Creatine Monohydrate is a 100% pure, pharmaceutical grade creatine supplement. There are no fillers, no additional ingredients, just pure creatine for enhanced, quality gains in muscle size and strength.
Creatine is a substance that is found naturally within our bodies and forms part of the substance that is used as the predominant source of energy during the first 5-15 seconds of maximal intensity exercise. Although found throughout the body, the majority of creatine is stored within the skeletal muscle. Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP) is a key energy source that is used by the body to produce energy. Creatine or creatine phosphate plays an essential role in the restoration of this energy source (ATP).
Because creatine is only found in small amounts in various foods we consume, supplementing with creatine can be of great benefit for a variety of athletes. Simple creatine supplementation can significantly increase our muscle creatine stores. With creatine playing a vital role in the production of energy during the first 10 seconds of exercise, this supplementation can result in enhanced gains in both strength and power.
By supplementing with creatine you can increase the amount of creatine within the muscle causing cell volumisation and enhanced energy production. When combined with resistance training, creatine can produce many advantageous physiological benefits. Creatine supplementation is a simple and effective way to reap increases in both strength and muscle mass.
Recent studies have demonstrated that taking creatine orally; can increase phosphocreatine levels within the muscle fibres. By increasing the levels of available phosphocreatine in the muscle, you can increase the levels of ATP, Rush, Tullson, and Terjung (1998). This allows skeletal muscle to maintain a high level of explosive power during short duration high intensity exercise, Balsom et.al. (1995). Not only were phosphocreatine levels increased, but Balsom et.al. (1995) also found that lactic acid levels were reduced with creatine supplementation. Because of this it has been suggested that oral creatine supplementation speeds up the breakdown of phosphocreatine, thereby accelerating the production of ATP.
Creatine monohydrate is also a micronized creatine product. What this means for you is that the creatine particle size is smaller than standard creatine formulas. Ultimately, Micronized Creatine Monohydrate can result in quicker digestion, faster utilisation and more rapid gains in muscle, strength and power performance.
