What is creatine? Creatine is an amino acid, which is formed in the liver, pancreas and kidneys of arginine, glycine and methionine. Also, the body gets creatine from food, in particular, from products of animal origin. The greatest amount of creatine is found in red meat.
Creatine is a source of energy for the muscles during training. Efficiency training decreases when there is very little creatine in the muscles. Muscles are being rapidly depleted, and you feel a burning sensation at first, and then a comprehensive fatigue. Also, creatine promotes protein synthesis, accelerates metabolism and increases the full body endurance.
Fact: Creatine was opened in 1832 in France. In 1926, scientists were able to prove that the using of creatine supplements helped to build muscle mass. The creatine supplement is considered to be completely safe.
The only possible side effect of creatine supplementation can be a pain in the stomach and indigestion. This effect suggests a weak liver function.
Creatine supplements are produced in the form of powder, capsules and tablets. Most often, athletes prefer creatine powder, since it has been cheap and efficient. You can choose the form of creatine depending on your budget. As practice shows, there is no difference in the effectiveness of the creatine powder and creatine pills supplements.
1. Growth muscle mass / strength;
2. The ability of the muscles to develop more energy;
3. Growth capacity (the ability to perform more sets / reps);
4. Weight gain;
5. Fast recovery after training;
Creatine monohydrate is one of the types of creatines, which is the most popular and effective. Creatine monohydrate helps to increase endurance, muscle mass and strength. Chemically is a form of creatine molecule and water. Creatine monohydrate is available in several forms: powder, tablets and capsules.
Micronized Creatine is a creatine monohydrate, which has very small molecules. Micronized structure contributes to a better absorption and reduces the unwanted bloating effect. It is better than monohydrate. Also, micronized creatine is more effective than monohydrate.
Creatine Phosphate is an organic compound with a phosphate group that provides a quick source of energy for muscle fibers to contract when they need an initial burst of energy.
Creatine Citrate is composed of molecules of creatine, which are attached to the molecule of citric acid. Creatine Citrate will give more muscle energy than pure creatine.
Creatine Ethyl Ester (CEE) is a more effective variant of the popular dietary supplement Creatine Monohydrate. As the Creatine Monohydrate has been attached to an ester salt it is generally easier for the body to absorb when it combined to alternative sources.
New form of creatine is called Kre-Alkalyn, or buffered creatine. Kre-Alkalyn is the only creatine monohydrate product with a pH of 12 because its molecules are synthesized with ‘buffering’.
Creatine Serum is basically dissolved in water, often with various vitamins and amino acids added. Creatine Serum is designed to work quickly by bypassing the need to be digested. The liquid creatine is absorbed into the bloodstream quickly and does not bind with food.
Effervescent Creatine is a tablet that dissolves quickly in water. Its advantages are as follows:
- It is better absorbed by the body;
- Contains a fast-acting elements;
- Does not cause heartburn.
