STRENGTH ™ - 100% Pure Creatine (CREAPURE®)
Creatine is as Important to Human Life as Protein, Carbohydrates, Fat, Vitamins and Minerals.
What is Creatine?
How does it work?
When the muscle cell needs energy, each ATP molecule releases one phosphate group. This process provides the energy needed by the muscle. Now you are left with ADP, or (adenosine diphosphate), which has only “Two Phosphate Groups”. For ADP to be used as energy it has to be converted back into ATP. This is where creatine comes in. Phosphocreatine (the body’s usable form of Creatine) delivers a phosphate group to ADP resynthesizing it back into an ATP molecule, thus making it ready again to release energy to fuel continued muscle contractions.
Why Use Creatine Supplementation?
The richest sources of Creatine in food are meats and fish. But, to increase athletic performance and increase lean body mass, Creatine must be taken in amounts that would be difficult to obtain from a normal diet. For example, you would have to eat approximately six pounds of steak every day to get the average dosage of Creatine. That would be 5000 calories just from the steak! Supplementing gives you the Creatine without the unnecessary calories that would most likely turn into body fat.
