Creapure® - Effective and Pure
The purity of creatine is just as important as its effectiveness. The AlzChem Trostberg GmbH developed a very safe process for manufacturing an ultrapure creatine product in their own production facility in Germany. This, plus regular internal and external quality controls along with ongoing scientific analysis, all helps to ensure that the quality of each production batch is the best possible.
AlzChem markets creatine monohydrate under the Creapure® brand name to major producers of sports nutrition supplements around the world. Manufacturers who use the Creapure® logo on their packaging are showing that their product contains a premium-quality ingredient of trusted origin from Germany.
When deciding to purchase any creatine product, information about the production and purity plays an important role.
How is the quality and purity of Creapure® guaranteed?
Creapure® is subject to strict quality controls. AlzChem AG ensures the highest safety and quality standards in its Creapure® creatine product. Each batch of Creapure® is individually tested for purity before leaving the manufacturing facility.
Creapure® is listed on the Cologne List®. This means that it is regularly tested at the Olympiastützpunkt Rheinland laboratory in Germany for any contamination from steroids or stimulants.
Creapure® is manufactured according to the strict standards and procedures of the German pharmaceutical and food industry. This means that it is GMP (good manufacturing practices) compliant, which generally ensures a high quality manufacturing processes. The principles of the HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) approach apply. These are designed to identify and eliminate any sources of contamination or disruption in the processes. Finally, a dedicated facility was built for Creapure® to help eliminate the risk of cross-contamination and contamination by other products.
In addition, Creapure® is produced in compliance with Jewish and Muslim food regulations - and is both Kosher and Halal certified.
Not all creatine supplements are subject to the same strict manufacturing standards as Creapure®. Look for the Creapure® logo as a seal of quality.
Long-term performance with Creapure®
- Provides energy in the form of creatine phosphate
- Affects performance in a positive way
- Increased strength & muscle growth
- Shorter recovery times
Scientific research has shown that using creatine as a dietary supplement improves physical performance during short, intensive and repetitive exercises. The use of creatine can help athletes train more intensively, resulting in improved muscle growth and increased strength.
Creatine has a special function in the supply of energy to the cells of the body, which becomes important above all with short-term, intensive and repetitive rapid loads. There are reports of people who regularly take creatine and describe that they feel more permanently fit and more powerful. In addition, it is possible that creatine supports the regeneration process between the training units or after the athletic endurance performance.
There are indications that creatine acts as an antioxidant, by reducing cellular damage caused by oxygen radicals. Anti-inflammatory effects were also observed in the first cell-based experiment.
It remains necessary to examine to what extent the results of training and exercise for endurance sports lead to noticeable positive effects. In addition, creatine helps to stabilize cellular pH (acidity) and plays an important role in balancing the different aerobic and anaerobic energy sources (eg glycolysis) which are available to the cells.
Recommended Creatine Intake
Taking creatine monohydrate as a dietary supplement boosts the amount of creatine in the body. There are many proven benefits of taking moderate amounts of creatine. We recommend a daily creatine dosage of 3 to 5 g with sufficient liquid. This amount (3 g) of creatine has been judged to be safe by The European Food Safety Authority. An expert panel in the U.S. has indicated 5 g. The most common form of creatine is creatine monohydrate. Depending on the preference of the individual, this can be taken as a powder, a chewable tablet or as capsules. As with any dietary supplement, purity is particularly important with creatine. Therefore, you should only use creatine products that come from known and reliable sources.
