Jarrow Formulas

  • Good for muscles, including the heart.
  • For maximum physical performance.
  • Helps with exercise fatigue.
  • Vegetarian formula.

Creatine is stored in the major muscles, including the heart, and naturally synthesized in the liver through the amino acids arginine and glycine. The muscles transform creatine into creatine phosphate, which is a high energy compound that assists in muscle contraction. Creatine phosphate is utilized to reach higher levels of the required energy compound adenosine triphosphate (ATP) during exercise. Creatine phosphate increases physical output and decreases exercise fatigue through the absorption of hydrogen ions released by muscles as lactic acid. Intense anaerobic exercise, such as weight lifting and sprinting, depletes ATP storages and significantly increases the muscle's need for creatine. Jarrow FORMULAS® Creatine Monohydrate is made in a GMP facility in Germany.

One scoop of Creatine Monohydrate equals the amount of creatine found in over 2.2 pounds (1 kg) of uncooked red meat. Creatine Monohydrate is the most economic, static and bioavailable form of creatine.

Quality Assurance: Purity of product assured by HPLC (High Pressure Liquid Chromatography).

Suggested Use: Stir 1 scoop (6 grams) of Creatine Monohydrate into a full glass of water or fruit juice, or as directed by your qualified health care consultant. Glucose, as found in certain fruit juices, enhances uptake and utilization of creatine monohydrate. Creatine Monohydrate easily mixes into fluid.

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 is a high energy substrate that assists in the contraction of the myofibrils (muscle fibers). Creatine Phosphate is utilized to maintain higher levels of ATP (energy molecules) 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.* One scoop of Creatine Monohydrate yields the equivalent of creatine found in 2.2 pounds (1 kg.) of uncooked red meat. Creatine is the most economical, stable and best absorbed form of creatine. Jarrow FORMULAS® Creatine Monohydrate is made in a GMP facility in Germany. Quality Assurance: Purity of product assured by High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC).


Caution: Do not use if kidney or liver function is impaired, or if using prescribed medication. Do not use during pregnancy or lactation, or if under the age of 18. Do not exceed suggested usage. Keep out of the reach of children.
