Creatine must be one of the most effective natural supplements when it comes to muscle building, strength and athletics performance.
Creatine is naturally produced in the body by the amino acids glycine and arginine. It is also found in protein-rich foods such as meat and fish. However, you would need to eat a lot of meat and fish to obtain an appreciable amount of creatine, which is one reason why creatine is frequently consumed as a supplement. It is hard to get enough of it to feel its benefits through food alone.
The following are the main scientifically proven benefits of creatine:
1) Creatine can provide additional ATP energy, which simply put is the body’s primary source of energy when performing high-intensity exercise e.g. heavy lifts, explosive jumps, quick sprints.
2) Creatine can stimulate several key biological processes that lead to increased muscle growth and size (e.g. boost formation of new muscle fibres, increase water content of your muscles) both short and long-term.
3) Creatine can reduce symptoms of fatigue and tiredness by providing the brain with additional energy.
4) Outside the sporting scene, creatine is used clinically to treat neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, epilepsy and Parkinson’s.
Along with the diverse benefits outlined above, creatine is also one of the cheapest and safest supplements available. It has been researched for more than 200 years and numerous studies support its safety for long-term use.
Our recommended type of creatine supplement is creatine monohydrate.
