  • Benefits the muscles and heart.
  • Encourages maximum physical performance.
  • Helps with exercise fatigue.

Creatine is laid up in the major skeletal muscles, including the heart, and generated in the liver from the amino acids arginine and glycine. The muscles phosphorylate creatine in order to form creatine phosphate, which is a high energy substrate that aids in the contraction of the muscle fibers. Creatine phosphate is employed to uphold higher levels of the necessary energy compound adenosine triphosphate (ATP) during exercise. Creatine phosphate increases physical performance and minimizes exercise fatigue through the absorption of hydrogen ions released by muscles as lactic acid. Intense anaerobic exercise, such as weight lifting and sprinting, exhausts ATP storages and greatly increases the muscle's requirement for creatine. Jarrow FORMULAS® Creatine Monohydrate is made in a GMP facility in Germany.

Suggested Use: Take 1–6 capsules of Creatine Monohydrate per day, or as directed by your qualified health care consultant. Fruit juice enhances uptake and utilization of creatine monohydrate.

IngredientsPer Serving% DV
Creatine Monohydrate 800 mg *
* Daily Value Not Established


Notes: Creatine is synthesized in the liver from the amino acids arginine and glycine and stored in the major muscles, including cardiac and skeletal tissues. Once inside the muscle, creatine is phosphorylated to form creatine phosphate (CP), which, as a high energy substrate for the universal energy molecule assists in the contraction of the myofibrils (muscle fibers). Creatine Phosphate is utilized to maintain higher levels of ATP during exercise. Creatine Phosphate maximizes physical performance and reduces exercise fatigue by absorbing hydrogen ions released by muscles in the form of lactic acid. Intense anaerobic exercise, such as weight lifting and sprinting, depletes ATP and greatly increases the demand for creatine.* Jarrow FORMULAS® Creatine Monohydrate is made in a GMP facility in Germany.
