Creapure is the highest quality creatine monohydrate supplement you can use. Here is where to get it.
Creapure – Creatine Made In Germany
For many athletes, the only creatine supplements they’ll use are those made from Creapure – the trademark creatine of Germany’s Alzchem. Despite the price sometimes being double of other creatine products.
Why? Because there are only four plants in the world that produce creatine: three in China, and Alzchem in Germany – the only really identifiable manufacturer. It remains a mystery who exactly produces creatine in China and with what quality standards.
And those standards are somewhat questionable, as it is only Alzchem who guarantee 99.95% purity. No-name creatine at least in the past was found to be laced with a heavy metal, steroids and fertilizer.
How To Identify Creapure Creatine
To me those are some pretty good reasons to go for the more expensive product. But how can you be sure you are getting Creapure?
First of all, practically any creatine supplement made from Creapure will carry the logo (see the picture at the top). Because Creapure is more expensive to buy, end products will have a higher price as well, and to justify that, supplement companies put it on the bottle. The quality associated with Creapure is of course also a good sales argument.
Second, if the Creapure logo is on the bottle, you can be rather sure that it indeed is Creapure in there. Alzchem is quite interested in protecting their good name and would probably send a brigade of lawyers after any company daring to use their trademark on bottles containing no-name creatine.

There is a sea of creatine brands out there, making the few using Creapure hard to locate. I therefore scoured the internet and compiled a list, complete with info on where to buy online:

Do You Know More?
It took me a good two hours finding them and I’m pretty sure these are all available. But if you are aware of other companies selling 100% Creapure creatine, let me know. Especially if you are based in a non-English speaking country. In those I couldn’t properly evaluate online offers due to the language barrier.
