Why Creatine should be in your matrix – did you know?

All vertebrates need creatine for their energy metabolism. Omnivores receive a part of it from their nutrition. Creatine is naturally present in meat and fish, however, only trace amounts of creatine are found in fish meal and meat meal. So, creatine is lost on the way from fresh meat to meat meals. Animals respond to this deficiency with low muscle creatine. Today´s feed has lost an essential biomolecule - it has lost creatine. Creamino technology brings back creatine to animal diets. This is energy for healthy growth.

Creatine is essential to build muscle and provides extra resistance, the only problem with supplementing creatine is the generation of the metabolite "creatinine" that causes kidney damage. The solution is alkaline creatine for animals with long life cycles and monohydrate for those with short life cycles.

I think you may be confused on the relationship between creatinine and kidney function. Blood and urinary creatinine are used as measures of kidney function. Numbers outside of the normal range are indicators of abnormal glomerular filtration rates. Creatinine is not the cause of the damage.

Creatine is not a practical supplement in animal feeds which are subjected to moist heat as applied in pelleting, expansion or extrusion. These processes rapidly destroy creatine. GAA, on the other hand, is very resistant to heat and moisture and has high retention in pelleted or extruded feeds.
