The weight training session requires the body to produce enormous amounts of energy to power the workout sessions. ATP or Adenosine Triphosphate is the primary energy molecule that generates the energy needed by the body during the workout session. The production of ATP molecules in the body is facilitated by amino acid Creatine that is produced in the body by the liver, kidney, and lungs. Creatine is stored in the skeletal muscles in the form of Phosphocreatine. The body, in spite of needing vast amounts of ATP for the generation of energy, can only store ATP enough for eight seconds of a vigorous resistance training session. The production of ATP also requires that the body absorbs the Protein source and synthesize it effectively, which is achieved by the presence of water and HCL present in the body and stomach, respectively. Therefore, the supply of Creatine to the body through the dietary intake on a soluble form ensures that the body absorbs the Protein and synthesize it for energy generation instantly.
To ensure that the body is supplied with ample amounts of Creatine to boost the energy levels, and easily soluble Creatine supplement can be a wise choice.
Creatine Ethyl Ester Hcl: Creatine bonded with an Easter group and Hydrochloride. Enables fast absorption of Creatine in the body, including the fatty acid molecules. The more the amount of Creatine stored in the body, the more the energy levels.
Creatine Malate: Creatine monohydrate combined with Malic acid improves the solubility of Creatine. As a result, it is absorbed quickly. It also enhances the rate of ATP molecule generation.
Creatine HCL: Ensures fast absorption in the stomach, generates energy by forming phosphate bonds. Creatine is the natural body energy source.
Creatine Pyruvate: Creatine bonded with Pyruvic acid enables uniform levels of ATP generation during metabolism. It ensures that energy levels are at a constant high throughout the weight training session.
Creatine Nitrate: Creatine bonded with molecules of Nitric oxide. It enables the current generation of ATP molecules to negate the harmful effects of oxidation. It fights muscle fatigue and builds endurance.
Creatine Citrate: Creatine bonded with other water-soluble molecules, to enable faster and effective absorption of Creatine in the body.
Creatine Anhydrous: Creatine without any water molecule. It is pure Creatine for fast absorption, storage, and energy generation.
Creatine Orotate: Creatine bonded with Orotic acid. It ensures the process of ATP generation is efficient in the cell and helps to utilize the ATP molecules generated to the maximum. Ensuring high energy levels.
Creatine Gluconate: Creatine bonded with Glucose molecule for transportation of Creatine in the bloodstream and into the muscles. It enables effective assimilation, synthesis, and ATP production. It improves brain function and keeps the cell hydrated.
Micronized Creatine Monohydrate: The Creatine molecules are further broken down to enable faster absorption and smooth metabolism. It also ensures the purity of Creatine is the highest.
Q: Is it a pre-workout or a post-workout supplement?
A: It is a pre-workout supplement.
Q: How to use it?
A: A single scoop can be used with 8-10 oz of water, half an hour before or after training sessions.
Q. Can it be stacked with other supplements?
