Why use Creatine + Glutamine + Beta-Alanine
Creatine. Glutamine. Beta-Alanine.
Whether you lead a healthy lifestyle or are just beginning, you have probably heard of these three names. If you are shopping for supplements, you will see these on a variety of supplement websites and in stores. You might have heard that they are good for you, but do these three really have a positive effect on your body if consumed? It may be difficult to decide on a supplement, and with so many unhealthy options out there it can be hard to decide if its good for you. So what is Creatine, Glutamine, and Beta-Alanine all about?  I decided to do the research for you!


Creatine Monohydrate:

Creatine Monohydrate Powder

Naturally found in our bodies, creatine can be produced in the liver and kidneys from amino acids. When you supplement with creatine monohydrate you increase your creatine phosphate levels, thus giving yourself more energy potential for heavy/powerful exercises. Creatine Monohydrate provides creatine phosphate in your muscles. When you supplement with creatine monohydrate you increase your creatine phosphate levels, thus giving yourself more energy potential for heavy/powerful exercises.
  • Increase Muscular Strength and Output Levels
  • Increased Recovery Time
  • Reduced Muscular Fatigue
  • Helps Support Protein Synthesis (which helps muscles grow)
  • Can be taken every day, and even on off days. (Can be considered a daily supplement.) This ensures that you maintain consistently elevated levels of creatine in your muscle tissue



L-Glutamine Muscle Recovery Formula

L-Glutamine is an essential amino acid used in the synthesis of protein which supports muscle production and is a muscle recovery formula. Since amino acids are the building blocks of protein, Glutamine helps your muscles strengthen and rebuild during recovery.  L-Glutamine also boosts your immune system after extended events like a marathon.
Glutamine is critical for many body functions including regulating cellular metabolism and helping maintain healthy body acid balance. Cortisol levels are elevated post strenuous activity and supplementing with L-Glutamine has been shown to reduce cortisol levels.
  • Supports Muscle Function and Recovery
  • Free-Form Amino Acid
  • Provides Fuel to Many Different Cells in The Body
  • Promotes Athletic Performance Recovery From Endurance Exercise
  • Promotes Muscle Growth and Decreases Muscle Deteriorating
  • Aids with Memory, Focus, and Concentration



Beta-Alanine is a non-essential amino acid that is used to synthesize Carnosine in the muscle cells. Carnosine acts as a PH buffer during exercise. Hydrogen ions are the byproducts to intense exercise, which causes the burning sensation you feel in your muscles during exercise. This makes the blood more acidic. Increasing Carnosine levels in the muscle cells will help to delay acid build up and muscle fatigue, allowing you to train harder and longer.
  • Boosts Muscular Anaerobic Endurance
  • Delays Lactic Acid Build Up
  • Reduces Muscle Fatigue
  • Free Form Amino Acid
  • Promotes The Increase of Muscle Mass
  • Improves Physical Performance During High-Intensity Exercise
  • Enhances Aspects of Endurance Performance & Increases Aerobic Endurance
