Definition:Creatine is considered a naturally occurring nutrient found in skeletal muscles that is comprised of arginine, glycine and methionine (three amino acids). Creatine assists in providing muscle fibers with the energy needed to facilitate quick and forceful movements. While most of the body's creatine is obtained from dietary sources, using it in supplement form to enhance muscle building and athletic performance is currently in use. Several clinical studies suggest that creatine supplementation allows for more energy storage, increased stamina, strength and synthesis of protein and lean muscle mass.
Recommendations:Creatine is best utilized in powder form. Exact measurements can be obtained with specific dispensing cups packaged with powdered forms.
