Benefits of Creatine Supplementation
Creatine supplementation provides an extensive list of well known benefits which include improving explosive bouts of exercise, decreasing myostatin levels, and increasing muscle mass without side effects when taken properly.*
Mix 5 grams of Creatine Micronized with water or juice either with a meal, post-workout, or pre-workout. Continue this use of Creatine on non-training days as well to maintain muscle saturation. Creatine levels will decline and return to normal after 30 days. Creatine supplementation is also important for the elderly to support lean mass and functional strength. Loading & Cycling: If you’re an athlete or advanced lifter who is interesting in loading creatine to increase your phosphate levels quickly, use 20 grams (4 servings) a day for the first 4-5 days. Discontinue use after 4 weeks, and repeat after at least 4 weeks of discontinued use. Creatines effectiveness plateaus after 4-5 weeks of continuous use.
If you are pregnant nursing, or taking any medications, consult your doctor before use. Discontinue use and consult your doctor if any adverse reactions occur. Keep out of reach of children.
There is a lot more to creatine than you may be aware of. If you've heard of myostatin, then you know that it is a protein in the body discovered in 1997 that is responsible for regulating muscle growth by inhibiting it. Based on genetics, there are myostatin levels that vary from person to person that can cause one person to be a world class bodybuilder and another a hard gainer. Creatine has also been used in hospital settings to help battle atrophy (muscle wasting) in patients.*
