Creatine Monohydrate - The Science Behind the Compound

Chances are, if you've ever been to a gym or picked up a protein powder, you've heard of creatine. Creatine is a compound that has been studied extensively for its ability to help support muscle growth, performance, and recovery. But what exactly is creatine and how does it work? Let's take a closer look.

Creatine is a compound that occurs naturally in the body, primarily in skeletal muscle. Creatine's function is to serve as a precursor to adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of chemical energy used by all cells.* ATP is necessary for fueling quick bursts of power and strength - something that is essential for both athletes and everyday people alike.* Although our bodies produce creatine naturally, we can also get it through our diet (primarily from meat and fish) or through supplementation.

Supplementing with creatine has been shown to help maintain existing muscle tissue, support the growth and development of lean mass,* and promote optimal performance during short bouts of intense exercise.* NOW® Creatine Monohydrate has no additives or preservatives and has been independently tested for purity and potency.

How Creatine Monohydrate Works

When we workout, our muscles use ATP for energy. However, our bodies can only produce a limited amount of ATP - which is why we feel fatigued after extended periods of exercise. Creatine works by supplying our muscles with additional ATP, which delays fatigue and allows us to workout at a higher intensity for longer periods of time.* In other words, creatine helps us to push our boundaries in the gym so that we can see better results from our efforts. In addition to helping with strength and power output, creatine has also been shown to help reduce exercise-related muscle damage.*
