Creatine is a natural substance that increases the length of time energy is available to the muscle, giving it more strength and efficiency. BodyStrong Creatine is 100 percent pure and micronized, and, quite simply, will give you a bigger, stronger pump.
Creatine supplementation has been shown to significantly increase muscular performance by supplying energy to muscles, supporting maximum strength output, fueling anaerobic endurance, improving concentration and reducing recovery time. Synthesized from three amino acids (arginine, glycine and methionine), creatine also minimizes protein breakdown and enhances the growth of muscle fibers by super-hydrating muscle cells with water. This super-hydration allows enhanced protein uptake by muscle cells and greater nitrogen retention, resulting in increased muscular hypertrophy (growth) and recovery.
For athletes such as basketball and football players, sprinters, gymnasts and others, creatine supplementation can significantly increase dynamic strength output, energy output, strength gains and support faster recovery times. Creatine monohydrate allows the body to recycle ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is essentially the muscle's energy currency. This action allows the muscle to contract forcibly, giving you short-term muscle explosiveness and maximum strength output. It is not as effective for endurance exercise like long-distance running or swimming.
Weight lifters commonly report a “pump sensation” when supplementing their diets with creatine. This is due to water saturating the muscle cells, making them visibly enlarged. When performing high-rep bodybuilding exercises such as bicep curls or tricep extensions, the combination of creatine-filled muscle cells and increased blood flow can produce some insanely powerful pumps.
Because it is micronized, BodyStrong Creatine mixes effortlessly in any liquid, including water. It's creatine monohydrate divided really small, increasing the surface area up to 20 times. This makes for faster absorption and reduces stomach comfort. You'll get all the benefits of the most effective type of creatine without the bloat!
Take creatine before your workout to increase immediate strength. Focus your workout on activities that last no more than 90 seconds for creatine to work effectively. You should also take creatine after your workout because it will absorb better, letting you recover faster.
BodyStrong's micronized creatine monohydrate is 100 percent natural and safe to be taken by most healthy people. To ensure ultimate purity, BodyStrong Creatine is produced according to pharmaceutical manufacturing standards.

Creatine Description from BodyStrong
Creatine is a natural substance that is synthesized in the body from three amino acids, arginine, glycine and methionine. Creatine supplementation has been shown to significantly increase muscular performance by supplying energy to muscles. In addition to regenerating ATP (adenosine triphosphate), muscle's ultimate energy source, creatine also minimizes protein breakdown and enhances the growth of muscle fibers by super-hydrating muscle cells with water. Creatine intake also results in improved concentration, higher endurance in training and faster recovery.
BodyStrong's Micronized Creatine is produced using cGMP pharmaceutical manufacturing processes to provide you with the ultimate in purity, quality and effectiveness.
