One of the best selling, most researched supplements on the market, creatine made a name for itself as a proven performer back in the 1990’s. Its ability to enhance athletic performance has helped countless athletes train harder, work out longer and bottom-line … produce better fitness results.
Creatine is a naturally occurring energy source that your body uses in periods of stress or exertion to fight off muscle fatigue and increase endurance and anaerobic capacity. Creatine also acts as a good muscle cell volumizer, leading to increased anabolism and muscle protein synthesis. Increasing creatine levels in the body through supplementation allows for improved ATP regeneration and acts as a supply of power on demand for you during intense training. With creatine as a source of fast, available energy, glycolysis (the metabolic breakdown of glucose into energy) decreases, which in turn reduces lactic acid build-up and leads to increased endurance.
