CRM+ is a powder food supplement with creatine monohydrate, indicated for sportspeople.
Creatine is an mino acid derivative (N-Aminomethyl-N-Methylglycine) that is found abundantly in meat and fish- It is synthesized in the human body mainly by the liver, starting from the amino acids methionine, arginine and glycine.
Creatine reaches the myocytes of the skeletal muscles with a sodium-dependent mechanism. It is present in 95% of the muscle, 1/4 as free creatine and 3/4 as phosphocreatine (PCr). Creatine is transformed into phosphocreatine which is the energy reserve for muscular contraction, rapidly available for the synthesis of new ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate).
There are many forms of creatine on the market, but different studies have demonstrated that it is as effective as its progenitor, creatine monohydrate. Its main purpose, in subjects who exercise, is to favor power and explosive exercises by breaking up the Phosphate into its PCr form.
At the same time muscular trophism increases, a very important fact tied to the fraction of intramyocyte water that is withheld as the creatine increases, adducible instead to a true increase in the muscular protein mass and (very interesting) tied to the stimulation of the "satellite cells", with the formation of new myocytes. Marginal results were obtained when using creatine as a supplement in endurance performances.
It is therefore ideal for the power exercises that almost all athletes have to do as part of their training, in particular with glycolitis sports (all sprints, both short extended), in combat sports and "stop and go" sports, typically payed by teams (rugby, basketball, hockey, football).
