Creatine

Creatine, Creatine, creatine monohydrate, creatine 2-oxopropanoate

Creatine is composed of amino acids found in muscle fibers and the brain. It is not essential, which means that the human body can produce it, but its supplementation can increase muscle cell proliferation. Creatine is mainly produced in the liver, also in the kidneys and pancreas. Its main function is to increase strength and power during any kind of movement or exercise. Creatine must be supplemented with significant amounts of water to avoid undesirable side effects.

Longevity & Prevention

To live longer is necessary to live well, meaning that overall well-being, healthy organs, a healthy brain and good habits are taken into consideration when it comes to longevity. All of those circumstances require a healthy lifestyle, which works directly in the prevention of illnesses or conditions that might negatively influence your health. There are a lot nutraceutics and supplements that can help the body to stay safe and sound, just as it should be.
  • Fatigue Prevention

    Fatigue is characterized by a reduction in mental energy. It can also appear as acute and/or chronic fatigue. Acute fatigue is due to excessive mentally demanding work. Chronic fatigue is multifactorial, influenced by insomnia, stress, anxiety, depression, causing tiredness and constant lack of motivation. The substances indicated for fatigue help to improve sleep and mood problems as they are neuroprotective, affecting neurological function.
  • Hydration

    Water is the fundamental component of all cells in the body. It helps regulate body temperature and organ function, eliminates toxins, helps lubricate mucous membranes and, as a solvent, acts as a vehicle for transporting nutrients. It is very important to keep the body hydrated, and some nutraceutics can help.

Cognitive Function and Brain Health

Cognitive functions are brain skills divided into: memory, perception, language, executive functions, attention and praxis (ability to perform complex movements). These functions depend on healthy synapses and neurons, which require good overall brain functioning. Supplements can affect cognitive function directly or indirectly. Direct effects can alter or participate in neurotransmissions and influence the brain's energy metabolism. The indirect effects include hormonal changes that affect the brain, and improvements in cognitive disorders such as anxiety, depression and insomnia.
  • Cognition

    Cognition refers to the mental processes involved in gaining knowledge and comprehension. Cognitive actions include thinking, knowing, remembering, judging, and problem-solving. These are higher-level functions of the brain and include language, imagination, perception, and planning.

Muscle Health

The muscles are responsible for body movement, stabilization, regulation of organs, substance transportation and production of heat in addition to being strongly associated with the circulatory and nervous systems. Muscle quality is essential for well being. Supplements that help keep muscles healthy are related to different factors, such as glucose and insulin regulation, protein synthesis, energy metabolism, and others.
  • Muscle Gain

    Muscle gain, also called hypertrophy, occurs when muscle cells receive a kind of stimulation that generates microlesions. For the healing of these lesions there is an increase in protein synthesis, which gives the muscle a larger volume. This occurs with the aid of a positive calorie balance (more calories consumed than spent). Supplements that increase muscle mass promote resistance and affect the rate of synthesis and breakdown of muscle proteins directly or indirectly.
  • Fatigue Prevention

    Fatigue is characterized by a reduction in physical energy. It can also appear as acute and/or chronic fatigue. Acute fatigue is due to excessive activities, such as physical exercise. Chronic fatigue is multifactorial, influenced by metabolic disorders, nutrient deficiency, physical inactivity, causing tiredness and constant lack of motivation.The substances that help with that are neuroprotective, affecting metabolism, hormones and motor function.
  • Power Output

    Power output is the strength the body can develop in the shortest amount of time. It have to do with muscle fibers, creatine stores and ATP.

Nutritional Support

The concept of healthy nutrition involves a good functioning and homeostasis of all systems and organs of the body, in order to prevent diseases and dysfunctions. The substances consumed for this purpose help general health because they are essential nutrients that have wide functionality in many areas of the body, influencing inflammatory signaling and metabolic pathways that are strongly relevant to most major health problems.
  • Nutrient Supplementation

    The metabolism of nutrients (absorption and different uses for each molecule) is highly linked to the body's vital functions. All the vitamins and minerals are essencial for the whole functioning of cells, hormones, metabolism, etc. When in deprivation of any nutrient, the body starts to show illnesses that can be treated with the right supplementation.
  • Age Range Teenagers (13-19), Adults (20-59), Seniors (>60)
  • Toxicity May be toxic in high doses
  • Side effects Drowsiness, Diarrhea, Cramps, Dehydration
  • Warnings Hepatic Diseases, Renal Diseases

Why be Careful

Excessive amino acids and protein intake may cause loss of kidney function in patients with chronic renal failure, so creatine use is contraindicated for those patients. Individuals with simpler liver problems should also avoid consuming creatine as a supplement. For healthy individuals, medical prescription is recommended but show no side effects until this time.
