Description

Description:

Creatine is an amino acid and a natural source of energy that helps your skeletal muscles contract. About 95% of it in the body is found there. It helps create a steady supply of energy in your muscles, especially while you’re exercising.

Dietary Sources:
Half of your body’s supply of creatine (1 to 2 grams/day) comes from your diet, especially protein-rich foods such as:

  • Red meat (pork, veal, and beef).
  • Seafood (fish and shellfish).
  • Animal milk (like cow, goat, and sheep milk).

Your body produces the other half naturally in your liver, kidneys, and pancreas. They deliver about 95% of the creatine to your skeletal muscles for use during physical activity. The rest goes to your heart, brain, and other tissues.

How it assists muscles to produce more energy:

The most common form of creatine is creatine monohydrate. It increases the muscles’ phosphocreatine stores and helps in the formation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the key molecule your cells use for energy and all basic life functions. During exercise, ATP is broken down to produce energy. The rate at which the body replenishes ATP limits the body’s ability to continually perform at maximum intensity. Creatine supplements increase phosphocreatine stores, producing more ATP energy to fuel your muscles during high-intensity exercise. It has been shown to improve numerous factors during such training, including strength, ballistic power, sprint ability, muscle endurance, resistance to fatigue, muscle mass, and recovery.

Creatine use is allowed by the International Olympic Committee and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

Muscle Strength and Size:

  • Muscle strength: Taking creatine by mouth seems to somewhat improve muscle strength in both younger and older adults.
  • New muscle growth: Creatine can alter numerous cellular pathways that lead to new muscle growth. It boosts the formation of proteins that increase muscle fibers by signaling key biological pathways and boosting gym performance. It can also raise levels of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), a hormone that promotes muscle mass increase.
  • Muscle size: Creatine supplements can increase the water content of your muscles, quickly increasing muscle size. Researchers have indicated that creatine decreases levels of myostatin, a molecule responsible for stunting muscle growth. Reducing myostatin can help you build muscle faster.
  • Vegetarians and vegans: Vegetarians or vegans may see more significant muscle gains by taking creatine supplements because they do not get creatine through animal-based sources. However, building up creatine levels in the muscles may take longer.

In addition to its athletic benefits, creatine supplements may benefit people who have neurodegenerative diseases, such as muscular dystrophy, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, conditions that affect creatine metabolism and transport, and insufficient blood flow to your heart muscle (myocardial ischemia).

Blood Sugar Control:

Short-term blood sugar response to a meal is an important marker of diabetes risk. The faster your body clears sugar from the blood, the better. Research suggests that creatine supplements may lower blood sugar levels by increasing the function of glucose transporter type 4 (GLUT-4), a molecule that brings blood sugar into your muscles. A 12-week study examined how creatine affects blood sugar levels after a high-carb meal. People who combined creatine and exercise exhibited better blood sugar control than those who only exercised.

Brain Booster:

Creatine plays an important role in brain health and function. Research has demonstrated that the brain requires a significant amount of ATP when performing difficult tasks. Supplements can increase phosphocreatine stores in your brain to help it produce more ATP. Creatine may also aid brain function by increasing dopamine levels and mitochondrial function. Studies suggest that creatine supplements may help brain function in people 60 and older, including short-term memory, reasoning, and neuroprotection (keeping groups of nerve cells safe from injury or damage).

Fatigue Fighter:

Creatine supplements may also reduce fatigue and tiredness. In a 6-month study of people with traumatic brain injury, those who supplemented with creatine experienced a 50% reduction in dizziness compared to those who did not supplement. Only 10% of patients in the supplement group experienced fatigue compared to 80% in the control group. Another study determined that creatine led to reduced fatigue and increased energy levels during sleep deprivation.

On average, 3–5 grams of creatine monohydrate powder per day is suggested (2.5 – 5ml heaped), dissolved in a little water or as recommended by your health professional.
