Creatine is a non-essential amino acid that is an important source of chemical energy for muscle contraction. Once creatine reaches the muscles, it’s converted into Phosphocreatine (creatine phosphate), and ultimately becomes the body’s primary energy source; Adenosine Triphosphate. In your skeletal muscles, where you generate the energy for movement, creatine participates in the complex muscle contraction process to maximize muscle energy. Adenosine Triphosphate, abbreviated to ATP, is a key fuel for muscle contraction, the repetition exercises you perform when bodybuilding. The more ATP you make available to your muscles the more energy is created to power both aerobic and anaerobic energy demanding sports like sprinting, rowing and bodybuilding. Normal levels of ATP allow you only a few seconds of high intensity energy.
Although Creatine’s role in the energy production process is its most notable trait, there is evidence that Creatine can stimulate muscle growth. It does this a couple of different ways. By allowing you to perform more work as a result of additional energy, increased protein synthesis is stimulated. Secondly, when an abundance of creatine phosphate is stored in the muscle, the muscle will hold more water in its cells and become what is known as “volumized” or “super-hydrated.” The more volumized a muscle is, the more it will promote the synthesis of protein as well as deter the breakdown of protein. Volumizing the muscle will also create an environment where an increased level of Glycogen Synthesis will take place. Increased protein synthesis along with training will lead to muscle growth. There is also scientific evidence that shows supplementation with creatine causes muscle injuries to repair themselves quicker.
Creatine provides muscular support for people of all ages and activity levels. In fact, creatine use is widespread among professional and amateur athletes. Research suggests that Creatine helps promote exercise and athletic performance and supports recovery from high-intensity exercise. Creatine is especially good during short-term, high-intensity exercise. Creatine can help muscles recover after high-intensity exercise.
