Creatine, which occurs naturally in the body, plays a crucial role in the body’s energy metabolism. If energy is needed, ATP (adenosine triphosphate = energy currency of the cell) is converted to ADP (adenosine diphosphate). Eventually, the body turns ADP back into ATP using energy derived from food, but this takes time, and muscle cells can store only enough ATP to allow a few seconds of high-intensity work. Therefore, creatine supplementation is substantial to ensure high levels of phosphocreatine.
Everybody needs creatine every day
Adults have around 80–130 g of creatine in their bodies. Every day about 1–2 % of this creatine is broken down and excreted, so it has to be replenished. The human body naturally produces some creatine. Intake of significant amounts of creatine from food is only possible by eating meat and meat products. However, cooking and food preparation can result in creatine loss in food. Given your daily requirement of creatine, consumption of meat and synthesis of creatine by your own body may only provide maintenance levels of creatine. The body’s need for creatine to maximize your creatine levels may be significantly greater and that is why a Creapure® creatine supplement may be right for you.
How much do I need?
Take 3–5 grams of Creapure® creatine monohydrate daily to replace what your body uses every day and increase creatine availability. You can personalize the rate within the range provided based on your size, muscle mass and activity level. Creapure® can be used at any time of day, but you may benefit from taking the product immediately after exercise or in the morning.
Creatine isn’t just for Bodybuilders and Fitness Athletes. It is the perfect supplement for all sports that require repeated bursts of maximum power – such as Soccer, Basketball, Football, Baseball, Hockey, Swimming, Track and Field, and many more. To consistently perform at your highest level, you need a sufficient amount of creatine in your body.
As we age, we can also benefit from taking Creapure®. In combination with moderate resistance training, Creapure® helps to stop the age-related loss of muscle mass, strength and improves mental activity.
Did you know several scientific studies indicate that creatine has even more beneficial effects, which have been shown in the following categories: Brain function, sleep (better quality of sleep and decreased sleep demand), antioxidative property, bone health. Want to learn more about the applications of creatine in health and disease? The “Creatine in Health” Scientific Advisory Board for AlzChem Group AG – Creapure®, the Exercise and Sport Nutrition Laboratory at Texas A&M, and the Dynamical Business & Science Society – DBSS International invite to the International Conference on Creatine in Health and Disease throughout the Lifetime.
This conference is bringing the world’s creatine researchers to accelerate the awareness about the role of creatine supplementation for health and clinical diseases. We welcome all the healthcare, exercise, nutrition, and wellness professionals, young researchers, business delegates, and students from all over the world to attend. Obtain continuing education units (CEUs) and continuing medical education (CMEs) credits for your participation in this conference.
