Updated on March 14, 2015

Creatine monohydrate

To help you determine if you should take creatine , this article will give you all the creatine information you need to make that decision. Creatine is an organic acid that occurs in humans and animals that helps supply energy to the muscle tissue. Creatine is created by your body from 3 amino acids that you get from eating meat. Creatine monohydrate has shown positive results in the treatment of several diseases as well as helping to build muscle and heal muscle tissue.

Can a Creatine monohydrate Help fight diseases

Because a creatine supplement increases the blood flow to your muscles and increases the hydration of your muscles, it makes the muscle fibers larger and stronger and helps them heal faster. There have been studies done on fibromyalgia, Arthritis, congestive heart failure, Parkinsons disease, muscular dystrophy, fibromyalgia, Als, and Huntingtons disease.

These studies have shown that creatine is very beneficial to many people with these ailments. The treatments have shown positive results in treating all of these ailments. Because they are all muscle or bone conditions, helping the muscles get stronger and bigger can have a positive effect on treating the disease. More studies need to be done, but it is encouraging.

A creatine supplement has also shown positive results in treating depression, bi polar disorder, and memory loss.


Benefits for athletes

Creatine will increase muscle mass, improve performance in exercise, and increase energy levels. It will also speed up recovery from heavy workouts, and makes muscle fibers bigger and stronger. It also has been shown to speed up fat loss. It will allow you to work out harder allowing you to get more work from your muscles before they fatigue.

Creatine is the most popular and effective supplement for athletes and weight lifters. It has never shown any side effects in any studies that have been done. It also is not banned by any sports organizations. It can not be banned because everyone has it in there body already. The best thing is, taking a creatine supplement really works.

How to take creatine

The recommended way to take a creatine supplement is to go through a loading stage to get your muscles full of creatine. Take 5 grams per dose, 4 times per day for 5 days. Then take 5 grams once a day for 4 weeks. After the 4 weeks, take 2 to 3 weeks off and start over. The off part of the cycle is to let it flush all out of your body. It seems to be more effective if you cycle that way.

Mix it with any non acidic drink. It has no taste so you can even take it with water and it's fine.

Who should not take creatine

It is not recommended to be taken by diabetics, or anyone with kidney or liver problems.  Or anyone under 18 years old.  Otherwise it can be taken by anyone else.

      You should definitely take it! I personally recommend against the overpriced creatines and say just go for the monohydrate powder.

      Cheap and effective!
