Creatine is an amino acid most commonly found in your muscles and brain. It’s typically sourced from red meat and seafood, although your body can produce around one gram of creatine on its own each day. Oral supplements are often utilized for building muscle and enhancing athletic performance, but are also sometimes prescribed to treat brain disorders, heart failure, and numerous other conditions. There’s evidence that suggests it can also assist in lowering blood sugar levels and improve brain function.
And, to get it out of the way, many people believe that creatine is unsafe and results in adverse side-effects - but there is no scientific evidence to support this theory. If taken as directed (and it has been the subject of many studies) it provides various benefits and can help you reach your goals quickly and safely.
Here are some of the benefits of taking creatine supplements:
Increases Strength, Muscles, and Performance
Creatine has been noted for its ability to amp up an athlete’s performance by providing your muscles with instant energy, allowing for longer performance. Great for high-intensity workouts, the supplement ultimately leads to more gains at a faster pace, helping you meet your goals quickly. If you’re trying to bulk up this is a great way to escalate your routine.
Taking creatine can increase satellite cell signaling which helps your muscles recover from intense workouts while promoting muscle growth simultaneously. It can also assist in reducing cramping, dehydration, and serious injuries to muscles, tendons, ligaments, tendons, bones, and nerves.
Helps Fend Off Neurological Diseases
Many neurological diseases can stem from the loss of phosphocreatine in your brain. Creatine increases the levels of phosphocreatine stored in both your muscles and brain, promoting brain health. It can also help fight off disorders like Huntington's Disease, Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, ALS, and brain or spinal cord injuries.
Can Reduce Fatigue
By increasing the amount of energy not only in your muscles, but in your brain, creatine helps raise levels of dopamine making you feel good and refreshed. This helps stave off tiredness and fatigue, allowing you to perform at a high level.
In summary, creatine improves:
● resistance to fatigue
● amassing muscle
● brain function
