CREAPURE CREATINE MONOHYDRATE
Highly researched, creatine monohydrate has been shown to support muscle strength, power, and size when combined with high-intensity activities. Our Micronized Creatine Powder is made with Creapure®, a creatine monohydrate known for its exceptional purity. It’s also micronized (to make the particles smaller), so our powder mixes easier and stays suspended in liquid longer than non-micronized creatine supplements.
- Supports strength & performance: Creatine helps the muscle to build phosphocreatine which gives the ability to perform better at shorter, intense, strength-building exercise.
- Promotes muscle growth: Creatine triggers several processes that form new protein in muscle, subsequently creating new muscle mass.
- Improves recovery: Supplementation with creatine increases the rate of creatine phosphate resynthesis during exercise which lowers blood lactate accumulation and ammonia levels and improves recovery.
1 ) What is Creatine?
Creatine is a non-essential – but highly recommended – dietary compound found abundantly in meat and fish. It is synthesized in the body, primarily in the liver, from the three amino acids, arginine, glycine, and methionine.
2 ) How does it work?
During high-intensity workouts, our body uses Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) as the source of energy. Creatine helps to regenerate these ATP stores and continue the supply of energy.
3 ) Why do I need Creatine?
Creatine is found naturally in meat and fish. If you are a vegetarian, you may be creatine deficient. Hence, Creatine supplements can help you have sufficient creatine stores to provide energy, reduce muscle cell damage and inflammation, and promote a complete recovery.
4 ) Do they have any side-effects?
Creatine is a natural amino acid and doesn’t have any side-effects when consumed as recommended. But drink at least 8 glasses of water every day when supplementing with creatine to ensure muscle hydration.
5 ) What is the best time to take Creatine?
Creatine can be loaded anytime in a day before workouts, post-workouts, with meals or while going to bed. Taking 5 g of creatine pre-workout and 5 g of protein immediately after a workout can be more effective.
6 ) Can I mix it with a protein shake?
Yes, creatine is unflavored and mixes instantly. So you can stir it with your protein shakes.
