Meet the purest creatine available in the market. Creapure® is a patented form of Creatine Monohydrate made by AlzChem in Germany and is widely regarded as the highest quality creatine available.
Creatine is a natural substance synthesized by the body (from the amino acids L-arginine, L-glycine and L-methionine). It is found in high concentrations in several body tissues including skeletal muscle, heart and brain cells and is used to produce energy.
As Creapure® creatine is made from the finest quality ingredients, it has a lower conversion to creatinine, the break-down waste product of creatine (*1). This means Creapure supplements offer a better value for money than other forms of creatine.
Is creatine loading phase necessary?
A typical loading phase would consist of a 5 day period consuming 20 grams of creatine divided in 4servings throughout the day. Those 5 days would then be followed by a maintenance period of 5 g of creatine per day.
The purpose of the maintenance period is to guarantee muscle creatine stores remain elevated after the loading phase. Although creatine loading is not compulsory,it seems to be the most effective way of elevating muscle creatine content(*2).
Should women take creatine?
Generally speaking, women tend to have more difficulties in getting slimmer and toning up their muscles compared to men. This may be disheartening, and many women may want to quit physical exercise and give up trying to follow a balanced diet.
As creatine increases energy levels (*3) and helps build muscle (*4), it can be extremely helpful to women. Women taking creatine can exercise for longer and therefore burn fat faster (*5). Your motivation will increase as well as your self-esteem.
