Creatine (Creatine Monohydrate)

Many foods (especially herring, salmon, tuna, and beef) contain some creatine. However, the best source of creatine is creatine monohydrate because it contains more creatine per weight than any other source. Creatine Monhydrate is a nitrogenous organic acid that occurs naturally in vertebrates and helps to supply energy to all cells in the body by increasing the formation of Adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

Creatine is not an essential nutrient, as it is naturally produced in the human body from amino acids primarily in the kidney and liver. It is transported in the blood for use by muscles. Approximately 95% of the human body's total creatine is located in skeletal muscle.

Creatine supplements are usually used by athletes seeking to gain muscle mass, with typical supplementation being 2 to 3 times what is naturally obtained from a high-protein diet. Research has shown oral creatine supplementation at a rate of 5 to 20 grams per day appears to be safe while at the same time improving the physiological response to resistance exercise. Even though studies have shown little or no adverse impact on kidney or liver function from oral creatine supplementation, individuals with kidney or liver disease should consult a physician before using this supplement.

There are two main methods of creatine supplementation.

1. Loading works very well for anyone who has never taken creatine. During the first four days to a week, take 20 to 30 grams per day mixed with non-acidic juice or water. After this loading period, take a regular intake of between five to fifteen grams per day to keep your muscles.

2. Skip the loading phase and just supplement with five to fifteen grams per day, everyday. The best results have been noticed when creatine is combined with a high carbohydrate base, such as dextrose (glucose) and taken about 30 minutes before training.
