Creapure® in high-performance sport
Creatine is a bodily substance formed in the livers and kidneys from the amino acids glycine, arginine and methionine. Creatine and creatine phosphate play an important role in the supply of energy to the body. Since the 1990s, many athletes and scientists have found creatine in the form of creatine monohydrate to be the most effective dietary supplement for improving and increasing exercise levels, muscle strength, and fat-free body mass. Athletes across many disciplines – including cycling, sprinting, swimming and soccer – have taken creatine over many years with excellent results.
Creatine is classified as a so-called A category supplement by various sports organizations such as the Australian Institute of Sport, the Swiss Olympic board and the Swiss Sports Nutrition Society. This means that the performance-enhancing effect of creatine intake is recognized and supported in certain situations.
