£14.99

PBN Micronised Creatine Monohydrate is proven to be an effective supplement for building strength and increasing athletic performance as part of your overall fitness programme. Performance levels are boosted due to Creatine’s impact on energy supply and reducing fatigue by acting as a buffer from waste products within muscles.

Description

Creatine Monohydrate

Creatine plays an important role in improving athletic performance as it increases the stores of phosphocreatine during an intense workout. The extra phosphocreatine is then used for the creation of ATP, the primary form of energy required for carrying out several metabolic processes.

 

Besides providing muscle cells with energy, creatine helps to keep muscles hydrated by drawing water into them. Hydrating the muscles increases protein synthesis and makes the muscles look bigger and fuller.

 

Impact of Creatine Monohydrate on Muscle Growth:

 

Muscle growth is dependent on Creatine in both ways either short-term or long-term. A 12-week study has been conducted to examine the Creatine effect in weightlifters. The result shows 2 to 3 times more muscle fiber growth as compared to the exercise alone. 

 

Another study revealed the fact that the addition of creatine to a weight training program leads to a significant increase in muscle mass and leg strength. This was a 14-week study, conducted in older adults. 

 

Role of Creatine Monohydrate in Brain Functioning:

 

Plenty of ATP is required for the optimal functioning of the brain. Like muscles, the brain also stores phosphocreatine (5 percent). The intake of this supplement is also responsible for the improvement of many brain disorders like Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Epilepsy, Ischemic Stroke, Spinal Injuries, and Motor Neuron disorders. 

 

In one study, the intake of this supplement was found to improve memory by 50% and intelligence test scores by 20%. Older adults and the ones having reduced stores get to benefit from creatine while it does not affect the brain functioning of healthy adults.
