Creatinol-o-phosphate Is Not Creatine right?
that is very important to get straight. it is definitely not. creatinol is structurally close to creatine but it is different. And unlike creatine phosphate (which has the phosphate connceted to a nitrogen atom), creatinol-O-Phosphate has the phosphate connected to an oxygen atom (from and OH group)
Also, creatine phosphate is known to easily lose the phosphate to form ATP whicle COP doesnt seem to lose the phosphate much at all in the muscle. So its a mystery what it really does in muscle to give its effects. Certainly does not appear to be acting like a creatine phosphate per se
