PITTSBURGH, Dec. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Klean Athlete, a line of science-based, NSF Certified for Sport® nutritional supplements designed to give athletes a safe, effective nutritional foundation to fuel training and fortify performance, launched Klean Creatine to help athletes increase body strength, build muscle mass and recover more quickly from demanding exercise.* This latest addition to the Klean Athlete product line furthers the company's commitment to creating safe and effective supplements.
"For sprinters, stop-and-go sports and weight training, creatine may increase the hustle on the track or field and the muscle in the gym," said Leslie Bonci, a registered dietitian and sports nutrition expert. "Klean Athlete NSF Certified for Sport Creatine takes the guesswork out and puts the guarantee in to ensure the quality, safety and efficacy of the supplement."*
The majority of sports injuries are the result of minor trauma to muscles, ligaments and/or tendons. Creatine may increase strength, fat-free mass and muscle morphology with concurrent heavy resistance training more than resistance training alone to help athletes develop strong, reliable musclesi,ii,iii. The NSF Certified for Sport seal also means increased safety and confidence for elite athletes. Each product undergoes a meticulous testing and verification process, through which every product lot is screened for more than 245 athletic-banned substances based on the WADA list that could potentially compromise an athlete's career. This guarantees that when athletes see Klean Athlete products, they know they are consuming safer nutritional supplements and competing with the highest level of integrity and responsibility as an athlete.

"We look forward to introducing Klean Creatine for the 2017 season."
