Creatine is a molecule that is produced in the body from amino acids.
It's primarily made in the liver but also in the kidneys and pancreas.
Creatine stores high-energy phosphate groups in the form of phosphocreatine. These phosphate groups are donated to ADP to regenerate it to ATP, the primary energy carrier in the body.
Creatine can be found in some animal-based foods and is most prevalent in meat and fish.
The primary benefit of creatine is an improvement in strength and power output during resistance exercise.
Anytime you have a muscle contraction, including pumping your blood, expanding your lungs, walking...there’s a chemical reaction that happens; APT (energy) changes to ADP (burned energy). Creatine takes ADP and transitions it back into ATP. Basically recycling energy, so your muscles have much more endurance and can make many more contractions! Creatine also holds water inside your muscle cells making them fuller, stronger and resistant to injury.
In the last ten years they’ve discovered creatine is also beneficial for brain function including memory, mood and cognitive function.
