Creatine Assimilator (Betaine Anhydrous & Glycocyamine, Guanidinopropionic Acid (3-GPA)

Creatine is a naturally occurring, nonessential amino acid found in certain plant and animal species. Upon the consumption of specific dietary plant and animal sources, we obtain various amino acids, including arginine, glycine, and methionine. These three critical amino acids are solely responsible for providing our bodies with creatine via biosynthesis in the liver, kidney, and pancreas. Created stores of creatine are then transported into our skeletal muscle. Lesser amounts of creatine may also be located in the heart, brain, blood, and other soft tissues. The majority of creatine located throughout the body exists primarily in a free form, while the remainder is bound to phosphate. The metabolization results in the development of phosphocreatine, or creatine phosphate.

Creatine is an important component in the body's production of energy. It also assists in enhancing energy expenditure, and with the building of lean muscle mass. But how does creatine do this? During exercise our body's primary muscular fuel source, Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) loses a phosphate group. The loss of a phosphate group changes ATP into Adenosine Diphosphate, or ADP. Our body uses creatine at this point in the energy cycle, donating a phosphate group to ADP. By donating its phosphate group, creatine rapidly transforms ADP back into ATP, making it ready for immediate use as fuel for the body. Supplemental creatine is used by the body to instantaneously increase both our maximum anaerobic threshold and energy recharge times.
