IntroductionI had gotten this in a Stack from bodybuilding.com and this was the first and only product from EVL I have tried. I was happy with the results, but in my opinion its run of the mill Creatine. I lift 5-6 days a week, do not do much Cardio (due to injuries over the years from 18 years of Military Service), so Supplements are becoming important.
Ingredient ProfileI will start by saying no Prop blends, which I am a huge fan of just laying it all out there, so Thank You EVL! So the big ingredients to talk about here is the blend of Creatine: Creatine Monohydtate (3000mg) and Creatine Anhydrous (1000mg). This may be my lack of knowledge of the in's and out's of the Creatine World, but I do not like this about the label: Magnesium (as Creatine MagnaPower, magnesium creatine chelate) at 80mg and Magnesium Creatine Chelate (Creatine MagnaPower) at 1000mg. This appears to be the same to me, so my point being, you should not have to be a Creatine EXPERT to understand ingredients. That's my only knock of this product really, small things I know.
Taste/Mixability/DosingHad the Unflavored, and it mixed so easily with my Protein Post Workout. No issues here, one scoop and done. The only way it could be easier would be if a robot fed you post workout!
EffectivenessSo I did this as part of a stack, so I can't give the Creatine all the credit but it gets a majority of the lions share here. I am 6'2", started at 228 and am now rocking about 242, and lost fat along the way. I have the beauty of bigger arms and legs at this point. I believe a lot of that has to do with this Creatine. It was no water weight, that showed up the first couple weeks and then broke off, these results are 4 weeks in, and this tub was done before I saw it, which tells me that steady and consistent use is what got me here. This is why I call this a basic Creatine, because this will not knock your socks off, or be super noticeable, its just there, and then when your body is ready, BAM here you go, RESULTS. That's what matters in the end.
I had 60 servings of this, and about two weeks in, I decided to double up and take one scoop pre workout and one post. This week I did that I could almost feel the weight coming in, but almost in a bloated fashion, so after a week I stopped and went back to one scoop post. This was a rookie error on my part since I take a PWO that has creatine, so why over do it. End of the day this product will do everything you want it to do, and what you expect with one serving, so that's it bro's and gals!
