The best creatine source from a world market leader in animal nutrition

GuanAMINO®

GuanAMINO® is Evonik’s solution to providing farm animals with the natural creatine precursor Guanidinoacetic acid (GAA). Therefore, GuanAMINO® supplies creatine in the best way to your animals, improving their performance leading to optimized production costs and profitability.

Challenge

Creatine is a constituent of central importance in energy metabolism, particularly of muscle cells. More than 90 % of the creatine pool is located in the muscle tissue of the animal.

In the body, creatine is formed by de novo synthesis through methylation of guanidinoacetic acid (GAA), which itself is formed from the amino acids glycine and arginine. However, in fast-growing animals it is estimated that only around two-thirds of the daily need for creatine is covered by the body’s own synthesis, while the rest must be supplied via addition to the feed.

Solution

Providing the creatine precursor GAA, GuanAMINO® is the best supplemented creatine source due to its outstanding stability in feed processing and high bioavailability to the animal.

Adding GuanAMINO® to the feed closes the gap in creatine supply, thereby increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of nutrition and optimizing production costs of farm animals.
