Olimp TCM Mega Caps 1100 is a dietary supplement providing top-quality tricreatine malate in capsules containing its solid dose. Tricreatine malate (TCM) boostss muscle performance during training very effectively, increasing its intensity. Thanks to the adopted form of capsules, this product is extremely convenient to use, because it does not require dissolving in water.
Creatine malate is a compound of malic acid and creatine. This combination provides very good solubility in our digestive tract, probably much better than other available forms of creatine. For this reason, it is perfectly absorbed, because only dissolved creatine can be absorbed into our bloodstream and from there penetrate into the skeletal muscles, where it fulfils its functions.
In addition, malic acid released from this compound may enter the Krebs cycle, leading to the formation of additional ATP molecules (energy) and intermediates entering later on the respiratory chain.
Creatine increases energy production
Creatine is a compound that has the ability to combine with phosphoric acid residues (phosphate groups) to form phosphocreatine. The more creatine is present in the muscles, the more phosphate groups it can attach and provide storage for. They are then detached and used to react with adenosine diphosphate (ADP) to produce ATP - a compound that serves as an energy source for the cell.
During intensive physical exertion, the energy demand increases. In terms of proper muscle function, energy in the form of high-energy bonds occurring between phosphate residues in ATP is consumed, among others for contraction of muscle fibres or protein biosynthesis, e.g. myosin and actin.
Creatine supplementation is therefore associated with a greater supply of energy substrates in muscle cells and the possibility of their rapid use in the event of an increase in the energy needs of the cell. Such a situation takes place during intensive training, in which case, thanks to taking creatine, we are able to do more repetitions. This translates into better results and faster achievement of the intended training goals.
Powerful anabolic support
Creatine causes an increased synthesis of insulin-like growth factor IGF-1, which has a strong anabolic effect and causes much faster muscle built-up. Research has revealed even more than 30% advantage over individuals not taking creatine. In addition, anabolic action supports not only faster muscle development, but also enhances the regeneration of muscle microdamages after hard training.
It is worth mentioning that the visual increase in muscles, or actually the increase in muscle volume, is also caused to a certain extent by water retention related to taking creatine. You can easily get rid of it going on a reduction diet, while for those who start their adventure with the gym or who want quick visible effects of their workouts, it is a positive aspect.
Anti-catabolic effect of creatine
Apart from enhancing anabolic processes, creatine also has the anti-catabolic action. This means that to a certain extent it prevents the degradation of muscles, which may be caused, for example, by insufficient supply of protein, glutamine or insufficient time for regeneration.
Muscle catabolism can be reduced by ensuring proper regeneration, nutrition or supplementation with creatine preparations.
To sum up, Olimp TCM Mega Caps 1100 is creatine malate in convenient capsules. This product provides comprehensive support in muscle building, favourably affecting anabolic processes and inhibiting catabolism.
Creatine malate is one of the most effective and best assimilable creatine forms. Creatine should be best taken on an empty stomach and washed down with a lot of water and with simultaneous supplementation with simple sugars. Creatine may be used in various sports disciplines, however, higher effects are noticed in case of repetitive disciplines characterized by high intensity and short duration. New research has proven that creatine may be used all year round without dividing the periods of application into cycles and loading phases used in the past are ineffective.
Olimp is a Polish company offering dietary supplements and supplements for athletes that are made of carefully selected and safe for health ingredients.

Creatine malate (tri-creatine malate, TCM, di-creatine malate) is a combination of one molecule of creatine and three (or two) of molecules of malic acid in the ionized form (malate) in one molecule. It has better solubility in liquids of creatine monohydrate. Malate is involved in energy conversion enhancing effect of creatine in this regard. With proper use of creatine malate, there is an increase in exercise capacity of the body (strength and endurance), acceleration - although slower than provide other compounds creatine for better quality - of increase in lean body mass, provides faster and better biological regeneration after exercise. To have a fast saturation of the muscles with creatine, products containing insulin should be used (carbohydrates and proteins) or insulin-mimetic (and the substances of similar ALA, D-pinitol, taurine). Creatine malate is available in the form of powders and capsules (mono-preparation supplements and creatine stacks), for purchase at muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: Usual recommendation in sports, depends on the form of supplement, the type of exercises and weight, uses one of the following creatine dosage models:
- cyclic supplementation: 5-10g per day in 1-3 portions during the day, 2-5g per dose. Cycle length approx. 4-12 weeks
- Constant supplementation: 0,03-0,05g per kg of body weight for an extended period of time.
Creatine (β-methylguanidoacetic acid) is an endogenous substance, synthesized from the acids present in liver and kidney (L-arginine, L-glycine and L-methionine) and consumption of meat. Its action ensures an adenosine triphosphate (ATP) level, which is an energy carrier, increases the hydration of cells and muscle glycogen stores. In the sports supplementation creatine is stored in the muscles, which improves energy management, exercise capacity and quick recovery and muscle growth. It has the ergogenic, anabolic and anti-catabolic potential.
Creatine is one of the high-performance substances used in competitive sports, with a reputation confirmed by scientific research. In the form of mono-preparation supplements such as creatine ester, creatine malate, creatine monohydrate, and the multi-component supplements (both various forms of creatine, as well as other substances, precursors of nitric oxide, the BCAA type amino acids). Supplements containing creatine available for purchase at www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: depending on the form of preparation, the type of exercise and weight, normally one of the following models of creatine dosage is used:
- cyclic supplementation: 5 - 10g per day in 1 - 3 portions a day, 2 - 5 g per dose. Cycle time approx. 4 - 12 weeks
- cyclic supplementation with saturated phase: first 5 - 7 days 20 - 30g per day on Day 4 - 6 doses 4 - 6g per serving, then the maintenance phase 2 - 10g per day in divided doses. Cycle time approx. 4 - 8 weeks
- constant supplementation: 0.03 - 0.05 g per kg body weight for an extended period of time.
