    Product description

    WHAT IS CREATINE?
    Creatine is an interesting molecule that is synthesized in the liver from three amino acids - arginine, methionine and glycine. 95-98% of creatine is stored in the major skeletal muscles of the body while lesser amounts are found in the heart, brain and testes.

    Once creatine enters the muscle, it is phosphorylated to form creatine phosphate, which is a high-energy substrate that assists in the contraction of the muscle fibers.

    Fast-dissolving and highly bioavailable, Premier Creatine powder delivers reliable, effective results. Premier Creatine offers the following health benefits:

    • Enhances oxygen utilization in the brain, supporting cognitive health.*

    • Supports maintenance of cognitive function in aging populations and vegetarians.*

    • Facilitates optimal oxygen utilization in muscle tissues during high-intensity exercise.*

    • Supports muscular strength and enhances exercise performance.*

     

    SPARK YOUR MUSCLE’S ATP RESERVES
    During exercise, creatine is used by the body to maintain adequate levels of energy-rich ATP. ATP (adenine triphosphate) is your body’s premier source of energy for many metabolic processes. Athletes who seek to achieve optimal performance during high intensity exercise will often load creatine as a nutritional supplement to spark their ATP levels. Many types of exercise, such as weight lifting and sprinting, can challenge ATP stores. Thus, taking additional creatine as a supplement can help promote physical performance and also delay exercise fatigue by boosting the skeletal muscle’s ATP reserves. When muscles use ATP for energy, a chemical process takes place where the ATP is broken down into two simple chemicals, ADP (adenosine diphosphate) and phosphate. As ATP is converted into ADP, energy is released that gives muscles their ability to contract and perform well. The majority of creatine released in muscles binds with phosphorus which is then is converted into creatine phosphate. Next, creatine phosphate reacts with ADP in your body and then converts ADP back to ATP again. This process continually supports your body’s ATP energy supplies for muscle energy.

    MUSCLE STRENGTH AND ENERGY

    Did you ever exercise so hard that you felt a muscle “burn”? During intense training, when lactic acid levels can rise higher in muscles, you may feel a burning sensation in the muscles. Research shows that creatine can help buffer lactic acid that builds up in muscles during exercise. To help control the buildup of lactic acid and the burning sensations that can be created, creatine helps absorb and bind hydrogen ions that have been released into muscles.

    Creatine also promotes the body’s anabolic phase for increased protein synthesis which supports lean body mass and muscle strength. Taking creatine supplements before and after workouts may help support muscle energy levels because it enables the ATP energy cycle to continue for longer periods of time.

     

    BUILDING AND MAINTAINING MUSCLE MASS

    ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) Synthesis: Creatine monohydrate increases the availability of creatine phosphate (phosphocreatine) in muscle cells. Phosphocreatine donates a phosphate group to ADP (adenosine diphosphate) to regenerate ATP, providing a quick energy source for muscle contractions during high-intensity, short-duration activities.
    Enhanced Energy Availability: By maintaining higher ATP levels, muscles can sustain high-intensity efforts for extended periods, enhancing performance and delaying fatigue.
    Cellular Hydration

    Osmotic Effect: Creatine draws water into muscle cells, increasing cell volume. This osmotic effect helps in muscle hydration and triggers anabolic signaling pathways that help promote muscle growth.

    Increased Cell Volume: Enhanced cell volume promotes protein synthesis and muscle hypertrophy, contributing to muscle growth over time.
    Protein Synthesis

    mTOR Pathway Activation: Creatine supplementation activates the mTOR (mechanistic target of rapamycin) pathway, which is crucial for muscle protein synthesis and promotes the growth and repair of muscle tissues.
    Satellite Cell Activity: Creatine increases the activity and proliferation of satellite cells involved in muscle repair and growth. These cells help regenerate muscle fibers damaged during intense exercise.
    Reduced Muscle Damage and Inflammation

    Antioxidant Properties: Creatine has antioxidant properties that help reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in muscle cells, supporting quicker recovery and less muscle damage after intense workouts.

    BRAIN HEALTH AND COGNITIVE SUPPORT

    ATP Production in Brain Cells

    Constant ATP Requirement: The brain requires a continuous and substantial amount of ATP for various functions, including synaptic transmission and maintenance of ion gradients. Creatine enhances the brain's phosphocreatine stores, ensuring a rapid resynthesis of ATP during high-demand situations such as intense mental tasks.
    Neurotransmitter Support: Adequate ATP levels support the release of neurotransmitters, essential for proper brain function and communication between neurons.

    NEUROPROTECTIVE EFFECTS

    Oxidative Stress Reduction: Creatine's antioxidant properties help protect brain cells from oxidative stress, reducing cellular damage that can lead to cognitive decline and neurodegenerative diseases.
    Mitochondrial Support: Creatine supports mitochondrial function and health, which is vital for energy production and overall brain health.
    Cognitive Performance Enhancement

    Enhanced Cognitive Performance: Creatine supplementation may improve cognitive performance, particularly in tasks requiring short-term memory and quick thinking. This is especially beneficial during sleep deprivation or mental fatigue, where creatine helps maintain cognitive function.
    Sustained Cognitive Performance: Creatine may help sustain cognitive performance during extended periods of mental exertion by boosting ATP availability.
