Creatine Serum vs Creatine Powder
There is still a debate about creatine. Which is better to use, the creatine powder or the creatine serum?
First of all, what is creatine? Most substances that athletes use are vitamins, minerals, herbs or hormones and of course let’s not forget steroids. But creatine is none of these; it is a naturally occurring amino acid. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. The main purpose of creatine is to provide energy to our muscles. We acquire most of the creatine in our bodies from consuming fish and meat as well as dairy products, eggs, nuts and some seeds.
There has been a debate about creatine serum ever since it was developed. Is it better than the creatine powder? According to documented information creatine serum is slightly favored, but they both have the exact same end results. Some people even use a creatine stack, which is a combination of both liquid and powder.
When you take the liquid creatine supplement, there is no need for the loading phase. A loading phase, which is also known as the initial stage, is the period when you take a large dose of the creatine powder once at the beginning of your workout. A loading phase is only needed with the powder form, because with the liquid form, there is a quick absorption rate directly into the blood stream. The serum also eliminates the phase known as the maintenance phase because serum has an extremely fast rate of absorption. With this phase being unnecessary with the serum, you are free to supplement with it whenever you work out or feel you need it the most. Another notable difference between the serum and the powder is the fact that you don’t need to increase your fluid intake, but you do still need to take your fluids, just not as much as with the powder form.
