Creatine Capsules

Creatine is naturally produced in the human body from amino acids L-arginine, glycine, and L-methionine primarily in the kidney and liver and transported in the blood to help supply energy to all cells in the body. Creatine is metabolized into phosphocreatine, an important storage form used by the brain, heart, and skeletal muscles. In normal healthy individuals, muscle creatine is replenished at a rate of approximately two grams a day. Oral ingestion of creatine has been shown to suppress the body's natural production, an effect that has been shown to be reversed upon ceasing supplementation.

Creatine exerts various effects upon entering the muscle. It is these effects that elicit improvements in exercise performance and may be responsible for the improvements of muscle function and energy metabolism seen under certain conditions. Several mechanisms have been proposed to explain the increased exercise performance seen after creatine intake:

  1. Optimizing energy metabolism by maintaining higher levels of the body's energy compound adenosine triphosphate or
  2. Increasing myofibrillar mRNA content and protein synthesis, and reducing amino acid oxidation and protein break-down.
  3. Increasing satellite cell and myonuclei number and activity in human skeletal muscle.
  4. Preventing tissue damage by stabilizing cellular membranes and maintaining reserves of ATP.

Interestingly, creatine may have the ability to modulate inflammation, at least after exercise. One study found that “creatine supplementation reduced cell damage and eased inflammation after an exhaustive race.”

Clinical trials have demonstrated creatine as having positive effects on strength and body composition and improving muscular performance in older adults, especially when combined with a resistance-training exercise protocol. Fourteen weeks of resistance training, done three days per week, resulted in significant increases in all measurements of strength and functional tasks and muscle fiber area for both the creatine and placebo groups. However, the group getting the creatine resulted in significantly greater increases in fat-free mass, greater increase in isometric knee extension, greater gains in isometric dorsiflexion strength, as well as a significant increase in intramuscular creatine levels.

One particularly interesting study found that the positive effects of creatine on strength and lean tissue in older adults continued after they stopped using creatine; at least for the duration of the study. The scientists concluded that "withdrawal from creatine had no effect on the rate of strength, endurance, and loss of lean tissue mass with twelve weeks of reduced-volume training."

The addition of creatine supplementation to an active lifestyle can provide added benefit to the health of the brain. One study found that creatine was very effective at reducing damage to brain tissue after injury. The researchers found that " … administration of creatine ameliorated the extent of cortical damage by as much as 36% in mice and 50% in rats. Protection seems to be related to creatine-induced maintenance of mitochondrial bioenergetics."

Creatine monohydrate has become popular with athletes, but it may also be beneficial for people who are nutritionally deficient, have conditions associated with low cellular energy, muscle weakness, and those concerned with the muscular integrity of the heart.

Each creatine capsule supplies 500 mg of easily-absorbed creatine monohydrate.

Taxes Kidney/bladder

Gave to my teenage son. After consuming daily for 2 to 3 weeks, my teenage son complained that he experienced the need to urinate frequently which he never experience before. I immediately stopped this supplement, and things got back to normal. I concluded that this supplement may be bad for the kidney/bladder.

Increased my strength and stamina for yoga practice

Within days of starting on this product I noticed that my strength increased considerably during yoga class. I was able to perform Chaturanga without over-stressing my elbows and shoulders - amazing! Creatine is also a nootropic and particularly helpful for vegetarians, who are pretty much guaranteed to be deficient in it if not supplementing.

I don't know why more creatine doesn't come in capsules. Amazingly convenient.

Does what it says on the tin

Have been taking these for sometime as a microdose, 1 tablet daily. Noticeable extra energy through both work day and in exercise.

ちょっと疲れたなと思ったら2カプセル飲みます。 翌日には疲労感が軽減されているので手放せないサプリメント! そこら辺に売っている栄養剤よりかは断然効果があると思います。

아직 먹기전이지만 기대해 봅니다.

効果はわかりません 抜け毛が増えました

集中力を上げたくて試してみました。顕著に変化は感じられませんが、ぼんやりする時間が少し減ったかな?くらいの効果です。最近気が付いた負の効果を追記します。抜け毛がひどく色々調べてみたら成分や時期が当てはまるのはこのサプリではないかと…。 残念ですが、服用を辞めてしまいました。

Posted by on November 05 2018

まだ使い始めたばかりで、まだわかりません。効果が現れるのが楽しみです。 飲みやすいと思います。続けて飲んでみようと思います。

以前利用してた物より たくさん入ってて良かったです。コレからわ こちらを使用していきます。

クレアチンというと、ボディービルダーの必需品というイメージがありますが、実はそれだけではありません。クレアチンは脳、心臓、骨格筋に多く含まれている栄養素。ある研究ではクレアチンが、怪我の後の脳細胞へのダメージを減らすことに非常に効果的であることを発見しました。 逆にクレアチンが不足すると、脳はエネルギーを作り出すことが困難になります。わたしは、子どもの頃から頭を使うと、その後ぐったりしてしまうことが多かったのですが、クレアチンと出会ってからは、脳の持久力が上がったことを実感しています。 飲んでから1ヶ月くらいで、効果を実感し、その後、継続して飲むことが大事です。やめると、脳のクレアチンが減るのか、あっという間にもとの疲れやすい脳に戻ってしまいます。たぶん、わたしは脳で使うエネルギーにクレアチンの生産が追いついていないのだと思います。本当に欠かせないサプリの一つです。また、記憶力や学習能力の向上、過集中時の胸の痛みなどにも効果を感じています。 わたしは、他にも約10種類のサプリを常飲しています。わたしのレビューが参考になれば、うれしく思います。(この文章はコピペではありません。この文章が掲載されているブログの著者が実際にレビューしています。)

В составе коктейля для митохондрий

Даю ребенку в составе коктейля для митохондрий. Пока явных супер-результатов от креатина не заметила, но и ничего негативного тоже нет, если соблюдать дозировку. Была небольшая гиперактивность, увеличение тонуса, на максимальной дозировке, немного уменьшила и всё нормализовалось. Поэтому, думаю, что своё дело креатин делает.

Никаких изменений

Что пьешь, что не пьешь, ничего не происходит.
