Purity's Pure Creatine - Cherry-Berry Flavor harnesses the muscle building power of Creatine along with key cofactors to optimize your strength and performance. This highly innovative formulation combines the elite Creapure® Creatine with Vitamin D3, CoffeeBerry® plus patented FruiteX-B® (calcium fructoborate) in a great tasting cherry-berry flavored powder which mixes easily with water/juice. Creatine -- the focus of more than 300 scientific studies -- is now one of the most extensively researched dietary supplements in the field of sports nutrition and for good reason. When it comes to nutritionally supporting muscle strength, size, mass, recovery and even healthy brain function, Creatine is in a league of its own.* Creatine gives an athlete the edge, and because of this, Creatine supplementation has become a common practice among professional, collegiate, and amateur athletes and weightlifters for enhancing performance.
How Does Creatine Build Muscle?
Creatine saturates your muscles with creatine phosphate a high-energy compound that boosts your cellular energy supply when you need to push out those last few reps in the gym. Creatine accomplishes this by helping to keep muscle cells supplied with ATP, the body's primary energy fuel. Without enough ATP, your muscles won't keep working as long, plain and simple. Power workouts may produce hundreds of muscular contractions, robbing your muscles of ATP. This is where creatine helps maximize your workout results. The liver converts creatine into creatine phosphate (phosphocreatine) which supplies high-energy phosphate molecules that regenerate ATP in muscle cells.
If a cell needs energy, the "high-energy" ATP is converted to "low-energy" adenosine diphosphate (ADP). Similar to a "battery charger", creatine (phosphocreatine) amps up low-energy ADP up to high-energy ATP until ATP that has been converted from fat and carbohydrates is available. Because creatine supplementation increases the amount of creatine in muscletissue, it critically promotes strength, size and muscle power.
Creatine Helps Create More ATP in the Cells which Equals More Energy...
More ATP equals more energy, delayed fatigue, better endurance and more productive workouts. The payoff? The strength and muscle mass you're working so hard to achieve. Creatine also hydrates muscle cells with water, promoting muscle fiber growth. The bottom line is that creatine supplementation is one of the safest, most effective nutritional strategies at your disposal for amplifying a weightlifting or body building program, and it pays dividends in terms of promoting muscle size, mass and strength.*
Just in! Recent research has revealed that creatine supplementation helps boost brain function and mental performance, which is no surprise, since brain cells also have high requirements for ATP.*
Best of all, Pure Creatine™ gives you Creapure® Creatine monohydrate, the top- quality creatine proven safe and effective in more than 50 clinical trials. Creapure® has been studied extensively with no toxic effects. All studies on Creapure® have been conducted in accordance with internationally accepted guidelines and standards (FDA and EU) under GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) conditions.
Along with Creapure® Creatine, Pure Creatine™ provides Boron, Vitamin D and CoffeeBerry® to support optimal muscle strength, energy, endurance and recovery.
Patented Boron and CoffeeBerry
Pure Creatine™ contains FruiteX-B®, calcium fructoborate, a unique
and patented form of the trace mineral boron naturally found in fruit and
vegetables. Boron is known to play an important role in the metabolism of
vitamin D and steroid hormones.*Pure Creatine™ also includes
CoffeeBerry®, a stellar antioxidant and healthy source of natural caffeine.
CoffeeBerry®, is the whole coffee fruit, loaded with antioxidant polyphenols
and other beneficial nutrients. One serving of Pure Creatine™ contains 50
milligrams of caffeine, the amount in about half a cup of coffee.
How to Use Creatine for Muscle Power:
Creatine can be taken daily, before or after workouts
More Creatine in Your Muscles Means More Muscle Power
Creatine Improves Muscle Power
In a controlled clinical trial, researchers evaluated the influence of
creatine loading (high-dose, short-duration supplementation) on muscle power in
young males.1 Twenty young men ingested either 20 grams of creatine monohydrate
a day or a placebo over a 7-day period. Compared to the placebo group, men
taking creatine monohydrate gained a statistically significant 5.4 percent
increase in muscle power. This showed that creatine monohydrate boosts the
body’s ability to produce ATP, during and in-between exercise.
Creatine Increases Muscle Strength and Decreases Muscle Fatigue
Research confirms that short-term high-dose creatine
supplementation immediately followed by long-term low-dose supplementation
increases muscular strength in young males.2 In one study, twenty-three young
men were divided into two groups, a creatine group and a placebo group. The
creatine group ingested five grams of creatine monohydrate daily for 5 days,
followed by two grams of creatine monohydrate for six weeks. Individuals in both
groups followed a resistance-training program. Creatine improved arm flexor
muscular strength as well as upper arm muscle area increase. Fat-free mass was
also increased in the creatine monohydrate group.
In another recent study of 20 healthy individuals,
investigators found that low-dose, long-duration creatine supplementation
decreases fatigue in healthy adults. The researchers examined the effect of
low-dose creatine supplementation, at a dose of approximately 2.3 grams of
creatine per day, on several fatigue and physiological parameters. Strength,
muscle fatigue and blood creatine concentrations were determined prior to and
after creatine ingestion. Six-week creatine supplementation caused significant
increases in blood creatine levels, as well as improved fatigue resistance.
Creatine Increases Lean Body Mass
In one of the early long-term creatine studies, researchers
found that creatine loading and long-term creatine supplementation resulted in a
sustained fat-free mass increase.4 For this study, 20 young men ingested either
a high-dose creatine supplement (20 grams per day) for 5 days (loading phase) or
the placebo. The loading phase was then immediately followed by a low-dose
maintenance phase (2 grams of creatine per day) for 6 weeks. Creatine loading
resulted in statistically significant increases in total body creatine (32%),
muscle free creatine (51%), and phosphocreatine (25%) levels. Creatine ingestion
also produced statistically significant gains in fat-free body mass during the
