Creatine is a natural energy source that is used in muscle and nerve tissue. Creatine is stored as Creatine phosphate (phosphocreatine) in muscle cells. This phosphocreatine is the important factor that forms ATP (Adenosine Tri phosphate), one of the body’s quick energy molecules.
Creatine replaces the ATP that has been used up during muscle contraction to allow prolonged intense activity. Creatine Monohydrate supplementation increases phosphocreatine levels in the muscle, especially when accompanied by exercise or carbohydrate intake, therefore forming an effective energy transfer system across cells. It may increase muscle gain and lean body mass. People who are involved in intense physical activity or limit their intake of animal products may be well advised to include HealthAid Creatine Monohydrate powder in their diet. This may help increase the muscle stores of Creatine and can be beneficial if short-term rise in force is needed such as weight lifting or sprinting.
