Creatine has been shown to enhance strength, improve muscular endurance, speed recovery time and reduce muscle fatigue and soreness. It also offers other benefits including cell volumization and hydration. Cellular hydration is necessary for promoting muscle growth and development.
Creatine is a natural substance that is required for all muscular contractions. It is synthesized in the liver, pancreas and kidneys from three amino acids: Glycine, Arginine and Methionine. More than 90% of the body’s creatine is stored in muscle tissue (in the form of Creatine Phosphate [Phosphocreatine]) where it is used to help create energy at the cellular level.
The energy for a muscle to contract is provided by ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). During the energy producing cycle, a phosphate is used up and ATP becomes ADP(Adenosine Diphosphate). In order to allow the energy cycle to continue, creatine “donates” its phosphate so that ADP becomes ATP and the energy cycle repeats. By supplementing with Creatine Impact, your body’s muscles have an increased supply of creatine available and therefore a substantially higher regeneration of ATP will occur allowing an athlete to train for a longer period of time before muscular fatigue sets in.
Creatine boosts performance
Fundamentally it’s a nitrogenous organic acid that occurs naturally in your body. It leads to greater ATP creation in the body, which translates into greater amounts of energy available under strain. For example, an athlete who could squeeze out 8 reps on a given weight without creatine could feasibly expect to get 9 or 10 reps out of the same weight. As long as other things are optimized, it would lead to extra size and strength gains. Anyone looking to perform better at a sport in which high levels of exertion are required, or anyone aiming to gain muscle mass and strength.
