|Creatine Monohydrate | 5,000 mg|
The performance-enhancing effects of creatine are irrefutable and among the most widely researched of all natural supplements.
As it stands, a majority of the studies have been conducted on the effects of creatine monohydrate on health, strength, and performance output. Regardless of the form, however, supplementation with creatine has regularly shown to increase strength, fat free mass, and muscle growth with heavy resistance training.
Clinical Studies Referencing the Effects of Creatine:
A meta-analysis on the effect of creatine supplementation on body composition and performance found that the "effect size was greater for changes in lean body mass following short-term creatine supplementation". 
Another meta-analysis researching the effectiveness for strength and mass found creatine and HMB to be the only two supplements to significantly increase net lean mass gains and strength gains. 
An updated review from the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition suggests that creatine supplementation combined with resistance training helps to improve training adaptations (at a cellular and sub-cellular level).
A study conducted by the Institute of Sport and Physical Education in Warsaw, Poland found that supplementing with creatine monohydrate and HMB resulted in greater increases in lean body mass and strength when used together, as opposed to independent use. 
StrengthSeries Creatine HMB contains 5,000 mg (5 grams) (Creatine Monohydrate).
|β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate (HMB) | 1,500 mg|
HMB, similar to creatine monohydrate, has been shown to increase strength, lean body mass, and decrease fat mass, when used in conjunction with resistance training.
Clinical Studies Referencing the Effects of HMB:
A meta analysis on nine weeks of HMB supplementation on strength and body composition in resistance trained men found a clear effect on fat-free mass and a substantial benefit to strengthening lower-body muscle. 
This controlled study of weight training elderly men found HMB to increase muscle strength and lean mass, while simultaneously decreasing fat. 
This study, focusing on the effects of HMB on aerobic-performance and body composition in college students, concluded that HMB supplementation positively affects selected components of aerobic performance in active college students. 
This study is centered around the effects of HMB supplementation on oxygen capacity for endurance athletes, which found that blood glucose was significantly greater during HMB use and concludes that HMB supplementation may have positive affects on performance. 
StrengthSeries Creatine HMB contains 1,500 mg of HMB per serving.
|BioPerine® | 5 mg|
Bioperine is an extract obtained from the black pepper fruit. In its patented form, BioPerine has been clinically tested (in the United States) to significantly enhance the bioavailability of various supplement nutrients through increased absorption.
StrengthSeries Creatine HMB contains 5 mg of BioPerine per serving.
|Vitamin D | 12.5 mcg|
Vitamin D helps regulate levels of calcium and phosphorus in the body. It has been shown to support muscle growth, improve mental sharpness, reduce fatigue when training.
StrengthSeries Creatine HMB contains 12.5 mcg of Vitamin D per serving.

Should You Take Creatine Monohydrate?
There are a multitude of ways creatine benefits active individuals, especially those who regularly engage in high-intensity training like weight lifting and sprinting. As it stands, creatine is the undisputed champion of performance supplementation. If you're wondering when to take creatine for optimal benefits, post-workout is likely ideal based on the current evidence. The most important thing to keep in mind is that creatine monohydrate remains the most thoroughly studied form of supplemental creatine (by far).
"When is the best time to take creatine?"
Research shows that creatine is best absorbed after intense training due to the acute physiological response to exercise that relies predominantly on the phosphocreatine and anaerobic energy systems . We have a separate article that goes more in-depth on the science of creatine absorption: When to Take Creatine Supplements.
"What's the best creatine supplement?"
It won't come as any surprise that creatine monohydrate remains the most-studied sports supplement (literally). Other forms of creatine, namely creatine HCl (hydrochloride), creatine anhydrous, and creatine magnesium chelate are viable options if you don't respond well to creatine monohydrate. Still, it's advisable to start with the monohydrate form before diving into the "exotic" stuff.
Also, bear in mind that not all creatine monohydrate supplements are the same quality, which is where things get a bit confusing. You can't judge a creatine supplement by how popular it is or what the label on the bottle looks like. It's what's in the container that matters, and you deserve to know exactly what you're putting in your body when you take a creatine supplement. This is why every batch of Transparent Labs Creatine HMB is third-party tested and verified for purity and potency.
