Product Notes:

Micronized Creatine Monohydrate Powder

Creatine is found naturally in our own bodies and in animal products (although this supplementary Creapure form is vegan), but our bodies only produce minimal amounts, so for optimizing physical performance, we are apt to need to supplement extra - especially if following a plant-based or vegan diet or lifestyle, since as there are no non-animal food sources containing creatine.

Creatine can help increase muscle mass and cell volume. Supplementation may improve energy, muscle pumps, and athletic performance. As nutritional support, creatine may also help support immune system and cognitive function.

Add Muscle - Boost Strength

If you are looking to add lean muscle mass and improve strength and power output in your workouts, creatine may be the supplement for you. Creatine binds high-energy phosphate groups in muscle tissue, to help reconstitute the ADP (adenosine diphosphate) molecules which yield the ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which serves as the energy supply for muscles, which gets depleted during bursts of activity.

Creatine can help increase lean body mass when used in conjunction with a resistance training regime, and improve strength and performance when doing repetitions of brief, highly-intense activities such as sprints, jumps, or resistance training by increasing intramuscular phosphocreatine levels.

Neuroprotective Properties

There is also research indicating creatine may have neuroprotective and cardioprotective modes of action, as well. Our brains use a lot of energy as well, and they require proper nutrition, sleep and rest, just like our muscles! When the brain is under suboptimal conditions like lack of sleep or poor nutrition, it doesn't perform as well. Emerging research is showing that creatine supplementation has an impact on the brain. Improved creatine levels in the brain have shown to improve certain cognitive markers in plant-based eaters and the elderly.

Creapure - Superior Absorption with Less Bloating

This particular type of creatine has been micronized (rendered it into tiny particles) for superior absorption and bioavailability. It is a proprietary form made by AlzChem in Germany which has stringent selection standards for the raw materials and uses a patented system of advanced technology to create the purest, most unadulterated form of creatine monohydrate in the market, which greatly reduces the chances of adverse effects such as bloating. All Creapure products will have a quality seal to ensure you that the product was made with highest quality and purity.
