Creatine for lactovegans

A common problem that most vegetarian and vegan body builders face, is locating good vegetarian nutrition sources. As you know, vegetarian diet lacks in Creatine, which is essential for higher performance and for bulking up. Almost all athletes use some form of creatine as a dietary supplement.

So, I had been searching for quite a while for good vegetarian Creatine supplements and today I finally found one at Vitamin world. Its called ‘Creatine Ethyl Ester – AKG’ by ‘Precision Limited’ and is available as tablets.

The label on this does not list any animal sources, but I wasn’t sure if it is pure vegetarian. The guys at the store were not sure about this either :-/, but told that I can return it (even if it’s opened) if I didn’t like it..

So, I bought it anyway, thinking I would call the Vitamin World to confirm. And as it turns out, Cathy from Vitamin World found that this product is listed as Vegetarian in their database!! Cathy was helpful enough to search their data base for more vegetarian Creatine products..

Here is the complete list:

Creatine Ethyl Ester (Tablets)..
High Performance Creatine – Fruit Punch (Powder).
High Performance Creatine – Grape (Powder).
Creatine Hardcore (Powder).

  1. creatine will make it “hard” for a guy to get it up and it will give you zits on your back…. even though our bodies produce our own creatine – taking it orally is basically like taking a steroid… And you are wrong – most athletes DON’T take creatine.
