What is Creatine?
Creatine is naturally produced in our bodies and can also be obtained in the diet from red meat and fish. The body stores creatine in high energy phosphate groups known as phosphocreatine, which regenerate ATP, the body's energy currency. For those who are involved in high intensity training, supplementation with creatine is recommended to help boost energy stores, allowing for increased work capacity. As you'd expect, increased work capacity and intensity leads to strength and lean mass gains.
How does Creatine Ethyl Ester differ from Creatine Monohydrate
Creatine Ethyl Ester, or CEE is a variant of the well researched Creatine Monohydrate. CEE is quite simply Creatine Monohydrate joined to a fat-soluble ester, this is a potent supplement and the recommended dose is 3g per day. This is a great choice for anyone who doesn't respond to normal Creatine Monohydrate, in addition there is little to no water retention associated with using this derivative of creatine.
What are the performance benefits associated with CEE?
CEE can help to increase explosive power, making it ideal for sprinters, bodybuilders and any other high intensity athlete. Creatine is one of the most heavily researched sports supplements around and aside from the improvements in power it has recently been linked with improvements in endurance performance and cognition.
Who is CEE suitable for?
CEE Capsules are suitable for anyone undertaking high intensity exercise and looking to improve overall performance.
How should I use CEE?
We recommend taking six 500mg capsules per day, these are best taken 30-45 minutes before exercise.
What goes well with CEE capsules?
CEE capsules are a perfect partner to our Whey Protein 80 to help maximise strength and lean mass development. Glutamine can also be taken post workout to help muscular recovery.
