1 ) What is Creatine?
Creatine is a non-essential – but highly recommended – dietary compound found abundantly in meat and fish. It is synthesized in the body, primarily in the liver, from the three amino acids, arginine, glycine, and methionine.
2 ) How does it work?
During high-intensity workouts, our body uses Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) as the source of energy. Creatine helps to regenerate these ATP stores and continue the supply of energy.
3 ) Why do I need Creatine?
Creatine is found naturally in meat and fish. If you are a vegetarian, you may be creatine deficient. Hence, Creatine supplements can help you have sufficient creatine stores to provide energy, reduce muscle cell damage and inflammation, and promote a complete recovery.
4 ) Do they have any side-effects?
Creatine is a natural amino acid and doesn’t have any side-effects when consumed as recommended. But drink at least 8 glasses of water every day when supplementing with creatine to ensure muscle hydration.
5 ) What is the best time to take Creatine?
Creatine can be loaded anytime in a day before workouts, post-workouts, with meals or while going to bed. Taking 5 g of creatine pre-workout and 5 g of protein immediately after a workout can be more effective.
6 ) Can I mix it with a protein shake?
Yes, creatine is unflavored and mixes instantly. So you can stir it with your protein shakes.
