Creatine affects so many bodily mechanisms that it could be called a vitamin if it was not produced in small amounts in the body (only compounds which are not synthesised in the body can be considered vitamins). However, levels of creatine synthesised by the body are not optimal to use its potential. Because of that, we must supplement it to enjoy fully its benefits.
The product contains monohydrate, the most thoroughly tested and best form of creatine. The well-known brand guarantees the highest quality of the raw material (which is of great significance for final quality of the product). Another advantage is that it has been produced without additives, which is especially crucial to individuals who want to use as natural products as possible.
Creatine supports physical performance – creatine supplementation increases the capacity for resynthesis of the basic energy carrier in the body (ATP – resynthesised by creatine phosphate). It is used directly also as a source of energy during short, intense physical activity (e.g. interval training).
Creatine helps increase strength – in extensive research, creatine has been shown clearly to increase strength even by more than 70%! In addition, it increases the volume of muscles and protects them against excessive degradation (by promoting water retention in muscle tissue). What is more, better performance is achieved by faster growth of muscle tissue (creatine decreases the activity of myostatin, the main factor that inhibits muscle growth).
Creatine shows a broad spectrum of action in the nervous system – it has a neuroprotective effect and promotes the activity of neurotransmitters responsible for homeostasis in this system and the general well-being. It has been shown to have a protective effect on glutamic acid (reduces toxic, excessive accumulation of calcium in cells). It supports also cognitive abilities (by regulating the NMDA receptor).
Studies have shown also an increase in concentrations of GABA receptors which are responsible for relaxation of the body. In preliminary research, creatine has been demonstrated to enhance the effectiveness of antidepressant therapy during the administration of SSRIs (this effect was more noticeable in women). It maintains normal rate of synthesis of dopamine (a neurotransmitter responsible for the sensation of pleasure). It promotes also neuronal development and regulates intracranial (cerebral) pressure.
Creatine protects the cardiovascular system – it inhibits ageing and red blood cell degradation (creatine levels in erythrocytes decrease naturally in the ageing process, leading to their degeneration). Creatine supplementation boosts its levels, thereby slowing down this process.). It protects against excessive levels of homocysteine, a risk factor for heart diseases (including heart attack). It has also a protective effect on blood vessel epithelium. Furthermore, creatine lowers total cholesterol levels.
Creatine promotes glucose and glycogen metabolism – it boosts intracellular transport of glucose (by stimulating the activity of molecules of glucose transporter type 4). It increases muscle glycogen concentrations and speeds up glycogen resynthesis.
Creatine supports the skeletal system – it promotes the proliferation and differentiation of skeletal cells (by increasing the availability of ATP). It boosts also bone density. In addition, creatine has been shown to very effective in rehabilitation by reducing joint pain and stiffness.
Creatine supports the body’s antioxidant system – it protects body cells against oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Due to its buffering effects on energy levels, it inhibited also DNA degradation.
Creatine may delay ageing processes of cells – according to preliminary research, creatine has a protective effect on carnosine levels in muscles (in the case of its deficiencies, it may also increase its levels). The depletion of carnosine is one of the factors for cellular ageing.
To sum up, Trec Creatine Micronized 200 Mesh is a extremely versatile product which will be an effective element of supplementation in practically every situation. It does not only promote physical but also mental performance. In addition, it protects adequately the body from risk factors (mainly associated with oxidative stress). It will provide good support for preventive healthcare of the nervous and cardiovascular system.
There are many different ways of creatine dosing. Until recently, the system of earlier loading had been used, which currently is no longer applied. The newest research show, that the option of around-training supplementation only on training days works best without the division into cycles. Taking 2 doses each day, one in the morning and another after training or between meals on non-workout days is a universal solution. It is worth adding that creatine is best to use on an empty stomach.
Trec Nutrition is a company offering a wide choice of products for athletes. Products of this brand include carbohydrate-protein supplements, protein and energizers. The offer also includes amino acid supplements, creatine, HMB, fat burners, thermogenics, products supporting metabolism and speeding up the regeneration of joints.

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.
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.
