Creatine Monohydrate (Micronized)
Supplements of creatine monohydrate are constantly being studied by nutritionists for their energy creation properties.
Creatine works by increasing the amount of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) produced by the body by giving up a phosphate ion. This takes place during exercise which creates a high demand for energy, triggering this process. Once this occurs, the newly created ATP drives muscle contraction and then goes on to produce even more protein. Since this reaction is reversible, this also allows the Adenosine Diphosphate (the original form of Adenosine Triphosphate before Creatine donates an ion to it) to create more Creatine in the form of Phosphocreatine, a type of Creatine which can be stored in the muscles for later use.

Creatine Monohydrate has been shown to help increase overall muscle mass as well as strength, as long as it is taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise. It also extends the time of the average workout by giving the body more energy to work out with.

This powder has no discernible smell or flavor and can be dissolved easily in water, juice, or shakes. It is best taken with a simple sugar solution, which rapidly increases the uptake of creatine to the muscle cells. Dextrose is the preferred simple sugar (carbohydrate), though some studies have also advocated the use of d-ribose in conjunction with creatine, as together they have been shown to increase muscular work capacity.
