Creatine FAQ



Creatine is one of the most talked about supplements in bodybuilding to date, but what is it really?

Creatine is a nutrient naturally found in all our bodies. It is a combination of 3 amino acids; arginine, glycine and methionine. Creatine helps provide the energy our muscles need to move, particularly quick and explosive movements. Muscle contraction is initially fuelled by ATP (adenosine-triphosphate).


Basically, Creatine will assist in physical activity and increase water retention.


A dosage of 3g a day mixed into a glass of water or sugary drink is all you need, there are no studies at this time to support creatine being more effective if cycled.

On a personal note, I find my burns in the gym feel different when I'm taking creatine.
