What is Pure Advantage Creatine Monohydrate?
Pure Advantage Creatine Monohydrate - Creatine Monohydrate is a compound that is naturally made in our bodies to supply energy to our muscles. It is produced in the liver, pancreas and kidneys and is transported to the body’s muscle through the blood stream There is also evidence that Creatine can stimulate muscle growth.
Creatine Monohydrate is a compound that is naturally made in our bodies to supply energy to our muscles. Creatine is formed from the amino acids arginine, methione, and glycine through an involved chemical process. Creatine is manufactured in the liver and may also be produced in the pancreas and kidneys. It is transported in the blood and taken up by muscle cells, where it is converted to creatine phosphate, also called "phosphocreatine." This reaction involves the enzyme creatine kinase which helps bond creatine to a high-energy phosphate group. Once the creatine is bound to a phosphate group, it is permanently stored in a cell as phosphocreatine until it is used to produce chemical energy called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Once this is done, creatine can be released to spontaneously form creatinine, which is then removed from the blood via the kidneys and excreted in the urine. In order to increase athletic performance and boost lean body mass, creatine must be taken in concentrations which are not reasonably obtained from a whole food diet.
Although creatine’s role in the energy production process is its most notable trait, there is evidence that creatine can stimulate muscle growth. It does this in a couple of different ways. By allowing you to perform more work as a result of additional energy, increased protein synthesis is stimulated. Secondly, when an abundance of creatine phosphate is stored n the muscle, the muscle will hold more water in its cells and become what is known as “volumized” or “super-hydrated.” The more volumized a muscle is, it will promote the synthesis of protein as well as deter the breakdown of protein. Volumizing the muscle will also create an environment where an increased level of Glycogen synthesis will take place. Increased protein synthesis along with training will lead to muscle growth. There is also scientific evidence that shows supplementation with creatine causes muscle tears to repair themselves quicker.
