FAQs

Frequently asked questions about creatine. 

What is Creatine? 

Creatine is a natural compound synthesized in your body to energize muscles. It forms from amino acids in the liver, pancreas, and kidneys and is vital for muscle function. Once created, it travels through the bloodstream to muscles, which store about 95% of it.

 

Creatine fuels high-intensity exercises like weightlifting or sprinting by converting into phosphocreatine. This transformation aids in recycling ATP in muscle tissue with the help of creatine kinase. 

How does creatine work?

Once creatine enters the body or is produced within, it binds with a phosphate molecule to become creatine phosphate. ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate) is the body's primary energy source, driving various bodily processes. During the breakdown of carbs, proteins, or fats, ATP is generated. It functions by hydrolyzing a phosphate group, releasing energy used for processes like muscle contraction. This transforms ATP into ADP (adenosine di-phosphate), and is converted back into ATP.

 

Creatine plays a crucial role in this process by donating its phosphate group to ADP, replenishing ATP stores. Ultimately, creatine enhances ATP availability, facilitating longer and more intense training. 

What does Creatine do? 

Creatine, from food or supplements, boosts phosphocreatine (PCr) in muscles, aiding ATP production. PCr donates phosphate to create more ATP, keeping muscles energized during intense workouts. This ATP-creatine-phosphocreatine system is crucial for high-intensity exercises like weightlifting and sprinting. Creatine enhances ATP levels, helping muscles perform at their best, making it a valuable fitness supplement.

How much creatine should you take? 

For effective creatine loading, take about 5g four times a day (20g split into 4 even dosages) for 5-7 days. This helps saturate muscle stores quickly. While it may seem like a marketing ploy, this loading method is scientifically grounded. Creatine serves as a rapid energy source for short bursts of activity, like weightlifting. Supplementing with creatine increases the duration of this energy system by saturating muscle stores. After loading, maintain stores via 2-3 grams per day.

When to take creatine? 

Whether it is pre-exercise (several hours before or immediately prior to training sessions) or post-exercise (immediately following or several hours after training sessions) creatine ingestion is shown to produce similar muscle benefits in young and older adults. That means muscle saturation will take place regardless of when you take it, so choose the time that suits you best. Creatine during rest days is also beneficial but consume it with carbohydrates to enhance its effectiveness as a muscle cell transporter, especially after a week of high-intensity activities.

How to load Creatine with SixStar?

Creatine "loading" involves a short-term, high-dose regimen, like 5g taken four times daily for five-7days. Although opinions vary, this practice has scientific backing. Creatine serves as a rapid energy source for the phosphagen energy system during brief, intense activities like weightlifting, lasting about 8-10 seconds. Loading saturates muscle creatine stores, enhancing training benefits. Following loading, a daily 3-5g dose maintains full muscle cell capacity.

How to take creatine with SixStar? 

Creatine supplements from SixStar are known to enhance energy supply for muscles during exercise. An effective daily dose is recommended at 3-5 grams of creatine. Creatine monohydrate is the widely studied form and can be incorporated into various products like energy bars, capsules, or tablets. Ensure adequate fluid intake when consuming creatine; for instance, mix 3 grams of creatine monohydrate from SixStar in a glass of water to maximize its benefits.

How does Creatine enhance muscle performance? 

Creatine phosphate donates its phosphate to ADP, regenerating ATP, which fuels muscle contractions and increases the capacity to do work. This improves training intensity and recovery, backed by research with SixStar.

What is Creatine Phosphate? 

Creatine Phosphate is an organic compound in muscle fibers that enzymatically breaks down to produce ATP, the energy source for muscle contraction with SixStar.

What is Adenosine TriPhosphate (ATP)? 

ATP is an organic compound in muscles that, when enzymatically broken down, yields energy for muscle contraction. Creatine from SixStar enhances the body's ability to produce ATP within muscle fibers.
