KLEAN CREATINE (11.1oz (315g Powder)
Klean Creatine is a product containing pure creatine to support muscle strength, performance, and recovery. If you take part in sports that require bursts of intense and repeated muscle power, creatine is clinically studied to help you increase your body strength, build muscle mass, and recover more quickly from strenuous exercise.‡
Klean Creatine by Klean Athlete® supports muscle strength, performance and recovery. If you take part in
sports that require bursts of intense and repeated muscle power, creatine is scientifically proven to help you
increase your body strength, build muscle mass, and recover more quickly from strenuous exercise. ‡
Klean Creatine is tested and certified by the NSF Certified for Sport® program, which was created to meet the
growing demands of athletes, coaches and healthcare professionals to certify that sports supplements are
safe and completely free from banned substances. Every product that carries the NSF Certified for Sport®
mark has undergone stringent laboratory testing to confirm content, purity and compliance. There is a potential for creatine supplementation to improve cognitive processing, especially in conditions characterized by brain creatine deficits, which could be induced by acute stressors (e.g., exercise, sleep deprivation) or chronic, pathologic conditions (e.g., creatine synthesis enzyme deficiencies, mild traumatic brain injury, aging, Alzheimer’s disease, depression). Despite this, the optimal creatine protocol able to increase brain creatine levels is still to be determined.

Creatine Supplementation and Brain Health
There is a robust and compelling body of evidence supporting the ergogenic and therapeutic role of creatine supplementation in muscle. Beyond these well-described effects and mechanisms, there is literature to suggest that creatine may also be beneficial to brain health (e.g., cognitive processing, brain function, and recovery from trauma).
Creatine is an energy carrier that is naturally present in your muscles, brain and other organs. In muscles,
creatine in the form of phosphorylcreatine acts as a reserve of high-energy phosphate to provide energy during
anaerobic exercise by regenerating ADP to ATP. By increasing the rate of creatine phosphorylation, ammonia
and lactate levels in the blood are lowered resulting in faster recovery from exercise. Creatine also promotes
growth factor signaling and glycogen storage to support gains in muscle strength, size and other adaptive
responses to training. Since creatine plays other vital roles within the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, it
is essential for many aspects of health. Animal muscle – such as fresh meat and fish – contains significant
amounts of creatine. Dairy products contain only small amounts. Since vegetables, grains, nuts and pulses do
not contain creatine, vegetarians are more likely to have suboptimal levels than meat eaters. The
recommended dose for creatine monohydrate is 3 – 5 grams per day. At this dosage, creatine levels in the
body will typically rise for three or four weeks before leveling off. With this approach, a loading phase is not
needed. Creatine may increase strength, fat free mass, and muscle morphology with concurrent heavy
resistance training more than resistance training alone. It also may be of benefit in other modes of exercise
such as high-intensity sprints or dynamic movements for improved performance. ‡
Mix 1 scoop daily with 8 oz. of water or beverage of choice. For best results, take this product with a
carbohydrate-containing beverage or food 30 minutes before exercise, or immediately following exercise with a
recovery beverage such as Klean Recovery™. On rest days, take 1 serving daily with a meal or as directed by
a trainer, coach, or healthcare professional.
