Creatine

Recent studies have demonstrated that taking creatine orally; can increase phosphocreatine levels within the muscle fibres. By increasing the levels of available phosphocreatine in the muscle, you can increase the levels of ATP, Rush, Tullson, and Terjung (1998). This allows skeletal muscle to maintain a high level of explosive power during short duration high intensity exercise, Balsom et.al. (1995). Not only were phosphocreatine levels increased, but Balsom et.al. (1995) also found that lactic acid levels were reduced with creatine supplementation. Because of this it has been suggested that oral creatine supplementation speeds up the breakdown of phosphocreatine, thereby accelerating the production of ATP. Creatine is a substance that is found naturally within our bodies and forms part of the substance that is used as the predominant source of energy during the first 5-15 seconds of maximal intensity exercise. Although found throughout the body, the majority of creatine is stored within the skeletal muscle. Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP) is a key energy source that is used by the body to produce energy. Creatine or creatine phosphate plays an essential role in the restoration of this energy source (ATP).
