CREATINE MONOHYDRATE POWDER AUSTRALIA
WHAT IS CREATINE?
Creatine is a naturally occurring molecule within our bodies. Our liver and to a lesser extent, the pancreas and kidneys, can produce creatine using the amino acids glycine and arginine. We also obtain creatine from foods we eat including red meat and seafood. In fact, the word creatine comes from the Greek work for flesh, Kreas. Creatine molecules act as storage units for high energy phosphate groups which are essential to energy production and storage.
WHAT IS CREATINE MONOHYDRATE?
Creatine monohydrate is the most effective form of creatine, and is the form of creatine used in powdered supplements.
HOW DOES CREATINE WORK?
Creatine molecules act as storage units for high energy phosphate groups which are essential to energy production and storage within our body. Our body uses the energy carrier ATP to generate energy. When this happens, ATP changes into ADP. Creatine then gives its high energy phosphate groups to ADP, turning it back into ATP so the energy cycle continues. Creatine increases the rate at which our body can regenerate ATP and use its energy, and this is very important during intense exercise.
WHAT DOES CREATINE DO?
As a both health and sports supplement, creatine is one of the most well researched and evidence backed supplements. In simple terms creatine increases the rate at which energy can be produced and used within our body. Creatine helps you work harder and work longer by helping to replenish our energy systems. This increases peak power output, and this in turn has and this has several positive impacts on sports performance and body composition.
Creatine helps people gain strength and build muscle. It increases strength and endurance.
The sports benefits of creatine are related to the increase in power output that creatine produces. Studies have demonstrated increased strength and power, sprint performance and improved performance in repeated maximal effort exercise.
Creatine increases strength – Creatine as a measurable impact on power output and the volume of weight lifted in a session. Over time, this increases the rate at which strength is increased.
Creatine builds muscle – When used in conjunction with a resistance training program, creatine facilitates hypertrophy and builds lean muscle. This effect results from an increase in weight and volume lifted during training due to creatine supplementation.
Creatine increases endurance and reduces fatigue – Creatine can improve endurance during high-intensity strength training. Creatine results in a slower decline in explosive strength such as jumping. Creatine also has a small but important impact on sprinting / anaerobic running performance.
Creatine improves recovery by reducing inflammation resulting from high intensity or prolonged endurance exercise.
Creatine provides cognitive benefits – In particularly stressful times such as if you’re not getting enough sleep, if you are studying or doing exams (or other strenuous mental gymnastics!) or have experienced a brain injury, taking creatine may improve your mental capacity and performance.
