Creatine is a compound naturally found in the body. It is made by the combination of the amino acids Arginine, Glycine and Methionine. It supplies energy to the muscles and is produced in the liver, pancreas and kidneys. Creatine is involved in many different functions in the body.
Its main roles are to provide energy for the muscles, enhance protein synthesis, act as a lactic acid buffer and increase cell volume. By supplementing with Creatine Hydrochloride you can ensure these systems are as efficient as possible. You can derive Creatine from food sources, but as the amount is so small, you would need to eat an excessive amount to get the same benefits as you would from supplementing.
Inside the muscle, Creatine bonds to a phosphate molecule to produce phosphocreatine, an important factor in the recycling of ATP (Adenoside TriPhosphate). ATP is the primary source of energy for muscle contraction, as well as other bodily functions. As ATP is used during muscle contractions, such as during exercise, phosphocreatine donates a phosphate molecule to ADP to create ATP, which can then be used to provide additional energy to the working muscles.
The increase in Creatine and phoshocreatine can lead to a gain in lean muscle mass, improve workout performance, enhance strength and power, and offer therapeutic benefits, including the prevention of ATP depletion, stimulation or protein synthesis and cell volumization.
Take with water or juice post-training when Creatine uptake is at maximum efficiency.
