Creatinol-O-Phosphate - Glossary


Also known as Aplodan. Creatinol-o-phosphate (COP) is a creatine analog added to certain bodybuilding supplements as it has the potential to a) be converted to creatine; b) act as a source of phosphate to regenerate creatine; and/or c) function as an alternate source of phosphate for the regeneration of ATP.  Animal and human studies in the late 1970’s – early 1980’s demonstrated COP has protective effects on the heart, but this has not been followed up on…research is largely dormant.

See the Aplodan review for more information.
