Vitacost Creatine Powder Creapure® Description
Promotes muscle development and energy.*
What is creatine?
Creatine is a non-essential amino acid that is an important source of chemical energy for muscle contraction.* Dietary sources include meat, fish, and other animal products, but creatine may also be formed in the liver, kidney and pancreas from the amino acids glycine, arginine and methionine.
Once creatine reaches the muscles, it’s converted into phosphocreatine (creatine phosphate), and ultimately becomes the body’s primary energy source—adenosine triphosphate (ATP).* Muscle concentrations of creatine are lower in older and middle-aged adults and may explain why they respond so noticeably to creatine.
