Creatine is one of the most tried-and-tested supplements which provide superior levels of power, endurance and muscular gains. Much like other products, not all brands are created equally. Our experts have taken a look a this product to provide you with an unbiased review. What have we discovered?

Olimp Creatine Xplode – Features and Specifications

Creatine Xplode provides users with a proprietary blend of six different types of creatine. These include creatine malate and creatine citrate. A total of 3,669 grams is offered with each serving (five grams). 500 milligrams of taurine (an amino acid) are also provided. There are no calories, carbohydrates or fats. Our testers followed the instructions and took five grams twice a day (once in the morning and once in the evening).

Positives

The blend of six different creatine variants was felt to increase the overall rate of absorption. We found the inclusion of creatine alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG) to be extremely effective in delivering a noticeable muscular pump alongside sustained amounts of energy. We tried the orange flavour although there were others available. It was actually quite tasty; slightly resembling the traditional drink known as Tang.

Negative Attributes

The primary issue that our experts observed was involved with the amount of creatine available per serving. Under normal conditions, users require approximately ten grams twice a day during training days. If taken as recommended, less than 7.5 grams would be available.

Out of this, there is some conjecture in terms of the benefits of certain forms of creatine such as creatine ethyl ether hydrochloride and creatine pyruvate (branded under the name CreaPure). Finally, the majority of our users found that they experienced cramping and bloating. Although this is common with creatine products, these symptoms counteracted the claims that Creatine Xplode was easy to digest.

What Do We Think?

Our experts have taken a “middle-of-the-road” approach in regards to this product. While it does supply active and useful forms of creatine, the total grams may not be sufficient for those within high-intensity training programmes. While this is one of the better products on the market, those who are seeking more pronounced gains may prefer to use a brand that contains more creatine per serving.
