Creatine Creapure® - 300g
- Ultra pure
- No additives
Phosphocreatine is an important energy source for the muscles during short intensive exercise. Long-term consumption of creatine increases (phospho-) creatine stores in the muscles. This can improve performance during short, all-out exercise, and especially when these sessions are performed in an interval fashion. So, ingesting creatine is sensible to boost performance in explosive sports. But, it is also worthwhile for endurance exercise and for interval sports with short successive bursts of sprints that are repeated with relatively little recovery time. Creatine has a direct effect on performance and enables the athlete to train more and/or harder. Moreover, it has been demonstrated that chronic creatine supplementation in combination with intensive strength training stimulates an increase in muscle strength and muscle mass. These positive effects of creatine on muscle mass and muscle strength are certainly meaningful during recovery and rehabilitation after a sports injury.
Few to no side effects have been reported from consuming creatine. However, on average chronic creatine use often leads to 1-2kg weight gain, but most of it is “water weight”. For some, it can be even more or even no weight gain at all. However, some athletes indicate that their mobility is reduced due to the increased muscle tone when using creatine. Finally, it is often suggested that creatine consumption can lead to muscle cramps, but to this day no scientific evidence exists to confirm this belief.
“6d CREATINE Creapure®” only consists of 100% ultra-pure Creapure® and is thus extremely suitable for athletes that want to increase their muscle strength, muscle mass, speed, and/or explosiveness. Athletes with a sports injury who want to speed up the rehabilitation process can also take advantage of “6d CREATINE Creapure®”.
The above mentioned positive effects will be achieved by consuming 3 g of creatine monohydrate each day.
Mix 3g (=1 scoop) of powder into ≥150ml of water daily during 8-12 consecutive weeks. For faster results, consume 18g (= 3x2 scoops) per day during the first 5-7 days. After using consecutively for 10-12 weeks, an interruption of 4-6 weeks is recommended.
Preferably, consume after exercise and/or in combination with a meal, snack or beverage high in carbohydrates and/or protein.
