Supplementing with creatine is crucial for anyone involved with strength training, power training, bodybuilding, weightlifting, or any endurance sports. On the surface, creatine has been studied/researched as an effective supplement to support lean muscle mass, boost performance, and promote strength gains. Athletes and high performance individuals choose creatine for its effectiveness during high-intensity training because the added energy and power boosts endurance and often is the catalyst for pushing out those all-important extra 1 or 2 reps.
Creatine is most abundant in red meat, poultry, pork, and fish. As such, most healthy adults have somewhere around 120 grams of creatine in our body at any given moment and we typically lose 2 to 3 grams per day through urine. Our bodies are constantly synthesizing creatine, but supplementing with creatine boosts the amount of creatine in our muscles, which helps support a heightened energy availability in our muscles and can promote increased power and performance during anaerobic training.
Creatine supplements often come in capsule, powder, and while loads of people swear by taking it pre-workout or post-workout, studies demonstrate it can be taken whenever and still provide benefits. There's also some evidence to suggest you can "load" creatine for the first 5 to 7 days to "saturate" your cells, but after that window, 3 to 5 grams is recommended for maintenance. ProSupps® carries top shelf creatine products like Creatine 300, which can help produce sizeable gains in muscle growth, strength, and athletic performance. Try it yourself and you won’t be disappointed.
