Creatine Nitrate Supplements

About Creatine Nitrate Supplements

Creatine Nitrate delivers the strength and power gains of creatine monohydrate, with the benefits of a nitrate molecule. Nitrate is a naturally occurring compound found in green leafy vegetables that can be converted to nitric oxide in the body. Nitric Oxide is a gas synthesized within the blood vessels that has many important biological functions, one of which is to relax the smooth muscles that control blood vessel dilation. As the blood vessels open up, more blood can pass through, which increases peripheral circulation and nutrient delivery to working muscles. 


Nitrates may also enhance the muscle "pump" or muscle fullness effect experienced after a weight training session. This occurs due to the delivery of more blood to muscle tissue during exercise, resulting in a larger muscle size. This means muscle size can be further enhanced during bodybuilding training and post-workout pumps can last longer.


Nitrate supplementation has been demonstrated to increase time-to-exhaustion, showing improvements in exercise efficiency and reductions in oxygen consumption for the same workload. This indicates that oxygen utilisation was improved, which likely resulted in an increased VO2. 


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


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!
