Creatine Monohydrate (400 g) | Strength / Recovery
Creatine Monohydrate is the most heavily researched and time-tested sports nutrition supplement in the world. Creatine can lead to a gain in lean muscle mass, improve workout performance, and significant enhancement in strength and power.
- Micronized Pharmaceutical Grade Creatine
- Improves Performance in Short-Burst, High Intensity Training
- Helps Increase Muscle Mass, Strength and Size
- The World’s Most Studied and Proven Supplement
Creatine Monohydrate also offers therapeutic benefits, including the prevention of ATP depletion, stimulation of protein synthesis and cell volumization. Creatine Monohydrate is the undisputed king of Creatine. Over 95% of all research ever conducted used Creatine Monohydrate. Other forms of Creatine have come and gone, all trying to make the claim that they have improved the original Creatine. The truth is that very few, if any, scientific studies are even being attempted to try to prove that they enhance performance in any way.
WHAT IS CREATINE?
Creatine is a nitrogenous compound that occurs naturally in the body and helps to supply energy to all cells in the body, primarily muscle cells. Creatine is a quickly available source of energy for muscle contractions used to enhance athletic performance. Creatine has been shown to increase maximal strength and endurance by as much as 15% and up to 30% in power output and energy release in short-burst/interval sports.
CREATINE CAN LEAD TO A GAIN IN LEAN MUSCLE MASS!
HOW DOES CREATINE WORK?
Inside the muscle, creatine bonds to a phosphate molecule to produce phosphocreatine, an important factor in the recycling of Adenoside TriPhosphate or ATP. Phosphocreatine donates a phosphate molecule to ADP to create ATP, the primary source of energy for muscle contraction, as well as other bodily functions. The increase in additional energy to the working muscles can lead to enhanced strength and power, improving overall workout performance and increase gains in lean muscle mass. Creatine not only helps the muscle endure long-lasting, more intense training sessions, it also helps to increase muscle recovery rate.
A quick look at the underlying physiology of reactive hyperemia, or “the pump” suggests that blood flow to the area is critical. Muscle fullness or cell volumization is directly linked to the growth of the muscle. Expand the cell, expand and grow the muscle. Intramuscular Creatine enhancement works to deliver better pumps and makes the muscle appear fuller.
During the fat loss phase of a training plan when you are typically lowering your carbohydrates while aiming for weight loss, supplementing with Creatine will help keep your performance levels high. By adding creatine to your daily supplementation you can help offset the fatigue of dieting and maintain higher levels of strength output and ultimately, muscle growth.
Creasyn is the new standard, created by ALLMAX. At the core of this new standard is an incredibly small Creatine particle size; 74 mircons. This is less than half the particle size of our previous creatine (Creapure) and most other Creatine sources currently on the market. Decreased particle size translates into greater solubility and absorption.
THE ALLMAX DIFFERENCE
ALLMAX Pharmaceutical Grade Creatine is the ultimate in purity and safety; rigorously held to strict standards that meet or exceed 3rd-Party independent testing for WADA Banned Substances and cGMP guidelines. In addition, our Creatine is micronized to an ultra-fine, free-flowing powder. Most Creatine powders on the market today have particles that are as much as 250% larger!
1. What is Creatine?
Creatine is a compound naturally found in the body, it is made by the combination of the amino acids Arginine, Glycine and Methionine. It supplies energy to the muscles and is produced in the liver, pancreas and kidneys. Creatine is involved in many different functions in the body. Its main roles are to provide energy for the muscles, enhance protein synthesis, act as a lactic acid buffer and increase cell volume. By supplementing with Micronized Creatine you can ensure these systems are as efficient as possible. You can derive creatine from food sources but as the amount is so small you would need to eat an excessive amount to get the same benefits as you would from supplementing.
2. How does Creatine work?
Inside the muscle creatine bonds to a phosphate molecule to produce phosphocreatine, an important factor in the recycling of ATP (Adenoside TriPhosphate). ATP is the primary source of energy for muscle contraction as well as other bodily functions. As ATP is used during muscle contractions, such as during exercise, phosphocreatine donates a phosphate molecule to ADP to create ATP. ATP can then be used to provide additional energy to the working muscles. The increase in creatine and phoshocreatine can lead to a gain in lean muscle mass, improves workout performance, enhances strength and power, and offers therapeutic benefits including the prevention of ATP depletion, stimulation or protein synthesis and cell volumization.
3. How do I take Micronized Creatine?
Take one teaspoon (5g) of Micronized Creatine Monohydrate after your workout dissolved in 240 mL (8 oz) of water or your favorite beverage.
4. Do I need to load Micronized Creatine?
For best results we suggest that you load Micronized Creatine for the first five days. Take two servings a day; one in the morning before breakfast and the second immediately following your workout. On the days that you don’t train take your first serving when you wake up and the second before you go to bed. After five days reduce your serving size to once a day, after your workouts.
5. What is micronized Creatine?
Micronized creatine is produced through a process that breaks down the creatine molecules into smaller particles. Micronized creatine dissolves exceptionally well in liquid as it is quickly absorbed in the digestion system.
6. Who can use Micronized Creatine?
Anyone who is looking to take their training to the next level can use Micronized Creatine. Depending on your goals, both men and women can benefit from this cutting-edge formula. However, if you’re not training consistently you won’t experience the same incredible results from Micronized Creatine.
7. Do I need to cycle Micronized Creatine?
Yes you should cycle your creatine. It has been found to work effectively if you use Micronized Creatine consistently for at least 8 weeks. Then take a 2 week break before starting your next cycle of Micronized Creatine.
8. Is Creatine a steroid?
No, creatine is not an anabolic steroid. It is a legal substance and naturally found in food sources.
9. Can I use other products with Micronized Creatine?
Absolutely! We actually suggest that you combine Micronized Creatine with other products to increase your strength and produce even greater muscle gains. IsoFlex protein powder works extremely well with Micronized Creatine. You can also combine Micronized Creatine with ALLMAX Nutrition R-ALA to further optimize insulin activity and increase nutrient delivery to your muscle cells.
10. If I’m taking prescription drugs can I still take Micronized Creatine?
If you’re taking any medications or prescription drugs you should always consult your health care provider before taking any supplements.
11. Should I still take Micronized Creatine on the days that I don’t train?
Yes, you should still take Micronized Creatine when you don’t train. For maximum effectiveness you should supplement with Micronized Creatine consistently even on the days that you don’t work out. On the days you don’t train take your serving of Micronized Creatine as soon as you get up in the morning on an empty stomach.
12. Is creatine safe?
Yes it is. It is produced naturally by our bodies and hundreds of long-term studies conducted on creatine have confirmed that it’s safe for consumption.
13. I’m a vegetarian can I use Micronized Creatine?
Yes you can.
One rounded teaspoon (5g) dissolved in 240ml of water or your favourite beverage. Drink after your workout.
