K POWER+ is formulated to increase muscle strength, explosiveness and anaerobic performance. It targets sportsmen doing intense, demanding but short physical exercise.Creatine is used in strength exercise that almost all athletes must do as part of their training. In particular in lactacid sports (all sprints both short and long), in combat and 'stop and go' sports, typically team sports (rugby, basket, hockey, football).
K POWER+ consists of 4 sources of creatine that is used by the muscle to regenerate ATP (energy) during the first few seconds of muscular contraction.
Creatine Monohydrate is stored in the muscle as phosphocreatine (Pcr), readily available to give its phosphate to ADP (Adenosine Diphosphate) for the synthesis of new ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), necessary for muscle contraction. At the same time, muscular trophism increases, with the entrance of water into the myocyte (muscle cell) and consequent increase of the muscle mass. Moreover, it seems to be able to stimulate satellite cells, leading to the formation of new myocytes. The energy supplied to produce ATP during and after physical exercise depends mainly on the quantity of Pcr deposited in the muscle. The ability to maintain the level of effort constant decreases as the Pcr supply decreases. The high creatine content allows the muscle to recover more quickly from intense physical efforts, improving performance.
The second form in which creatine is found in this product is Creatine Pyruvate. This is a molecule formed by creatine and pyruvic acid bound together with covalent bonds. This molecule is very soluble in water and seems to reduce both the formation of bottom materials and metabolization into creatine, both responsible for side effects such as diarrhoea and abdominal cramps.
The third form of creatine in K POWER+ is Creatine Malate , consisting of creatine with malic acid. This is part of the Krebs cycle leading to energy production. So, a significantly greater amount of energy than that of creatine monohydrate is created. Moreover, in this shape, it causes no water retention.
The last source of creatine is Creatine-Ethyl-Ester that is creatine in ethylesterified form. This new molecule is more lipophilic and penetrates more easily through the membranes to reach the muscle cells where it is absorbed directly and without causing any swelling. So, you get the synergy of 4 types of creatine that reach the muscle to promote muscle contraction and explosivity until the last repetition.
