Creatine benefits : - Strength Gain, Endurance, Muscle Growth, Increased Muscle Recovery

When a body takes part in exercise, a compound in our cells called Adenosine Triphosphate (or ATP) is used to create energy for our working muscles. It releases one of its phosphate molecules to form Adenosine Diphosphate (ADP), and in the process, energy is released for use. Since a human body has a relatively low amount of ATP, it has to convert ADP back to ATP in order to repeat the energy-producing process.

Creatine speeds up this process by giving up its own phosphate molecule to ADP, thus increasing the rate of which ATP is reformed. This ATP is now ready to create energy again. More creatine in our muscles allow us to work out longer and harder, ultimately contributing to gain in strength and muscle size.

Creatine is a natural compound made in our bodies, and can also be found in dietary sources such as meat and fish. However, one had to eat a vast amount of such food in order to absorb a sufficient amount of creatine to make a difference in sports performance. Supplementation is much easier and convenient way to take in dietary creatine. Among its different types, Creatine Monohydrate is used extensively in university researches and sports applications.

Creatine Monohydrate is available in tablet, capsule, powder and liquid forms. It can also be bought in the form of a drink mix.

Studies have shown that Creatine Citrate, a newer form of creatine being sold in the market, might have even greater muscle-building benefits. This is because citrates generally have a higher solubility and absorption than monohydrate. Create Citrate supplements are commonly sold in fizzy, effervescent drink forms.
