Creatine Monohydrate is highly researched and has shown to support muscle strength, power and size when combined with high intensity exercise or sport. It is the purest, safest and most effective form of fast-absorbing creatine with performance enhancing effects to replenish your energy levels allowing you to lift heavier, run further faster & improve physical performance.
To prepare one serving, add on spoonful (approx. 5g) of Creatine Monohydrate to a glass full of 250- 350 ml of cold water or fruit juice, mixing it thoroughly. The best time to consume it is:
30 minutes before workout to boost the body’s phosphate supply. 30 minutes is enough for the body to absorb the creatine effectively.
Till 60 minutes after the workout to keep the body’s phosphate supply at the optimum levels. This helps creatine draw water into the muscles so they look more voluminous.
Whenever we digest carbohydrates, our pancreas secretes a hormone known as insulin. If Creatine is taken with fast burning carbs, it will increase the absorption rate in the muscles. Therefore it is best suited to use a sugar spike like this with a post workout meal.
Amino acids are the building blocks of our muscles. Creatine is an outstanding supplement, but if a choice has to be made between getting protein or Creatine daily, you should opt for protein.
Protein is a food product. Creatine is not of much use without a significant protein intake. It is recommended that the proper consumption of both would provide the best results.
According to Creapure, one of the most respected manufacturers of creatine monohydrate in Germany, large doses of caffeine may hamper the performance results while taking creatine. However, smaller doses of caffeine such as coffee and most pre-workout powders should be ok
Creatine does not contain any allergic content. Creatine is not a hormone. Therefore it does not have the side effects associated with any pro-hormone or any illegal steroid.
