Activlab Creatine Powder Super is a dietary supplement containing micronised creatine monohydrate, which is one of the best forms of creatine. High micronisation, 200 mesh, guarantees excellent assimilability and fast action. The product offers many flavour options: lemon, blackcurrant, grapefruit, kiwi, orange, and cherry.
Creatine is a natural component of skeletal muscles that performs the function of storing essential metabolic energy. Some creatine is located in muscles in the phosphorylated form called phosphocreatine.
Some amounts of creatine can be produced in the organism out of amino acids: glycine, methionine, and arginine. The organism is capable of synthesising the compound provided that it has access to the above-listed amino acids. However, practically speaking, most creatine should be delivered with food and creatine supplements. The products of creatine breakdown are excreted with urine in the form of creatinine.
Creatine monohydrate is a combination of a creatine molecule with a water molecule in the ratio of 1:1. The compound is believed to be one of the most efficient forms of creatine available; its main advantage is great assimilability in the organism. Creatine monohydrate is one of the most popular dietary supplements used by people who focus on strength workout. It is said that supplementation with creatine in the form of monohydrate allows an increase in the reserves of the compound in skeletal muscles of as much as 40%.
Creatine monohydrate supports muscle endurance. Creatine neutralises a compound formed in the process of anaerobic glycolysis, lactic acid, which is the main factor to blame when it comes to muscle tiredness, making it difficult to continue training. Anaerobic glycolysis is a process that takes place during intensive physical workout with insufficient oxygen supply. It enables further production of metabolic energy (ATP). The neutralisation of lactic acid restores normal pH of the environment in muscles and helps to increase their endurance.
Creatine supports post-workout regeneration, muscle mass growth, and increases the size of muscle fibres. According to research, supplementation with creatine supporting strength training leads to an increase in the level of IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor) in skeletal muscles. The factor is secreted in response to the action of growth hormone and stimulates anabolic processes. Thanks to its anabolic properties, creatine promotes the synthesis of protein and faster muscle regeneration.
When accompanying strength workout, creatine monohydrate is an efficient tool in increasing lean body mass.
Creatine helps to improve workout parameters. It exhibits anticatabolic properties, which means that it protects the particularly vulnerable muscle proteins from catabolism (breakdown) during and after tough workout. Thanks to that, the negative phenomenon of reduced muscle mass and strength does not occur; on the contrary, they are increased. That, in turn, has a direct effect on workout results.
To sum up, Activlab Creatine Powder Super efficiently supports the regeneration of creatine and phosphocreatine reserves in skeletal muscles. It is recommended as an aid for training, particularly for professional athletes, strength athletes, and physically active people.
It is a good idea to take creatine with a meal containing simple or complex carbohydrates. Insulin, released in response to increased blood sugar concentration, increases the transport of creatine to muscle tissue, which has been demonstrated by in vitro tests.
Creatine works in synergy with β-alaninę.

Creatine monohydrate is a popular and cheapest form of creatine used in sports supplementation in Poland. This is a molecule, in which are bound: creatine molecule with a molecule of water. It has a high bioavailability and tissue velocity saturation. Supports the exercise capacity (strength and endurance), accelerates muscle growth and regeneration after training exercise. Transport of creatine into the muscle cells is supported by the insulin hormone. For better effect of saturation of the tissues, a diet increasing the content of insulin in the body is indicated (carbohydrate and high protein diet) and supporting nutrients and supplements (Dietary carbohydrate and carbohydrate-protein, insulin ALA, d-pinitol or taurine). Creatine monohydrate is present in the form of mono-preparation supplements (capsules, powders, tablets) and multicomponent supplements (i.e. as a component of creatine stacks).
Dosage: depending on the form of supplement, the type of exercise and weight, normally are used one of the following models of creatine supplementation:
- cyclic supplementation : 5-10g per day in 1-3 portions during the day, 3-5g per dose. The length of the cycle for 4-8 weeks.
- cyclic supplementation with saturated phase: the first 5-7 days after 20-30g daily in 4-6 doses of 4-6g per serving, then the maintenance phase 2-10g per day in divided doses. The length of the cycle 4-8 weeks
- constant supplementation: 0,03-0,05g per kg of body weight for an extended period of time.
