As the training intensity goes high, the requirement for energy increases. Creatine monohydrate, one of the most eminent supplements in the world of bodybuilding ensures the rise in energy levels that is needed.
The benefits of choosing ON Micronized Creatine Monohydrate Powder are as follows:
- Get the purest creatine source: A serving (5 g) of ON Micronized creatine provides 5 g of pure 100% creatine. The creatine in this supplement is found in the form of Creapure which is the purest and most potent form of creatine. The high bioavailability of creatine in this supplement ensures that the body is able to utilize it to the maximum. In addition to this, micronized creatine is broken down into smaller particles, which provides better miscibility and better digestion.
- Better production of energy: The primary function of creatine in the human body is to produce more ATP or energy units. Regular workout leads to consumption of more ATP by the body and creates constant requirement for these lost reserves. ON Micronized Creatine Monohydrate helps improve the phosphocreatine levels in the muscles which improves ATP production at the cellular level. As a result, the person feels more energetic while working out and is able to withstand long hours of high intensity training.
- Boosts muscle synthesis: There are many pathways in the body that promote muscle synthesis. With ON Micronized Creatine Monohydrate, these pathways are boosted to improve the production of new muscle fiber and this in turn results in a bulky physique. Research also shows that the production of myostatin (a type of molecule which may retard muscle growth) is reduced with Creatine intake. With reduced levels of this molecule, muscle building is enhanced further. ON Creatine Monohydrate also increases the level of growth hormone in the body, which again emphasizes a bulkier look. Creatine also helps the muscles absorb water to make them look fuller and bigger.
- Improves brain function: ATP is utilized by the brain in order to trigger different functions. With increased creatine intake, the production of ATP also increases. This helps the brain to function better and also speeds up response. Studies suggest that creatine tends to improve the dopamine levels in the body which again enhances brain function. Research also shows that memory and recall ability may be increased within just two weeks of consistent consumption of creatine.
When to Use
It is recommended to consume ON Creatine Monohydrate just before workout in order to get a good boost of energy and to endure long training hours. It can also be consumed immediately after workout, in order to refill the body’s reserves of ATP. This keeps you refreshed even after long hours of training.
On non-training days, there is no specific time to consume creatine supplements. However, for best results, they may be consumed along with the meals.
