NutraPlanet Creatine Monohydrate
It can be said that Creatine Monohydrate started a new dietary supplement revolution. Before Creatine, supplements seldom ever worked or worse, they were unhealthy or down right harmful to consume. Creatine changed all of that, and nearly 20 years later, it still packs a very powerful bang for your buck in all out effectiveness.
Creatine Monohydrate is a natural occurring substance, found in skeletal muscle tissue of virtually all living animals. It was first discovered in 1835 and was actually sold as a health food shortly thereafter in 1847 Germany!
Creatine, when either synthesized by the body or consumed through meats or supplementation, is readily absorbed through the small intestine and delivered by the bloodstream and stored in muscles where creatine begins to exert its many benefits. Creatine is stored in human body as a compound known as "phosphocreatine", which further works as a reservoir of phosphate. Phosphocreatine is a substance that stores energy in the muscular tissues and provides energy for the muscular contractions. Phosphate produced from creatine is needed for regenerating adenosine triphosphate (ATP) molecules, which is the main fuel for your body during high intensity situations like weightlifting or other sports.
During muscle contraction, ATP loses a phosphate molecule to create energy and gets converted to adenosine di phosphate (ADP). Now in order to produce more energy ADP must be converted back to ATP. Now when ATP is depleted, creatine acts as a source of phosphate and converts the ADP molecule to ATP molecule. The more creatine is available to the body, the faster the body can produce ATP molecules, so that more and more energy is available for the muscle contractions. This is how creatine acts as a great energy source for short bursts of exercise such as sprinting, bodybuilding and other athletic activities.
These increased amounts of creatine also slow the possibility of fatigue, aiding in the athletic performance of endurance athletes as well as sprinters or weightlifters.Â And what has ling been postulated has finally been proven in the lab: Creatine helps in the synthesis of protein, which further promotes muscle growth and development. So with creatine supplementation, we get larger, more powerful muscles that are able to handle a greater workload for a longer period of time. Sounds pretty good, huh! But is there any downside?
It was first though that creatine supplementation was simply producing excess water retention in the muscles, thereby allowing a temporary increase in muscle strength with the possibility of muscle cramping or dehydration occurring. However, it has clearly been shown that creatine does not induce dehydration or excess cramping. In fact, creatine is now the most widely studied dietary supplement of all time and its safety profile is described as being beyond repute.
Further demonstrating the safety profile of creatine, new research has begun to supplement the elderly, feeble and disease ridden with creatine in hopes of improving quality of life through increased muscle mass, anti-oxidant capability and nerve regeneration and improvement. So far, the research has been extremely promising.
If you were asked to create a perfect sports supplement, creatine monohydrate would be the blueprint. It has been proven in the real world for nearly two decades and more and more positive research keeps coming in regarding efficiency and safety. It is no wonder that it is the single most popular sports nutrient used today.

This stuff isn't even listed as "micronized" yet the particle size is SMALLER than the NOW "micronized" creatine mono I bought before at twice the price! That's awesome IMO, mixes well, cheap, can't beat that. I give it a TEN, a F@CKIN TEN!
