Did you know creatine is one of the only supplements proven to increase energy, muscle growth/recovery, and brain power? Yes, it’s true – it is not just for muscle-bound body builders anymore because almost everyone can take it for mental function, energy, and muscle mass. Suggestive dose is 5 grams a day which is about 1 teaspoon.
Studies have shown that creatine has been recognized as a product that delivers on its promise of improved strength. Signs of poor recovery include fatigue, poor workouts, prolonged muscle soreness, lack of increased strength, and lack of increased muscle mass.
Our body uses up about two grams of creatine per day, so replenishing your daily supply makes great sense for these 12 reasons:
Improves recovery after exercise and reduces soreness
One of the only supplements proven to increase energy
Aids hydration and muscle contraction
Aids fat metabolism and muscle growth
Balances cortisol after exercise
Increases energy and repair after exercise and surgery
Enhances brain health and can be used to treat concussion
Increases muscle volume
Improves bone health healing
Improves glucose tolerance
Creatine reduces age-related muscle loss
Increases muscle performance & muscle mass in vegetarians
Clear Medicine’s Clear Recovery formula is an excellent creatine source. Take half a scoop of this tasty raspberry-flavoured (naturally sweetened with beet extract) powder OR our newest unflavoured formula in water. The result? A stronger, leaner, healthier, more energized body! If you want to boost your energy, take Dr. Turner ND’s three month breakfast challenge. She has been drinking this yummy concoction for a while now and feels more energized, stronger and is never sore post workout! It also keeps you full longer so less likely to snack in-between meals. Clear Recovery (1/2 scoop) with1-2 tbsp of Clear Marine Collagen(straight from Nova Scotia!) and one to two scoops of whey protein – she uses Dream Protein but if you prefer a non-whey protein source you can choose pea or hemp sources. Mix in a shaker cup with as much water as you prefer (we prefer less water!) We would love to hear from you, if you’re on the 3-month challenge how are you feeling?
