Staunch Creatine Five Review

Staunch CreatineThe creation of Staunch has brought us quite a few awesome supplements to review and enjoy. We’ve already reviewed Staunch Original, Staunch Koala Freak, and Staunch Zero-Stim (stim-free) pre workouts. Now, it’s time for Staunch Creatine – a 5X creatine blend that packs a gnarly punch.

What’s in Staunch Creatine

Staunch Creatine is a blend of 5 different creatine forms. They include: MagnaPower Magnesium Creatine Chelate, Creapure Creatine Monohydrate, Tri-Creatine Malate, Creatine Pyruvate, and Creatine Anhydrous. Here is what each of these 5 forms have going for them.

Creatine MagnaPower (Magnesium Creatine Chelate) 2,000 mg

Creatine MagnaPower is a patented form of creatine bonded to magnesium, and is held by Albion Laboratories. They claim, that MagnaPower is more effective, and more usable in the human body, by supplying both creatine and magnesium at the same time.

You can watch Albion’s video explanation of magnesium creatine chelate on their home page.

Creapure Creatine Monohydrate 2,000 mg

Creatine Monohydrate is the oldest, and most studied type of creatine supplement. Of creatine monohydrate, Creapure is considered to be the highest quality. Creapure creatine monohydrate is manufactured by AlzChem in Germany. What makes Creapure special, is that it is manufactured in a facility specifically designed to make only Creapure creatine monohydrate. With that, AlzChem boasts that they produce the highest quality creatine monohydrate on the market, period.

Tri-Creatine Malate 330 mg + Creatine Pyruvate 330 mg + Creatine Anhydrous 290 mg [950 mg]

In addition to MagnaPower and Creapure creatine, Staunch Creatine also contains the variants: tri-creatine malate, creatine pyruvate, and creatine anhydrous in small quantities. Each one of these forms carry the benefits of more rapid absorption than standard monohydrate.

The whole Staunch Creatine blend contains approximately 5 grams of creatine per serving, which is just right for daily use.

Note: If you are also taking a pre workout, we recommend taking your Staunch Creatine after your workout. We say this, because there is some research suggesting that taking creatine alongside your pre workout diminishes the ergogenic effect. Something to do with creatine and caffeine interfering with each other.

Staunch Creatine Review

Compared to generic brands, Staunch Creatine is a significant step up in product quality. We noticed this by the purity of the powder we received, as well as by its stable and predictable effects.

Staunch Creatine delivered awesome strength gains for us, while also limiting muscle cramping usually associated with aggressive training while taking creatine monohydrate. This is most likely due to the 2,000 mg of MagnaPower magnesium creatine chelate.

While all Creapure creatine products are technically the same, we have noticed better performance from this Creapure/MagnaPower hybrid supplement, which makes it a more tempting supplement to take compared to standard creapure products (unless you are trying to get the downright cheapest deal).

Will you make gains in the gym while taking Staunch Creatine?

You’d better. If not, then something is wrong with your training regimen or diet (in a big way).

Is Staunch Creatine safe for sensitive stomachs?

If regular creatine monohydrate gives you stomach pain, then switching to a higher quality creatine source like creapure may solve that problem for you. But, digging deeper – ensuring that your creatine fully dissolves into water before drinking it can also solve GI issues. If you are having a hard time getting your creatine to fully dissolve clear into water – try using more water as well as warmer temperature water.

Staunch Creatine Round-up

Staunch Creatine is a unique blend of 5 different creatine forms focusing primarily on Creapure and MagnaPower sources. We experienced great gains while taking it, and didn’t undergo any side effects that low quality creatine sources are notorious for (therefor Staunch Creatine is confirmed as a high quality product).

Going further, the team didn’t experience any muscle cramping while taking Staunch Creatine, something that does occur when taking large doses of only Creapure creatine monohydrate.

As a whole, we rank Staunch creatine as a prime pick for creatine supplementation. We have really become fond of the whole Staunch line, and prefer it already over many ‘mainstream’ brands. So, if you are looking for more than just a generic creatine supplement, this is definitely a good premium choice that will offer more.
