GNC has ostensibly created another supplement category with their new Accelerator series. GNC Accelerator Creatine is purely an add on supplement, and wasn’t designed to be taken as a standalone supplement.

The directions specifically tell you to add it to either your pre and post-workout supplements, an amino acid product, or protein powder.

Time will tell whether other companies follow suit. For now, here’s everything you need to know about GNC Accelerator Creatine.

Micro Peptide Creatine Complex

The creatine blend in here is comprised of a few higher quality forms of creatine like magnesium creatine chelate, creatine HCL, creatine anhydrous, and micronized creatine monohydrate. Each serving contains 5 g of creatine.

Here’s a quick rundown of the different creatine types:

• Magnesium creatine chelate- Combing creatine with magnesium enhances ATP production, helping to increase strength and endurance.

• Creatine HCL- The HCL salt improves creatine’s absorption and solubility. Consequently, you don’t need to take as much of it compared to other forms of creatine.

• Creatine Anhydrous- A form of creatine with the water molecule removed, which provides a greater percentage of creatine.

• Micronized creatine monohydrate- Micronized creatine has a lot of the impurities removed so you don’t get an excess buildup of waste products such as creatinine.

N.O. Pump Charger

In addition to the creatine complex, GNC Accelerator Creatine also provides some additional ingredient to boost nitric oxide production. You’ll find both arginine and beet root in here, which enhance blood flow to muscles for better pumps, muscle growth and recovery.

What’s more, the formula also includes Russian tarragon and citrus sinensis to improve nutrient delivery and absorption.

Stack for Success

It’s worth mentioning one more time that GNC Accelerator Creatine is intended to be stacked with your pre-existing supplements. And when viewed through that lens, it’s not a bad value. There are 24 servings per container, and the price breaks down to about $1 per serving.

In my humble opinion it would be best to add GNC Accelerator Creatine to something like an intra-workout amino acid supplement since ingredients like arginine are best absorbed on an empty stomach.
This will help boost your pump while you work out and improve overall performance. Right now you can buy GNC Accelerator Creatine in either fruit punch or mild flavor, which I assume is another name for unflavored.

I tried the fruit punch flavor, and I’d say it’s your average fruit punch. Not terrible, but not exactly great either. It also mixes well, there was a little bit of settling on the bottom, but nothing uncommon with a supplement like this.
