Rule 1 Proteins R1 Creatine Monohydrate is a micronized creatine formula. One serving provides 5 grams of micronized creatine monohydrate. That’s it, there’s nothing else!
Creatine monohydrate is the most effective form of creatine. That’s because creatine monohydrate is the most researched form you can buy. Even better, our creatine monohydrate powder is micronized for faster absorption and greater suspension in liquid. This means you can drink it easier. If greater training capacity, massive cell volume, and lean mass are what you’re after, take a good look at R1 Creatine.
What Is Creatine?
Creatine occurs naturally in fish and meats. It’s synthesized by the liver, pancreas, and kidney. Plus, it's naturally produced from the amino acids methionine, arginine, and glycine. (1)
What Is Creatine Monohydrate?
As a supplement, creatine monohydrate is creatine with a molecule of water attached. It’s typically 90% creatine by weight.
What Does Creatine Do?
Creatine is naturally stored in the muscles as creatine phosphate as part of the ATP-CP system of energy. Your muscle cells contain as much as 6 times the creatine phosphate as they do ATP.
As you no doubt know, ATP is the muscle cells' immediate energy source for both high and low-intensity exercise and other physical activity. Even so, it takes less than a second for your muscles to burn your ATP reserve. This is where creatine phosphate enters the picture. Your muscles have a small reserve of creatine that can be rapidly converted to ATP. This powers an all-out physical effort (think the last tough reps of a heavy set of bench presses) for up to 15 seconds. No doubt this is primarily for short-duration exercise.
The use of creatine monohydrate to enhance muscle cell energy becomes obvious when you look at creatine synthesis. There's a regulating enzyme called creatine kinase. This is an enzyme that breaks down creatine, separating the creatine molecule from the phosphate molecule. The phosphate molecule then binds with ADP and converts into ATP. Your body produces new ATP through this process. This entire thing can take up to 4-5 minutes. (5)
The bottom line is simple. The more creatine available, the more that can be ultimately used for energy. By using creatine monohydrate, you can train harder and longer. This leads to improved performance, more muscle, and more strength. Of course, the best way to get more creatine is to take Rule 1 Proteins R1 Creatine Monohydrate.
Wait, There's More!
But that’s not all. Creatine monohydrate is the original "cell volumizer" or "cell expansion" supplement. In fact, it created the term and the category. It increases cell volume, or water-based pumps, by pulling water into the muscle cells. This causes them to expand. (combine R1 Creatine Monohydrate with R1 Pre-Train for both water-based and nitric oxide pumps).
What’s The Best Way To Use Rule 1 Proteins R1 Creatine Monohydrate?
The following methods are the best ways to use Rule 1 Proteins R1 Creatine Monohydrate.
Method 1: Loading Phase/Daily Maintenance Dose
While you do not need to load R1 Creatine Monohydrate, this approach allows you to saturate your muscles faster. This means you experience the benefits sooner. You can load creatine by taking 4-5 5g doses mixed with the beverage of your choice for 5-7 days. After that, take a 5g dose once per day.
Method 2: Low Daily Dose
Simply, take a 5g dose with any beverage every day. This method is easier but takes several weeks longer to saturate your muscles.
