WASHINGTON – The Natural Products Association applauds New Jersey State Senator Bob Singer (30-Lakewood) for introducing a Senate Joint Resolution recognizing July 9 as Creatine Day in New Jersey.
“Creatine is one of the most popular nutritional supplements because of its long history of strength and muscle health,” said Daniel Fabricant, Ph.D., President and CEO of the Natural Products Association.
“A broad body of clinical research has shown that creatine can enhance muscle growth, sports performance, strength, training, post-exercise recovery, and injury prevention and rehabilitation. We are extremely grateful to Senator Singer for recognizing the importance of creatine supplementation and we encourage his colleagues to co-sponsor his Resolution.”
Sharon Leite, CEO of The Vitamin Shoppe®, a Secaucus-based health and wellness omnichannel retailer, commented: “At The Vitamin Shoppe, creatine is one of our most popular and fastest-growing sports nutrition supplements. We wanted to shine a spotlight on this uniquely effective nutritional supplement and its many benefits to consumers by establishing July 9 as National Creatine Day. As a proud, New Jersey-based company with over 700 stores nationwide, we are thrilled that the New Jersey State Senate is considering a resolution to officially do the same in the great state of New Jersey.”
