Creatine 101

Creatine

Most people will say that bodybuilding supplements are vital to any bodybuilder's training program. Among the top of the bodybuilding supplements is creatine. Bodybuilder's believe that supplementing creatine into their diet helps them achieve bigger strength gains. Creatine is one of the most widely used and sought after bodybuilding supplements. As a bodybuilder I consistently interact with people supplementing their diet with creatine.

So what is creatine anyway?

Creatine is already inside each of us. Creatine is produced by the liver, kidneys and pancreas. Creatine is responsible for the energy inside the muscles. Once inside the muscles it is converted to creatine phosphate and eventually in to adenosine triphosphate (more commonly referred to as ATP). ATP is the muscle's energy source and is responsible for the contraction of the muscle. Once this energy has been exerted (muscle contraction) then ATP becomes ADP. This is when creatine phosphate and ADP create ATP and the cycle begins again.

So why take creatine?

It is believed that creatine is stored inside our muscles. Our creatine storage is not at full capacity so by supplementing with creatine you can "fill" your muscular storage system and as a result experience more muscular energy.

Where can it be found?

Creatine can be found in fish and meat. Although it occurs naturally in the body and can be found in our foods the quantity is still limited. That is why supplementing your creatine supply is becoming essential for athletes of all kinds. Any athlete that has more muscular energy is at an advantage.
