Triangle of strength
Meet the true triangle of strength with 3 powerful corners in the form of Creatine, Maltodextrin and alpha-Lipoic Acid. Your high-intensity challenges get a new level of achievement, especially due to creatine*, which increases physical performance in successive bursts of short-term, high-intensity exercise. With a great supplement by your side to help you with your goals, now is the time to take a leap, to strive, to confront, to fall and rise again with a new sense of conquest. Now is the time to pick this triangle for a new angle of success!
*The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 3 g of creatine.
Although creatine can be found as a standalone product, it is often used with other nutrients. A prime example is the combination of creatine with carb complexes (like maltodextrin) for augmenting creatine muscle retention, mediated through an insulin response.
Whole body creatine retention
Percentage of whole body creatine retention after the ingestion of 5 g of creatine on four different occasions over 24 h along with 500 ml of placebo, protein-CHO, high CHO, or low CHO solutions. Values are means ± SE. *Significantly different from placebo, P < 0.05.*
Total muscle creatine stores
Approximate total levels of creatine (mmol/kg) in dry weight of muscle reported in the literature for vegetarians and individuals following a normal diet, and in response to creatine loading with or without carbohydrates (CHO) or CHO and protein (PRO). From Kreider and Jung.**

All the way up from the base
• Creatine is a substance found naturally in the body, particularly in muscle cells where it's involved in the process of energy production. It’s usually taken by athletes and bodybuilders who engage in successive bursts of short-term, high-intensity exercise.
• Maltodextrin is a complex carb derived from food and made up of glucose polymers. As it has a high glycemic index, it’s commonly used by athletes.
• alpha-Lipoic Acid, also known as ALA, is a form of fatty acid is produced in every single one of our cells. Athletes usually take it after workout and daily exercise.
