Amplified Creatine 189 is a creatine supplement marketed by GNC. The supplement is taken by ingesting tablets instead of a common powder monohydrate. Creatine is a naturally occurring chemical in the body and is important for energy production in short-burst activities such as sprinting and weightlifting. In 2000, a round table of the American College of Sports Medicine, or ACSM, representatives concluded that creatine supplementation could improve performance, especially in activities that where short in duration and required repeated bouts. GNC claims that the new PEG-Creatine delivery system "allows the same benefits as regular creatine monohydrate at a much lower dose.” However, this statement is not supported by the FDA.
