Creatine Monohydrate is a naturally occurring compound found in the human body which can be obtained in the diet, primarily from meat and fish. It's a popular supplement among active individuals because of its ability to serve as an energy reservoir, especially during intense physical exertion.

Product Notes:

During short, intense bursts of activity, the body breaks down ATP (adenosine triphosphate) into adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and phosphate for energy; creatine helps convert the ADP back to ATP, resulting in greater amounts of ATP available for energy, which may increase short term endurance and strength. Creatine can also be stored for later use by cells, creating the "energy reservoir" active individuals desire.

Creatine supplements are generally recommended for use before a workout (as an energizer) and after a workout (for muscle recovery). But supplementation is not just for serious athletes, as it's a natural organic acid produced in the body and stored in skeletal muscle. Its many important benefits include: promoting lean muscle mass; energizing muscles to function at optimal levels; replacing lost potassium from perspiration; improving recovery (post-exercise muscle inflammation) from resistance training or injury; possibly improving respiration; and potentially helping increase muscle energy and strength for neuromuscular disorders.

Moreover, as we age, creatine levels produced in the body tend to decrease, and that can result in decreased energy and muscle mobility. Creatine supplementation may also improve brain function in older adults.
