Hi-Tech’s Creatine Monohydrate provides you the potential for lean, hard, dry muscle gains never seen before in a creatine product.
Research has shown that Creatine Monohydrate may help athletes train at higher intensity during resistance exercise. Once creatine reaches the muscles, it’s converted into Phosphocreatine (creatine phosphate) and ultimately becomes the body’s primary energy source, Adenosine Triphosphate, better known as ATP. In the body, creatine helps to regenerate ADP (spent energy) back into ATP (fuel for energy) for increased energy output involving short intense bursts of energy. Creatine is a natural substance that is synthesized in the body from three amino acids, Arginine, Glycine and Methionine. It’s also found naturally in smaller amounts within certain foods such as cow’s milk, certain types of fish such as salmon, cod and herring but most notably in beef, with higher concentrations in grass fed versus grain fed.
Creatine participates in the complex muscle contraction process to maximize muscle energy. Specifically, ATP is a key fuel for muscle contraction, the high-energy repetition exercises you perform in all weight-training varieties. The more ATP you make available to your muscles during a training session, the more energy boosts performance in aerobic energy demanding sports.
Monohydrate is the most common creatine supplement in the fitness market and the most scientifically studied. It usually comes in at a pretty inexpensive price point compared to other types of creatine, which include Nitrate, Ethyl Ester and HCL. Each has its advantages and disadvantages, but all still provide very similar functions in the body. Monohydrate again has the most scientific literature supporting its abilities and is the easiest to find and often the least expensive.
Hi-Tech provides a creatine that is unmatched in water solubility to help ensure better absorption of any creatine supplementation with a HPLC Verified 99.5% pure potency Creatine Monohydrate. It mixes easily in any fluid without the need for a blender. Colorless, odorless and instantaneous mixing makes adding creatine to any drink easy. You will have more clean and usable energy than ever imagined possible from a supplement with any creatine, but most importantly, can help you find that extra rep, complete one more set and demolish any previous strength, endurance or personal bests.
Hi-Tech’s Creatine Monohydrate provides you the potential for lean, hard, dry muscle gains never seen before in a creatine product. Creatine Monohydrate also supports outstanding gains in muscle strength, stamina and fullness. No matter which type of creatine you choose, Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals has formulated a product that works for every type of athlete and for every budget.
Although Creatine’s role in the energy production process is its most notable trait, there is evidence that Creatine can stimulate muscle growth. It does this a couple of different ways. By allowing you to perform more work as a result of additional energy the all-important component to any growth in strength or muscle, an increase in protein synthesis, is stimulated. Secondly, when an abundance of creatine phosphate is stored in the muscle, the muscle will hold more water in its cells and become what is known as “volumized” or “super-hydrated.” The more volumized a muscle is, the more it will promote the synthesis of protein as well as deter the breakdown of protein, which is often the case with heavy or voluminous training. Volumizing the muscle will also create an environment where an increased level of Glycogen Synthesis will take place. Research shows that increased protein synthesis along with adequate training will lead to muscle growth. There is also scientific evidence that shows supplementation with creatine causes muscle injuries to repair themselves quicker.
Creatine provides muscular support for people of all ages and activity levels. In fact, creatine use is widespread among professional and amateur athletes. Research suggests that Creatine helps promote exercise and athletic performance and supports recovery from high-intensity exercise. Creatine is especially good during short-term, high-intensity exercise. Creatine can help muscles recover after high-intensity exercise.
