5g Creatine Monohydrate, Improves Strength & Power
Creatine helps regenerate energy quickly and efficiently by increasing your muscles creatine stores and optimizing your body’s phosophocreatine system. More stored creatine phosphate means more ATP – the muscles primary source of energy!
This translates into more power, stronger lifts and more energy for your workouts.
Creatine is the most clinically researched and effective sports supplement available.
Why Use Fuel Up Creatine?
Fuel-Up’s Creatine is an energy-boosting amino compound; it is found naturally in meat and fish, and made by the body. Creatine’s major function is to help replenish ATP – the primary source of energy that is required by the muscles to perform work. During exercise, ATP releases a phosphate to power muscle contraction, leaving ADP. Creatine phosphate, the stored form of creatine in the muscle donates a phosphate to help regenerate ATP. Supplementing with Creatine, helps increase the amount of available creatine phosphate in the muscles. More stored creatine phosphate means more ATP can be produced during exercise without interruption. Creatine essentially helps muscles push out more reps, and have more energy to power through workouts longer.
Benefits of Using Creatine:
Increases in Lean Muscle Mass – Creatine works on multiple levels of muscle building, promoting anabolic pathways that support growth, including suppression of muscle inhibiting myostatin, increasing muscle fiber size, stimulating protein synthesis, and decreasing protein oxidation or breakdown. On average, supplementing with the same amount of creatine available in Fuel-Up’s Creatine can lead to lean gains between 2 and 5 kg, after just 4 weeks of supplementation.
Increases Workout Performance – Supplementing with creatine increases creatine phosphate stores in the body, allowing for increased production of ATP or muscle energy during intense workouts, which would otherwise not be possible.
Creatine feeds ATP production to explosive fast twitch muscle fibers, allowing for greater muscle power and force production, which means heavier lifts, and more reps. But it also means improvements in sport performance, for high-power output exercise that involves enhanced speed and power.
Increases Muscle Cell Hydration – Creatine pulls water into muscle cells, causing cell swelling and increased cellular volume. This increase in muscle size positively influences the pathways of muscle growth including protein synthesis. Enhanced cell volume acts like a trigger to specific pathways of protein synthesis, indicating a need for increased muscle size. Increased cellular volume also enhances nutrient up-take by muscle cells, promoting a positive nitrogen balance, preserving lean muscle mass, and preventing muscle tissue breakdown.
Supports the Recovery Process – Creatine supplementation supports up-take and preservation of muscle glycogen, and helps maintain a positive nitrogen balance in muscle cells, reducing protein breakdown after exercise. Creatine has also been shown to influence important hormones involved in muscle growth and repair including anabolic testosterone and growth hormone.
Best taken with your pre or post workout shake.
Add half a scoop (5g) to 100ml of water, mix and consume. For best results, pre-load with 5g five times a day for the first week of use, then take once per day on training and non-training days.
