Creatine has long been used to increase muscle mass and strength. It’s made throughout the body and used in muscle tissue. When it reaches your muscles, it is used to regenerate ATP, a major energy source. Creatine Monohydrate has tons of studies proving performance benefits. Here is a list of a few of those benefits:
You will see various different forms of creatine available. Despite all of the hype surrounding creatine, nothing comes close to the clinically proven effectiveness of creatine monohydrate. It remains the "King of the Hill" in its ability to support significant boosts in muscle strength and power, as well as muscle growth.
- INCREASES STRENGTH & POWER*
- HELPS BUILD MUSCLE*
- BOOSTS ANAEROBIC ENDURANCE*
- HELPS REDUCE MUSCLE DAMAGE & SORENESS*
- UP TO 15% INCREASED MAXIMUM POWER & ENDURANCE*
- UP TO 20% INCREASED POWER DURING INTERVAL TRAINING*
- UP TO 30% GAIN IN POWER AND ENERGY RELEASE IN SHORT-SPRINT RANGE*
- UP TO 15% GAIN IN POWER FOR SPRINT REPETITIONS*
Taking protein pre-workout kickstarts protein synthesis during rather than after your training session. Pre-workout protein increases amino acid delivery and uptake by muscles during training.
A study published in Medicine and Science in Sports & Exercise found that consuming whey protein prior to working out increased calorie burning over the subsequent 24 hours.
We included beta-alanine because research says that it increases muscle carnosine levels to delay the onset of muscular fatigue during intense training sessions. Beta-alanine combats fatigue for greater endurance so you can train and work out harder.
L-Arginine has been shown to support athletic endurance and helps boost nitric oxide production. When your body takes in more arginine, more nitric oxide is produced. Nitric oxide widens your blood vessels and increases blood flow to deliver nutrients to your muscles faster. Your muscles will have no choice but to increase in size as your capacity also increases.
L-Arginine also supports muscle tissue repair and growth by helping to process the ammonia created by intense muscle activity and create glutamine. Recent research also shows that L-Arginine is a key signaling agent in activating muscle protein synthesis.
Citrulline Malate has been clinically suggested to support increased performance and lean mass gains, support increased blood flow and amino acid delivery to skeletal muscle, leading to increased protein synthesis (muscle growth), enhance ATP production and support cell volumization, and is a potent precursor to arginine.
Caffeine anhydrous is a pure, natural stimulant. Its effects are as highly acute and pronounced as they are vast. Caffein enhances focus, reduces fatigue, and significantly increase performance capacity. It also aids in improving cognition and alertness, antagonizing adenosine receptors, inhibiting phosphodiesterase (PDE), increasing epinephrine/norepinephrine/dopamine release, and enhancing intracellular sodium/potassium pump activity.
Cinnamon extract has been found to balance blood sugar which can be directly related to growth hormone production; increasing endurance and power during your lift.
High-intensity exercise produces excessive free radical formation leading to inflammation and injury in muscles, joints and tendons. The omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil are powerful anti-inflammatory agents that help to reduce the risk of injury from exercise
