The anti-aging benefits that Encour may provide include:

 

1. Improved functional capacity for movement, which may help prevent falls.

 

2. Better focus, memory and recall while aging normally

 

3. Improved brain energy availability and cognitive functions while aging normally

 

4. Improved strength, endurance, and cognitive function for vegetarians and vegans compared to omnivores.

 

5. May help maintain healthy bones as we age

 

6. Better balance and stability for standing and walking due to enhanced muscle strength

 

7. Some studies suggest creatine may help maintain cholesterol and triglyceride levels already within a normal range

 

8. May help manage blood sugar levels already within the normal range

 

9. Faster recovery from daily physical activites

 

10. Enhanced recovery after strenuous physical activities

 

11. Increased muscle power, strength and endurance

 

12. Increased muscle mass and improvement in ration of body fat to muscle

 

Many of these benefits will be enhanced with the addition of exercise training, a well-balanced diet, and other healthy lifestyle choices. 

Meet the scientists behind the groundbreaking studies which fuel our innovation.

These world renowned scientists have published many studies on the anti-aging benefits of pure German creatine, the main ingredient in our line of Encour! products. They are from some the world’s leading research and learning institutions and are recognized as experts in the fields of human nutrition and athletic performance. They also have proven benefits of creatine supplementation for a broader population.

 

Dr. Richard Kreider states, “We all agree that the best source of creatine for dietary supplements is the same active ingredient found in Encour - pure creatine monohydrate from Germany.” Two of the major studies authored by Kreider and others are published and available are from the International Society of Sports Nutrition and Nutrients.

The science behind Encour includes 300+ studies

As we reach adulthood, our creatine level falls. It’s important because creatine is a key energy source that powers our muscle, brain and tissue cells. Age-related creatine loss can develop over time, leaving you feeling tired and unfocused. It’s the result of less storage of creatine within skeletal muscle and less efficient digestion of protein.

The solution is Encour, made with the world’s purest German creatine. You can feel better after as little as four weeks of daily use. Longer term, your creatine levels can be maintained at 100% capacity as you take Encour every day. Then you can fully experience the anti-aging benefits of Encour.
