eli5:Creatine Vs Protein Powder


Whats the difference and do they ever come pre-mixed.

I’ve done some research and a fair bit of asking and right now I’m reading that creatine and protein powders are two different supplements that come separately, with nutrition labels properly stating that creatine is included in the powder if in the off occasion that the product already has it premixed.

Although this information may be obvious for some, this topic is barely answered clearly, and requires some inferring.

I just want to make sure that creatine is not in my protein powder which is pvl isogold vanilla.

Any answers?

Short answer:
Protein is your body’s building blocks for muscle. If you don’t eat enough protein, your body will not build muscle, period.

Creatine is a naturally occurring non-protein compound which helps the body process energy. And if you can process energy a little bit better, you can lift more weights and get stronger.
