Monohydrate: Facts about Creatine & Side Effects by Dr Anthony &

My name is Dr Edwin Anthony.  I am a Founder & Director
of EA Clinic.  I specialise in body contouring, practising from my private
clinic on 99 Harley Street, London.

I was born in London and trained in Medicine and Surgery at the prestigious Trinity College Dublin,
qualifying in 1999. I am a Cosmetic Doctor and a Hair Transplant Surgeon.
  Additionally, I completed my advanced training in Aesthetic Medicine
in 2009. However, I am not here to talk about cosmetic surgery today.

What is Creatine?

Creatine is a special kind of amino acid made from two common amino
acids found in the protein you eat.  Creatine
serves as a short-lived emergency backup to your cells energy storage molecule,
ATP (adenosine triphosphate).  The vast
majority of energy-requiring processes inside the cell, require ATP. When cells
and the tissues they form do anything energetic (e.g. muscle contraction), this
also requires ATP.  When you burn
calories, you are doing so to regenerate your ATP pool.


What is Creatine?

Creatine is an unique type of amino acid made from 2 typical amino acids located in the healthy protein you consume. Creatine works as a short-term emergency situation back-up to your cells power storage space particle, ATP (adenosine triphosphate).

When your cells are striving as well as ATP degrees are reduced, creatine work as a mobile battery charger, restoring ATP at its very own cost. This allows your skeletal muscular tissues to do effort such as sprinting or resistance training a bit much longer, which is something that a professional athlete in training is clearly seeking to do.

Burning calories to regrow ATP creates natural acids- a little carbonic acid in cardiovascular problems and also a whole lot of lactic acid in anaerobic problems. Creatine neutralises acid, once more at its very own expenditure, to assist buffer cells versus reduced pH.

Natural sources of Nitrates include
foods such as Beetroot and leafy green vegetables.  In
human bodies, Nitrates
breakdown to form the nitrites which are
circulated within our systems. Our bodies convert the stored nitrites into
nitric oxide (NO) when needed.

Physically active people can gain
numerous benefits from elevated levels of NO in their system; however, Nitrates
are not commercially sold as dietary supplements.

This is due to the regulatory
restrictions that prevent the use of high amounts of sodium nitrates as food
additives used for meat products.


•             Enhances
the production of ATP

•             Improves
blood circulation

•             Improves
anaerobic and aerobic endurance

•             Enhances muscles & Boost work

The optimal dose is based on your weight; however, to get the desired
benefits, you should consume about 600mg to 800mg at least two hours before
your workout, ONLY to be taken on training days.

BCAA – What You Need To Know …

BCAA – What You Need To Know

Branched Chained Amino Acids (BCAAs) are very popular
with bodybuilders and powerlifters. There are 3 types of BCAAs are; leucine,
isoleucine, and also valine which make up as much as 33% of muscle mass cells.

They’re called “branched chained amino acids” just
as a result of their chemical framework– we get the BCAA’s from our diet as
the body cant produce them!

Studies have shown that
supplementation with BCAA’s during athletic performance may reduce fatigue and
prolong exercise endurance by increasing the lactic threshold of your body.
When we work out, lactic acid is produced which makes you “feel the burn” and
eventually forces you to finish your workout.

By supplementing with
BCAA’s you can ensure there are always enough free amino acids available to aid
in the recovery process and reduce overall catabolism (the breakdown of muscle

There is a lot more research that supports the usage of BCAAs than most other supplements currently available.

Calorie Deficit will make you look awesome onstage, on the beach, and to your friends, but it can also reduce your muscle mass.

While BCAA supplementation may be beneficial for gaining muscle, BCAAs are especially helpful for maintaining mass while on a calorie-deficit diet. They’re particularly useful for bodybuilding competitors who take their physiques to the lean extreme.

The phrase BCAAs knowns as to three amino acids, isoleucine, valine and leucine, which are differentiated by their distinct branched structure. In addition to serving as three of the 20 building blocks for proteins (such as those found in muscle fibres), BCAAs are also used as fuel during intense exercise.

There is so much Information on Creatine with all of misinformation. The Facts in the Video are well researched, please do watch the video below:



You should Beetroot Juice or Arugula (Rocket) or any other Leafy Greens, which are high in Nitrates along with some Vitamin C. In your body Nitrates turn into Nitric Oxide, which has several benefits for your body! Try it for a month!

5 Benefits of Beetroot/ Nitric Oxide Supplement, in detail:

•             Enhances the production of ATP. ATP/ADP are best described as they energy
currencies of the cell; and their exchange rate determines how much energy we
have. The calories you burn are used to convert Adenosine diphosphate (ADP)
into Adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the activated form. In this state,
ATP becomes abundant and powers the physical activities of the body.  

•             Improves
blood circulation (V
asodilation makes your blood vessels expand). Greater amounts of Nitric
Oxide you have circulating, will lead to a better muscle pump.

•             Improves anaerobic and aerobic

•             Enhances
muscles recovery. Improved blood flow allows nutrients to be shuttled into the

work output by reducing fatigue.
