Reflex Creatine Monohydrate
Creatine naturally occurs in the body; it is present in every human cell and functions as an energy store. Depending on body weight and muscle mass, the body stores between 100 and 150gms of Creatine, of which about 2 to 4 grams are used every day for normal activity. Half of the required Creatine is produced by the body itself, the rest must be obtained daily from food. For an optimal supply of Creatine, 500g of raw meat or raw fish must be consumed every day. Because this is hardly feasible in practice, supplementary Creatine is a sensible option.
Extensive studies have been carried out on Creatine and Creatine Monohydrate is universally recognized as offering the potential to increase maximal strength and endurance by up to 15% in speed sports as well as intensive weight training, even in the short term. Improvement can be as high as 20% for maximal strength in interval training; approximately 30% for power increase and energy release in short sprints and up to 15% in training for repeated sprints. Creatine intake also results in improved concentration, higher endurance in training and faster recovery.
Creatine Monohydrate is ideal for a broad range of sports people; from bodybuilders through to those who need explosive power in their chosen sport or those involved in speed sports.
