CREATINE

PRODUCT CATEGORY:

Pre-Workout, Post-Workout

SERIES:

Core

CREATINE SUMMARY:

Musclepharm’s core series creatine is the ultimate blend of five different types of creatine. This creatine blend increases creatine status by enhancing uptake into the muscles while promoting stamina, strength and lean muscle growth.

CREATINE BENEFITS:
  • 5 superior creatine blends
  • Increases strength, power, and endurance
  • Supports lean muscle growth
  • Pharmaceutical quality with no additives
  • Absorbs rapidly
  • No loading required
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM TAKING CREATINE:

Those who want the proven and safe benefits of creatine supplementation that include improved strength, power, and increases in lean mass

KEY INGREDIENTS/PROPRIETARY BLENDS IN CREATINE:

Creatine Monohydrate:

Creatine monohydrate is the purest form of creatine and serves as an immediate reserve for energy (ATP) during exercise.  It also supports an increased training capacity and muscle mass.[1-12]

CreNitrate:

CreNitrate is the most water soluble form of creatine which maximizes absorption.  The included nitrates increase blood flow (vasodilation) to working muscles.[1-12]

Creatine AAB:

This form of creatine assists with muscle building (protein synthesis) and lessens muscle damage from training.[1-12]

DiCreatine Malate:

DiCreatine malate is highly soluble and promotes energy (ATP) production.[1-12]

Creatine MagnaPower:

Creatine MagnaPower maximizes creatine storage and uptake into muscle tissue.[1-12]

Cinnulin PF:

Cinnulin PF supports healthy blood sugar (glucose) and blood pressure levels.[13]

PRODUCT USAGE:

As a dietary supplement, mix one scoop (5g) in 8 oz. juice,water, or your protein drink of choice daily. Drink immediately. To maximize results, drink 8 to 10 glasses (8 oz.) of water once daily. A loading phase is not required or recommended with this product.
