Why You Should Be Taking Creatine!

Posted on August 17 2017

Creatine Monohydrate is one of the most studied dietary supplements in the sports nutrition and performance scene. It has been used for years, has been reviewed extensively, and is a well-understood supplement. However, its uses, benefits, and “side-effects” are often incorrectly practiced and preached by the common gym-goer. Let’s clear up a few common questions about creatine.

What Is Creatine?

Creatine is a molecule produced by the body and is actually found in small traces of some foods, such as meats, eggs, and fish. It is stored in high energy phosphate groups called phosphocreatine in the muscles. Supplementing with creatine can help improve force production and increased muscle mass while on a resistance training program.

How Does It Work?

Creatine works by regenerating ATP while training. It is best used for short, intense bursts of energy source used by your muscles (ATP) breaks down and you become fatigued. Creatine stored in the muscles helps regenerate this ATP and allows you to perform a few mor reps.

How Do You Take It?

Many people will recommend a loading phase, but I believe it is unnecessary. The best way to supplement with creatine is 5 grams each day. It has no acute benefits so you can take i in the morning, before your workout, after your workout or at night. Just take 5 grams each day — even on non-training days.

Why Take It?

Creatine Monohydrate is one of those supplements that is proven beneficial, not very expensive and will produce effective results while training.
