We already know that creatine monohydrate is one of the most effective sports supplements on the planet no matter what your goal, but not all creatines are created equal!
You need to make sure you’ve got a quality creatine monohydrate in order to reap all of its benefits, and that is why we source none other than Creapure®, the ‘gold standard’ when it comes to 100% micronized creatine monohydrate. Creapure® is the brand name for pure creatine monohydrate produced by AlzChem Trostberg GmbH in Germany and is assured to be
Creatine is a substance that is found naturally in muscle cells. It helps your muscles to produce energy during heavy lifting or high-intensity exercise. Creatine is manufactured in the human body through the interaction of the amino acids arginine, glycine, and methionine in the kidney and liver.
Creatine increases the synthesis of a compound called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is your body’s primary source of energy for the phosphate energy system; the energy system which your body uses to power short, sharp muscle contractions and other anaerobic exercises. This allows your muscles to contract with more power for an increased number of repetitions, increasing your anaerobic exercise capacity. Creatine, therefore, allows you to train harder, for longer, and stimulate more muscle growth, resulting in an increase in muscle strength and size.
Typically speaking, consuming 5 – 10 grams of creatine monohydrate per day is adequate regardless of your size. Absorption will be improved with a carbohydrate or protein-based meal due to the related release of insulin.
To take advantage of the performance-enhancing effects of creatine monohydrate, it is best taken twice per day – first thing in the morning and post-workout.
Creatine loading: Some users may wish to complete a creatine monohydrate “loading cycle” once every 12-16 weeks, taking up to 30 grams per day split into six 5-gram doses for an entire week to completely saturate the skeletal muscle with creatine.
Creatine monohydrate supplementation should be as consistent as possible.
