Long-term performance with Creapure®

Increased energy through creatine

Creatine plays a central role in the transport and storage of energy in every human body cell. In an adult's body, about 80 to 130 grams of this natural bodily substance are found. However, as the body daily digests and excretes about one to two percent of it, it is also necessary to replenish the stock of creatine regularly. As part can be synthesized by different organs, the rest must be absorbed through food. The following applies: creatine is contained in relevant quantities only in meat and fish, but not in vegetables or dairy products.

Creatine FAQ

 

Creatine in endurance sports

  • Recovery time supported
  • Buffers the pH value of the cell

Creatine has a special function in the supply of energy to the cells of the body, which becomes important above all with short-term, intensive and repetitive rapid loads. A performance-enhancing effect during a classic endurance performance of longer than 20 minutes is therefore not to be expected and cannot be proven in studies so far. However, there are reports of people who regularly take creatine and describe that they feel permanently fitter and more powerful. In addition, it is possible that creatine supports the regeneration process between the training units or after the athletic endurance performance. Thus, creatine has been shown to act as an antioxidant that reduces cell damage caused by oxygen radicals. Anti-inflammatory effects can also be detected in initial investigations.
There are indications that creatine acts as an antioxidant, by reducing cellular damage caused by oxygen radicals. Anti-inflammatory effects were also observed in the first cell-based experiment.
It remains necessary to examine to what extent the results of training and exercise for endurance sports lead to noticeable positive effects. In addition, creatine helps to stabilize cellular pH (acidity) and plays an important role in balancing the different aerobic and anaerobic energy sources (eg glycolysis) which are available to the cells.

 

Creatine as food supplement

  • Food supplements for vegetarians and vegans
  • Creatine in meat and fish
  • Positive effect on the body

Athletes with specific training goals, e.g. building up muscle mass or increasing strength through normal exercise or during rehabilitation, increased regeneration, higher performance levels during short force or sprint loading, can benefit from creatine supplements. However, people who do not eat well or who eat very little fish and meat can also benefit from taking a dietary supplement with creatine, because they are likely to have a lower creatine supply present in the body. This is especially true for vegetarians and vegans who consume little or no creatine through their regular diet.

 

Creatine increases physical activity levels

  • Creatine supports the supply of energy to the body
  • Endogenous substance

Studies show that creatine increases physical performance during high-speed exercise in the context of short-term intensive physical training if a daily intake of three grams is ensured. This promotes the build-up of muscle mass and increased strength. This health claim has been approved – as one of very few food supplements in the application of sports – also by the EU.
