Product Overview

What is Creatine Ethyl Ester?

Creatine Ethyl Ester (CEE) is a more effective variant of the popular dietary supplement Creatine Monohydrate. As the Creatine Monohydrate has been attached to an ester salt it is generally easier for the body to absorb it when combined to alternative sources.

Creatine Ethyl Ester Benefits

CEE helps provide a quick boost of ATP to the working muscles which in turn facilitates improvements in lean mass, strength and power. Easy to use providing fantastic results, Creatine Ethyl Ester is recommended to anyone who wants to improve their physique and sporting performance with no side effects.

Creatine Ethyl Ester is an advanced supplement that takes the basic Creatine Monohydrate and boosts its constitution with the addition of ester salts. These ester salts make it more easily absorbed and ease uptake by your cells. Some of the benefits of CEE over traditional forms of Creatine are related to the fact that smaller doses are required to get the same effect, whilst the bloating and preloading phase are eliminated.

If you don't like the taste of Creatine Ethyl Ester powder, why not try our CEE Tablets?

Who is Creatine Ethyl Ester suitable for?

CEE is perfect for athletes looking to improve strength, power and lean mass. It is a great option for those who suffer bloating or discomfort from other forms of creatine.

When should I take Creatine Ethyl Ester?

We suggest you take Creatine Ethyl Ester around 1 hour before a workout. On non-workout days take at the same time as a workout day. After 4-6 weeks of continued use take 1-2 week off and start period again.

Key Benefits

  • Easily absorbed due to Ethyl Ester
  • Helps you store more ATP
  • Can help improve strength and size

Suggested Use

Add one heaped MP small scoop (3g) to water, shake and consume. Use 1 hour before a workout. On non-workout days take at the same time as a workout day. After 4-6 weeks of continued use take 1-2 week off and start period again.

1 x level MP Plastic Scoop (small) weighs 2.5g. (not included).

Yea as others say it doesn't taste nice... But it works. Unlike the normal monohydrate there is no loading period. I used to mix 1g of this stuff with just 2g of m.p s normal cheap monohydrate pre and post and it worked, a very cheap small and yet effective dose.

Good Stuff!

Best valued Creatine I have brought to date and it works out cheaper than Monohydrate in the long run, as you use less per serving per day and thus it will last you over twice as long. Also noticed strength gain after only 1 week of use! The only downside is it's "unflavoured" taste (it's rank, but just neck it), either way, I will still only buy the unflavoured version, as you get more Creatine per serving, instead of flavourings added.

Think pretty much everyone has said how bad this tastes and it certainly ranks amongst the most vile things I have ever eaten or drunk. That said it is effective and works rapidly - anyone who has taken creatine monohydrate will notice how quickly this kicks in in comparison. Ultimately you're gonna spend 5mins a week enduring the taste and hours working out so choke it down and enjoy the benefits.

Tastes foul but you quickly get used to it and eases off a little when mixed with either some whey or a pint of fruit cordial. 5 weeks into using it and I can tolerate the taste now. May take a minute or so to fully dissolve when mixed and the product will settle in it's packaging so you'll need to break up the lumps that are formed. Performance wise I feel stronger when working out, always feel like I can fit one more set in or push out that final rep when I'm getting fatigued. I've never used creatine mono so can't compare the effectiveness to that but CEE works well for me and is one of my essential supplements along with BCAA and arginine.

AWESOME STUFF!

Creatine Ethyl Ester HCL is the best creatine out there, the way I got around the bad taste was to mix it with blackcurrant cordial. I have the creatine in around 500ml water and add 100ml cordial it takes a few goes before you start getting used to it, and just think of it as a sour cordial drink. But in all seriousness, man up and down it! It's worth it in the end.

CEE - Review.

First things first, lets talk about the taste. CEE contains amino acids and as such, has a very strong acidic taste. It is not pleasant to drink with water. However I have found it bearable to drink with Grapefruit Juice. Once you get over the taste you can enjoy the benefit of fast absorption and an increase in energy and strength. If you are in doubt about the taste and don't mind waiting a week or two to fully absorb the creatine, go for a standard Monohydrate which is flavorless.

How to take CEE

I have found this Protein Dessert works great, however it tastes rancid. I have tried adding it to various squashes, juices and shakes and found the best method is to empty the spoon of CEE on the back of my tongue and immediately take a gulp of lemon squash to wash it straight down and then finish off with the of the pint of squash. The taste is then isolated to the back of the tongue instead of the whole mouth.

Great Pump

I've used Creatine Ethyl Ester HCL now for the 2nd time and it's great although the taste isn't good and it can play a little on your body. There are 4 golden rules to go by and you'll have no trouble what so ever. Eat before you use it (stops the creatine coming straight out the other end), mix it with juice or lemonade (take 20 mins before work out to allow gas out if using lemonade or coke). Drink it through a straw (the last batch gave me mouth ulcers so went off it, I used a straw this time and no problems), train hard and drink plenty of water. Using them rules, I find it brilliant, with great gains and good pump and it's also good to mix with or have along side it a small can of Red Bull or the cheap version I get from Asda.

Yes, the taste of Creatine Ethyl Ester HCL is bad. Mix it with pure orange juice, about 10ml of liquid is enough. Have another cup of drink (squash) ready beside you. Knock the creatine back like a shot, then grab the cup of squash rinse it round your mouth then swallow. It is not that bad. It gives great recovery, lots of energy, and no side effects. It does make you feel stronger.

The first time I had this Creatine Ethyl Ester HCL on its own, it's vile and hard to drink. I wasn't expecting anything else really. The second time I mixed it with Jack 3D, which is sickly sweet and 200ml of water so both seemed to even each other out. There is still a touch of after taste there but you just have to man up I guess. I've been using it for a few weeks now and I seem to be making considerable gains for the price.

Never have I ever tasted something as vile as this Creatine Ethyl Ester HCL! The mix-ability is great as it dissolves straight away, however, I was unprepared for the taste that comes with it, and as a result, I covered my sink in protein shake, after spitting it out. I ordered it with the standard whey, I tried the strawberry cream flavour and I have never tasted a shake as good as that! Just like drinking yazoo. I had to add two heaped scoops instead of one with the creatine, just to making it bearable to drink. That said I'm going to try it with some strong cordial next time it's due.

Worse taste imaginable

I have used the Creatine Ethyl Ester pills before and they certainly work better than creatine monohydrate, in my opinion, so I thought I'd buy the powder. It is the worst tasting thing I have ever tried to drink. I am not exaggerating when I say that drinking vodka mixed with bleach would probably taste better. If you can handle downing half a cup of vodka-bleach before and after your workout, then you will be able to use this supplement fine. But if not, I would strongly advice you buy the tablet form. I have since thrown this product away as it is unusable in my opinion. Truly disgusting taste!

Works for me

Overall, Creatine Ethyl Ester HCL is good. I am taking it with MyProtein Whey (Unflavoured). I gave 4 stars for effectiveness. It does work. I feel good energy and pump whilst working out in the gym. Mix-ability is fine, you are not going to use more than 6-10 grams a day so there is no problem. Just add some juice and shake it and it's done. However there are big lumps in the packets which you may have to break with a fork or spoon at the end when you have used the powder. It tastes awful though. Don't think of taking it just in water, you have to add a strong flavour to it or else you won't be able to get it down.

Awsome product

Ok, so to everyone below who commented on the taste.... Yes it is the most disgusting thing you will have to swallow, but that is the way that Ethyl Ester Creatine taste, no way around it I am afraid. It does get easier with time. The best way I found is to carefully tip over a spoonfull of creatine as far back on your tongue as possible ( past the taste buds), keep the tongue very still and then quickly swallow it down with a gulp of sweet squash. Tick! Done!. As for the affect of the product... Awsome! I cannot go without it. Recovery is fast, the pump during and after training is amazing and if you stay on it, you tend to keep some of that training pump the rest of the day. I have been on it for a year now and the results are brilliant. Water retention is 0. Energy levels increase a lot. So comon guys, man up and get it down! You will not be disappointed.

Creatine Ethyl Ester HCL is an alright product. I have not noticed any strength gains, but at least it doesn't bloat the user like Monohydrate. It tastes like poison, literally like something that should be avoided. It's OK but not astonishing. I will use my 2kgs of it though and hopefully will see some gains in strength. Even though it tastes like turpentine mixed with formaldehyde and bitrex, I think it would make a good pre-deadlift tonic, much like ammonia salts that people sniff. Carry some around mixed with water when at the gym and sip it before you lift, even if it does not make you stronger, it sure as heck will wake you up due to the foulness of it!

Taste is terrible. But who cares? The effectiveness is amazing. In weight training I push more and harder. I add more reps and it helps give me the extra boost on the few final reps that's vitally needed. I still feel after a session I want to go back and do it again. It helps me recover quicker to. In Thai boxing training I punch, knee and kick stronger and I push harder throughout. Again it gives me that extra boost needed, I don't feel as drained as much and I recover quicker for the next day. My size has certainly gained and I look a lot leaner too. My advice would be to mix your chosen measurement in a small quantity of water an hour before your training session, stir it until it dissolves and then neck it back like a shot of sambuca or something... Boom! Short sweet and simple. Remember to keep really hydrated everyday as creatine can harm the liver if you don't. The monohydrate creatine is crap at mixing, it's gritty and doesn't digest properly, nor gets into your system as easily. Waste of my time. It did nothing for me in the past. Creatine Ethyl Ester is the bomb. Ignore the taste and reap in the benefits. Nothing that's good for you tastes good anyway. That's what I tell myself. Hope this helps.

Good Product, Taste Is Terrifying

Cannot fault the effectiveness of the product, only small qualm is the taste. Back in 2003, Iraq was invaded, the purpose? To find and destroy Saddam Hussein's chemical weapon repository. They found nothing. The reason for this was in fact because all chemical and biological concoctions were formed into a power and sold to humans labelled CEE HCL. It tastes awful. Best advice - either stick to creatine mono, or buy CEE in pill form. Kudos to you if you can handle the taste of this stuff.

As a user of creatine monohydrate I thought I would change and try this product just to mix things up. As monohydrate has zero taste the initial taste of this product was shocking, the taste is so strong and over powering, and to be honest I have to drink or eat something soon after consuming to take the taste away. As for the performance though it is great, I have noticed a real increase in performance since taking this substance, and so regardless of taste I would recommend this product, no pain no gain right.

Firstly the bad: when Creatine Ethyl Ester HCL is mixed with water, it's like trying to drink down a bottle of bleach with potassium powder and salt added; less than pleasant! It won't make you gag, it will just make you wonder if it's suitable for human consumption and force you to pull contorted faces, like licking a lemon while rubbing salt in your eye. However, if mixed with blackcurrant squash it seems to become far more tolerable. Don't try adding it to a protein shake though, it just makes it worse! Now for the good: Having used this for a couple of weeks now, taking one scoop a day, I have noticed some decent increases in muscular endurance. Not so much strength itself, but I'm able to keep the same weight going for more reps/ sets than previous. It's definitely a noticeable increase, and certainly worth the the money I paid for it. To conclude; if you don't mind drinking bleach, and you've hit a plateau, then this is a worth while purchase. If you struggle to chug a regular shake, then don't bother with this!

"Have bought and tried monohydrate and creapure before, this version of creatine is much the same in terms of effectiveness. However you only need 3g as opposed to 5-10g of others, meaning a product that lasts longer but is as good as the others available. The taste makes shakes taste slightly bitter, nothing major or unpleasant but definitely noticeable. But on the whole a very good value and effective product."

This has to be the worst tasting compound ever created by humans. It mixes well but even in pure orange or cranberry juice it tastes foul. I'm afraid I can't really rate it highly on effectiveness or overall as I couldn't drink it and threw it in the bin.

It does (As has been stated a million times) taste terrible but I mix it with some sugar free blueberry juice and it goes down just fine! Also worth saying that it's awkward to measure 3g unless you have got a very sensitive weighing scales. I managed to get a 5g creatine spoon from ebay and use that!

"Well i can say the taste is not the greatest but whoever can't get this down the throat better find another sport. It does work on par with classic monohydrate except that does not affect water retention that much which i bought it in the first place. It does what it is supposed to do and help your ATP to squeeze those few reps more and aid in gaining mass. Currently in caloric deficit and i can keep the training very well when losing fat in the progress. So far so good. 1,5 month so far with good diet and im already out of 6Kg 4 being water probably. I was even able to gain some mass and strength but this will eventually come to an end since im on caloric deficit. Apart the taste which im not concerned with it's a great and reccomended supplement."

True, it smells and tastes like a tin of lead paint but can be easily downed in a strong cordial mixture and the after taste is quick to go. No bloating or tummy problems but didnt get the real kick that I had from monohydrate. Had tried taking it straight after my workout ( MP advises taking it 1 hour before) as that seems to be the latest idea with CEE according to my coach and this seemed to give me that edge that lasted till training the following evening. I'll start on it again tomorrow and continue with this and update anyone who is interested!"

Having read about the benefits of CEE as an alternative I decided to look at it more seriously. Yes, the taste is not nice on its own, but it does say in the information that there is a potent taste/smell and to get the caps instead if you don't want to face it. I found it mixed very easily and I masked it pre-workout in a no-added sugar cordial drink, and seamlessly into my shake afterwards. I recommend this highly to anyone who does not want the water retention of creatine monohydrate that some people experience."

Now a lot of people go on about how awful it tastes, and that's a fact.

Upon taking it yes it is synthetic no it is by far not the worst tasting product ive taken, but if u have a weak stomach and mind maybe you shouldnt be getting into weight training?? I found the product to be best mixing with dextrose not only for better absorbtion rates but also to get rid of some of the synthetic taste. Worked like a charm recovery improved 10 fold strength, power are greatly improved and also my motivation when at the gym, feels like i can go on forever!! definately worth taking once you get over the taste!!"

Can be a bit salty tasting so don't over do it if you are watching sodium intake."
