The only ingredient that stands out as being potentially underdosed is the tart cherry concentrate. A maximum dose of Halo only contains 500 mg, which would be unlikely to provide adequate levels of the active components as studied by scientists. In addition to this, this reviewer would have liked to see a higher proportion of the faster digesting hydrolysed whey protein, or perhaps the substitution of whey protein concentrate with whey protein isolate. Finally, this reviewer would also have liked to see higher proportions of the more exotic carb sources, instead of relying predominantly on maltodextrin. Although fixing all these minor flaws would make the product superior, it would however make the product prohibitively expensive. So overall, MuscleTech have struck a good balance between quality and value.
MuscleTech Platinum 100% Creatine provides your muscles with the world’s highest quality and most clinically researched form of micronized creatine powder. Creatine is shown to increase lean muscle and improve strength and endurance. *In one clinical study, subjects using the dose of creatine found in one max serving of MuscleTech Platinum 100% Creatine gained an amazing 6 lbs. of muscle in just 6 And in a separate study, test subjects increased their bench press strength by an impressive % in just 10 days! Unlike other creatine formulas that provide a small, non-studied dose of creatine HCl, MuscleTech Platinum 100% Creatine delivers a full 5 gram dose of HPLC-tested creatine monohydrate that has been scientifically shown to build muscle and strength.
