What is CREA-ACTIV® Creatine?

HUGE Gorilla’s® CREA-ACTIV® Creatine is 100% vegan. It works more efficiently than most creatines due to us lowering the pH of the creatine mix. This dramatically increases the solubility by more than 40 times and 60% more absorption and more bioavailable than standard Creatine Monohydrate.

Benefits Of Crea-activ®

​Ultra Concentrated

​Increases Strength And Power

​Increases Muscle Mass

​Increased Fat Loss

Supports Muscle Recovery

​Improves Sports Performance

​Part of a Healthy Vegan Diet

​Potent Micro Dose

​Greater Absorption

​Increased Solubility

​No Bloating or Water Retention


What is Creatine?

Creatine is well-recognised by sports scientists and athletes as the most effective supplement

ingredients you can take to promote muscle growth, it is a molecule that is stored as high-energy phosphates in the form of phosphocreatine, which help produce ATP (adenosine triphosphate). It sounds complicated, but it’s simple. ATP is the primary energy used by the body during periods of high energy, such as intense physical or mental activity. Creatine helps you to produce more of it. Which is a good thing.


Creatine works as an energy buffer for your muscles in the form of phosphocreatine. With an

increased level of it you’ll see an improvement when doing repeated high intensity efforts, like lifting weights with a relatively high number of repetitions (10-15), and when sprinting repeatedly, like in many team sports.


CREA-ACTIV® For Vegans

Creatine is a naturally occurring amino acid compound which is primarily found in food sources such as red meat, seafood, and poultry. It’s not surprising, then, that adopting a vegan or vegetarian diet decreases muscle creatine stores and vegans and vegetarians therefore typically have lower levels of creatine in their blood and muscle tissue.


The research also highlights the potential benefit of creatine supplementation for vegans due to our low pre-existing muscle creatine stores. In this study, the researchers found that supplemental creatine increased previously low creatine stores in vegetarians, who demonstrated greater improvements in fat-free body mass, maximal strength and type II muscle fibre area compared to omnivores.


Therefore, creatine supplementation may be a beneficial ergogenic aid for vegan athletes and

exercisers, and may compensate for decreased levels of muscle creatine stores that result from the nature of our lifestyle choice.
