Description: 250g KR10 Pure Creatine supplement. | | Creatine appeared on the supplement market in the early 90s and it has created unprecedented numbers of scientific studies, as well as being used by many thousands of athletes and generating much media coverage. | | Science in Sport have been at the forefront of creatine supplementation since the early 1990s and their KR10 brand has been proven in many scientific studies and been used effectively by athletes and sports people at all levels of competition. | | We only use pharmaceutical grade, European manufactured creatine that is then packed in our own drug free facility, and does not contravene any IOC regulations. Our creatine is synthesized de novo from vegetarian ingredients and is therefore suitable for vegetarians. Science in Sport warranty that their products are free of contamination by banned substances. | | As a natural constituent of a normal diet, creatine supplementation should be considered by anyone serious about their sport. Muscle foods such as steak and sushi are often quoted as being high in creatine. However, vegetarian sources do exist, juniper berries being a particularly good example. Creatine is found in high concentrations in human muscle where it plays an important part in the energy production process. Normally this creatine is provided from the diet but the body does have the ability to manufacture creatine from the amino acids arginine, glycine and methionine. | | It appears that because of the changes in people's dietary habits they are receiving less creatine in their diet and have a sub-optimal store of creatine in the muscle. This is especially so for vegetarian athletes. By supplementing creatine in the diet it is possible to increase the creatine in muscle and improve performance. | | Athletes require a continual supply of energy for high performance activity. This energy is supplied to the muscle in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). The body manufactures ATP from carbohydrate, fat and protein in the diet. Fat can be used to make a lot of ATP but this is a slow process. The body can manufacture ATP from carbohydrate far more quickly but even the breakdown of carbohydrate by anaerobic glycolysis cannot provide ATP fast enough for very explosive events. When the body has a sudden increase in demand for energy it has to rely upon a bank of immediately available energy %u2013 the Creatine Phosphate Energy System. | | Creatine phosphate can 'donate' phosphate groups in order to re-charge ATP. The use of creatine phosphate to recharge ATP during sudden increases in energy demand gives time for carbohydrate metabolism to be fired up. Then during less intense periods the energy from carbohydrate metabolism can be used to pay back the creatine bank to recharge the creatine phosphate. | | Extensive research has shown that by supplementing the natural intake of creatine, the amount of creatine in the body can be increased to about 5g per kilogram of muscle. | This increase results in an increase in athletic performance, particularly in repeated sprint type activities, interval training and weight training. Most research has been undertaken using 5g doses taken 4 times a day (20g a day in total). Doses of 5g produce a large rise of creatine in the blood that 'pushes' the creatine into the muscle. Taking a loading dose of 20g a day for 5 days produces a rapid rise in creatine stores, and most athletes notice a difference immediately although some take a few days to 'settle down'.
