MTS Nutrition Creatine Benefits & Effectiveness

Creatine has a strong link with increased muscle size, power output, and endurance, as well as some possible neurological benefits. Creatine monohydrate is the most widely used and well researched form of creatine, and while some companies try to popularize other forms like pH-buffered creatine or creatine hydrochloride, there’s no definitive proof that anything is more effective than regular creatine monohydrate.

Some might be glad to learn that MTS uses Creapure® brand creatine. Creapure has a reputation as one of the most high quality creatines on Earth: it’s made in a dedicated facility in Germany, it’s tested for impurities and banned substances at the German Olympic Training Center in Berlin, and they have a litany of other quality controls to help ensure purity.

MTS also gets their product third party tested for impurities, so that may provide some comfort as far as banned substances go, particularly for competitive athletes.

MTS Nutrition Creatine Price

You can pick up a 400-gram tub of 80 servings for $15. That’s about 19 cents per serving or 3.8 cents per gram. That’s a good price for creatine and a great price for Creapure — this might be the cheapest I’ve seen it.

The Takeaway

This isn’t a perfect supplement — it doesn’t have any extra ingredients, it doesn’t come with a scoop, and it’s not the cheapest creatine on the market. But if you’re looking for Creapure, this might be the cheapest place to find it.

Nick is a content producer and journalist with over seven years’ experience reporting on four continents. His first articles about health were on a cholera outbreak in rural Kenya while he was reporting for a French humanitarian organization. His next writing job was covering the nightlife scene in Shanghai. He’s written on a lot of different kinds of things, but his passion for health ultimately led him to cover it full time.Shanghai was where he managed to publish his first health related article (it was on managing diarrhea), he then went on to produce a radio documentary about bodybuilding in Australia before he finished his Master’s degrees in Journalism and International Relations and headed to New York City. Here, he’s been writing on health full time for more than five years for outlets like Men's Health, VICE, and Popular Science.Nick’s interest in health kind of comes from an existential angle: how are we meant to live? How do we reach our potential? Does the body influence the mind? (Believe it or not, his politics Master’s focused on religion.)Questions like these took him through a lot of different areas of health and fitness like gymnastics, vegetarianism, kettlebell training, fasting, CrossFit, Paleo, and so on, until he realized (or decided) that strength training fit best with the ideas of continuous, measurable self improvement.At BarBend his writing focuses a little more on nutrition and long-form content with a heaping dose of strength training. His underlying belief is in the middle path: you don’t have to count every calorie and complete every workout in order to benefit from a healthy lifestyle and a stronger body. Plus, big traps are cool.
