Arouse :: Pre Workout Creatine Phosphate Blend
Amino Acid Pre-workout with pure Creatine Monohydrate
AROUSE is a powdered free form amino acid blend containing the dietary precursors used in the production of creatine phosphate. L-Arginine, L-Methionine and Glycine are combined in this pre workout formula with Creatine Monohydrate. Power energy relies on the supply of creatine phosphate (CP) to working muscles. CP regenerates Adenosine Di-Phosphate (ADP) back to Adenosine tri Phospate (ATP) which is then used by the body to fuel anaerobic energy requirements. The diagram below indicates the phosphocreatine cycle and shows the breakdown of ATP to ADP and then the regeneration back to ATP with the use of creatine phospate.
AROUSE is best used prior to power-based sports or where short, sharp power movements are needed and can be used as a replacement to caffeine based pre workout formulas for those sensitive to the effects associated with caffeine use.
Key Ingredients per 5.4g Serve: Creatine Monohydrate 3, L-Arginine 1.18, Glycine 220m,g L-Methionine 145mg
PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CREATINE
Creatine is a compound found in skeletal muscle that supports power energy production. It is stored in the muscle tissue in the form of creatine and creatine phosphate (CP) and plays an important role in exercise metabolism by providing a limited, but rapidly accessible source of fuel for the 'phosphocreatine energy system'. This system is utilised during short duration, high intensity exercise involving short, sharp & powerful movement patterns such as sprinting, jumping, lifting, throwing or tackling. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which is broken down into adenosine diphosphate (ADP) provides the energy for all muscle contractions. The role of CP is to facilitate rapid ATP regeneration as quickly as it is broken down to maintain maximal power output. However this can only be sustained for a very brief time (5-10 seconds) before CP stores are depleted and other energy systems with reduced power output have to be recruited to support the exercise bout or activity. Hence, fatigue that occurs during very high intensity exercise is associated with the depletion of muscle CP.
The body obtains creatine from dietary sources (animal proteins such as meat, poultry, eggs & fish) and internal biochemical synthesis from the amino acids L-Arginine, L-Methionine & glycine within the kidneys, liver & pancreas. The average diet incorporating animal proteins will normally provide around 1-2g of creatine daily. Extensive sports science research has shown that it is also possible to further increase the level of stored creatine within the muscle cell with creatine supplementation. In 1992, Harris et. al. demonstrated that oral creatine supplementation could increase muscle creatine levels by ~20%. Hence, specific dose protocols known as 'Creatine Loading' & 'Maintenance' programs have been developed in line with the scientific evidence supporting creatine supplementation.
Creatine Loading: Take 20-30g of creatine per day (in divided 5g doses over the day) for 5-7 days. It is best taken during meals & snacks as carbohydrate (~70g) supports creatine uptake through the stimulatory effect of insulin. The muscle cell has a creatine threshold or saturation point and the degree to which creatine loading increases total creatine & CP levels will vary among individuals. Once loaded, to help maintain maximum muscle creatine stores, it is advised to take a lower, daily maintenance dose.
Creatine Maintenance: Take 2-3g of creatine per day
