Creatine Nitrate Supplements

About Creatine Nitrate Supplements

Creatine Nitrate delivers the strength and power of creatine monohydrate, with the benefits of nitrate molecules. Nitrate is a naturally occurring chemical found in green leafy vegetables that can be converted to nitric oxide in the body. Nitric Oxide is a gas synthesized in blood vessels that has important biological functions, such as relaxing smooth muscles that control blood vessel dilation. As the blood vessels open up, more blood can pass through, increasing peripheral circulation and nutrient delivery to working muscles. 


Nitrates may enhance the muscle "pump" or muscle fullness experienced during and after a weight training session. This occurs due to the delivery of more blood to muscle tissue during exercise, resulting in muscle volumisation and pumps that last longer.


Nitrate supplementation has demonstrated increased time-to-exhaustion, showing improvements in exercise efficiency and reductions in oxygen consumption. This indicates improved oxygen utilisation and increased VO2. 


The creatine molecule itself—part of creatine nitrate—is helpful for rebuilding phosphocreatine and free creatine stores within muscle. Phosphocreatine stores are depleted during explosive exercise, as this molecule donates phosphorus to rebuild ADP (containing two phosphates) back up to ATP (contains three phosphates). This process of rebuilding energy via this process is unique, as it is not oxygen-requiring. 


ATP is the universal energy source and the phosphocreatine energy system is heavily relied upon during explosive and powerful movements, like sprinting and powerlifting. Research shows that for movements lasting up to three minutes, creatine can significantly enhance performance. However, the shorter the duration of the exercise, the more it is expected that significant results will be seen.


Though the creatine nitrate form of creatine is relatively new, research is indicating similar benefits and safety to creatine monohydrate, as reported in an article published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition in 2012. If you want improved nutrient delivery, better pumps and increased explosive strength and power, creatine nitrate is the supplement for you!
