November 27, 2013Reviewer: Sean in China* Despite reading some mixed online reviews about how the Ethyl Ester form of creatine compares, I wanted to try something different; normal creatine caps were affecting my stomach and giving me some 'anxious bowel symptoms'! I take creatine mainly for recovery and had previously tried the ON caps.
I'm not sure if I had a bad batch of these Axis Labs caps; they seem to absorb quite easily and are quite effective, but I soon noticed symptoms of indigestion, even if taken with food. Also, during the time that I was taking these caps, I suffered pains in my chest. So much so, that I went and had a heart scan (thankfully checking out ok)! But this discomfort seemed directly related to my consumption of this product. Finally, the caps themselves soon started to disintegrate; within 3-4 weeks of opening the bottle, they were completely stuck together, in a solid mass, and required breaking apart. The powder inside the caps is very bitter and acidic.
Netrition's service was, as ever, excellent; a full refund was given.

I can even feel it working on non-workout days. I like to take it with some BCAA aminos for an extra kick.This review is specific to Creatine Ethyl Ester

2 of 2 people found the following review helpfulNovember 10, 2007Reviewer: Fredrick in Texas* Excellent product. I tried another Creatine Ethyl Ester brand and saw no results. With this brand (Axis Labs) I saw results within a week. My muscles felt harder and I could see a difference in the mirror. I've recommended it to others and they have seen similar results.
