Creatine is usually one of the first supplements an athlete will try. In fact, itâ€™s so popular itâ€™s a cornerstone product in the supplement arsenal of many advanced athletes. The reason? It works! No other supplement has been as tested and proven effective the way creatine has. What does Creatine do? Creatine helps increase the muscleâ€™s stores of phosphocreatine which is a component of the ATP system of energy. This is what the body uses for short bursts of muscular energy such as high-intensity exercise. However, It depletes very quickly and must be replenished rapidly to allow continued bursts of muscular energy.Â Creatine supports ATP regeneration thereby allowing the athlete to work out longer. Creatine also supports muscular hydration by pulling water into the muscle cells which creates the huge pumps craved by many bodybuilders and other athletes. Additionally, Creatine improves strength and supports muscle growth.(1,2,3,4,5)
