Creatine supplementation has become increasingly popular among athletes in the last few decades, due to its ability to increase physical performance and reduce fatigue.
Creatine is an amino acid-like compound found naturally in the body and in certain foods, such as red meat and seafood. It is an important energy source in the body and helps to generate the energy needed for muscle contractions.
Creatine supplementation has been shown to increase muscle strength and size, as well as improve performance in high-intensity exercise, allowing them to lift heavier weights for longer periods of time. This can help athletes improve their performance in sports that require strength, such as weightlifting, football, cycling and any other sport where you need explosive power and strength.
Creatine also helps to reduce fatigue in athletes, which can help them perform better for longer periods of time.
Studies have also found that creatine can help to reduce post-exercise muscle soreness, making it easier for athletes to recover from intense workouts. Creatine supplementation has also been linked to increased muscle hydration, which can improve muscle performance and reduce the risk of injury. Studies have found that creatine supplementation can increase muscle hydration by up to 20%, which can lead to improved muscle performance and reduced risk of muscle-related injuries. Furthermore, creatine supplementation can improve the body’s ability to produce energy during exercise, which can help athletes perform better during intense physical activities.
Overall, creatine supplementation has been shown to be effective in helping athletes increase their muscle strength and size, reduce fatigue, reduce post-exercise muscle soreness, and increase muscle hydration. These benefits make creatine an attractive supplement for athletes looking to improve their performance and reduce their risk of injury.
What do you need to be cautious of when buying Creatine?
Using low grade and impure Creatine can be extremely dangerous to your health, as not only are you not receiving the dosage of Creatine you think you are, but the synthetic powder added to it could be toxic.
You may think you are buying high grade Creatine, but some companies will mix a low grade Creatine with a small amount of high grade Creatine to create a label claim such as "German Creatine". This is incredibly deceptive, as the amount of high grade Creatine is so low that it is virtually impossible to tell the difference between high and low grade.
