Use Creatine Monohydrate to:
• Build muscle mass
• Dramatically increase strength
• Accelerate post-workout recovery
• Cell-volumisation resulting in fuller, harder muscle tone
• Most widely used supplement in professional sport
• Purest creatine available – maximum absorption and effect
• Buffers lactic acid build-up
Creatine supplementation, when combined with resistance (weight) training or intensive, short bursts of power training (such as sprinting) increases strength and lean muscle mass and accelerates recovery, making creatine the most widely used sports supplement.
Body builders, power athletes and endurance athletes can benefit by including creatine as part of a scientific training, nutrition and supplementation plan.
Creatine Monohydrate is the sport supplement industry’s most researched and widely used product.
How does Creatine actually work?
Creatine Monohydrate is the sports supplement industry’s most researched and widely used product. Sci-MX’s Creatine Monohydrate assists the body’s natural production of ATP which is the fuel used by the muscles during intense muscle contraction. Creatine Monohydrate increases strength levels in weight training or other forms of strength training, which results in additional micro-trauma to muscle tissue, leading to adaptive muscle growth.
Creatine Monohydrate supplementation also replaces creatine phosphate which would otherwise only be able to occur by the breaking down of existing amino acids in muscle tissue, therefore recovery is also greatly enhanced. By using only the highest quality European produced creatine and ensuring that sufficient fluid is consumed, Creatine Monohydrate can be used completely safely without any negative effects.
ATP (Adenosine tri-phosphate) which is energy in it's simplest form in muscles, consists of one adenosine molecule and three phosphate molecules, and exists naturally in muscle tissue. When muscles contract against extreme resistance (i.e. when training with weights), a message is sent through neurotransmitters instructing one phosphate molecule to break free from the other molecules in the ATP, leaving 2 behind. This causes a release of energy or a tiny cellular-level “explosion”, which is what allows your muscle to contract against the resistance. This happens millions of times during each contraction.
Creatine phosphate molecules act as a “donor” molecule to bond to the remaining one adenosine and two phosphate molecules to form a complete ATP molecule again, allowing continued muscular contraction for a further 6 – 18 seconds. Once all available ATP and Creatine Phosphate has been used, no further contraction may take place (muscle failure) until the body has rested for a few minutes to allow ATP to reform.
Creatine supplementation provides additional Creatine Phosphate molecules to be available for ATP support allowing for a few extra reps, or the same amount of reps with more weight. Creatine Monohydrate increases strength for weigh-training which results in additional micro-trauma within the muscle due to the increased weight being lifted, which in turn leads to adaptive muscle growth. In theory, you are stronger as soon as your creatine phosphate levels have increased, which is within a few days of taking creatine regularly as a supplement.
By using quality European produced creatine and ensuring that sufficient fluid is consumed, creatine can be used completely safely without any side effects.
