BodyFirst® Creatine Monohydrate has been designed to up the performance bar of individuals. Creatine monohydrate is a well-studied and highly researched supplement that has shown to provide an array of benefits to exercising individuals.
Creatine is produced in the body in the liver, kidneys and to a lesser extent in the pancreas at about 1 g per day. In the body, majority of the creatine is in two forms: 60% in the phosphorylated form and 40% in the free form. When glycine, arginine and methionine come together along with the necessary enzymes, creatine is produced. Creatine is also got through diet, mainly from non-vegetarian sources. So the body does have a basic supply of creatine. However, to gain maximum benefits from creatine, reach full potential of creatine stores and maintain a supply to replenish used reserves, supplementation of accurate dosages is preferred.
Creatine taken as a supplement goes inside the cell through a specific transporter. Creatine binds with phosphate to form creatine phosphate. When energy is required by a muscle for contraction during exercise, creatine phosphate donates the phosphate molecule to adenosine diphosphate to form adenosine triphosphate (the energy currency of the cell).
