Creapure® is made by chemical synthesis.
Our products are manufactured abiding the strictest guidelines used in the pharmaceutical and food industry. The GMP manufacturing practice standards ensure high quality production throughout the entire manufacturing process. In order to identify and eliminate any sources of contamination or processing disturbances, we operate according to the principles of the HACCP concept (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points). The plant, especially built for the production of Creapure®, eliminates nearly all risk of cross-contamination or contamination by other products.
Creapure® is produced on a completely closed production line, beginning with the delivery of raw materials to the final packaging process. Each production batch is tested with high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and other analytical techniques before being released for shipment.

Each batch of Creapure® is tested for purity before leaving the factory. Creapure® is listed on the Cologne List®. The Cologne List® publishes products with minimized risk of doping, which have been tested by a globally recognized laboratory for selected doping substances.
There are several ways to manufacture creatine commercially. AlzChem Trostberg GmbH uses a process starting from sarcosinate and cyanamide. This method of production is considered the best and safest. In this way, AlzChem Trostberg GmbH minimizes the risk that the creatine produced will contain two undesirable by-products: dicyandiamide (DCD) and dihydrotriazine (DHT). Pure creatine should contain no more than a few tens of parts per million (ppm) of DCD and no detectable DHT, which is potentially harmful. This is the case with Creapure®.
The breakdown of creatine during manufacturing or storage can produce creatinine. Levels above one...read more

Creapure® is the brand name used by AlzChem for creatine monohydrate. It contains the natural form of creatine as it occurs in the body. It is effective, safe and easily absorbed by the body. The fine white powder remains stable during storage.
AH stands for anhydrous. Creatine monohydrate contains about 88% creatine, while Creapure® AH contains 100%. The same amount of creatine can therefore be stored in a smaller volume. This may be an advantage, if only a limited volume is available (eg in capsule form). Once resolved, Creapure® AH behaves like Creapure®.
Creapure® Citrate is a chemical compound with creatine and citrate in a 3: 1 molar ratio. While Creapure® is tasteless, Creapure® Citrate is characterized by its lemon flavor and improved solubility.
Once dissolved, this mixture of Creapure® with a buffer consisting of sodium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate forms an alkaline solution with a pH of about 10.
Creapure® Gluco is the product name for chewable tablets made from Creapure® which have a small dextrose content. The tablets contain one gram of creatine monohydrate per tablet and can be taken without water, making them particularly suitable for active usage. Creapure® Gluco is available in lemon or raspberry flavor.
