Creatine HCl

Creatine HCl / Description

The preparation containing crystal clear creatine hydrochloride in an increased dose, enriched in taurine and vitamin B6. This product is recommended as an adjuvant to achieve the top form especially in the strength and speed-strength disciplines.

Creatine HCl is one of creatine forms which is highly soluble, exceptionally stable and resistant to the acidic environment of the digestive tract. Thanks to these attributes, under normal conditions in the body, this kind of creatine is much better absorbed than  creatine monohydrate1, so its larger quantity is stored in the muscles.
Creatine enhances physical performance in the case of consecutive short, high-intensity exercise- a beneficial effect of such supplementation is observed after the consumption of  3 g per day.

Taurine is a non-protein, sulfuric amino acid, extracted from methionine and cysteine. It is commonly found in the body, particularly in skeletal muscle, heart, brain and retina. Taurine is involved in many processes in the body, inter alia: has an antioxidant effect, regulates the calcium concentration in the cells, is a neurotransmitter and a neuromodulator. Endogenous production of this amino acid does not fully address the needs of the human body and its quantity has to be supplied from the outside2.

Vitamin B6 is a vitamin of the B group, soluble in water and is involved in many key processes, particularly important for physically active people:

  • Contributes to the maintenance of normal energy metabolism
  • Helps in the proper functioning of the nervous system
  • Contributes to the maintenance of normal protein and glycogen metabolism
  • Helps in proper production of red blood cells
  • Contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
