Creatine Monohydrate by APS is an advanced, scientifically researched athletic performance enhancer that serves three main purposes:
- Increase Power
- Enhance Strength
- Build Muscle
In fact, Creatine Monohydrate can help you in numerous other ways, since it has been proven to aid in anaerobic performance via the facilitation of phosphocreatine in the muscles. In addition, improved phosphocreatine levels in the muscle means better facilitation, production, and maintenance of the ATP (adenosine triphosphate) levels as well, which is considered one of the main sources of energy in the body.
THE BENEFITS OF CREATINE MONOHYDRATE
Scientifically speaking, here’s how Creatine Monohydrate can prove beneficial for your body:
Creatine Helps with High-Intensity Work
Creatine improves the body’s ability to perform high-intensity work, such as a long and strenuous session at the gym. Plus, this compound also plays a major role in facilitating quick and efficient muscle growth as well. Here’s how it works.
Creatine phosphate (a type of high-energy creatine stored within the cells) supplies the fast-twitch types of muscles (also known as 11b muscle fibres) with sufficient energy to prevent premature fatigue. This process improves the strength of muscular fibres and helps trainers to achieve more repetitions, run faster, or raise their athletic threshold regardless of the respective sports they partake in. In fact, supplementing with creatine allows the muscles to store more of this high-energy compound to surmount to greater results in regards to both muscle growth and strength.
Also, during this process, creatine is considered a high-energy phosphate with a very important role in the production of energy. In fact, whenever the body is in dire need of energy – a compound called ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is utilised as the primary energy source. Under very demanding physical conditions, ATP releases one of its phosphate groups in order to support muscular contraction. Once this happens, ATP transforms into ADP (adenosine diphosphate, a less potent form of ATP). Finally, creatine supplementation helps to regenerate ATP levels faster than usual and is considered a key player in additional ATP production and maintenance as well. Without creatine, high bursts of short-intensity exercise would simply not be possible to perform.
Creatine Enhances Physical Recovery
Recently, creatine has been extensively studied in regards to its post-exercise muscle recovery benefits. One such study from 2004 examined the effects of creatine supplementation on muscle cell recovery from damage in long-distance athletes (following a 30-kilometer race).
In particular, the study subjected 18 male athletes to 20 grams of creatine monohydrate on a daily basis for a period of five consecutive days. The results from the creatine group were later compared to a placebo (maltodextrin) group and included cell damage markers such as lactate dehydrogenase, creatine kinase, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and prostaglandin-E. The researchers found that each of these markers was significantly decreased after the race in the creatine group – while the placebo group showed no significant improvements in this area. Finally, study authors Santos et al concluded that creatine monohydrate supplementation prevents cell muscle damage after an intensive physical exertion. To this extent, creatine also supports recovery after a workout as well.
Creatine Improves Anaerobic Capacity
In a study by Ziegenfuss et al, ten male and female trainers were subjected to either creatine or placebo and were later assigned to thigh exercises and sprints. The dosage was as follows: the creatine group was subjected to 0.35 grams per kg of lean muscle mass, after which both groups (creatine and placebo) completed six sprints in a duration of ten seconds, with sixty seconds of recovery in-between cycles. This lasted for a period of three days.
Afterward, the scientists found bigger improvements in the creatine group as opposed to the placebo group. In particular, the subjects who received creatine supplementation experienced significant increases in thigh volume (6.6%), total body mass (0.9 kg), and increases in athletic performance during all six sprints as well. This speaks volumes about creatine’s ability to improve anaerobic capacity among trainers who are willing to take that next step.
Creatine Increases Lean Muscle Mass
Creatine has the property to increase lean muscle mass, popularly known as the muscle volumizing effect. In fact, creatine supplementation has been repeatedly shown to “puff” the muscle cells sort of speaking, which gives that rugged and swole look. And not only that, but creatine also has the ability to trigger muscle protein synthesis as well, which makes this supplement a sure pick among bodybuilders from all over the world.
Additionally, those who start with creatine supplementation usually experience up to six kilograms of added body mass in the first weeks of the program. This is excellent news for anyone looking to acquire rock-hard muscle quickly and efficiently.
Creatine Also Improves Methylation
Methylation is a special chemical process in the body that regulates gene expression, RNA metabolism, and protein synthesis – among other systemic markers. Creatine’s ergogenic effects provide a significant boost to this process, which results in more power, strength, focus, and stamina as well.
In fact, methylation is a process that is absolutely essential for the normal functioning of the body, and consequently life itself. This process is tightly linked to a molecule called SAM (S-Adenosyl Methionine), wherein the breakdown of SAM spells all kinds of bad news for the body’s metabolism and overall well-being.
Creatine regulates SAM, which in turn improves the effects of methylation on the whole metabolism full stop. This process alleviates some of the “burden” the kidneys and liver are being subjected to, and removes the body’s need to make creatine from amino acids.
