o SUPPORTS PHYSICAL ENDURANCE – Creatine stores high energy phosphate groups which it donates to ADP allowing it to regenerate into ATP, the primary energy carrier in the body.
o PROMOTES POWER OUTPUT - Creatine has been shown to promote improved strength and power output during resistance exercise.
o SUPPORTS MENTAL ENDURANCE – Creatine promotes reductions in mental fatigue in states of demanding mental activity and sleep deprivation.
o MANUFACTURED IN THE USA - Our Creatine is manufactured right here in the USA and is tested for purity and potency.
Creatine is a substance naturally found within muscle cells which while not an amino acid itself has many similarities with amino acids and is produced from glycine and arginine. About half of an average person’s creatine is synthesized by the liver this way, while the rest is obtained through diet with red meat and seafood being especially rich sources. Most of the body’s creatine is found in muscle tissue, but some is present in the brain as well.
Creatine is extremely popular as a supplement among athletes and bodybuilders for its ability to support additional strength and power output during resistance training, but research has also shown it to support both physical and mental endurance under conditions of high exertion.
The most commonly recommended dosage for creatine is 3-5 grams per day, and the scoop included in our jar is dosed for a 5 gram daily dosage. Each day’s serving of creatine can be taken with or without food.
If taking creatine for bodybuilding, many protocols will recommend a “loading phase” of up to 20 grams of creatine per day for a week in order to saturate the muscles with it. We do not endorse such high doses of creatine as 5 grams per day is both plenty to achieve saturation over time, and much higher doses are more likely to cause side effects.
Creatine is one of the most well research supplements available, and multi-year human trials have revealed no negative effects. When taken at doses far exceeding the recommended 5 grams, bloating and GI discomfort are sometimes reported.
Creatine is sometimes associated with kidney disfunction because its metabolite Creatinine is used as a biomarker for diagnosing renal issues. Therefore people who are supplementing creatine will often have elevated creatinine levels which can cause false positives on kidney function tests. For this reason we recommend not supplementing creatine for at least one month before taking any kidney function tests to ensure accurate results.
