Creatine Monohydrate by APS
CREATINE MONOHYDRATE- HPLC VERIFIED PURE 100% POTENCY!
Short term supplementation of creatine has been shown to significantly increase muscular performance. It is felt that it may help athletes work out at a higher intensity during resistance exercise. A resulting greater training stimulus over time may result in enhanced physiologic adaptations. In the body, creatine helps to regenerate ADP (spent energy) back into ATP for increased energy output involving short, intense bursts of energy.
Creatine is a natural substance that is synthesized in the body from three amino acids, arginine, glycine and methionine. It’s also found naturally in certain foods. Our supplier is the largest Creatine Monohydrate manufacturer in the world and holds the USA patent (#US6,326,513) for Creatine Monohydrate production. This patented manufacturing processes eliminates unwanted by-products often found in lesser quality creatine. Inferior raw materials and manufacturing processes that are not continuously monitored or adapted to the product, result in impurities such as creatinine, dicyandiamide, dihydrotriazine and if so thiourea.
Creatine is a non-essential amino acid that is an important source of chemical energy for muscle contraction. Once creatine reaches the muscles, it’s converted into Phosphocreatine (creatine phosphate), and ultimately becomes the body’s primary energy source; adenosine triphosphate. In your skeletal muscles, where you generate the energy for movement, creatine participates in the complex muscle contraction process to maximize muscle energy. Adenosine Triphosphate, abbreviated to ATP, is a key fuel for muscle contraction, the repetition exercises you perform when bodybuilding. The more ATP you make available to your muscles the more energy created to power bodybuilding and boost performance in aerobic energy demanding sports, like sprinting, rowing, bodybuilding. Normal levels of ATP allow you only a few seconds of high intensity energy.
Although creatine’s role in the energy production process is its most notable trait, there is evidence that creatine can stimulate muscle growth. It does this a couple of different ways. By allowing you to perform more work as a result of additional energy, increased protein synthesis is stimulated. Secondly, when an abundance of creatine phosphate is stored in the muscle, the muscle will hold more water in its cells and become what is known as “volumized” or “super-hydrated.” The more volumized a muscle is, the more it will promote the synthesis of protein as well as deter the breakdown of protein. Volumizing the muscle will also create an environment where an increased level of Glycogen Synthesis will take place. Increased protein synthesis along with training will lead to muscle growth. There is also scientific evidence that shows supplementation with creatine causes muscle tears to repair themselves quicker. The conversion of ADP to ATP takes place inside the mitochondria. These are tiny “power plants” that convert energy. The mitochondria are where cellular respiration takes place, which is the process that generates the fuel that our cells use as energy.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 scoop daily or as directed by a physician. For loading: take 1 serving (5 grams) 4 times per day (total of 20 grams) for 5 days with 12-16 oz of water or non-acidic juice. For maintenance: take 1 serving (5 grams) daily with 12-16 oz of water or non-acidic juice.
