Using Creatine Supplements
Creatine is one of the common supplements used by body builders. People who do diet also consume it. The real effect of creatine is still researched. The doctors still don't know the effect of long-term used of creatine.
The most commonly used form of synthetic creatine is the monohydrate salt, creatine monohydrate. Creatine monohydrate is simply a molecule of creatine accompanied by a molecule of water.
Creatine is a source of energy for muscle contraction. The body produces its own creatine in the liver, kidneys and pancreas. You also get it in your diet when you eat meat or fish. (Vegetarians may have less creatine.) The body stores most of the creatine in skeletal muscle to use when you exercise. The rest goes in the heart, brain and other tissues.
Creatine fuels ATP development, which means:
* Sustained high intensity and power workouts
* More energy for muscle contraction
* Vastly improved power and muscle size
* You workout longer, stronger and get to see the results in the mirror.
