Creatine is an endogenous substance in the human body and is present in every cell.
As creatine phosphate plays a central role in the storage and transport of energy in all cells, creatine is of great importance for humans.
Creatine in the human body
Creatine is broken down to creatinine and excreted via the kidneys.
Around 1-2% of the human creatine store is depleted daily, and it can be more during exertion (exercise, stress, illness, ...). Part of this creatine loss is compensated by endogenous synthesis, the rest should be supplied via food (animal products) or supplementation.
Sufficient creatine phosphate depots are important for all energy-intensive body functions.
More and more studies are proving the beneficial effects of creatine in a wide variety of areas outside of sport.
For this reason, we have developed an optimised creatine monohydrate for the food and health sectors.
Where is Creavitalis® used?
Creatine is a component of a balanced diet and is not supplied via plant foods, as creatine naturally occurs only in foods of animal origin: meat and fish. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to a sufficient creatine intake in a low-meat diet.
Creavitalis® is pure creatine monohydrate, which can be used as an ingredient in functional foods.
The Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety confirmed on 30 May 2023 that creatine monohydrate is not classified as a "novel food". It therefore does not fall under the Novel Food Regulation.
