What Is Creatine Monohydrate? Creatine monohydrate is one of the best and popular supplement used by athletes to increase lean muscle mass, strength and energy. The human body naturally makes creatine to provide energy to the muscles. Creatine is made within the liver, pancreas and kidneys and is transported to the body’s muscles through the bloodstream. Once it reaches the muscles, It’s converted into phosphocreatine (creatine phosphate). This high-powered metabolite is used to regenerate the muscles’ ultimate energy source, ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Creatine is 100% natural and is found in small amounts in some foods. Some foods that contain creatine are red meat, salmon, herring and tuna. The amount of creatine in these foods is minimal, and most (if not all) is lost when the food is cooked. The most efficient source of creatine monohydrate is creatine powders. These supplements are 99.9% pure creatine and just a small day-to-day dose is required to raise the creatine levels in muscle tissue. How Does Creatine Monohydrate Work? As mentioned above, when creatine monohydrate is taken it travels to the muscle cells by the use of the bloodstream. It’s then converted to creatine phosphate. Creatine phosphate’s role is to replenish the body’s reserves of ATP, the muscles’ ultimate energy source for short, explosive bursts of energy. Creatine loading: Creatine loading works saturating the muscles with creatine within the first 5-7 days and then maintaining the creatine levels within the following weeks. So within the first 5-7 days, 20g of creatine monohydrate is taken (4 x 5g servings) with a non-acidic fruit juice or dextrose. The dosage is then reduced to 5-10g per day taken post workout and before bed. Gradual approach: The gradual approach skips the loading phase and moves straight on to taking 5-10g per day. Either one of these methods have been proven to be effective, so it is down to personal preference.
