The original 100% pure creatine monohydrate.
Creatine is present in all of the body’s cells. It works like an extra power-pack for muscle cells, but also for brain and nerve cells. We get it from ingesting creatine-containing foods (such as meat and fish) and by manufacturing it ourselves from amino-acids. It is thought to be largely responsible for explosive movement and, in this way, it can contribute hugely to sport and exercise. You become stronger, can train harder, lift heavier weights and become leaner. And the benefits persist too.
Creatine is considered acceptable by WADA and is approved under food law in the EU. Creatine is normally stored in the cells at less than its full potential, so extra creatine is easily taken up and stored. This makes more cellular energy available to the body and benefits all tissues, in particular the brain, and not just muscles.
The European Community’s official Scientific Committee on Food in 2003 endorsed Creatine as the number one choice in nutritional training aids. The report states “Creatine supplementation improves exercise performance in sport events that require explosive, high-energy output activities especially of a repeated nature…….. A number of studies indicate that Creatine supplementation in conjunction with heavy resistance exercise training (e.g., 4 to 12 weeks in duration) enhances the normal physiological adaptations to a weight training program (149). Typical adaptations including, increases in body mass, fat-free mass, maximal strength and power, lifting volume, and muscle fiber hypertrophy, are all significantly enchanced concurrent with creatine supplementation………..”.
According to the 2012 EU EFSA Scientific Panel Report, by taking extra creatine, you can
“increase the total creatine content in human muscle by approximately 15-20 % … Such increases can be achieved by ingestion of 20 g per day for 4-5 days, but also by ingestion of 3 g per day over a period of one month. The increased creatine content in human muscle is maintained when the ingestion is reduced to 2 g per day after the original loading period.
Also available as Ultimate Body Fuel which consists of creatine in a highly effective delivery system.
