WHAT IS CREATINE AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Creatine Phosphate is a high energy compound that is synthesized in the liver and plays a vital role in the synthesis of ATP aka the production of energy. There are 3 significant energy pathways that result in the production of energy; The Creatine Phosphate system, Anaerobic Glycolysis, and Aerobic system. The creatine phosphate system produces energy during the first 10 seconds of exercise, making it a significant component of strength and power exercises. Thereafter, the anaerobic and aerobic systems come into play; however we will not dive into this area.
Recent studies have demonstrated that taking creatine orally; can increase phosphocreatine levels within the muscle fibres. By increasing the levels of phosphocreatine available to muscle, you can increase the levels of ATP, Rush, Tullson, and Terjung (1998). This allows skeletal muscle to maintain a high level of explosive power during short duration high intensity exercise, Balsom et.al. (1995). Not only were phosphocreatine levels increased, but Balsom et.al. (1995) also found that lactic acid levels were reduced with creatine supplementation. Because of this it has been suggested that oral creatine supplementation speeds up the breakdown of phosphocreatine, thereby accelerating the production of ATP.
Standard creatine has know been formed into micronized creatine. This new form of creatine contains 20 times smaller particles than standard creatine. What this results in is a more digestible and easily absorbed form of creatine. The better absorption rates means that there is less chance of stomach discomfort, and a better quality and more efficient product.
Micronised Creatine Monohydrate has been consistently shown to increase both strength and muscle mass. Micronized Creatine’s smaller particle size means quicker digestion and faster utilization.
