  • Maintains phosphocreatine levels, thus promoting ATP levels*

    Wil's Ebay E-Store

  • Depletion of phosphocreatine without replenishment can result in muscular fatigue and fading muscle power.

    Wil's Ebay E-Store

  • It does this by converting to phosphocreatine which supplies the extra phosphate ion to bond with ADP.

    Wil's Ebay E-Store

  • Donate themselves to creatine to maximize phosphocreatine levels, thus increased ATP levels, strenght and endurance.

    Wil's Ebay E-Store

  • Donate themselves to creatine to maximize phosphocreatine levels, thus increased ATP levels, strength and endurance.

    Wil's Ebay E-Store

  • 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
