What is Creatine?
Creatine is an amino acid (broken down protein) derived compound produced in the body that serves as the primary fuel source (ATP) for short duration, high-intensity activities such as sprinting and weight lifting. Creatine is stored primarily in muscle tissue, and it is used for rephosphorylating ADP into ATP. This means that when our muscles use up our energy stores, creatine helps to replenish those stores in a fairly rapid manner.  Approximately 2 grams of creatine are found in individuals that do not supplement and maintain a diet including animal based proteins.  Those who do supplement can increase their body’s internal creatine pool by 10 to 40% depending on diet and total lean muscle mass.

What are the benefits?
The ISSN (International Society of Sports Nutrition) position stand on creatine monohydrate (CM) found that short-term CM supplementation has been reported to improve maximal power/strength (5–15%), work performed during sets of maximal effort muscle contractions (5–15%), single-effort sprint performance (1–5%), and work performed during repetitive sprint performance (5–15%). Long-term CM supplementation appears to enhance the overall quality of training, leading to 5 to 15% greater gains in strength and performance.

Recommended dose:
5 grams daily immediately post workout. No loading period required.

Any side effects?
Although often cited creatine does not cause kidney damage or cramping. Users who take creatine will experience weight gain.  If this side effect is not desired but you still want the other performance enhancing properties of creatine decrease total daily consumption to 2.5 grams.

Directions:
As an adult dietary supplement, take one serving (6.6g) in 8 ounces of water immediately post-workout. A second serving may be consumed depending on activity level and/or body weight.
