DISODIUM SALT OF CREATINE PHOSPHATE is a chemical compound that is the sodium salt of phosphate creatine. Phosphate creatine is one of the metabolites of creatine, a naturally occurring organic compound present in living organisms. Creatine is commonly used as a dietary supplement, especially among athletes and physically active people.
Phosphate creatine, like creatine, is involved in the energy processes of muscle cells. When muscles need energy, ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is converted to ADP (adenosine diphosphate), releasing the energy needed for muscle contraction. Phosphate creatine is able to donate the phosphate group ADP, re-forming ATP and providing an additional source of energy for the muscles. Thanks to this, it can increase muscle endurance and improve athletic performance, especially in cardio and short-term exercises.
Importance for the diet:
Creatine phosphate disodium supplementation may be beneficial for physically active people, athletes or people doing intense exercise that aims to increase muscle mass, strength and endurance. It can also benefit the elderly, as the processes of phosphate creatine synthesis may be weakened with age.
Dosage: 3-5 g of creatine per day.
