CREATINE MONOHYDRATE
Creatine Monohydrate from Formulated Sciences provides only Pure Creatine Monohydrate (100% Pure Pfanstiehl - HPLC tested). Intense anaerobic exercise, such as weight lifting and sprinting, deplete the body's stores of ATP (Adenosine Triphospate), and greatly increase the demand for creatine. Supplementing with Creatine Monohydrate enhances the body's ability to produce and store higher amounts of ATP, especially in fast-twitch muscle fibers (Type II). Creatine Monohydrate also stimulates mitochondrial resyntheses of phosphocreatine when stores are depleted after exercise.

Creatine, a natural by-product of the liver, kidneys and pancreas, is normally synthesized from the amino acids Arginine and Glycine for storage in the major skeletal muscles (including the heart). After oral administration, creatine is absorbed in skeletal muscle fibers where it is converted into Creatine Phosphate, a high energy substrate that assists in the contraction of myofibrils (muscle fibers). Creatine Monohydrate is structurally more stable than the Creatine Phosphate form and is preferred for oral ingestion and absorption.

Creatine Monohydrate can have a cell volumizing effect on muscles, increasing cellular water content, an effect vital to protein synthesis and flexibility. By changing the volume of the cell you also effect the rate of glycogen synthesis which has a direct metabolic effect. For maxiumum results it is important to drink plenty of fluids to keep hydrated.

Creatine Monohydrate:

  1. Increases work capacity in muscle, especially type II muscle fibers.
  2. Increases muscle stores of creatine for short term energy
  3. Is a source of super-fast energy.
  4. Reduces exercise fatigue.
  5. Absorbs hydrogen ians that dissociate from lactic acid, reducing muclse "burn".
  6. Increases muscle cell volume by increasing water
  7. Increases glycogen re-synthesis
  8. May have other health benefits in people with compromised energy production
  9. Optimal loading dosage is 5 grams 4 times per day; athletes over 225 lbs. (102 kg) 5-6 times per day
  10. Maintenance dosage is 5 grams 1-3 times per day; over 225 lbs. 2 times/ day
