Creatine Excell (100% Creapure®) by HSN is made of creatine monohydrate with the Creapure® seal, which certifies the pharmaceutical degree of quality and purity of the product.
The body produces around 2 grams of creatine daily. It is synthesized in the pancreas, kidneys and liver using the amino acids glycine, arginine and methionine, which are mainly present in the skeletal muscle.
It stores it in the energy reserves which are used during high intensity efforts.
There are two different ways to do so: Around a 60% in its phosphorylated form, also known as phosphocreatine (CP); whereas the remaining 40% is stored in its free form. The latter is the one that will be available to perform a very intense effort at any time, like a sprint.
It is naturally available in food such as meat, fish or eggs, but their content is so low that we cannot take advantage of its effects.
Have its effects been thoroughly studied? Creatine is possibly the supplement with most studies that support its use, confirming what most athletes claim, its efficacy as an ergogenic support.
There are many athletes who wonder what are the differences between these two supplements.
Creapure® creatine is produced following the most demanding pharmaceutical degree standards. These include the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) which ensures the quality of the manufacturing process; Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), designed to identify and eliminate the sources of contamination that can occur during the manufacturing process in a facility that has been specially designed to prevent the risk of cross-contamination.
Let's follow the path creatine follows in your organism: the muscle cells will transport it until they reach the bloodstream. Then, it is transformed into creatine phosphate whose objective will be to provide an energy boost at specific moments. A good example would be strength workouts or explosive sports.
What is the objective of creatine phosphate? It helps to recharge the ATP or Adenosine Triphosphate reserves, which is a molecule that provides the power and energy that we need to perform muscle contraction.
ATP is the first source of energy that our body uses in the first moments of a high intensity and short submaximal effort (from five to ten seconds). After that period, these energy deposits are emptied, and it will take some time to recharge them, synthesizing ATP once again.
What will your body use during that time? Glucose. However, the rate of this substance will be slower and, therefore, you will not be able to achieve the same intensity.
Another property of creatine is that it keeps the cells properly hydrated, while it also produces a powerful stimulus for the protein synthesis. The result? More muscle growth.
Other benefits for athletes are:
- Providing neuroprotection.
- Reducing the sarcopenia.
- Controlling the glucose levels.
Yes, since it stimulates a group of cells known as 'satellite cells' which are used for hypertrophy. In other words, muscle growth. Moreover, it seems that creatine signals the expression of genes related to muscle anabolism or growth.
From all this information, we can conclude that creatine can enhance the benefits of weightlifting at a cell level, which would result in more muscle mass gains for the body.

I always combine it with my pre-workout and it does not taste bad at all. I have felt its effects when it comes to recovering between sets, which has improved my performance significantly.HSN Sport Nutrition and Natural Dietetics
A must for bodybuilders
As a bodybuilder, this is an indispensable supplement since it helps to increase the strength and cell volume, if you are looking for that esthetic effect.HSN Sport Nutrition and Natural Dietetics
Excellent price-quality relation for a creatine. It is quite useful, regardless of the phase you are in, either bulking or cutting, it improves the performance in general.HSN Sport Nutrition and Natural Dietetics
