Gym Supplement Highlight: Creatine Matrix
Here at Atomic Strength Nutrition, we offer a range of gym supplements to fuel your workout, aid in recovery, and help you build muscle mass without filling your body with junk. One of our most popular supplements is the Creatine Matrix. Let’s take a closer look at what’s inside this tub and what it can do for your workouts.
What Is Creatine?
Creatine is quickly becoming one of the best gym supplements out there thanks to studies that show it has real effects on muscle mass, strength, and performance. It is a favorite among bodybuilders and is thought to be a safe, legal, and ethical way to ‘bulk up’. Creatine is a natural substance that increases the amount of phosphocreatine in the body, which enables ATP (adenosine triphosphate) to regenerate more quickly, which shortens recovery time and decreases workout-related muscle fatigue.
What Does A Creatine Supplement Do?
Our clinically proven Creatine Matrix has been shown to boost anabolic strength, decrease recovery time, develop lean muscle mass, and limit bloating and cycling associated with inferior creatines.
Is Creatine Safe?
Scientific research has shown that creatine to be a safe supplement to take with no medically significant side effects in short- or long-term studies. Most healthy people will not experience problems with creatine, but if you have concerns or have kidney or liver disorders, you can talk with your doctor about whether or not a creatine supplement is right for you. Some people do complain of stomach cramping or bloating associated with taking creatine supplements, but Atomic Strength has created a tri-blend creatine formula that eliminates this symptom. Keep reading below to learn more about this.
How Is Atomic Strength Creatine Different?
As we mentioned, creatine powder gets a bad reputation for causing stomach discomfort. This is largely caused by cycling. Creatine is shown to be the most beneficial during the first 4-6 weeks of supplementation. For this reason, many athletes will go through creatine cycles where they load up on creatine with larger doses for about a week or two before lowering the amount taken daily to a ‘maintenance’ phase. When it is time to load again, they often experience the dreaded bloating phase.
Atomic Strength eliminates the need for loading with a tri-blend formula of creatine monohydrate, creatine malate, and creatine magnapower. Creatine monohydrate helps to stimulate the development of lean muscle tissue and has been shown to be the most effective type of creatine for performance and recovery. However, it is also the one that needs the most cycling and loading. For that reason, we balance this with creatine malate, which has a slower breakdown period and stays in the bloodstream for longer, which can assist in a faster recovery time. Creatine Magnapower, also called creatine chelate, includes magnesium which can help increase hydration. This combination gives you a well-rounded creatine blend supplement.
When Should I Take A Creatine Supplement?
We recommend combining one scoop with 8 ounces of water, juice, or add it to your protein shake. If you will be exercising that day, we suggest taking it about 30 minutes before your workout. On rest days, you can take a creatine supplement with breakfast. Both men and women can take creatine supplements.
