Taking creatine, even in the short term, significantly improves maximal strength and endurance. Creatine intake also results in improved concentration, higher endurance in training and faster recovery. When it comes to the manufacture of creatine, no other brand combines the three pillars of quality -- careful selection of raw materials, patented high-performance technology and precise chemical analysis -- the way Creapure does. Creapure is the most effective creatine on the market today. Short term supplementation of creatine has been shown to significantly increase muscular performance. It may help athletes work out at a higher intensity during resistance exercise. A resulting greater training stimulus over time may result in enhanced physiologic adaptations. In the body, creatine helps to regenerate ADP (spent energy) back into ATP 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 certain foods. This Creatine is manufactured in Germany under U.S. Patent No. 5,719,319. This patented manufacturing process eliminates unwanted by-products often found in lesser quality creatine.
