Optimal intestinal calcium (Ca) absorption is necessary for the protection of bone and the prevention of osteoporosis. Ca absorption can be represented as the sum of a saturable pathway and a non-saturable pathway that is primarily dependent upon luminal Ca concentration. While models have been proposed to describe these transport components, significant(More)
Numerous creatine formulations have been developed primarily to maximize creatine absorption. Creatine ethyl ester is alleged to increase creatine bio-availability. This study examined how a seven-week supplementation regimen combined with resistance training affected body composition, muscle mass, muscle strength and power, serum and muscle creatine(More)
Creatine monohydrate has become one of the most popular ergogenic sport supplements used today. It is a nonessential dietary compound that is both endogenously synthesized and naturally ingested through diet. Creatine ingested through supplementation has been observed to be absorbed into the muscle exclusively by means of a creatine transporter, CreaT1. The(More)
Background A typical oral creatine supplementation regimen involving a 5-7 day “loading phase” of 20-25 grams/day followed by a “maintenance phase” of 5-7 grams/day is typically considered as necessary to adequately saturate skeletal muscle as a lesser dose of creatine is insufficient in doing so. This rationale also assumes that the majority, if not all,(More)
