Creatine monohydrate is among one of the most researched supplements in the sports nutrition category over the last 20 years. Creatine is one of the most widely recognised, effective ergogenic nutritional supplement currently available to athletes in terms of increasing high-intensity exercise capacity and lean body mass during training. There is no compelling scientific evidence that the short- or long-term use of creatine monohydrate has any detrimental effects on otherwise healthy individuals.
Sweeteners are used in foods to provide zero (or reduced) calorie options to sweeten foods compared to sweetening with sugar or fructose. Optimum Nutrition products use only sweeteners and sweetener quantities deemed safe under US and Australian Food Laws. If you have a personal preference for avoiding artificial sweeteners, we would instead recommend our Naturally Flavoured Gold Standard Whey, which is sweetened with Stevia.
