p per serving if using our discount code WHEYITUP10D which also works on sale items or in addition to other codes.

Although this is not listed as “Creapure”, Protein Works do make the claim of 99.9% purity which makes this incredible value.

The only ingredient here is unflavoured creatine monohydrate unless you opt for a flavoured version with Protein Works offering “Berry Blitz” and “Orange Burst”.

Naughty Boy – Crea-Greens

Struggle to eat your greens? Or even to get enough vitamins and minerals in your diet? Crea-Greens could be the answer!

Further to the greens, the added vitamins and the hydration ingredients is the 5g creatine monohydrate per serving (although it’s not Creapure or CreATP).

87p per serving makes it competitively priced in the greens market. Using the link above, you can get a multibuy discount on this to bring the cost down.

Illegal Nutrition – Premium Creatine

Illegal Nutrition present CreATP, a creatine monohydrate at 99.5% purity which only Creapure is guaranteed to beat (by a negligible 0.45%).

Further to this, the product contains pink Himalayan salt for increased absorption and to draw water into muscles which is ideal when using creatine. It also contains Astragin for absorption and to increase ATP production further.

If downing this with a little water, you can taste the salt slightly so mixing with 500ml+ is recommended as taste is minimal, or mix with some juice/squash/EAAs or anything else flavoured to negate it.

The truly impressive thing here however is the price of 33p per serving.

HR Labs – Basic

“Basic” is a daily saturation supplement that not only contains creatine monohydrate (although not Creapure or CreATP) but also contains beta-alanine, betaine, Peak O2 and hydration (including Cocomineral, Taurine and Pink Himalayan Salt) & absorption ingredients (including Astragin

If you want an all-in-one daily supplement to increase power, performance, muscular endurance and recovery then look no further.

At £1.10 per serving, the price is steep but if you want the benefits these many ingredients give, you have to take them daily. You can use the link above to get a multi-buy discount to bring the cost down.
