The Effects of Creatine Supplements on Your Body


The skeletal muscle component known as creatine is not only available as creatine supplement. Several other sources besides creatine supplement can benefit us with the effects of creatine. Firstly, creatine is produced naturally in the body through amino acid action, which occurs when food is processed.

Glycine, arginine and methionine acids work in combination within the liver and kidneys to produce creatine. If natural creatine levels need to be elevated for any reason it is possible to do so by taking a creatine supplement. Our food intake is another way to enjoy the full effects of creatine. Fish, meat and poultry all contain creatine.

When combining creatine supplement with the correct nutrition and exercise, the full muscle enhancing effects of creatine supplement can be seen. An intake of creatine supplement has been shown to increase the available muscle energy. Body cells store energy in a molecular form called Adenosine TriPhosphate, or ATP.

A creatine supplement aids these ATP activities. The amount of work achieved by the muscles is in direct relation to the amount of ATP available in storage. Taking a creatine supplement ensures smooth muscular function. By decreasing the regeneration time of ATP, creatine supplement can help sustain the force generated during an intense work out. Energy levels quickly rise when ATP is restored by creatine supplement. Readily available energy is released on demand by creatine supplement for extreme physical exertions.

The effects of creatine supplement are then felt as stamina is increased. Athletes working with weight lifting and sprint training benefit from creatine supplement due to this energy availability.

Greater physical endurance and increased peak power strength are the result of creatine supplement. Because creatine supplement creates a cellular environment conducive to improved muscle growth the effects of creatine are increased performance ability. Muscles are filled and hardened by creatine supplement and they stay pumped for longer, proving the effects of creatine.

The enhanced athletic performance, which occurs when taking creatine supplement therefore leads to greater, muscle mass and strength. The ability of creatine supplement to promote amino acid uptake and stimulate protein synthesis increases muscle strength and size. Strong muscle growth is enhanced and maintained through creatine supplements. Taking a creatine supplement can improve all physical abilities immensely.

The effects of creatine supplement are available to any athlete needing short bursts of intense energy. Because the capacity to train harder is increased by creatine supplement, the exhaustion point takes longer to reach.

A phosphocreatine depletion in type II muscle fiber can cause fatigue, which creatine supplement remedies by replenishing phosphocreatine. These effects of creatine means minimal exhaustion and an improved performance. Research on the effects of creatine suggests that creatine supplement may have a variety of other uses. Currently creatine supplement is being studied in relation to the neuromuscular system. The positive effects of creatine supplement may be found to have therapeutic applications in the field of brain pathology.

The regenerating abilities of creatine supplement could soon be utilized when treating muscular atrophy and other wasting syndromes. The ability and effects of creatine to protect the brain from neurological injury has been well documented. Components in creatine supplement help shield the human brain against neurotoxic agents and injury.
