Creatine–Why You Need To Be Taking It!

You’ve probably heard of it but might not know what it is.

Creatine is the most studied sports supplement on the market, and yet many people are afraid of taking it.

Creatine is chemical compound that’s stored in the skeletal muscles and used by the body during physical activity. It helps uphold a continuous supply of energy to working muscles.

Here’s why you should be taking it:
🔸It enhances muscle size and power output
🔹It will benefit’s the athlete’s aerobic capacity (increases the body’s glycogen levels by 53%). Creatine not only creates higher power output in athletes, but allows athletes to exercise for prolonged periods of time
🔸It has a positive impact on insulin sensitivity, glucose control, and cardiovascular health— This is especially true in people who have Type 2 diabetes. Diabetic athletes who regularly use creatine notice a significant improvement in glycemic control
🔹Using creatine regularly increases its concentration in the brain by 5-15%, which in turn improves reasoning and short term memory
