What does Jarrow Formulas 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.
Jarrow Formulas 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).

What is the relationship between religion and food?
In the past few weeks two different incidents made me stop and pause to think how much eating or not eating meat is starting to divide our society.
A vegan lifestyle, which once was a complete rarity in our country, seems to have become popular overnight among the hip and happening crowd.
This is in stark contrast with the general public, which is still very much in love with their steak and bacon.
A good example of that contrast was shown in the way the general public as well as vegans responded to the December edition of Allerhande, a popular supermarket magazine. People who like to celebrate Christmas in a traditional way, lamented the absence of classic meat-heavy recipes, while vegans rejoiced about the multitude of creative vegan recipes.
Because the complaints as well as the compliments were so vocal and heart-felt, it struck me how much veganism or refusal of it has almost become a religion of its own.
The loud complaints were nothing compared to the antisemitic vitriol that was spewn when the popular Palestinian vlogger Nas (Daily) decided to make an episode about Tel Aviv, the vegan capital of the world.
All this made me curious about the relation between religion and food laws and more specifically islamic and jewish food laws as well as to the reasons why even non-religious people get so worked up about food guidelines they are living by.
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.
