OLIMP Creatine Monohydrate Creapure is a dietary supplement which contains the highest quality micronised creatine monohydrate, Creapure®. Nowadays, creatine is considered to be one of the best legal anabolic agents, used by both sport amateurs and world’s top athelets of various discplines.
Creatine synthesis takes place mainly in the kidneys. Then it is transported to the liver, where it undergoes final transformations. Finally, under the influence of the Na+ ions, it reaches skeletal muscles through cell membranes. Its main function is binding high-energy phosphate residues and their distribution to cells for the purpose of ATP production.
ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is a source of energy for all working muscles. When ATP releases its phosphate groups, the energy is produced (ATP becomes ADP). Creatine enables the return of phosphate to ADP, which restores ATP.
During intensive workout, the energy required to resynthesis of ATP comes mainly from anaerobic glycolysis and phosphocreatine breakdown. During physical effort, ATP restoration from phosphocreatine declines up to three times when compared to the speed ratio in case of glycolysis. Creatine supplementation during intensive workouts raises the ability of the body system to produce ATP, so that it causes an increase in muscle strength and mass.
Moreover, creatine directly affects muscle mass hypertrophy. It causes an increase in the size and hydration of muscle cells, and hence creates a perfect anabolic environment. Bigger number of repetitions or lifting greater weight are possible due to creatine supplementation. It gives also the body system a reason for adaptation, which results in muscle tissue gain.
You should note that creatine increases physical capacity and efficiency of intermittent workout, when you take regenerating breaks between exercise series (e.g. resistance training, weightlifting, sprint), and does not affect durability. Using creatine during long-distance run will not bring any benefits. It is caused by the fact that ATP restoration possible thanks to creatine takes only 10 seconds from the beginning of an exercise.
Creatine supplementation brings optimal effects when it is combined with properly chosen strength training and diet. It is recommended for athletes of both speed disciplines and strength disciplines, such as weightlifting, martial arts, short-distance running and shape sports. Creatine is recommended during intensive and short workouts.
Creapure® is a form of creatine monohydrate patented by AlzChem (Germany). It is commonly considered to be the highest quality, the purest micronised form of creatine monohydrate available on the market. Numerous studies demonstrate that it has positive influence on the increase in strength and energy production. Micronisation of creatine improves its absorption and effectiveness of action.
To sum it all up, OLIMP Creatine Monohydrate Creapure is a dietary supplement intended for both endurance athletes and people doing recreational physical activity. The best effects will be achieved by people doing resistance and speed trainings. Regular supplementation increases physical capacity, non-fat muscle mass and muscle strength.
One should take care about the proper intake of liquids, as their deficit during creatine use may contribute to diarrhea and nausea. Moreover, it is recommended to take creatine according to the indications to avoid side-effects such as the uncomfortable feeling of stomach contraction. For most effective results take 5 grams before and 5 grams with a protein shake after training. In order to boost the effect take creatine with among others, caffeine, beta-alanine or leucine

Creatine monohydrate is a popular and cheapest form of creatine used in sports supplementation in Poland. This is a molecule, in which are bound: creatine molecule with a molecule of water. It has a high bioavailability and tissue velocity saturation. Supports the exercise capacity (strength and endurance), accelerates muscle growth and regeneration after training exercise. Transport of creatine into the muscle cells is supported by the insulin hormone. For better effect of saturation of the tissues, a diet increasing the content of insulin in the body is indicated (carbohydrate and high protein diet) and supporting nutrients and supplements (Dietary carbohydrate and carbohydrate-protein, insulin ALA, d-pinitol or taurine). Creatine monohydrate is present in the form of mono-preparation supplements (capsules, powders, tablets) and multicomponent supplements (i.e. as a component of creatine stacks).
Dosage: depending on the form of supplement, the type of exercise and weight, normally are used one of the following models of creatine supplementation:
- cyclic supplementation : 5-10g per day in 1-3 portions during the day, 3-5g per dose. The length of the cycle for 4-8 weeks.
- cyclic supplementation with saturated phase: the first 5-7 days after 20-30g daily in 4-6 doses of 4-6g per serving, then the maintenance phase 2-10g per day in divided doses. The length of the cycle 4-8 weeks
- constant supplementation: 0,03-0,05g per kg of body weight for an extended period of time.
