Creamino is a patent protected preparation of guanidinoacetic acid (GAA). GAA is the direct endogenous precursor of creatine in all vertebrates. The body produces GAA from the amino acids glycine and arginine, and creatine from GAA and methionine. Creatine is an essential biomolecule for proper function of energy transfer and supply. It directly reloads ATP for energy supply and prevents formation of reactive oxygen substances in times of high energy demand. Creamino can increase creatine levels in the body by approximately 20 - 30%. Therefore, creatine is of primary importance in tissues with high energy demands, such as skeletal muscle, heart, brain, sperm and immune cells. Creatine is a natural constituent in meat or fish, but does not withstand extensive heat treatment during pelleting or extrusion.
Creamino is a unique source of creatine activity that replaces dietary creatine and spares arginine.

Guanidinoacetic acid – the precursor of creatine, synthesized from Arginine and Glycine
Creamino contains Guanidino Acetic Acid (GAA) for supplementation of broiler and turkey feeds. The kidneys naturally synthesize GAA, consuming important nutrients and energy. By taking in GAA from Creamino supplemented feed, this step is skipped. Direct consumption of GAA ensures an optimal supply with creatine and spare nutrients, such as arginine, for other processes (arginine sparing). Enhanced creatine levels can improve feed conversion or enable a reduction in the proportion of expensive, energy-rich ingredients (e.g. fats and oils).
Further benefits are a lower mortality rate and increased heat tolerance.
