CREATINE MONOHYDRATE is a tripeptide (protein made of 3 amino acids) that is found primarily in red meat and is made in your body. Vegan, vegetarian and pescatarian diets tend to be low in creatine.
Arginine, Glycine and Methionine are the 3 amino acids that combine to make this natural energy molecule.
Creatine is one of the most clinically researched ergogenic aids available. It has been shown repeatedly to help boost power, strength, speed and recovery.
CREATINE MONOHYDRATE MAY HELP WITH...
- INCREASE POWER
- INCREASE STRENGTH
- SUPPORTING LEAN MUSCLE
- ENHANCED RECOVERY
Creatine provides most of its benefit by helping to transport phosphate into the mitochondria of your cells in the form of phosphocreatine.
This phosphocreatine supports ATP regeneration. Your body’s performance is limited by how quickly you can regenerate ATP. Therefore, because Creatine can support this process faster, you will perform and recover better.
