If you're any kind of athlete, with any kind of strength, power or lean muscle goals, we beg you make sure Creatine is part of your stack. As one of the best understood and most scientifically proven substances on the market - its literally a no-brainer (but we've summarised our research below for you, just in case you're curious). Proven for increased strength (up to 26%!), increased power, increased muscle mass and even reduced fatigue and recovery time, matched with the pure and reliable standard of ATP Science products, it's time you welcomed ATP Science Creatine to your cupboard immediately!
- Proven for increased training performance - Increased muscle mass - Highest quality micronized Creatine Monohydrate - 100% Natural, Pure and GMO-Free
Creatine is undoubtedly one of the most well-understood and scientifically-based supplements known to man. Creatine plays a huge role in the skeletal muscle system - the one that gets you performing stronger, faster and more powerful. And, to its credit, Creatine is back with numerous research studies that support its benefits in increasing muscle mass, power output, training performance and energy output. So, no wonder its almost a household name within any fitness family, right?!
So what actually is creatine? It's a compound found naturally within muscle cells, which is effectively used to recycle ATP (the unit of energy in our muscles). It also plays a huge role in providing short-term energy for explosive activity (i.e. the first 10 seconds of activity). Your body can and does create creatine naturally, however, additional supplementation has shown huge benefits to a number of people from a variety of sporting backgrounds.
All the associated benefits we listed above actually make a great deal of sense when we think about it simply. Since creatine plays a role in recycling and replenishing energy, it also makes a real difference when it comes to ensuring your muscles have energy to perform. With increased energy, your muscles are able to physically do more (i.e. increased strength and power) and with increased stimulus from doing more, your muscles are more likely to grow (i.e. increased muscle mass).
Creatine also has a proven and known role in increasing replenishment of glycogen (energy from carbohydrates) - which further increases our energy production and has an effect on levels of depression, fatigue and endurance during a workout!
Creatine is a substance found in muscle that combines with phosphate to form creatine phosphate. Creatine phosphate reacts with adenosine di-phosphate to regenerate adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP – stored energy) in working muscle. Dietary supplementation of creatine may increase the total creatine and creatine phosphate content of the muscle. ATP's Creatine Monohydrate comes in both 500gm (100 serves) and 1kg (200 serves) sizes for your convenience.
Researchers have found that muscle creatine phosphate levels drop significantly after the performance of a 300 meter run, which lasts 30 to 40 s suggesting that the lack of creatine phosphate may somehow limit performance during intense, short term exercise.
