Washington, D.C.New Jersey State Senator Bob Singer introduced a Senate Joint Resolution, which has now established July 9 as Creatine Day. The Natural Products Association (NPA) asks health and wellness supporters to keep writing to members of the New Jersey state legislature through the NPA Action Center in order to continue building support.

“Creatine is one of the most popular nutritional supplements because of its long history of strength and muscle health,” said Daniel Fabricant, Ph.D., NPA President and CEO. “A broad body of clinical research has shown that creatine can enhance muscle growth, sports performance, strength, training, post-exercise recovery, injury prevention and rehabilitation. We are extremely grateful to Senator Singer for recognizing the importance of creatine supplementation. We encourage his colleagues to co-sponsor his Resolution.” 

Sports Nutrition Boost

In light of the news, Sharon Leite, CEO of The Vitamin Shoppe, weighed in. “At The Vitamin Shoppe, creatine is one of our most popular and fastest-growing sports nutrition supplements,” Leite said. “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.”
