Creatine Monohydrate 600g - creatine monohydrate powder | Power Supplements
What does Power Supplements Creatine Monohydrate do?
Creatine is synthesized in the liver and stored in the major muscles, including cardiac and skeletal tissues. Once inside the muscle cells, creatine is phosphorylated to form creatine phosphate (CP), which, as a high energy substrate for the universal energy molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP), assists in the contraction of the myofibrils (muscle fibers). Creatine Phosphate is utilized to maintain higher levels of ATP during exercise. Creatine Phosphate maximizes physical performance and reduces exercise fatigue by absorbing hydrogen ions released by muscles in the form of lactic acid. Intense anaerobic exercise, such as weight lifting and sprinting, depletes ATP and greatly increases the demand for creatine.
Creatine is also recommended to people with cardiovascular diseases.
Creatine Monohydrate is made in a GMP facility in Germany with the brand name CreaPure. Quality Assurance: Purity of product assured by High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC).
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

Can training with just weight machines make you stronger?
Whomever has been a member of a gym in the past 15 years, will have noticed how slowly but surely, machines have taken a back seat and more and more space is given to 3-dimensional weight equipment, like suspension (TRX-)trainers, gym balls, kettle bells and even fun stuff that was formerly unheard of like pole dances and climbing walls.
A very popular trend is the development of Cross-Fit in which both strength and endurance is equally valued and in which Olympic weightlifting exercises are also incorporated.
As someone who has dabbled both in Olympic and power lifting as well as endurance cycling, I've been very happy about this development even though I keep using machines myself too. Recently, Christian Finn, a coach who specialized in rehab training, pointed out how machines have a more important role than most of us realize. It's well worth sharing it in our blog, too.
Older and strongerIt's often thought that older adults must tolerate the strength and muscle loss that come with age. However not only can we fight the battle of strength and muscle loss as we age, we can even build muscle and strength well into our Golden Years.
Getting older doesn't mean giving up muscle strength. Not only can adults fight the battle of strength and muscle loss that comes with age, but the Golden Years can be a time to get stronger.
Resistance exercise is a great way to increase lean muscle tissue and strength capacity so that people can function more readily in daily life.
Through resistance training adults can improve their ability to stand up out of a chair walk across the floor, climb a flight of stairs -- anything that requires manipulating their own body mass through a full range of motions.
The most important factor in somebody's function is their strength capacity. No matter what age an individual is, they can experience significant strength improvement with progressive resistance exercise even into the eighth and ninth decades of life.
Creatine, the versatile sports supplement
Creatine is the sports supplement that is universally ignored by most people with the thought it is just meant for strength athletes.
But creatine is so much more than a supplement that helps athletes to increase strength. Creatine helps men and women reaching their physical maturity to keep their fitness and vitality.
