How to Use Cell-Tech
Creatine has been one of the most extensively studied and safest supplements on the market. Cell-Tech is a creatine-derived product produced by Muscle-Tech. Muscle-Tech claims that it is one of the best selling creatine products of all time; however, there are no statistics to back up their statement. Cell-Tech is a supplement that is designed to be taken after a workout, meaning roughly within 30 minutes of the conclusion of the exercise session.
Grab a cup or shaker cup capable of holding at least 15 ounces of liquid.
Fill the cup up with 12 ounces of water.
Place one serving of Cell-Tech into the cup. One serving consists of two scoops of the product.
Grab the spoon and stir the Cell-Tech into the water. This will take approximately 15 to 30 seconds to complete. Make sure the product is completely dissolved before drinking.
Drink the mixture.
Drink an additional 8 ounces of water after consuming this supplement. This is recommended by Muscle-Tech.
To decrease the cost, buy a pure creatine product and use this on non-lifting days. Pure creatine can be purchased from a variety of online vendors for about $10 to $20 for anywhere between 100 to 200 servings.
Muscle-Tech recommends taking Cell-Tech in the morning of non-lifting days. However, each serving of the product contains 75 grams of dextrose, which according to Ohio State Nutrition professor Gordon Wardlaw, is a simple sugar that will spike blood sugar. This is a desirable effect post-workout; however, in the early morning, this may cause the production of body fat.
Cell-Tech contains 10 grams of creatine per serving. The International Sports Sciences Association only recommends taking about 5 grams of creatine per day. The 5-gram serving of creatine is about all that is needed for creatine supplementation.
