Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

What's in Basis?

Basis is one of the first gummies to pack 1g of creatine monohydrate in a single (tasty) gummy!

Creatine is a natural compound found in the body and certain foods. It helps produce energy for high-intensity activities like weightlifting and sprinting. Creatine monohydrate is the most widely used and studied form, known for its safety and effectiveness. Numerous studies have shown it can support athletic performance and muscle growth.

Is it safe? Does it work?

Each of our delicious creatine gummies contain 1g of creatine monohydrate. To unlock the full benefits of the health-boosting power of creatine monohydrate folks are recommended to take 2-3 grams (aka gummies) once a day, every day. And for those doing more moderate exercise, and 4-5 grams for heavy exercise.

You can also read about the classification of creatine monohydrate as Generally Recognized as Safe in the FDA's 2020 notice, "Creatine Monohydrate GRAS Notification"

Who should take creatine?

Creatine supplementation is commonly used by fitness enthusiasts to enhance their performance and support muscle growth. However, creatine can potentially benefit various individuals, including:

  • Athletes and fitness enthusiasts: Those involved in high-intensity sports or exercise activities, such as weightlifting, sprinting, or HIIT, can benefit from creatine supplementation. It may help improve strength, power, and exercise performance during short bursts of intense activity.
  • Individuals seeking muscle growth: Creatine can aid in increasing muscle mass, especially when combined with resistance training. It helps enhance muscle protein synthesis and may lead to greater gains in muscle size over time.
  • Vegetarians and vegans: Since creatine is primarily found in animal-based foods like meat and fish, individuals following vegetarian or vegan diets may have lower natural creatine levels. Supplementing with creatine can help address this deficiency and support their physical performance.
  • Older adults: Aging is associated with a decline in muscle mass and strength. Some studies suggest that creatine supplementation, coupled with resistance training, may benefit older adults by increasing muscle strength and functional capacity.
  • Those with certain medical conditions: Some research has shown potential benefits of creatine for certain medical conditions, such as neuromuscular disorders and muscle-wasting conditions. However, it is essential to consult a healthcare professional before using creatine as a complementary treatment for any medical condition.
What should I expect when consuming a Basis gummy?

Unlike your typical, meh-tasting creatine monohydrate power, Basis Gummy's benefits come in a tasty orange flavored gummy. After rounds of iterating on the formula, we're confident you'll grow to look forward to taking your gummy vs. dread that chalky powder you're used to drinking.

If you decide to stop consuming creatine altogether, you won't experience any kind of withdrawal. Except for maybe missing the deliciousness of the gummy ;)

When should I take it and can I take it on an empty stomach?

You'll see the best results from daily supplementation. As for what time of the day though, it really doesn't matter!

Many people eat Basis gummies on an empty stomach without problem.

Why is creatine monohydrate better than other forms of creatine?

Creatine monohydrate is considered better than other forms of creatine for several reasons:

  • Safety and efficacy: Creatine monohydrate is the most well-researched and studied form of creatine. Numerous studies have demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in improving athletic performance, muscle strength, and muscle mass.
  • Absorption and bioavailability: Creatine monohydrate has excellent solubility, making it easily absorbed by the body. It dissolves well and is readily available for use in the muscles.
  • Purity and quality: Creatine monohydrate is a simple and pure form of creatine, without additional compounds or additives. This ensures that you're getting a product that is solely creatine, without unnecessary fillers or impurities.
How long until I start to see results?

The time it takes to see results from creatine supplementation can vary from person to person.

Generally, some individuals may notice changes within a few days to a week, while others may take a few weeks before experiencing noticeable effects. In most cases though, individuals may start to notice improvements in strength, endurance, and muscle fullness after using creatine daily, every day for ~2 weeks.
