When creatine is absorbed it pulls water in with it, causing cells to swell. This ‘cell volumization’ is known to promote a cellular anabolic state associated with less protein breakdown and increased DNA synthesis.
Research shows that supplementation with creatine...
Helps preserve lean mass and strength while restricting calories
Increases the amount of glycogen your muscles can store
Reduces muscle damage and soreness from exercise
Helps build muscle and improve strength
Improves anaerobic endurance
Creatine Monohydrate is the most popular type of creatine. Without getting too technical, creatine is stored in the muscles and is used as a form of energy called phosphocreatine. Phosphocreatine is associated with power output in prolonged muscle use. When this is depleted within the muscle, muscle fatigue is triggered. Increased creatine uptake within the body has been proven to help increase phosphocreatine.
Creatine HCL works so well because adding the hydrochloride group to the creatine molucule lowers the pH of the creatine, making it more acidic. This drastically increases its solubility in fluids. It mixes almost instantly with no sedimentation and no particles. Any ingredients that have precipitated to the bottom of a cup are ingredients that will sit in your intestines and not be absorbed properly, causing stomach discomfort and diarrhea. Research has proven that Creatine HCL has been shown to be about 40 times more soluble in fluid than any other form.
Creatine Gluconate is a creatine molecule linked to a glucose molecule. When both molecules are combined, the result is a form of creatine that is absorbed almost like glucose, which means a large amount of the ingested creatine reaches the muscles, increasing its benefits.
Creatine Ethyl-ester is a form of creatine monohydrate that has been esterified with either the alcohol methanol (creatine methyl ester) or ethanol (creatine ethyl ester). After being absorbed by the body, creatine esters are split into creatine and the alcohol methanol or ethanol. This conversion occurs very quickly and, 10 minutes after oral administration, the ester is no longer detectable. Once the molecule has been broken down completely into creatine, creatinine, and methanol or ethanol, it should be able to penetrate the muscle cells better than any other type of creatine.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Add 3 level scoops [~48g] to 300ml of water. Ideal to use as Pre- Intra- or Post workout.
