What Does Creatine Monohydrate Do?
Creatine is synthesized in the liver and stored in the major muscles, including cardiac and skeletal tissues. Once inside the muscle cells, creatine is phosphorylated to form creatine phosphate (CP), which, as a high energy substrate for the universal energy molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP), assists in the contraction of the myofibrils (muscle fibers).* Creatine Phosphate is utilized to maintain higher levels of ATP during exercise.* Creatine Phosphate maximizes physical performance and reduces exercise fatigue by absorbing hydrogen ions released by muscles in the form of lactic acid.* Intense anaerobic exercise, such as weight lifting and sprinting, depletes ATP and greatly increases the demand for creatine.*
Stir 1 scoop (6 g) of Creatine Monohydrate into 20 oz. of water or fruit juice (Glucose, as found in certain fruit juices, enhances uptake and utilization of creatine monohydrate); for higher intakes, consult your qualified healthcare professional.
NOTE: If you have a medical condition (especially kidney or liver disorders), are pregnant, lactating, trying to conceive, under the age of 18, or taking medications, consult your healthcare professional before using this product.
