Max’s Creatine X-8 is a creatine supplement designed to increase workout intensity by improving strength, power and endurance.
Max’s has been producing hardcore bodybuilding supplements for the Australian bodybuilding market for decades.
They are a part of the AminoActive Supplement company.
Creatine X-8 is a blend of the following sustained release forms of creatine:
Creatine Ethyl Ester
Creatine Ethyl Ester is a very soluble form of creatine that it is claimed will be more readily absorbed by the muscle cell. However, this has been disproved (1).
Tri-Creatine Malate mixes creatine with malic acid to speed up absorption rates.
Di-Creatine Malate is a slower version of Di-Creatine Malate, which provides a more sustained release of creatine into the cell.
Micronized Creatine Monohydrate
Creatine monohydrate is the most studied form of this organic compound.
Creatine HCL is creatine blended with hydrochloride. It is claimed that this mix will provide better results with smaller doses than other forms of creatine.
It is claimed that this mix will provide better results with smaller doses than other forms of creatine. There is no evidence, however, to support this.
Creatine Anhydrous is a pure form of creatine that provides a sustained release od the compound into the muscle cell.
Creatine Gluconate bonds creatine with glucose. This allows the creatine to absorb the same way that glucose does, improving intestinal absorption.
Tri-Creatine Orotate mixes creatine with Orotate acid, which increases the levels of creatine phosphate in the cell.
Who Takes It?
Max’s Creatine X-8 is taken by hard training iron pumpers looking to intensify their training strength, power and endurance.

Max’s Creatine X-8 provides you with a variety of creatine formulas in order to speed up absorption into the cell. However, there is no hard data proving that any forms are more effective than creatine monohydrate.
While it may not do it much faster, this blend will deliver quality creatine to your cells in order for them to perform with more power, strength and endurance.
