As you probably know, higher grades of gasoline help your car’s engine to run more smoothly and are cleaner than lower grades of gas.
Likewise, there are also varying grades of creatine that an athlete or bodybuilder can consume – with higher grades being more beneficial than lower grades.
That said, if you’re currently shopping around for a creatine-based product, then you’ll want to make sure that you find one which contains a higher grade of creatine.
In this review, we’re going to take a look at one creatine supplement in particular, named Qualitine. As its name suggests, Qualitine has been marketed as a quality creatine product.
But does this marketing ploy actually border along the truth or is it all a big lie?
To begin, we should note that Qualitine carries 5 grams of creatine monohydrate in each of its servings.
Now, while there is nothing special about creatine monohydrate itself other than the fact that its synthesized in small amounts by our bodies, the creatine monohydrate found in Qualitine has certainly been spiced up a bit.
More specifically, Qualitine carries creatine monohydrate that is 99.9% pure and micronized.
And in order to purchase this 99.9% pure and micronized creatine monohydrate product, you only have to spend $19.99 for a 60-serving tub.
What We Like About This Product
Continuing our last train of thought, if you couldn’t already tell, we certainly like the fact that Qualitine can be purchased at a bargain price.
As for the grade of its creatine, although creatine monohydrate is not the sharpest form of creatine that you’ll come across, it certainly helps Qualitine’s cause that the creatine monohydrate it carries has been micronized and is found in a pure form.
You see, we often hear complaints about creatine monohydrate because its unstable by nature and often breaks down too readily in the body before it can be thoroughly absorbed. In addition, side effects such as bloating, stomach cramps and diarrhea are often the cause of creatine monohydrate being unstable.
But this issue can be partially corrected by micronizing creatine monohydrate. Along those lines, the smaller an anabolic substance is, the more readily absorbent it’ll be and the more likely it will reach muscles and muscles cells before breaking down.
Also, because Qualitine contains 99.9% pure creatine monohydrate, we assume that its slightly more potent and effective than many of its creatine monohydrate-carrying competitors.
What We Dislike About This Product
On the other hand, creatine monohydrate is the only substance found in Qualitine. While this means that Qualitine can be easily “stacked” with other supplements, its simplicity has its downsides as well.
Basically, the more anabolic ingredients you throw into a blend, the better. And while many creatine-based products also contain proteins, carbs and an assortment of performance- and muscle-enhancing ingredients, this is not the case for Qualitine.
In closing, although Qualitine obviously isn’t the most well-rounded creatine supplement on the market today, it does seem to be a cost-effective option when you couple the price of this product with the quality and grade of creatine that it contains.
In other words, if you’re looking to save a little money, we’d certainly suggest that you give Qualitine a try.
