Creatine Monohydrate by Switch Nutrition

CREATINE is a tripeptide (protein made of 3 amino acids) that is found primarily in red meat and is made in your body. Vegan, vegetarian and pescatarian diets tend to be low in creatine. Arginine, Glycine and Methionine are the 3 amino acids that combine to make this natural energy molecule. Creatine is one of the most clinically researched ergogenic aids available. It has been shown repeatedly to help boost power, strength, speed and recovery.

Creatine May Help With

  • Increasing Power
  • Increasing Strength
  • Supporting Lean Muscle
  • Enhanced Recovery

Creatine provides most of its benefit by helping to transport phosphate into the mitochondria of your cells in the form of phosphocreatine. This phosphocreatine supports ATP regeneration. Your body’s performance is limited by how quickly you can regenerate ATP. Therefore, because Creatine can support this process faster, you will perform and recover better.

In one 6-week study participants using Creatine gained 2kg of lean muscle mass more than the placebo-controlled group. Creatine is not only effective but safe also. It has been researched for over 200 years and clinical trials lasting up to 5 years show no adverse reactions.

Nutritional Panel

Dosage

Consume 2.5 – 5g of CREATINE per day. It is best consumed before and after exercise. Loading is not essential unless you have an event within 3 weeks of starting consumption.

Frequently asked questions

  • How much creatine should I use?

    We recommend consuming 5g of Creatine Monohydrate 1-2 times a day. Taken immediately pre or post-workout with a protein and carbohydrate blend. Alternatively, it may be mixed with the beverage of your choice and consumed immediately after mixing.

  • Do I need to do a loading dose with Creatine?

    It is not necessary to implement a ‘loading period’ (typically a high dose for 5-7 days, followed by a lower maintenance dose). However, doing so can increase your muscle creatine stores more rapidly. Supplementation with 20g daily for 5-7 days can increase stores by 10-40%. But as mentioned, this loading strategy is unnecessary. Most research seems to show a dose of 5g daily is the maximum needed to elicit benefits over time. Creatine needs to be taken continuously over a number of weeks to gain benefit. Creatine does not act like a stimulant such as caffeine where the impact of performance is acute and nearly immediate. Rather, creatine has its benefit when it accumulates and muscle stores become saturated.

  • Does Creatine cause dehydration?

    Some do say that creatine causes muscle cramps and dehydration. However, creatine may actually serve to protect against dehydration by drawing more water into cells. Studies have shown increases in total muscle creatine stores following supplementation led to increased water retention, particularly within the muscle itself.

  • Is creatine bad for me? Will it damage my kidneys/liver?

    In short, no. Creatine is not bad for you if dosed suitably. Like many other amino acids overdosing on Creatine for an extended period can put too much load on the kidneys and the liver. However we naturally consume creatine in every day foods such as beef and the human body can use creatine effectively to restore intra muscular energy levels. When dosed correctly, creatine will not harm the body but will aid performance greatly.
