What is Creatine?
Creatine is a combination of 3 amino acids: arginine, glycine and methionine. You can find small amounts of creatine in certain foods, like red meat.
What Are the Benefits of Creatine Supplementation?
Supplementing with creatine has been shown to help build muscle, boost strength, enhance performance, and speed recovery.
How Does Creatine Work?
Creatine helps regenerate energy. Specifically, creatine replenishes adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the cell's primary energy source used to fuel tasks (e.g. muscle contractions). Let's take a closer look at this process.
When you lift heavy weights or when you perform in high intensity, explosive exercises, your muscle cells have a limited supply of ATP (about 3-10 seconds worth) and, therefore, must continuously replenish stores. Enter creatine.
When creatine enters the cell, it combines with a phosphate molecule from ATP to become creatine phosphate (CP). Interestingly, CP donates a phosphate to replenish ATP. So, let's put that into perspective.
You see, when you supplement with creatine, you're essentially stockpiling energy resources to help replenish ATP. With higher ATP levels, you'll be able to train harder and recover faster – allowing you to do more work in less time!
What Makes Platinum 100% Creatine Better Than Other Creatine Capsules?
Our product provides a research dosage of creatine per day. This specific dose has been shown in several studies to augment strength in the gym. So, if you’re looking to jack up your bench and/or squat – Platinum 100% Creatine is right for you!
Plus, Platinum 100% Creatine contains only Creapure® creatine monohydrate. This highly, and regularly, tested ingredient is manufactured using a patented process that arguably provides the “cleanest” creatine available.
