Item # 1064, Creatine Monohydrate



INCI Name: Creatine

CAS Numbers: 6020-87-7

Description:

Creatine is naturally produced in the human body from amino acids primarily in the kidney and liver. It is transported in the blood for use by muscles. Approximately 95 % of the human body's total creatine is located in skeletal muscle. Creatine supplements are used by athletes, bodybuilders, wrestlers, sprinters, and others who wish to gain muscle mass, typically consuming 2 to 3 times the amount that could be obtained from a very-high-protein diet.






Applications
In addition to improving athletic performance, creatine is used for congestive heart failure (CHF), depression, bipolar disorder, Parkinson's disease, diseases of the muscles and nerves, an eye disease called gyrate atrophy, and high cholesterol. It is also used to slow the worsening of ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), rheumatoid arthritis, McArdle's disease, and for various muscular dystrophies.
