For Extreme Strength Enhancement
Creatine is produced by the body (from arginine, glycine, and methionine) and is supplied normally by ingestion of animal products. In the past 15 years or so there has been a plethora of scientific evidence to substantiate the use of creatine monohydrate as a muscle, strength, and power bolstering supplement. To this day, data continues to be published showing the many mechanisms by which creatine exhibits it's potent physiological and biochemical actions. In fact, evidence now shows that the increased protein synthesis and skeletal muscle hypertrophy occurs as a result of its ability to create an osmotic gradient whereby water is shunted into muscle cells making them "swell" (a potent stimulus for anabolism). Recent data has shown that creatine supplementation augments the release of anabolic hormones like insulin growth factor 1 (IGF-1), thus evoking prolonged anabolic drive. As well, creatine increases phosphocreatine in muscle that is utilized to make more ATP, and as a result enables longer and more intense training sessions. When choosing a creatine product, make sure you read the label to make sure it contains 100% German creatine in a clinically active dosage. ProSource Creatine contains 100% CreaPure creatine monohydrate, recognized universally as the world's finest.
