- Designed to enhance biovoluminization
- Faster recovery
- More energy for each training session
To perform optimally, muscles need a lot of energy. The body provides this energy, in situations like high-intensity exercise, in the form of ATP or adenosine triphosphate. Since the body stores only a limited supply of ATP, which lasts for only a few seconds of intense exercise, ATP must then be continuously produced to supply enough energy for the muscles to function.
A burst of energy is produced by the breakdown of ATP, when one phosphate group is released, creating metabolic energy. The body then uses creatine phosphate to quickly replenish ATP. Since creatine is stored in the muscle as creatine phosphate, the more creatine phosphate the muscles store, the better they can perform in events that require intense, immediate action, such as weightlifting, sprinting, jumping, football, hockey and soccer. Supplemental creatine can increase the creatine phosphate stores of the muscles and thus the production of energy that enables muscles to perform at higher intensity.
Creatine is, however, more than just an energy-boosting nutrient. It has a voluminizing effect on muscles. Cell voluminizing, or cellular hydration, involves binding of water to the muscle fiber. This binding, in turn, gives rise to the “pumped” look. Since water is bound inside the muscle, athletes using creatine do not have the “puffy” appearance. In other words, the muscle looks larger but, more importantly, has improved strength and has high energy and intensity, allowing the athlete to recover faster and have more energy for each training session.
DIRECTIONTake one rounded teaspoon, approx. 5 grams two times a day, evenly spaced, on an empty stomach.
Optional 8-week creatine monohydrate loading and maintenance cycle:
Week 1: Loading (20 g/day)
Weeks 2-5: Maintenance (10 g/day)
Weeks 6-8: Off (no creatine)
