of creatine + improve physical performance

creatine phosphate is a naturally occurring molecule in the human body and is responsible for replenishing adenosine triphosphate (atp) during fast muscular movements through the phosphagen system.

it’s well known that creatine supplementation has been shown to enhance the total storage of creatine phosphate and helps increase anaerobic power and strength performances.

electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, and magnesium are transporters used to aid in the absorption and utilization of creatine by the body.

these are the main electrolytes in body fluid.

research on creatine + electrolytes... 📚

a study published in 2019 investigated the effects of a creatine supplement formulated with various electrolytes on upper and lower limb anaerobic power, and strength outcomes for recreationally-trained, college-aged individuals. results showed that creatine combined with phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, potassium, and sodium for six weeks led to significant improvements in bench press, back squat max strength, and multiple repetition tests to fatigue, compared to a placebo

a study published in 2018 investigated the effects of a six week creatine-electrolyte supplementation intervention on overall and repeated peak and mean power output during repeated short duration sprint cycling performance, in a group of recreational cyclists.strength, and multiple repetition tests to fatigue, compared to a placebo

results demonstrated significant increases in overall and repeated peak and mean power output during repeated sprint cycling when the sprint and recovery durations are 15 sec and 2 min, respectively.

the increase in peak power output observed in this study is the first time a significant increase in overall and repeated peak power output has been observed during sprint cycling following creatine-electrolyte supplementation.

another study contrasted the effects of creatine-electrolyte vs creatine monohydrate on anaerobic power in NCAA division II athletes.

for the creatine-electrolyte group, they found significantly greater improvement in anaerobic power (i.e. bench press 1RM, vertical jump height, and 100-yard dash time) compared to the creatine monohydrate group. These results indicate that sustained supplementation with a creatine-electrolyte material may yield greater effects than supplementing with creatine monohydrate alone.

it is evident from past research that electrolytes further improve creatine uptake and the ergogenic effects associated with exercise.

  • potassium is involved in maintaining the balance of fluids inside and outside the cells, which can affect the uptake of creatine into the muscles.

  • sodium helps to regulate the osmotic pressure in the cells, which can also impact creatine uptake. 

in addition, creatine transport into cells is mediated via transporter proteins, which operate in an electrogenic fashion, requiring sodium and chlorine ions.

so if you want to feel the effects for yourself, look no further than crealyte® by overload - the perfect synergy between creatine and electrolytes. ⤵️
