Creapure is a form of creatine monohydrate and is widely considered to be the purest and finest quality creatine monohydrate on the market today. Made by AlzChem in Germany it undergoes a slightly different manufacturing process to make it 'purer', which is one of the reasons it's the preferred creatine for many professional strength, speed, and power athletes.
As a molecule, creatine is an amino acid (broken down protein) derived compound produced in the body that serves as the primary fuel source (ATP) for short duration, high-intensity activities such as sprinting and weight lifting. Creatine is stored primarily in muscle tissue, and it is used for rephosphorylating ADP into ATP. This means that when our muscles use up our energy stores, creatine helps to replenish those stores in a fairly rapid manner. Approximately 2 grams of creatine are found in individuals that do not supplement and maintain a diet including animal based proteins. Those who do supplement can increase their body’s internal creatine pool by 10 to 40% depending on diet and total lean muscle mass.
As an adult dietary supplement, take one serving (5.55g) in 8 ounces of water immediately post-workout. A second serving may be consumed depending on activity level.
