As one of bodybuilding’s ultimate supplement, NOW Creatine Monohydrate Pure Powder is responsible for supporting performance in high-intensity exercise, increasing energy levels, and supporting recovery rates. 

What is NOW Creatine Monohydrate Pure Powder?

Creatine Monohydrate is a naturally occurring compound found in the human body and obtained in diet primarily from meat and fish. Creatine functions as an energy reservoir to maintain optimal levels of ATP production during intense exercise. During short, intense bursts of activity, the body breaks down adenosine triphosphate (ATP) into adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and phosphate for energy. Creatine helps the body convert ADP back to ATP, providing greater amounts of ATP for energy, which may increase short-term endurance and strength. Creatine can also be stored for later use by cells, creating the "energy reservoir" active individuals desire. NOW Creatine Monohydrate is 100% pure and contains no additives or preservatives.

Goal of NOW Creatine Monohydrate Pure Powder – Strength & Mass Building

Creatine is important for active individuals due to its ability to serve as an “energy reservoir”, allowing for an increase short-term endurance and strength during intense physical exertion. It is able to enhance energy reserves in muscles due to its muscle protein synthesizing action, while minimizing protein breakdown.

Why NOW Creatine Powder is Important

Our 100% pure Creatine Monohydrate powder offers the advantage of smaller particle size, which allows for easier mixing and faster absorption.

  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
