What is Creatine?

In the world of supplements, I find that creatine is one of the least talked about supplements, when in fact one of the most well-researched and effective products on the market. It is a great supplement because creatine is used in combination with resistance exercise, it is known to increase lean mass and athletic performance (https://examine.com/supplements/creatine/). So, what is creatine and how does it work?  

Creatine is a naturally occurring compound made in our body, naturally produced from amino acids, made in the liver, pancreas and kidneys and transported to the body’s muscles through our bloodstream. It functions as an energy source in our muscle cells, helping to improve muscular output and reducing fatigue during intense exercises. Further to this it raises levels of insulin-like growth factor and increase the water content of your muscles, both encouraging the increase of muscle mass. Lastly creatine supplements can benefit you regardless of your fitness level (https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/10-benefits-of-creatine#TOC_TITLE_HDR_3). 

When taking creatine, it can improve your:  

  • strength 
  • power output 
  • sprint ability 
  • muscle endurance 
  • resistance to fatigue 
  • muscle mass 

Whereas Creatine can naturally be found in our body and our foods, athletes commonly take it as a powder or in capsules. Our Creatine monohydrate is a powder form supplement and one of the most effective brands of creatine on the market. Using ultra-pure creatine that is free from contaminants and has been micronized for rapid absorption and utilisation.
