What is Creatine?
Creatine is produced in
small amounts naturally within the body and can also be consumed through
diet. It is then stored in skeletal muscles to be used as an energy
Why Should I Take Creatine?
the quantity of creatine shown in clinical research trials to support
and promote exercise performance, muscle protein synthesis, and related
processes is significantly larger than what the body can manufacture and
what we receive through our diet. This is why consuming 5g of Creatine Monohydrate daily is an excellent way to fill our muscle stores and ensure they have the energy required for intense exercise2.
What Benefits Can I Expect?3
supplementation works by increasing muscle phosphocreatine stores,
which aids in the production of ATP and leads to improved energy
Enhanced Muscle Size
concentrations of creatine within the muscles have been shown to
increase their water content. This allows for fuller, larger muscles
& improved recovery.
Reduced Muscular Burn
Creatine can serve as a lactic acid buffer, which allows us to more comfortably train our muscles at or near failure.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Thankfully, creatine supplementation has been deemed safe and effective in over 500 clinical studies! This makes it a no-brainer for anyone looking to build muscle or improve energy. However,
creatine will pull more water into the muscle which leaves less for
other bodily functions. Due to this, it's advised to increase water
intake while supplementing with creatine4.
