Creapure® Creatine monohydrate is a powder that enhances performance over successive bursts of short-term, high intensity exercise. Creatine Monohydrate is the single most researched form of creatine in the world and has been thoroughly tested and proven to deliver for athletes across all different sectors, seeking a variety of goals. The scientific evidence behind the use of Creatine is so strong that it is widely regarded as the single most effective legal performance enhancing substance an athlete can use.
Creatine is a nonessential dietary protein-like compound found in high abundance in meat and fish. It is synthesized in the body, primarily in the liver, from the three amino acids, arginine, glycine and methionine. Muscle tissue does not produce creatine, and therefore it must take up creatine from the bloodstream. Once inside muscle cells, creatine gets a high-energy phosphate attached to it and is then known as phosphocreatine (PCr) or creatine phosphate. It is this high-energy molecule that is one of the most critical components of creatine’s beneficial effects in the body. That’s because creatine donates its high-energy phosphate to create ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is used by the muscle for the rapid energy it needs for muscle contraction, such as during weight-lifting. Supplementing with creatine is reported to increase the content of PCr in muscle by approximately 20% Having more PCr in muscle cells means more ATP can be rapidly produced during exercise, which can lead to gains in strength, power, speed and muscle growth. The real beauty of Creatine supplementation is that having muscle cells loaded with PCr means that we can recover betweens sets quicker and perform maximal efforts more regularly than without using creatine.
Breaking this down in simple terms: If I can perform a set of 8 reps to failure and then after a rest of 3 minutes perform another set of 8 reps, theoretically I am going to deliver better gains than if that second set dropped to 6 reps. Creatine supplementation and muscle cells filled with PCr help our ability to repeat maximal efforts.
