Building Muscle Mass with Creatine
If you’ve ever wanted to add more lean muscle mass to your physique, creatine monohydrate may be just the product for you. Often thought of as a ‘beefy’ support for men or women bodybuilders, creatine can actually be beneficial to anyone who is looking to increase total body muscle mass.
Kaizen Naturals® Micronized Creatine is another product in our strength arsenal and not known to everyone. In fact, creatine often comes with many questions that we hope we can help to shed some light on.
What does it do for me?
This amazing amino acid works to increase your body’s ability to produce muscular energy. Therefore, taking creatine is most effective for those who are training intensely or performing explosive activities because the body is exerting force for the purpose of gaining strength and power.
How do I know if it’s right for me?
Creatine may not be the best support for people who are more focused on aerobic output. And, it is not a weight loss supplement. In fact, it is exactly the opposite. If you’re trying to lose weight, creatine is not for you because as an osmotically active substance, which means it pulls water into your muscle cells to help support muscle synthesis; it doesn’t work to slim you down, but rather build you up.
How should I take it?
If you are considering using Kaizen Naturals® Micronized Creatine, the recommended daily supplement is 5 grams per day, with a recommended loading phase of 5 grams, 3-4 times for the first five to seven days. Thereafter take 5 grams per day.
What does micronized mean?
Lastly, our creatine is micronized, which translates to very tiny, divided molecules creating the supplement. This means improved solubility — dissolving quickly in liquid and an increase of the absorption rate into the body.
So is there a downside? There can be. Building lean muscle only happens if you take advantage of the extra energy and hit the gym. Taking Kaizen Naturals® Micronized Creatine won’t automatically make you look like a poster child for ‘Muscle Beach’, you have to do your part by staying committed to your program and your diet.
It’s also important to note that Kaizen Naturals® Micronized Creatine is NSF Contents Tested & Certified.
