NOW Foods Sports Creatine Monohydrate Description
Creatine Monohydrate is a naturally occurring compound found in the human body and obtained in the diet primarily from meat and fish. Creatine is a popular supplement among active individuals because of its ability to serve an as energy reservoir, especially during intense physical exertion. During short, intense bursts of activity, the body breaks down adenosine triphosphate (ATP) into adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and phosphate for energy. Creatine helps the body convert ADP back to ATP, providing greater amounts of ATP for energy, which may increase in short term endurance and strength. Creatine can also be stored for later use by cells, creating the "energy reservoir" active individuals desire.
As a dietary supplement, take 6 capsules with fruit juice or other sweetened liquid 3 to 4 times daily, before and after exercise, for the first 7 days. Thereafter, for maintenance use consume 6 capsules 1 to 3 times daily. Allow 3 to 4 hours between doses. For continuous use beyond 28 days, use one serving (6 capsules) daily.
