Purity’s EverStrong™ harnesses the muscle building power of Creatine along with key cofactors to optimize your strength and performance. This highly innovative formulation combines the elite Creapure® Creatine with Vitamin D, CoffeeBerry® with FruiteX-B®, calcium fructoborate. Creatine - the focus of more than 300 scientific studies-is now one of the most extensively researched dietary supplements in the field of sports nutrition and for good reason. Whether you are a man or a woman, when it comes to nutritionally supporting muscle strength, size, mass, recovery and even healthy brain function, Creatine is in a league of its own.* Creatine gives an athlete the edge, and because of this, Creatine supplementation has become a common practice among professional, collegiate, and amateur athletes and weightlifters for enhancing performance.
How Does Creatine Build Muscle?
If a cell needs energy, the "high-energy" ATP is converted to "low-energy" adenosine diphosphate (ADP). Similar to a "battery charger", creatine (phosphocreatine) amps up low-energy ADP up to high-energy ATP until ATP that has been converted from fat and carbohydrates is available. Because creatine supplementation increases the amount of creatine in muscle tissue, it critically promotes strength, size and muscle power.Creatine saturates your muscles with creatine phosphate a high-energy compound that boosts your cellular energy supply when you need to push out those last few reps in the gym. Creatine accomplishes this by helping to keep muscle cells supplied with ATP, the body's primary energy fuel. Without enough ATP, your muscles won't keep working as long, plain and simple. Power workouts may produce hundreds of muscular contractions, robbing your muscles of ATP. This is where creatine helps maximize your workout results. The liver converts creatine into creatine phosphate (phosphocreatine) which supplies high-energy phosphate molecules that regenerate ATP in muscle cells.
Creatine Helps Create More ATP in the Cells which Equals More Energy...
More ATP equals more energy, delayed fatigue, better endurance and more productive workouts. The payoff? The strength and muscle mass you're working so hard to achieve. Creatine also hydrates muscle cells with water, promoting muscle fiber growth. The bottom line is that creatine supplementation is one of the safest, most effective nutritional strategies at your disposal for amplifying a weightlifting or body building program, and it pays dividends in terms of promoting muscle size, mass and strength.*
Just in! Recent research has revealed that creatine supplementation helps boost brain function and mental performance, which is no surprise, since brain cells also have high requirements for ATP.*
Best of all, EverStrong™ gives you Creapure® Creatine monohydrate, the top- quality creatine proven safe and effective in more than 50 clinical trials. Creapure® has been studied extensively with no toxic effects. All studies on Creapure® have been conducted in accordance with internationally accepted guidelines and standards (FDA and EU) under GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) conditions.
Along with Creapure® Creatine, EverStrong™ provides Boron, Vitamin D and CoffeeBerry® to support optimal muscle strength, energy, endurance and recovery.
Patented Boron and CoffeeBerry
EverStrong™ contains FruiteX-B®, calcium fructoborate, a unique and patented form of the trace mineral boron found in fruit and vegetables. Boron is known to play an important role in the metabolism of vitamin D and steroid hormones.* EverStrong™ also includes CoffeeBerry®, a stellar antioxidant and healthy source of caffeine. CoffeeBerry®, is the whole coffee fruit, loaded with antioxidant polyphenols and other beneficial nutrients. One serving of EverStrong™ contains 50 milligrams of caffeine, the amount in about half a cup of coffee.
How to Use Creatine for Muscle Power:
Creatine can be taken daily, before or after workouts
More Creatine in Your Muscles Means More Muscle Power*
Creatine - Not Just for the Young Guys - Great for Older Adults Too!
Creatine is well-known for the impressive volume of scientific studies on its benefits for younger athletes. Current research now tells us that creatine can help older adults—both men and women—maintain muscle mass, strength and performance, which is vitally important for long-term health.* In fact, a recent analysis of data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey III (NHANES) uncovered a strong correlation between muscle mass and greater longevity.
Recent studies have found that older adults realize gains in muscle mass and strength with creatine supplementation. A meta-analysis of randomized placebo-controlled trials found that older people taking creatine along with a program of resistance training achieve better gains in total body mass and fat free mass, along with improvements in chest press and leg press performance, than they do with exercise alone. Another study tested the effect of creatine taken by older adults either before or after a workout. Either way, creatine produced increases in lean body mass, muscle thickness and body strength over a 12-week period.*
Older women also do well on creatine supplementation. A group of older women engaged in a 12-week resistance training program with or without creatine supplements. Just as it did in men, creatine produced gains in fat free mass, muscle mass and strength tests.*
How about creatine for elderly people who may not have access to a resistance training program? A recent journal paper says it may indeed be effective, citing evidence that creatine supplementation helps maintain muscle mass and strength in the elderly, without associated training.*
Creatine Supports Cognitive Function*
Creatine does more than just help build muscle. Studies reveal that creatine supplementation supports cognitive processing in both young and old alike. Creatine supplementation increases the brain’s creatine supply, which is important for neuropsychological performance.*
Creatine Improves Muscle Power*
In a controlled clinical trial, researchers evaluated the influence of creatine loading (high-dose, short-duration supplementation) on muscle power in young males.1 Twenty young men ingested either 20 grams of creatine monohydrate a day or a placebo over a 7-day period. Compared to the placebo group, men taking creatine monohydrate gained a statistically significant 5.4 percent increase in muscle power. This showed that creatine monohydrate boosts the body’s ability to produce ATP, during and in-between exercise.
Creatine Increases Muscle Strength and Decreases Muscle Fatigue*
Research confirms that short-term high-dose creatine supplementation immediately followed by long-term low-dose supplementation increases muscular strength in young males.2 In one study, twenty-three young men were divided into two groups, a creatine group and a placebo group. The creatine group ingested five grams of creatine monohydrate daily for 5 days, followed by two grams of creatine monohydrate for six weeks. Individuals in both groups followed a resistance-training program. Creatine improved arm flexor muscular strength as well as upper arm muscle area increase. Fat-free mass was also increased in the creatine monohydrate group.
In another recent study of 20 healthy individuals, investigators found that low-dose, long-duration creatine supplementation decreases fatigue in healthy adults. The researchers examined the effect of low-dose creatine supplementation, at a dose of approximately 2.3 grams of creatine per day, on several fatigue and physiological parameters. Strength, muscle fatigue and blood creatine concentrations were determined prior to and after creatine ingestion. Six-week creatine supplementation caused significant increases in blood creatine levels, as well as improved fatigue resistance.
Creatine Increases Lean Body Mass*
In one of the early long-term creatine studies, researchers found that creatine loading and long-term creatine supplementation resulted in a sustained fat-free mass increase.4 For this study, 20 young men ingested either a high-dose creatine supplement (20 grams per day) for 5 days (loading phase) or the placebo. The loading phase was then immediately followed by a low-dose maintenance phase (2 grams of creatine per day) for 6 weeks. Creatine loading resulted in statistically significant increases in total body creatine (32%), muscle free creatine (51%), and phosphocreatine (25%) levels. Creatine ingestion also produced statistically significant gains in fat-free body mass during the loading phase.
