Step 1: What is it?
Creatine is a compound derived from amino acids. Your muscles utilise creatine to produce energy during heavy lifting or quick bursts of intense activity.
Step 2: What does it do?
Creatine converts into a compound called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is the body’s main energy source for the phosphate energy system. The phosphate energy system is recruited when conducting short, sharp muscle contractions such as sprinting or lifting a heavy weight.
By increasing your bodies creatine levels through supplementation, you’re effectively improving the ability of your muscles to contract with more power and for more repetitions. Thereby, creatine can allow you to train harder, with heavier loads and more volume, which ultimately leads to muscle growth over time.
Step 3: How do I take it?
5g per day. The will allow for peak creatine saturation levels in approximately 2 weeks.
It doesn’t matter what time creatine is consumed. However, we recommend consuming it around the same time every day.
Every day - 5g. No need to cycle off.
