NVS Labs creatine monohydrate is pharmaceutical grade and ultra-micronized for maximum bio-availability and effectiveness. Creatine is a precursor to the bio-energetic fuel creatine phosphate, which replenishes cellular ATP (adenosine triphosphate) levels during maximum intensity contractions. Supplementing with creatine can increase levels of creatine phosphate in the muscle improving work output capacity, power, recovery and muscle hydration. When muscles are hydrated, muscle catabolism (breakdown) is minimized. Volumize muscle size improving strength and power. Dramatically boost endurance & improve athletic performance. Quickly replenish ATP for peak power output. Maximize your body's production of energy. Buffers lactic acid for added reps & more intense workouts. No cramping or upset stomach. Grade pharmaceutical Purity 99.9%+ purity (HPLC) Taste tasteless Solubility mixes well. 13 g/L (20C) Characteristics ultra micronized no cramping or bloating 200 mesh particle size Appearance white crystalline powder Odor none pH 7.7 Classification sports, ATP Synonyms N-Amidinosarcosine Molecular Formula C4H9N3O2H2O Creatine monohydrate is the most popular and effective bodybuilding supplement on the market today because of its ability to give fast gains in muscle size and strength. But don't be fooled, not all creatine is the same quality, which is why not all creatine brands will give you the same results. Our creatine is ultra-micronized to make it more bio-available and to prevent bloating and stomach cramping. Our creatine is HPLC certified 100% pure.

We guaranty well get it to you faster and fresher than any other company can and we guarantee youll get the results you expect! Creatine Boosts Muscle Strength, Strength and Endurance: Creatine is one of the most researched and important sports supplements today. It has become a must for athletes wanting to increase workout intensity while delaying the onset of fatigue. Research has shown that supplementing with creatine can boost muscle size, strength and endurance, improve athletic performance, and speed muscle recovery. Saturating your muscles with creatine improves your body's ability to quickly replenish and recycle ATP, which increases muscle energy and delays muscle fatigue. Studies show that when athletes supplement with creatine while weight training, they can quickly gain lean body mass and strength. Creatine may Act as a Lactic Acid Buffer Improve Exercise Recovery Time: Lactic acid is a bi-product from anaerobic (without oxygen) exercise, such as weight training. Lactic acid is responsible for the 'burning' sensation when the muscle becomes fatigued. When you cannot train anymore, it is due to you either having run out of energy or a build up of lactic acid. Creatine may act as a buffer for this lactic acid, which helps to delay the onset of fatigue. Creatine Stimulates Protein Synthesis: It has been demonstrated that creatine may also promote muscle growth by stimulating protein synthesis in two ways. Firstly, from the increased work you are able to do as a result of its energy replenishing actions. Secondly is that the more creatine phosphate (CP) that is stored in muscle, the more water is drawn into muscle making it fuller and stronger. With more CP and water in muscle, the volume increases, and the muscle cell is volumized or 'super-hydrated'. A volumized muscle helps to trigger protein synthesis, minimize protein breakdown and increase glycogen synthesis (Haussinger 1996; 1996). If a muscle is then trained properly, this could lead to enhanced muscle growth. The muscle 'pump' experienced when using creatine is reported to be much more intense, and this is as a result of the cell volumizing effect. Recommended Use: Daily dose: As a dietary supplement, mix 1 serving (5 grams) with water or your favorite beverage. For best results consume 1 serving 30-45 minutes prior to exercise and 1 serving immediately after exercise. A third serving can be taken later in the day. Non Training Days: Take 1 serving with first meal of the day, take second serving with a meal at least 6 hours later. Loading Phase: Mix 1 serving with water or your favorite beverage four to five times daily for first five days of use. Separate doses at least 2 hours apart. Loading is not necessary but the time to muscle saturation will be 2-3 weeks faster. For best results: The product contains creatine so consume adequate water when using. A s a general guideline consume at least an extra 16 ounces of water daily for each serving. Warning: NOT INTENDED FOR USE BY PERSONS UNDER THE AGE OF 18. KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
