Olimp Creatine Mono is a groundbreaking dietary supplement containing ultra-micronized creatine monohydrate with the complex CREA Loading DB-6 System. The preparation is conducive to the improvement of growth and sports effects.
CREA Loading DB-6 System is a formula, the aim of which is to protect the structure of creatine from the transformation to its inactive form and facilitate the absorption of creatine from the digestive system to the bloodstream and from the bloodstream to muscle cells (it doesn’t require using “transporters”). The ingredients contained in the preparation (vitamin D, vitamin B6, sodium dicarbonate, sodium citrate) have been selected in such a way as to maximally shorten the absorption time of an unchanged molecule to the target places and create optimal conditions for ATP synthesis, not only in the initial phase of training, but for its whole duration.
Creatine chemically is β- methylguanidoacetic acid, i.e. an organic compound containing structural elements of guanidine and acetic acid. Creatine is naturally produced in the organism from methionine, glycine and arginine, which along with phosphate part contribute to creating phosphocreatine. 95-98% creatine is contained in muscle cells, mainly in the form of free creatine and creatine phosphate.
Creatine – the best-researched supplement used in sport
Creatine is considered to be one of the best legal anabolic means used both by top World competitors of many sports disciplines and by people practicing sport only for pleasure. It is a compound with proven effectiveness, which stimulates the growth of strength and muscle tissue.
Creatine was discovered as early as in 1832 by a French scholar Michel Eugène Chevreul. Its name comes from a Greek word kreas meaning meat, as it is the richest source of this compound. The year 1950 turned out to be groundbreaking in the studies on creatine. Since then, in the USA, the production of synthetic creatine has started, which at the same time contributed to the development of studies on its influence on effort abilities.
The role of creatine in the organism
The main task of creatine phosphate is providing energy to rebuild used ATP molecules, which constitute the basic source of energy during the contraction of working muscles. During performing very intensive training sessions, energy necessary for ATP resynthesis is obtained primarily from the simultaneous breakdown of phosphocreatine and anaerobic glycolysis. However, it is important that the resynthesis of ATP from phosphocreatine, in comparison to the pace of glycolysis, is decreased almost threefold. In relation to this, the concentration of creatine in muscle tissue in physically active people may be increased by means of the supplementation with monohydrate.
Positive influence of creatine on the nervous system and not only
Creatine has positive influence not only on muscle cells. This compound may contribute to the improvement of energy metabolism also on cellular level in the brain. It was also proven that creatine supports intellectual abilities, especially among elderly people. The supplementation of this compound may also decrease the risk of sarcopenia among elderly people, especially in combination with strength exercises.
Creatine also exhibits antioxidant potential, thanks to which it protects the nervous system. It was proven that using creatine may contribute to reducing mental fatigue, improve verbal, long-lasting and spatial memory and decrease the risk of developing neurological disorders – including depression and bipolar disorder.
Scientific studies also confirm the positive influence of creatine in case of patients with cardiovascular system diseases and ailments related to orthopedic and nerve-muscle injuries. Importantly – using creatine according to recommendations is safe for health and does not contribute to the disorders of anabolic change markers, the level of liver and muscle enzymes and changes in morphology and lipid profile of blood.
The preparation will work best in trainings characterized with maximal level of intensity, short duration and repeatability, as it brings incredible effects in the form of help in increasing lean body mass and muscle strength as well as the increase of physical efficiency.
The best time to take creatine is after training. It was also proven that creatine supplementation after training contributes to more effective muscle mass growth than when it is used before training.
It also turns out that a carbohydrate meal has positive influence on the effects of using creatine. Insulin spike influences the transport of the active substance to the cell, in relation to which, it is justified to take creatine with a protein-carbohydrate meal.

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.
Vitamin D belongs to fat soluble vitamins, occurs in three forms: calciferol (vitamin D1) ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), it is formed under the action of sunlight for at least 15 minutes per day. In the absence of sunlight it should be administered in the diet in the form of fish oil (Vitamin A + D3) and fish oils. It is responsible for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. It is the building substance of bone tissue particularly necessary during pregnancy, childhood, and for athletes. It is a component of dietary supplements and nutrients among competetive athletes. Deficiency of vitamin D causes children growth inhibition, and rickets.
For adults - deficiency causes osteomalacia.
Excess of vitamin D causes headaches, alopecia, nausea, drowsiness, blurred vision, pain in the long bones, the deposition of calcium deposits.
Dosage: 400 IU units during the day.
Cholecalciferol, or vitamin D3, is an organic chemical that belongs to the family of D vitamins. It is naturally found in fatty fish, fish oil, egg yolks, milk and dairy products. It is also synthesized in the human body. It is formed from 7-dehydrocholesterol present in the keratinocytes of the spinous and the basal layers of the epidermis, and a pre-requisite for initiating this process is the action of 290-315 nm wavelength UVB radiation on the skin.
Cholecalciferol is a biologically inactive compound. In the body, it undergoes enzymatic hydroxylation – first in the liver, with the participation of 25-hydroxylase, when calcidiol is formed and secondly in the kidneys, where under the influence of 1-α-hydroxylase, calcidiol is converted into the final active form – calcitriol.
The most important role of vitamin D3 in the body is the regulation of calcium-phosphate metabolism, which directly affects normal skeletal mineralization. In addition, it is involved in cell proliferation and differentiation, insulin secretion, as well as in some functions of the nervous, endocrine and immune systems.
Cholecalciferol is the most popular form of vitamin D used in dietary supplements. Studies show that supplementation with vitamin D in this form most effectively and rapidly raises the level of 25 (OH) D3 – a metabolite that is a marker of the level of vitamin D in the body.
Dosage: according to RDI standards for individual age groups.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine) is soluble in the liquid. It participates in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. By reducing the amount of fat in the blood do not enable deposition of the body. It helps the absorption of magnesium and vitamin B12 (cobalamin). It works on the muscle antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory pain in the joints. It acts anti. It provides efficient operation of the brain. It increases energy increasing vigor of a man. The demand for vitamin B6 increases during pregnancy and breast-feeding infants. The natural product is: yeast, eggs, wheat germ, meat (liver), wheat bran, nuts, peanuts peanuts, soybeans. There is a hypothesis that can be synthesized by intestinal bacteria.
Deficiency of vitamin B6 causes abnormal metabolism of proteins, decrease in lymphocytes in the blood, causes a feeling of lethargy and fatigue intensifies.
Dosage: 1.5-2.5 mg daily (increased demand during pregnancy and lactation).
What is pyridoxine hydrochloride?
Pyridoxine hydrochloride is a basic, the most commonly used form of vitamin B6 in supplements and fortified foods. It is a vitamin soluble in water. It converts to the active form of the vitamin - pyridoxal phosphate.
Vitamin B6 is a cofactor in many enzymatic reactions. It takes part in the production of many neurotransmitters, such as GABA, serotonin and catecholamines and it takes part in the metabolism of amino acids, carbohydrates and lipids. It is an important factor for the process of the creation of red cells and hemoglobin and its deficit may be one of the factors causing anemia. This vitamin contributes to maintaining proper energy metabolism and is important for maintaining well-being and good psychological condition. Its presence supports the breakdown of pro-inflammatory homocysteine to cysteine and further metabolites, thanks to which it may decrease the risk of atherosclerosis and cardiological incidents.
Pyridoxine hydrochloride may be found in many vitamin B complexes and vitamin-mineral preparations available in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
Sodium is an important component of the intracellular fluids, and is a regulator of acid-base balance. Along with potassium affects the proper of growth and provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves. The source of acquisition is table salt (NaCl) and bladderwrack, shellfish, bacon, beef, and of plant beets and carrots. People on salt-free diet should avoid, among others, spicy sauces and smoked meats and sausages.
Sodium deficiency is very rare, at heaving sweating after a long effort (e.g. in the marathon).
Excess sodium increases blood pressure (especially for the elderly), edema and increased thirst. Exceeding the daily dose of 14g a day can cause poisoning.
