Sorry, no etymologies found.
Creatine is a protein that is part of all muscle fibers and important as a building block for an energy reserve system in cells called phosphocreatine.
NT is designed to help your body with the replenishment of high-energy compounds such as phosphocreatine, ATP and electrolytes, which will help you recover and help increase performance for your next training session.
The energy in your body is stored in packets called ATP as well as phosphocreatine, which are made up of a number of chemicals including a sugar called ribose, adenine which used to be called vitamin B4, and derivatives of B vitamins.
After the discovery of phosphocreatine, this group had detected and isolated adenosine triphosphate.
Maintains phosphocreatine levels, thus promoting ATP levels*
Depletion of phosphocreatine without replenishment can result in muscular fatigue and fading muscle power.
It does this by converting to phosphocreatine which supplies the extra phosphate ion to bond with ADP.
Donate themselves to creatine to maximize phosphocreatine levels, thus increased ATP levels, strenght and endurance.
Donate themselves to creatine to maximize phosphocreatine levels, thus increased ATP levels, strength and endurance.
Isolated perfused hearts were used to study the effects of a decreased oxygen concentration in the perfusate on contractile performance (RPP) and phosphocreatine (PCr) concentration
