Citrofos is a creatine citrate Creapure® supplement, highly soluble. It is in effervescent form, particularly bioavailable, effective and safe. Unlike the monohydrate form, buffered or not, which remains slightly soluble, creatine citrate ensures the highest assimilation of the active ingredient. The formulation of Citrofos is enriched with a sugar vehicle which can further promote the assimilation of creatine, especially to muscle tissue, and sodium bicarbonate, a gastric buffer. Creatine is in fact unstable at acidic pH of the stomach, where it tends to convert into creatinine, a substance that is toxic for our organism. The high bioavailability of the citrate form, joined to other formulation components, ensures a quick pass of creatine through the stomach, accelerates and improves its absorption. This results in a greater efficiency and in the absence of any gastrointestinal side effects, and allows to reduce the intake dose.
Creatine is a substance that is naturally present in our muscular tissue, in the form of phosphocreatine, and that acts as important energy reserve for the highest short and intense exertion. The oral supplementation of creatine contributes to increase the physiological concentration of phosphocreatine in the muscle tissue. Several studies confirm its capacity to delay the fatigue through a tampon effect on the lactic acid that is produced during the anaerobic exertion, and to facilitate the increase of the lean muscular mass.
Creatine is also an effective energy support, to sustain the activity of the heart and nervous system, as to be successfully used in heart failure and memory disorders. It is an excellent energy tonic, and it is ideal also for the ederly.
Citrofos® is indicated to improve the availability of energy in general, but more specifically in anaerobic sports, of short duration and high intensity (speed, weight lifting). Creatine supplementation is useful to support the cardiac tone and the mental performance.
Take 1 sachet daily, at least for 10 days, dissolved in 150 ml of water, between meals and possibly in the first part of the day, for a period ranging from 10 to 30 days. It is acceptable associating fruit and fruit juice, simple sugars, avoiding complex foods.
