BALANCE MICRONISED CREATINE MONOHYDRATE

$39.95 $68.95

Creatine Monohydrate provides the key to improved muscle strength and power through its role in the formation of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) the body’s essential source of cellular energy. ATP is vital for instant and sustained energy. A depletion of muscular Creatine can lead to reduced muscle power and rapid onset of fatigue.

Studies show Creatine supplementation increases total muscle creatine stores. Therefore supplementing with Balance Creatine Monohydrate can help maximise energy production and improve overall performance.

Precautions / Contra-indications

Since the original work done on Creatine supplementation at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, there have been many studies confirming its safety, when used in the recommended dosage levels.

Few side effects have been reported but they include; upset stomach, muscle cramping, diarrhoea and dehydration. Drinking plenty of water when taking Creatine can minimize most of these side effects.

Creatine has no effect on hormone levels.

Abuse of Creatine: Any Creatine not used by the body is excreted as Creatinine, a waste product. Doses above 20g daily should not be exceeded long-term since the additional Creatinine may affect your liver and kidneys. Always drink plenty of water while taking creatine.

On November 12, 1999 at the 19th Annual Southwest American College of Sports Medicine Meeting, two studies were presented from the Exercise & Sport Nutrition Lab at the University of Memphis:

Both studies showed that athletes taking an average of 5g of Creatine monohydrate daily for 9 months had no negative effects on markers of renal function or muscle and liver enzymes, compared to athletes not taking Creatine.


Mode of Action

Endogenously, Creatine is biosynthesised in the liver from three amino acids - Arginine, Glycine and Methionine. This creatine, or the type taken as a supplement, is then phosphorylated to form Creatine Phosphate, (CP) the essential ingredient in the ATP shuttle that converts ADP to ATP, and then back to ADP with the release of the immediate energy needed for quick burst activity such as lifting a weight or sprinting.

Other actions include:

Ø Muscle volumisation: Creatine increases the water content thereby increasing their size.

  • Buffer Lactic Acid build-up: New research has shown that Creatine by bonding with a hydrogen ion helps to delay the build-up of lactic acid, derived from incomplete metabolism of glycogen in the muscle.
  • Enhances Protein Synthesis: Creatine assists anabolism creating an environment where protein synthesis can occur.


    Indications

  • Improves energy levels, strength and endurance.
  • Promotes increases in muscle size.
