Creatine Monohydrate

Looking for a powerfulsupplement for your training sessions? If you are, get acquainted with creating monohydrate, the most popular creatine of the moment.

What is creatine monohydrate?

It is the most-studied food supplement to date and used by athletes all over the world.

It is created from the union of 3 amino acids: arginine, methionine and glycine. It is naturally present in our bodies, as well as in foods such as salmon, tuna, red meat and other fish and meats.

Our body produces around 2g of creatine per day, but a higher amount can be ingested through food and especially through dietary supplementation.

Each molecule of creatine monohydrate is composed of 88% creatine and 12% water.

Creatine monohydrate is a powdered food supplement identical to the endogenous creatine produced by your body. Intake helps to increase the amount of this substance in the body and leads to a number of benefits that are spread by word of mouth in the gym community.

It's available as a white, tasteless powder that is soluble in water. It's highly effective, and many athletes choose it for its unbeatable cost/benefit ratio.

Benefits of Creatine Monohydrate: What is it for?

The creatine monohydrate is, nearly universally, the food supplement of choice for athletes, together with whey protein and caffeine.

According to the position of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN): creatine supplementation is the most effective ergogenic food supplement currently available to athletes in terms of increasing high-intensity exercise capacity and lean mass during training (Kerksick et al., 2018).

In adults over 55 years of age, consumption in doses of 3 grams per day may increase the effect of weight training on muscle strength, provided that the training is carried out under certain conditions of intensity and frequency.

Creatine, in a 3g daily dose, increases sporting performance in successive bursts of exercise of short duration and high intensity.

Properties of creatine monohydrate

Properties of creatine monohydrate

One of the reasons for supplementing your diet with this product, and therefore buying creatine monohydrate, is to solve the limitation of ATP deposits in your body: they are very limited.

By making up for this deficiency, we can benefit from the properties it brings to the body:

  • It acts on the phosphocreatine energy substrate. This means that its mechanism of action will keep ATP stores saturated, and cellular energy will be available for immediate access in the event of a high-intensity energy demand.
  • After intense exertion, once your ATP stores are depleted, creatine phosphate "donates" phosphate groups to rapid ATP synthesis, making more ATP available to your body.
    Thanks to this mechanism, the maximum duration of effort can be extended by around 10 seconds.
  • Thanks to this mechanism, the maximum duration of effort can be extended to around 10 seconds. From this point on, it is necessary to wait for a certain amount of time to re-synthesise this ATP.

If we choose to maintain high phosphocreatine stores using creatine monohydrate, the time needed for this energy replenishment is shorter.

How is creatine monohydrate made?

The most common procedure to manufacture this type of creatine consists of:

Como funciona la creatina 1

The mixture of solutions of N-methylglycine (sarcosine) with a sodium chloride (salt) and cyanamide with aqueous ammonia.

Como funciona la creatina 2

Both solutions are mixed and, through an initial process of heating and pressurisation in a reactor, the creatine crystals come to light, which are isolated through a vacuum filtration process.

Como funciona la creatina 3

These microcrystals are purified and micronised to obtain a fine powder, which is the one you will receive, all under the strictest quality controls of HSN.

How to take creatine monohydrate

Creatine acts by cellular saturation, i.e. it's necessary to use it continuously, on a daily basis, and not to stop or cycle its intake.

Creatine monohydrate is recommended to be taken in many ways:

Where an athlete will use 0.3g of Creatine monohydrate x kg of body weight x day, for a period of 7 days, followed by 3g of creatine daily for 3-4 weeks and then a 2 week rest.

Where it is recommended to use 1g of Creatine monohydrate x every 10kg of body weight x day. Resulting in quantities of around 7-10g daily.

This is the modality that we recommend, in accordance with the specifications of the maximum amounts established as safe by the Spanish Food Safety Agency (AESAN).

It involves the use of a single, standard dose of 3 grams of creatine monohydrate per day, which is our recommendation from HSN.

The creatine loading phase is optional. However, if it is done, the benefits will come more immediately.

If you choose not to carry out the loading phase, the result obtained is identical after 4 weeks from the start of continuous use.

It goes without saying! Creatine monohydrate is suitable for both men and women, who can all equally enjoying its ergogenic benefits.

If you're looking for a supplement to help mitigate tiredness and fatigue, as well as increase your endurance, we recommend you try alkaline creatine.

Side effects of creatine monohydrate

Creatine can be said to be safe, as no test has shown any side effects from its consumption. A multitude of studies support the fact that, taken in adequate doses, it has no side effect.

And you can also dispel the myth that creatine is bad for the kidneys, because it's not true.

Creatine retains water, but at an intracellular not subcutaneous level, so it won't compromise aesthetic goals. It can lead to body weight gain, without influencing body fat gain

Based on this data, we can conclude that this supplement is one of the most popular in the field of sports nutrition. It can do a lot for you, and you're just one click away from trying the dietary supplement everyone's talking about at a great price.
