The Ultimate Creatine for Your Gains

Creatine is one supplement that many lifters for some reason are skeptical of. There are claims of going bald, horrible bloating or gut issues, and other side effects typically attributed to anabolic steroid usage. However, creatine is one of the most researched and scientifically proven supplements available, and it is actually very beneficial to your recovery and overall progression.

Let’s dive into what creatine does and which one we recommend. 

Creatine Overview

What is it? Creatine is an amino acid that is located mostly in your body’s muscles and even in the brain. You can get creatine through your diet, as it is found primarily in seafood and red meat, but in all honesty it will be at levels far below those found in synthetically made creatine supplements. The human body’s liver, pancreas and kidneys also can make about 1 gram of creatine per day.

Your body even stores creatine as phosphocreatine primarily in your muscles, where it’s used for energy. As a result, people take creatine orally to improve athletic performance and increase muscle mass.

Creatine Supplements 

As stated above, creatine supplements sometimes have a negative stigma surrounding them. People say that creatine will cause issues like hair loss, but no study has reported such side effects. Some have even reported hypogonadism, but creatine does not have an effect on testosterone at all. There are so many benefits to utilizing these supplements, that it is something to seriously consider in your supplement stack. 

Benefits may include: 

  • Strength, muscle size and performance. Oral creatine use might allow an athlete to do more work during reps or sprints, leading to greater gains in strength, muscle mass and performance. Creatine is often used by athletes involved in high-intensity intermittent activities that require a rapid recovery during training and competition.
  • Injury prevention. Oral creatine might reduce the frequency of dehydration, muscle cramping, and injuries to the muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons and nerves.
  • Sarcopenia and bone health. Creatine supplementation might help counteract age-related declines in skeletal muscle and bone mineral density.

With so many of these creatine supplements on the market, it may be hard to decide which one to pick up on your next trip to your local vitamin shop. Let us help you out and introduce you to one of our favorites.


Mutant has two different massive creatine products on the market, the first one is MUTANT CreaKONG. This is the ultimate product for muscle recovery. It is an advanced creatine accelerator that uses 3 of the most easily absorbed forms of creatine.

Next is MUTANT CreaKONG CX8 which is a step up from the regular CreaKONG, and contains a lot more than just creatine in it, but is absolutely optimal for a recovery product. It uses the tri blend of creatine, then also includes branched chain amino acids and a unique CSA. Let’s dive into the specifics of this advanced product.

MUTANT CreaKONG Ingredients

TOP 3 CREATINES that help build muscle, strength, size and power! Creatine is the #1 muscle building supplement of all time. Mutant Creakong combines the top 3 Creatines from the leading Creatine sources!

Beginning with the ingredients, MUTANT CreaKONG is an advanced creatine supplement that has been formulated to maximize your gains! Each serving contains three of the most cutting-edge forms of creatine commercially available and has been lab tested to ensure 100% purity in every bottle.

Now, on the other hand, there is MUTANT CreaKONG CX8. While most creatine supplements contain 5,000mg of just the monohydrate version of the supplement, CreaKONG is far more advanced. CreaKONG contains three different types of creatine: Creatine monohydrate, creatine malate, and creatine-magnesium Chelate, totaling up 4,000mg. 

It is also worth mentioning that the total amount of creatine on the label for CreaKONG CX8 is 4g (4,000mg), and the effective dose is typically 5g. While this may be a turn off to some as it appears underdosed, CreaKONG CX is engineered to boost creatine in other ways, such as through the CSA. This is not all though.

There also is a BCAA- Amino Blend in CreaKONG. The blend is made of taurine, instantized BCAA powder and a 2:1:1 ratio of L-leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-valine, totaling up 2,350mg. 

Finally, there is a CSA (creatine synthesis aminos), which is made of glycine, L-arginine, and L-methionine, totaling 1,650mg. Like a supercharger forcing air into a car engine, it ramps up your body’s ability to synthesize creatine. This is product unique and separates it from regular CREAKONG.

Both CreaKONG and CreaKONG CX8 combine some of the best ingredients for muscle recovery, and every lifter should know that recovery is the most important part of making gains. What you put in your body to help the muscles repair, that is really where you see the most growth. That being said, there are also no carbs, sugars, or filler products, so you will not be sacrificing your nutrition progress. 

MUTANT CreaKONG Prices and Flavors

Price is definitely a huge thing to take into consideration when buying your supplements. CreaKONG is a relatively inexpensive option, as it goes for $39.99 for 30 servings. That is 30 servings of a tri-blend of creatine. It is also an unflavored formula, so you can stack with other supplements.

On the other hand, MUTANT CreaKONG CX8 provides a BCAA supplement and a creatine supplement, all for the price of just $34.99 for a container of 30 servings. Buying your BCAAs and creatine products separately can be somewhat pricey, which is another bonus of CreaKONG CX8, as it puts both of these two into one container!

CREAKONG CX8 is an advanced creatine accelerator that uses 3 of the most easily absorbed forms of creatine + BCAAs + a unique CSM!

Now, you may be wondering what it tastes like as sometimes supplement blends can be gross. However, CreaKONG is unflavored, so you can mix it with anything. Put it in your pre-workout or protein shake, or just mix it with water. It has no taste!

Our Verdict on CreaKONG

A true review would not be complete if we did not try the products ourselves, and this is definitely a product that we had no trouble in testing out. Let’s get the bad stuff out of the way, although there isn’t much to discuss, the only thing we found is that you have to mix it fairly well. If you are putting it in a glass, just be sure to stir it well, and if you are using a shaker cup, just shake it up well. 

Onto the positive stuff, CreaKONG and CreaKONG CX8 both have their perks. For starters, the fact that they are unflavored was a plus for us, as we enjoy putting them right in our post workout protein shakes for the absolute ultimate recovery. In terms of physical benefits, we did notice some strength increases in the gym after a short amount of time using it. 

We also noticed some added size, which is something to be happy about. The best part about this, is we did not experience any bloating or gut issues with either of these products.

Overall, our verdict is certainly in CreaKONG’s favor. You really cannot beat the value for either of them. CreaKONG has a tri-blend of creatine, which is awesome. Then MUTANT CreaKONG CX8 combines two of the best recovery supplements into one, for a pretty good price. Then, you get all of the benefits of both those supplements (creatine and amino acids) to really help your muscles repair. 


All in all, creatine is definitely something to take into consideration on your next supplement run. There are so many benefits of creatine for your recovery, and overall your overall progression in the gym. With so many supplements of this nature on the market to choose from, MUTANT stands out with its products that combine different creatine, and even amino acids with creatine for maximum recovery.
