The Science Behind Neotine®
Neotine® is a medical-grade formulation of creatine, a compound produced naturally by the liver. Following production, creatine is absorbed into the tissues such as the brain, the skeletal muscles, the heart, the retina and various skin tissues. Creatine is then acted on by creatine kinase (CK).
The body's creatine kinase (CK) system -- one of a number of unique systems responsible for providing energy to living cells -- is designed to deliver energy to those tissues that have sudden and/or high energy demands such as the brain, skeletal muscles, the heart, and various skin tissues.
The CK system converts creatine to phosphocreatine, which, in turn, transforms adenosine diphosphate (ADP) to adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This occurs in the mitochondria ("Powerhouse of the Cell"). ATP, the basic energy source of the human body, then exits the mitochondria and is used to meet the immediate energy needs of the cell.
The body needs adequate amounts of creatine in order to maintain its health. Learn what happens when the body doesn't have enough creatine. Link
