CREA MAX is a carbohydrate drink with 4.6 g of Creatine citrate
to support intensive muscular exertions. The Creatine content
in muscles signiﬁ cantly determines the length of time that a
muscle can be strained to the maximum. Therefore with incre-
ased bodily exertion intake should be increased – to improve
performance and efﬁ ciency in weight training. Previously,
Creatine drinks could not simply be taken along as the Creatine
did not last for long and became ineffective.
Now there is CREA MAX from Multipower Professional. The highly effective Creatine-Citrate is not released until imme-diately prior to it being drunk – this occurs automatically when it is opened. Until it is opened, the Creatine is kept secure and dry in a safe in the tin. The special transport matrix then brings the Creatine-Citrate directly into the muscles. The effect of Creatine is known in bodybuilding:Increased performance and taut, hard muscles. PRODUCT ANALYSIS

Fast Acting Amino Drink
THE IDEAL POST-WORKOUT DRINK AMINO ACID PROFILE
per 100 g per bottle
Fast Acting Amino Drink provides all the nutrients that are required after training for building muscles. The muscles „cry out" for nutrients after a hard training session. On the one hand, they require amino acids as building blocks to repair and build the trained muscles. On the other, the emptied energy stores need to be reﬁ lled. Body builders also speak of anabolic windows in this phase. In other words, the muscles are in a heightened state of readiness to absorb nutrients. Fast Acting Amino Drink contains all the nutrients required for regeneration and growth. There are 30 g of whey protein per bottle which means fast absorption during maximum biological valency. The L-Glutamine present is contained in an easily utili- sable peptide form and also aids absorption into the body. WHEY PROTEIN INSTANT DRINK WITH WHEAT PROTEIN HYDROLYSATE Recommended intake
