  • How it works

    Your Encour! is a new bioenergetic dietary supplement, so you'll find answers to your questions about how the product works in the human body here. Please let us know if you have a question that is not listed here. We want you to be informed!

    • What is the science behind how Your Encour!™ provides energy to your body?

      Answer: The energy comes from improved availability and amounts of energy stored at the cellular level.

      o

      We obtain energy by consuming food, including the nutrients that are the building blocks for creatine your own body makes, meat and fish that contain creatine, or a creatine supplement like Your Encour! ™.

      o

      The “molecular currency” of energy transfer inside cells in the human body is called ATP (adenosine triphosphate). If energy is required with the movement of muscles, the use of your brain or nervous system cells, or other activities of your body, ATP can release a phosphate group – resulting in ADP (adenosine diphosphate).

      o

      Creatine is able to move freely within the cell. It’s like a mobile charging station that is always ready to supply energy in a flash whenever it is needed. Creatine recharges cells by converting the ADP back into ATP. For a technical review of the metabolic role of creatine, you can find information here.

      o

      The process of recharging your cells in your body takes time. It doesn't happen immediately. That's why we recommend that you take Your Encour! daily so that your cells are recharged fully, and you always have energy available. 

      o

      Additionally, each cell is not able to store unlimited amounts of ATP. There's only so much capacity in each cell, so providing more support for the bioenergetic processes of your body each day is essential.

      o

      That is why creatine in the form of phosphocreatine has such an important role to play in energy supply. Phosphocreatine can be stored in the cell in larger quantities. In addition, it is able to donate a phosphate group to ADP, thereby enabling the fastest possible regeneration of the ATP. You feel this difference when you recover faster after exercise or activity when using Your Encour!™.

    • You call Your Encour!™ a Bioenergetic supplement. What does that mean?

      Bioenergetics refers to a specific area of biology related to the process of how cells transform energy by producing, storing or consuming adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
      Your Encour!™ works specifically to impact 
      ATP.

      O

      Our living bodies are complex wonders of biology powered by bioactive compounds. We use the word Bioenergetic to describe our supplement Your Encour!™ because it specifically impacts ATP by transforming ADP with the addition of creatine. This terminology is more accurate than simply using the generic term “dietary supplement”. For compliance with FDA regulations, we must include the term dietary supplement in our packaging and promotional materials.

      O

      Your Encour!™ Bioenergetic dietary supplement supports a healthy body because it helps to power your cells in a unique way. Other supplements may contain caffeine, sugar, or other ingredients that can make you feel energized for a time, but then you crash. Our product supplies real support to your whole system, through the supplementation of creatine, so you don’t feel let down after taking it. Your body uses creatine in the form of phosphocreatine to specifically impact ATP.

      O

    • Your Encour!™ says it contains Vitamin C. What amount is included?

      In one serving, you will receive:

      o 

      100% of your daily Vitamin C requirement from Your Encour!™ PowerStix™ drink powder and 50% of your daily Vitamin C requirement from Your Encour!™ PowerTabs™ chewable tablets.

      o

      Your Encour!™ Bioenergetic supplement is designed to help you enjoy taking your supplement, and the tart flavor is enhanced by Vitamin C. There is a difference in the formulations for a practical reason.

       o

      We have virtually unlimited space in our drink powder because you dissolve the contents of the PowerStix™ in water or other liquid. This means we can put 100% of your daily requirement into that formulation.

       o

      Space is limited in our chewable tablets called PowerTabs™ so there’s only room to fit 50% of your daily requirement in this formulation.

       o

      Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and supports a healthy immune system. We encourage you to enjoy a diet with plenty of citrus, fruits and vegetables, but a little extra C doesn’t hurt.   Click here and here for more.

       o

    • Does Your Encour!™contain antioxidants?

      Yes, you can find two antioxidants in Your Encour!™. First is Vitamin C, which is a well-known antioxidant.

      o

      Second is creatine, which has antioxidant effects in living cells. 

      o

      You likely have heard the term antioxidants used in referring to compounds that aid the body’s immune system. These substances reduce damage due to oxygen, which can be caused by free radicals. They are often found in nuts, colorful fruits and vegetables, and juice, coffee, tea and wine.

      o

      In general, antioxidants may help prevent or delay cell damage, which may play a role in your health. Specific research into the use of creatine as an antioxidant is limited.

      o

      In a study titled Creatine supplementation affords cytoprotection in oxidatively injured cultured mammalian cells via direct antioxidant activity by Piero Sestili et.al, the researchers conclude that creatine is a mild, although significant, antioxidant.

      o

      In another study from Italy, titled Differential effect of creatine on oxidatively injured mitochondrial and nuclear DNA Chiara Guidi et. al., the authors credit creatine with similar antioxidant properties, and it is suggested that the protection creatine affords cells against injury could help prevent certain effects of aging.

      o

    • Can I get creatine from food instead of from a supplement like Your Encour!™?

      Absolutely you could, but you may have to change your diet radically to consume the same amount of creatine as you will find in Your Encour!™. 

      o

      You need to have your stored energy provided by creatine at maximum level each and every day. Inside the body, creatine gets broken down every day into creatinine. This loss of creatine can be partly compensated by your body's natural creatine production or through your diet. To insure your creatine level remains at the maximum, supplements are often the most reliable approach. You can get the exact, measured amount of the particular nutrient you need.

      o

      You can also get creatine from food, but the amount you can consume is limited.

       o

      Fish and meat products are the main natural sources of creatine. These contain concentrations of between 3 and 5 grams per kilo. This means that you would have to consume the equivalent of ten 16 ounce steaks every day (roughly one kilogram of meat) to obtain the 3 grams of creatine provided by Your Encour!™ . 

      o

      What about other food sources? With a concentration of roughly 0.1 gram per kilogram, dairy products do not supply your needs as they contain very little creatine. 

      o

      Only traces of creatine can be found in plant-based foods. This creates a real challenge to vegetarians and vegans. Studies show significant additional benefits of taking the creatine found in Your Encour!for people on plant-based diets. 

      o

    • How long will it take for Your Encour!™ to start working?

      Within 2 weeks you should notice a difference, but within 4 weeks of daily use, you should experience the maximum effect. 

      o

      It will take a little while before you start to feel the effect of Your Encour!™. If you take it on a daily basis, you can expect to achieve maximum creatine levels after around three to four weeks. Why so long? It takes some time for your body to restore creatine levels to those of your youth. 

      o

      What might you experience? 

      o

      First, you may notice your muscles are a little fuller than before. This initial response is attributed to the water that your cells take in along with the active ingredient in Your Encour!™. Older adults may see fewer fine wrinkles and lines in their skin. You might be thirstier than before, which is your body’s way of getting the water that your muscles need. 

      o

      Second, you may notice you don’t tire as easily as before. This may happen if you stay up later than normal, then feel well rested the next morning. Or if you go for a longer walk than normal and don’t feel different than when you walked a shorter distance. 

      o

      Third, you may see its full effect with a noticeable increase in performance when you exercise or participate in an activity. In addition, you may recover more quickly after exertion, as your body has the resources to repair the damage readily available. 

      o

    • What happens when I digest Your Encour!™?

      You get essential nutrients from Your Encour!™ to supply the energy you need by providing creatine in an easy to digest drink or chewable tablet. 

      o

      Our recipe contains just the essential ingredients we need to make a great tasting product that tastes great and is easy to use. So your body gets creatine it needs from the active ingredient creatine monohydrate in Your Encour!™. 

      o

      Your body takes time to ingest and transport this vital nutrition to your body. It’s the reason why we recommend taking Your Encour!™ every day. Creatine is essential. The body of an adult contains between 80 and 130 grams of creatine. However, one to two percent of the creatine store gets broken down into creatinine each day and excreted via the kidneys.

      o 

      To remain healthy, your body needs to replace creatine every day. It makes some of what you need, but as you live longer, the amount of creatine available in your body diminishes over time. You can replace it with Your Encour! and regain the energy you once had.

      o

      In contrast to carbohydrates, proteins or fats, Your Encour!™ has no calorific value. But the active ingredient in Your Encour!(TM) plays key role in energy metabolism at the cellular level.– and so is not just important for the skeletal muscles, but also for the heart, brain and various other organs. And the added Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can help you stay healthy. 

      o

  • How to use

    Using Your Encour!™ is easy. But if you want to learn more about some of the best ways to use it, you'll find those questions and answers here.

    • How often should I take Your Encour!™?

      We encourage you to take Your Encour™ daily to maintain your energy level consistently. 

      o

      The process of restoring your energy at a cellular level is accomplished over time with Your Encour! ™. Take it with food or without. It is refreshing after your activity or exercise each day. 

      o

      You will experience the full impact of Your Encour™! after 3 to 4 weeks of taking it every day. Should you forget a day, you can take it at night before bed or you can just get back on the regular schedule the next day. 

      o

      A daily serving of Your Encour!™ PowerStix™ is one stick mixed into 10 to 16 ounces of water or another beverage. Like a bolder taste? Use less water. If the taste is too strong, simply add more water. 

      o

      A daily serving of Your Encour!™ PowerTabs™ is three chewable tablets. You can take these tablets with you in a pocket or purse and enjoy them on the go. Just remember to drink plenty of water because your body will need it to get the optimal effect of Your Encour!™

      o

    • When should I take Your Encour!™?

      You can take Your Encour™ anytime. You can enjoy it with meals or without. You can take it before, during or after exercise or activity. 

       o

      Your Encour!™ is easy to use. There is no rigid schedule to follow, but we encourage you to make it a habit to take it each day for maximum benefits. We also encourage you to drink plenty of water. Water is required by your body for normal function, muscle development and growth. Make sure you get enough water to take full advantage of the active ingredient in Your Encour!™.

      o

      There is some research that would suggest an advantage can be obtained when you take Your Encour!™ right after exercise or activity. Some tests indicate it will be taken in more efficiently and help restore the energy that has been expended by your cells. 

      o

      Another trial in healthy older adults concluded, “Compared with resistance training alone, creatine supplementation improves muscle strength, with greater gains in lean tissue mass resulting from post-exercise creatine supplementation.” 

      o

    • Will Your Encour!™ keep me awake if I take it later in the day?

      No. Because Your Encour™ does not contain caffeine or any other stimulants, you can take it late in the day, even right before you go to bed, and not disrupt your sleep. 

      o

      Your Encour!™ PowerStix™ contain only the active ingredient creatine monohydrate, Vitamin C, flavor and sweetener. No caffeine. No sugar. So you can rest easy. 

      o

      Our Your Encour!™ PowerTabs™ chewable tablets contain a few more ingredients to keep the tablets from falling apart including a trace amount of dextrose. This small amount of dextrose also help your body absorb creatine more efficiently. It’s not enough to keep you up at night, but just enough to help keep our tablets together. 

      o

    • If I should get sick, should I keep taking Your Encour!™?

      Even if you cannot exercise or return to normal activity, taking Your Encour™ will help maintain your energy levels.

      o

      You can confidently continue taking Your Encour!™ Bioenergetic supplement even if you get sick and cannot continue your normal daily activities. 

      o

      In fact, if you take Your Encour!™ while you are on a break or off your routine because of illness, you will be helping to maintain a high level of muscular creatine and maintain your energy levels to help your cells stay fully charged. Not to mention staying fully hydrated. 

      o

      As soon as you are ready to resume your activities, you will find that you are prepared for it. 

      o

    • What types of activities would be best to maximize the benefits from Your Encour!™?

      Any exercise or activity that pushes you to achieve more than you have accomplished before is helpful. Strength training is best. Our goal is to get you moving and build your mental and physical strength. We encourage you to challenge yourself to include a variety of options as you start taking Your Encour!™. 

      o

      We understand that activities like fitness training can be intimidating to most adults as we age. However, nothing is more important to keeping our strength and focus as staying active and challenging our bodies to do more. Your body constantly adapts to the challenges that are placed on it and generally improves in strength over time when challenged. 

      o

      If you don’t use your mind and muscles, you lose strength and focus. That is why staying active with regular activities like fitness training is important. A variety of activities you enjoy will help you to sustain your motivation and makes for better results. 

      o

    • What if I get bored with the same exercise routine?

      This is one area where the answer is not Your Encour!™. Use your imagination. Get creative and think about all the different activities you enjoy and make them part of your exercise routine. 

      o

      If you no longer find your normal training regime motivating, try something new. Ideally, these should be activities or sports that focus on endurance and muscle strength, coordination, flexibility and balance. 

      o

      Go dancing. Ride a bike. Take a hike. Play 18 holes. Hit the court. Go for a swim. Paddle on a lake. It can be as simple as joining a friend or taking your family for a walk in the park. Start walking and set a goal to go further every day, even if it is just five minutes more a week. Over time, you will see a great improvement in your strength and endurance. 

      o

      There are a number of groups and classes available for your consideration as well. 

      o

      Functional training, core training, yoga, Pilates, and others are excellent ways of supplementing your strength-training regime. Here are a few ideas for your fitness routine that might help you add variety at home or at the gym. 

      o

      Incorporate new exercises and change the order of the exercises 

      Find a training partner or join a sports club 

      Play music that motivates you 

      Increase the number of repetitions: aim for up to 12 repetitions per set 

      Add an extra set: complete 3 or even 4 sets of each exercise 

      Add weight 

       o

      The most important thing is to get moving! Your results will be a reflection of the effort you devote to your own fitness. 

      o

    • Why should I be concerned with muscle loss as I age?

      Muscle strength allows us to move and stay balanced as we age. To remain healthy and mobile, you need to stop the loss of strength and balance. Your skeletal muscles are key to allowing you to be active and enjoy life as you age. 

      o

      Muscle mass and strength both decrease significantly as age increases. That is why regular strength training is so important. Muscle tissue can start deteriorating as early as 30 years. 

      o

      The average 30-year-old can expect to lose approx. 25% of their muscle mass and strength by the age of 70. They will then lose another 25% or so by the time they turn 90. You also increase your risk of falls and fractures. 

      o

      In the paper titled Age-associated loss of power and strength in the upper extremities in women and men, Metter et.al. explain the challenge as follows: 

      o

      “Beginning as early as the 4th decade of life, evidence suggests that skeletal muscle mass and skeletal muscle strength decline in a linear fashion, with up to 50% of mass being lost by the 8th decade of life” 

      o

      “…The aging process and its associated impact on the body are only part of the reason why this (muscle loss) happens. The failure to make sufficient use of our muscular system plays a far bigger role than aging itself.”

      o

      Use progressive resistance training (PRT) which increases the resistance over time, helping build back the muscle mass you have lost. In addition, supplementing with a creatine supplement like Your Encour!™ can improve those results. 

      o

      In the European Union EFSA is similar to the FDA. The conclusions of their review included the following statement:  "A cause and effect relationship has been established between the consumption of creatine in combination with resistance training and improvement in muscle strength."

      o

    • What specifically can Your Encour!™do to prevent muscle loss?

      Combined with exercise, Your Encour!™ can stop muscle loss. The active ingredient in Your Encour!™ is approved in Europe for maintaining muscle strength as we age. 

      o

      The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has permitted the following claim for the activeingredient in Your Encour!™. “Daily creatine consumption can enhance the effect of resistancetraining on muscle strength in adults over the age of 55.” Positive effects were realized bytaking 3 grams daily in combination with resistance training. The resistance training should be performed so that intensity is increased over time. Training 3 times per week using moderate intensity is recommended.” 

      o

      Remember that dietary supplements are no substitute for a varied, well-balanced diet and a healthy, active lifestyle including resistance (strength) training. 

      o

      The daily recommended dose of Your Encour!™ with moderate activity is sufficient to maintain muscle mass. Using higher levels of Your Encour!™ and increasing your workout for more intensive exercise may result in additional muscle mass gain. 

      o

      “Longer-term creatine supplementation (e.g. 4 to 12 weeks) in combination with training appears to increase muscle mass and strength as a result of an improved ability to perform high-intensity exercise via increased CrP (phosphocreatine) availability (Buford et al., 2007; SCF, 2001). 

      o

    • Do I have to drink my Your Encour!™ immediately?

      No, you can take your time enjoying your drink. Your Encour!™ is stable in cold or hot water for consumption within a few hours. 

       o

      Your Encour!™ should be enjoyed soon after you mix it, but you can take your time. It would take days to lose a substantial amount of the potency of the product in water. 

      o

      The mixed powder should not be stored as a solution for long periods because the active ingredient will eventually start breaking down into creatinine, just as it would inside the body. Although this will not have any detrimental effect on you, it will not have the desired effects either. 

      o

    • Do you have to be a certain age to use Your Encour!™?

      No, any healthy adult of any age can take Your Encour!™ . 

      o

      If you have a chronic or serious medical condition ask your doctor before using this product, just as you would with any change to your diet or activities, to see if it would be helpful to you. 

      o

      Creatine is found in every human body. Supplementing your body with Your Encour!™ is a safe and effective way to boost your energy at the cellular level. Healthy adults of any age should be able to enjoy the product without concern. 

      o

      If you have a condition which requires treatment, there may be benefits to using Your Encour!™ for your general health or your specific condition. We address several different health concerns throughout the FAQs, so search for your condition to learn more. 

      o

      You can be confident because the active ingredient in our supplement one of the most studied around the world. Moreover, you can trust Edelife, the maker of this product, because we make Your Encour!™ in the USA with only the highest-quality creatine direct from Germany. Nothing else meets our high standards for purity. 

      o

      Children do not require extra creatine because most have sufficient quantities to meet their needs. In general, it is not harmful for a person of any age to consume this product, but it is recommended by the manufacturer of our creatine that only those 18 years or older should regularly use the product. So if your children or grandchildren want to taste it, you can share  but don’t make it a part of their daily diet. 

      o

    • Why do the directions encourage drinking water when taking Your Encour!™?

      When you take Your Encour!™ your body needs water to provide the maximum benefit to your cells, and you may get thirsty as a result. 

      o

      Most American adults don’t drink enough water. As we age, we sometimes get busy or substitute other caffeinated or sugar-loaded beverages that have diuretic effects, which only makes the situation worse. 

      o

      We encourage you to drink water, even if you don’t purchase our product. But if you do, we want you to feel your best and enjoy the full benefits of Your Encour!™ . 

      o

      When you mix one of our Your Encour!™ PowerStix™ with water, you help provide hydration to your body. Add more water for a lighter taste, less for a bolder flavor. 

      o

      If you choose one of our tasty Your Encour!™ PowerTabs™ just keep your water bottle or glass handy. After savoring the tart and sweet tablet, you’ll want to drink something. 

      o

  • Safety

    Taking Your Encour! is safe and effective. It's one of the most trusted and proven dietary supplements on the planet. But you may have questions, so check out our list below. Let us know if you don't find what you are looking for!

    • What about the negative effects of creatine that I’ve found in stories on the internet?

      It may come as a surprise to you, but not everything you read on the internet is true. That is why we, the makers of Your Encour!™, strive to provide the most up-to-date, fact-based answers to your questions. 

      o

      We can assure you that the active ingredient in Your Encour! is one of the most studied supplements on the planet. The National Institutes of Health, part of the US Government, published a 2017 study that addresses many misconceptions about creatine. 

      o

      Specifically, the article addresses some of the myths around certain anecdotal claims regarding creatine supplementation. The report says: 

      o

      “Unsubstantiated anecdotal claims described in the popular media as well as rare case reports described in the literature without rigorous, systematic causality assessments have been refuted in numerous well-controlled clinical studies showing that creatine supplementation does not increase the incidence of: 

       o

      musculoskeletal injuries [22, 111, 112, 241], 

      dehydration [111, 112, 117, 122, 127, 128, 129, 242], 

      muscle cramping [76, 106, 111, 112, 117], 

      or gastrointestinal upset [22, 111, 112, 241]. 

      Nor has the literature provided any support that creatine promotes 

      renal dysfunction [22, 51, 85, 114, 156, 172, 243, 244, 245, 246, 247, 248] or 

      has long-term detrimental effects [22, 23, 53, 155, 172]

      o

      Rather, as noted above, creatine monohydrate supplementation has been found to reduce the incidence of many of these anecdotally reported side effects. 

      o

      We have several topics we address throughout the FAQs and other sections of our website. You’ll find that the science behind creatine is overwhelmingly positive, but don’t take our word for it. Review the studies and learn for yourself.

       o

      Research studies show that creatine positively affects brain function for “tasks that activate large areas of the prefrontal cortex.” 

       oo

      The study by McMorris  “Effect of creatine supplementation and sleep deprivation, with mild exercise, on cognitive and psychomotor performance, mood state, and plasma concentrations of catecholamines and cortisol” drew the following observations: 

      o

      “In conclusion, it can be said that the results of this experiment provide evidence of a positive effect of creatine supplementation on cognitive and psychomotor performance and mood state, following 24 h of sleep deprivation, although somewhat selectively…It would appear that creatine supplementation is an aid to overcoming brain fatigue.” 

      o

      McMorris published a second paper one year after the first which came to similar conclusions. 

      o

      “To summarize, creatine supplementation had a positive effect on the performance of a complex central executive task."

      o

    • How does exercise help with the health issues I face as I grow older and how can Your Encour!™ help?

      Diet, exercise, good sleep habits and the right supplements like Your Encour!™ can help you manage your weight, maintain your balance, and reduce the severity of age related issues.

      o

      If our muscular system is too weak, we are more likely to lose our balance while moving. Or when we stumble and need to stop ourselves from falling over. Consequently, our muscles are extremely important for fall prevention. 

       o

      What’s more, regular strength training significantly reduces the risk of more serious health problems

      o

      Strength training also plays a key role in slowing down bone loss and can even help bones to regenerate. Consequently, it can be used strategically for delaying further losses.

      o

    • Why should I take Your Encour!™ as well as increase my activity level?

      As adults, we tend to lead more sedentary lives. Increasing your level of activity will help you realize the greatest health benefits of Your Encour! ™. 

      o

      Your Encour!™ can enhance the results of increased activity and exercise. The gain in strength and muscle mass is well documented and can be improve quality of life as you age. Your Encour!™ is not intended to treat any disease.

      o

      Research in Germany has demonstrated that regular exercise plays a major role in cognitive well-being and the maintenance of long-term health. 

      o

      “In conclusion, the present study found that in a general elderly population, moderate or high physical activity, compared with no physical activity, are independently associated with a lower risk of developing incident cognitive impairment after 2 years of follow-up.” 

      o

      Another study showed that leisure time physical activity had a lasting effect for the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. 

      o

      The latest word from the experts is that they now regard strength training, in particular, as the most effective method of intervening early to counteract the natural loss of muscle mass and muscle strength. 

      o

      “Several studies have shown that strength (resistance) training can counteract age related impairments (3, 5, e1). The crucial factor in maintaining strength capacity is an increase in muscle mass. Additionally, an increase in muscle activity and frequency during isometric and dynamic muscle work have been observed. 

      o

      “This review provides evidence that PRT is an effective intervention for improving physical functioning in older people, including improving strength and the performance of some simple and complex activities.” 

      o

      Your Encour!™ can provide you with optimum support thanks to the effect of the creatine contained within it. Several scientific studies by independent research establishments and universities show that taking creatine on a daily basis boosts the effect that strength training has on muscle strength. 

      o

      Strength training in the gym is generally how the studies have measured progress. Nevertheless, the choice of the activities you wish to pursue can vary and can be as effective as high intensity exercise for maintaining muscle mass. Exercise like walking, hiking, gardening,etc. all contribute to your strength and help your body maintain your muscle mass. The key is making sure you get regular exercise to keep your muscles in good shape. 

      o

    • Is Your Encour™ dietary supplement safe for my renal system and my kidneys?

      Yes, recent published studies support that the active ingredient in Your Encour™ is safe for use with healthy individuals and those under a doctor's care.

      o

      Historically, there has been speculation that creatine, the active ingredient in Your Encour!™ would negatively impact kidney function. This speculation is based on observation of the presence of creatinine (a different compound than creatine) in urine, which is useful for determining the health of kidneys. 

      o

      Those allegations concerning kidneys have been addressed directly. Most recently, Richard B. Kreider, et. al. mounted a comprehensive review of creatine and its impact across the spectrum of sport and medicine and published a direct rejection of many incorrect assumptions regarding creatine; including the theory that creatine has an impact on kidneys. 

      o

      In the 2017 journal article titled International Society of Sports Nutrition position stand: safety and efficacy of creatine supplementation in exercise, sport, and medicine, the authors Richard B. Kreider, et. al. addressed a great number of false assumptions and unsubstantiated claims. 

      o

      Their conclusions about the safety of creatine include the following… 

      o

      “Unsubstantiated anecdotal claims described in the popular media as well as rare case reports described in the literature without rigorous, systematic causality assessments have been refuted in numerous well-controlled clinical studies showing that creatine supplementation does not increase the incidence of: 

      o

      musculoskeletal injuries [22, 111, 112, 241], 

      dehydration [111, 112, 117, 122, 127, 128, 129, 242], 

      muscle cramping [76, 106, 111, 112, 117], 

      or gastrointestinal upset [22, 111, 112, 241]. 

      Nor has the literature provided any support that creatine promotes 

      renal dysfunction [22, 51, 85, 114, 156, 172, 243, 244, 245, 246, 247, 248] or 

      has long-term detrimental effects [22, 23, 53, 155, 172]. 

      o

      Rather, as noted above, creatine monohydrate supplementation has been found to reduce the incidence of many of these anecdotally reported side effects.” 

      o

      Similarly, a 2012 article titled Creatine supplementation with specific view to exercise/sports performance: an update by Robert Cooper, et.al. reviewed the safety and side effects of creatine supplementation. They came to the same conclusions regarding creatine safety for renal health. 

      o

      “Specific studies into creatine supplementation, renal function and/or safety conclude that although creatine does slightly raise creatinine levels there is no progressive effect to cause negative consequences to renal function and health in already healthy individuals when proper dosage recommendations are followed.”

      o

      The presence of creatinine is not harmful to your health or to your kidneys. Raised creatinine levels do not mean that your kidney function is impaired, just that more creatine is being broken down by your body.

      o

    • My doctor doesn’t want me to take a creatine supplement because it might hurt my kidneys. Is this true?

      Unfortunately, there is lots of misinformation about creatine, even among doctors. 

      o

      Truth is that today’s general practitioners cannot keep up with all the new discoveries of science. For this reason, we sought outside help from experts who devote their lives to study the science of creatine. 

      o

      Fortunately, science has addressed the widely held misbeliefs that creatine supplementation injures kidneys or puts them at risk. 

      o

      A review of studies has shown that there is 'no compelling evidence' of harm to kidneys from creatine supplementation.

      o

      If you have a medical condition, particularily those that require ongoing treatment, we believe you should speak to your dcotor about this information, before you make any changes to your diet.

      o

      Know this. At Edelife, our trust in the medical profession is high, because those professionals have worked their entire careers to provide care for people. However, as science advances, new studies are published. It’s our mission to help doctors learn the science behind Your Encour! ™ Bioenergetic supplement and its benefits for their patients. Please share this site with your doctors and invite them to learn more about Your Encour!™. 

      o

    • I’m a Type 2 diabetic. Does supplementation with creatine have any negative effects on me?

      It should not, based on scientific studies with patients who have Type 2 diabetes.

      o

      We offer sugar-free options with Your Encour!™ PowerStix™ to minimize any issues for you. 

      o

      If you are diabetic, the Your Encour!™ PowerStix™ are totally sugar-free.

      o

      The Your Encour!™ PowerTabs™ do contain a small amount of dextrose as a binder for making the tablets. The amount is roughly equivalent to the amount of sugar found in a serving of vegetables. (6-7 g per day depending on the formulation)

      o

      Although it is a common misperception that there is a potential impact, no effects on kidney function were found in research with Type 2 diabetic patients studied by Gualono and associates. 

      o

      “A specific study by Gualono and associates [262] reported that 12 weeks of creatine supplementation had no effects on kidney function in type 2 diabetic patients.” (This full paper is available upon request to the authors) 

      o

      In fact, the study reveals advantages for creatine supplementation for improving the outcomes of kidney disease patients. 

      o

      You should always consult your doctor before starting any new product if you have a medical condition that requires ongoing treatment.

      o

    • Does long-term use of Your Encour!™ pose a risk to renal function?

      There is no compelling evidence of risk. 

      o

      The active ingredient in Your Encour!™ has a proven track record of safety, even when taken over a long period at high doses. Because it is a naturally occurring compound in cells throughout your body, creatine is viewed as one of the safest supplements available for use today. 

      o

      The following quote summarizes the safety of creatine regarding renal function. 

      o

      “Moreover, long-term, high dose ingestion of creatine (up to 30 g/d for up to 5 years) in patient populations has not been associated with an increased incidence of renal dysfunction [23, 155, 156, 172].” ‘

      o

      We believe you should always consult your doctor before starting any new product if you have a medical condition that requires ongoing treatment. to make sure medications you might be taking will not be adversely impacted and to consider all other factors.

      o

    • Does Your Encour!™ cause dehydration?

      No, not drinking enough water causes dehydration. If you get thirsty after taking Your Encour! just increase the amount of water you consume each day and keep drinking more water to stay hydrated. 

      o

      Many of us get distracted during the day and when we are active, so we don’t reach for water as often as we should, and our cells get depleted of water. Drinking more water is recommended universally as it is vital to health and nutrition, and it is especially necessary for your kidneys and renal system. 

      o

      If you are increasing your activity level as a result of having more energy with Your Encour!™, then likewise make sure you increase your consumption of water, either in your glass with Your Encour!™ drink powder or after you enjoy Your Encour!™ chewable tablets. 

      o

      When you consume Your Encour!™ we recommend you drink plenty of water because water will be drawn into your cells, into your muscles and other vital organs. This is the natural function of creatine and has many positive effects for your body. 

      o

      For example, you may perform better under hot conditions or arid environments.

      o 

      With increased water in your cells throughout your body, you may feel like you can do more in the heat as a result of better hydration with the help of creatine. This perception is documented in research. 

      o

      The following is a quote from the research study: 

      o

      “Creatine was found to increase total body water possibly by decreasing the risk of dehydration, reducing sweat rate, lowering core body temperature and exercising heart rate. Furthermore, creatine supplementation does not increase symptoms nor negatively affect hydration or thermoregulation status of athletes exercising in the heat [83,84]. Additionally, CM ingestion has been shown to reduce the rate of perceived exertion when training in the heat [85].”

      The key ingredient in Your Encour!™ transports energy within brain cells to power brain activity. 

      o

      About 20% of the body’s total energy consumption is to support brain function.

      o

      Creatine, the key ingredient in Your Encour! is credited with increasing the availability of energy to the brain when taken as a supplement over time. “A number of studies have shown that creatine supplementation can increase brain creatine content. [218, 219220].”

      o

      In addition, creatine supplementation can reduce mental fatigue [221] and help maintain normal cognitive function. [83, 222, 223224].”

      o

      While these studies were conducted with higher doses of creatine over a short period of time, the same level of creatine can be attained with long-term use of Your Encour!.

      o

    • What specific cognitive benefits have studies shown to be supported by the ingredient in Your Encour!™?

      A number of studies have been conducted with different rates of creatine and over different time periods for each study. The results show cognitive benefits in a number of different areas of cognition.

      o

      Here are a few highlights from the various studies using healthy aging adults we reviewed.

      o

    • How does exercise help people with Type 2 diabetes and what can Your Encour!™ do to help?

      Exercise helps extract sugar from your blood, use it for fuel, and keep your body sensitive to insulin. Your Encour!™ can help you have more energy for exercise and activity. 

      o

      First, Your Encour!™ is available in a sugar-free formula. Eliminating the consumption of sugar directly with this supplement is a good first step. 

      o

      Second, strong muscles are much more efficient at taking oxygen and nutrients from the blood than weak ones are. With exercise and Your Encour™, you can build more muscle and stronger muscles.

      o

      This means that each activity places less stress on the heart because it does not have to wok so hard. Having a solid muscular system helps the body utilize sugar and remain sensitive to insulin. In turn, this helps our cells to extract sugar from the blood. Thus, strong muscles help to keep blood sugar levels in check. This goes a long way towards preventing or controlling type 2 diabetes. 

      o

      A study confirms more muscle mass can help regulate diabetes. The research reports “Across the full range, higher muscle mass (relative to body size) is associated with better insulin sensitivity and lower risk of PDM. “ 

      o

      You should always consult your doctor before starting any new product if you have a medical condition that requires ongoing treatment to make sure medications you might be taking will not be adversely impacted and to consider all other factors.

      o

    • Does Your Encour!™ support sexual function?

       o

      For men, the active ingredient in Your Encour!™ been shown to increase the resting testosterone levels in some studies. 

      o

      The conclusion of a study on collegiate football players found increased levels of testosterone for those who received creatine supplements. 

      o

      “The effects of creatine and creatine plus β-alanine on strength, power, body composition, and endocrine changes were examined during a 10-wk resistance training program in collegiate football players…Resting blood samples were analyzed for total testosterone, cortisol, growth hormone, IGF-1, and sex hormone binding globulin. Resting testosterone concentrations were elevated in C (creatine), however, no other significant endocrine changes were noted… Results of this study demonstrate the efficacy of creatine and creatine plus β-alanine on strength performance.” 

      o

      Women may feel better as a result of the potential effect of creatine and the impact of a healthier body and better self-image related to exercise. 

      o

      The active ingredient in Your Encour!™, creatine, is found in most tissues in the human body including sexual organs. In addition, creatine is found in sperm cells. Supplementing your body with Your Encour!™ is a safe and effective way to boost your energy at a cellular level and help you and your partner feel better. 

       o

    • What role does creatine play in reproduction?

      Creatine is key in fertilization. It is made by ovaries and is present in sperm produced by the testes. Adding creatine in IVF procedures has been shown improve fertilization rates. 

      o

      Creatine is produced in ovaries and is part of the reproductive tract which encourages fertilization. Creatine has been used to improve success with certain IVF procedures to energize sperm and improve fertility rates. 

      o

      A published study reveals that “Creatine produced in the ovary promotes efficient fertilization in vivo; however, in vitro, creatine is not contained in the in vitro fertilization (IVF) medium.” 

      o

      “A modified IVF technique using creatine-containing medium was developed and shown to markedly improve fertilization with small numbers of sperm. This approach has the potential to be highly beneficial for human assisted reproductive technologies, especially for patients with a limited number of good quality sperm.” 

      o

      We are not aware of any studies examining the supplementation of creatine, the active ingredient in Your Encour! to evaluate the impact on reproduction.

    • What is the science behind how Your Encour!™ provides energy to your body?

      The energy comes from improved availability and amounts of energy stored at the cellular level in the form of phosphocreatine.

      O

      We obtain energy by consuming food, including the nutrients that are the building blocks for creatine your own body makes, meat and fish that contain creatine, or a creatine supplement like Your Encour!™.

      O

      The “molecular currency” of energy transfer between cells in the human body is called ATP (adenosine triphosphate). If energy is required with the movement of muscles, the use of your brain or nervous system cells, or other activities of your body, ATP can release a phosphate group – resulting in ADP (adenosine diphosphate).

      O

      Creatine is able to move freely within the cell. It’s like a mobile charging station that is always ready to supply energy in a flash whenever it is needed. Creatine recharges cells by converting the ADP back into ATP. For a technical review of the metabolic role of creatine, you can find information here.

      O

      This process takes a time and does not happen immediately like your phone charger. In addition, the cell is not able to store unlimited amounts of ATP. There’s only so much capacity in each cell.

      O

      That is why creatine in the form of phosphocreatine has such an important role to play in energy supply. Phosphocreatine can be stored in the cell in larger quantities. In addition, it is able to donate a phosphate group to ADP, thereby enabling the fastest possible regeneration of the ATP. You feel this difference when you recover faster after exercise or activity when using Your Encour!™.
