Creatine is an amino acid that’s naturally found in the body, primarily skeletal muscle, and various food sources such as red meat and seafood. Within the body, creatine is stored in the form of phosphocreatine.
Creatine helps supply skeletal muscles with energy by donating a phosphate group to adenosine diphosphate (ADP) which converts it to adenosine triphosphate (ATP) the body’s main energy source. By quickly regenerating ATP, creatine may help increase exercise performance, muscle mass, endurance, power, and stamina.
In addition to supplying the body with energy, creatine also acts as an osmolyte which means that it draws water into the muscle cells resulting in enhanced cellular hydration. Creatine is one of the most well-researched dietary supplement ingredients on the market. Numerous studies have shown that creatine, specifically creatine monohydrate, is both safe and effective.
Since creatine monohydrate has the most amount of studies to support its use, that’s the only form found in Axe & Sledge’s Basics Series Creatine. Just like the name implies, Axe & Sledge’s Basics Series Creatine contains 100% pure creatine monohydrate with no fillers, excipients, or artificial substances! Axe & Sledge’s basics series creatine is unflavored, so you can easily add it to your pre-workout, intra-workout, or post-workout drink.
Although creatine is naturally found in some foods, getting enough to optimize athletic performance through diet alone is extremely challenging. Therefore, supplementing with creatine is often recommended. For optimal results, you should consume one serving, or five grams, of Axe & Sledge's creatine on training and non-training days. Every bottle of Axe & Sledge Creatine contains 50 servings, and every scoop contains five grams of creatine monohydrate.
As a dietary supplement, mix one heaping scoop (5 grams) of basics creatine with 8-10 ounces of water or your preferred beverage. For best results, consume daily.
