CREATINE MONOHYDRATE | THE MOST CLINICALLY STUDIED AND MOST POPULAR SPORTS SUPPLEMENT
• Increase strength
• Increase muscular endurance
• Increase lean muscle mass
• Maximize recovery
Short term supplementation of creatine has been shown to significantly increase muscular performance. It is felt that it may help athletes work out at a higher intensity during resistance exercise. A resulting greater training stimulus over time may result in enhanced physiologic adaptations. In the body, creatine helps to regenerate ADP (spent energy) back into ATP for increased energy output involving short, intense bursts of energy.
Creatine is a non-essential amino acid that is an important source of chemical energy for muscle contraction. Once creatine reaches the muscles, it’s converted into Phosphocreatine (creatine phosphate), and ultimately becomes the body’s primary energy source; adenosine triphosphate. In your skeletal muscles, where you generate the energy for movement, creatine participates in the complex muscle contraction process to maximize muscle energy. Adenosine Triphosphate, abbreviated to ATP, is a key fuel for muscle contraction, the repetition exercises you perform when bodybuilding. The more ATP you make available to your muscles the more energy created to power bodybuilding and boost performance in aerobic energy demanding sports, like sprinting, rowing, bodybuilding. Normal levels of ATP allow you only a few seconds of high intensity energy
As a dietary supplement, take 1 scoop daily or as directed by a physician. For loading: take 1 serving (5 grams) 4 times per day (total of 20 grams) for 5 days with 12-16 oz of water or non-acidic juice. For maintenance: take 1 serving (5 grams) daily with 12-16 oz of water or non-acidic juice.
