Creatine Supplements at our Columbus OH store -
creatine phosphate is made from three amino acids: arginine, methionine and glycine
Creatineís main action in the body is storing high-energy phosphate groups in the form of phosphocreatine. During periods of stress, phosphocreatine releases energy to aid cellular function. This is what causes strength increases after creatine supplementation.
Creatine is a molecule that is produced in the body, where it exists additionally in the form of creatine phosphate. Creatine is also found in foods, mostly meat, eggs and fish.
Side effects of creatine include stomach cramping, which can occur if creatine monhydrate is supplemented with insufficient water, and diarrhea, if too much creatine is supplemented at once. Creatine monohydrate almost always causes water retention at higher 'loading' doses (sometimes exceeding five pounds).
Creatine HCL (hydrochloride), Kre- Alkaline, and some other refined creatines are effective at lower doses and do not cause water retention.
The main benefit of creatine is increased muscular endurance (maybe 8 reps instead of 7) due to the stored phosphocreating giving up phosphate for the ATP cycle (AdenosineTriPhospahate) which powers your muscles and many body functions.
