Product information.

Creatine is a substance that is found naturally in muscle cells. It helps your muscles produce energy during activity including high-intensity exercise. It is frequently used in sport to gain strength, but also used increasingly to reduced muscle wastage (sarcopenia) in the aging population.

Sarcopenia is the degenerative loss of skeletal muscle mass (0.5–1% loss per year after the age of 50), quality, and strength associated with aging. Creatine has therefore been recommended as a supplement for the aging population as well as active individuals seeking additional strength – with no side effects.

Function/ Used for

There are different types of creatine that you need to be aware of like creatine HCL, or creatine ethyl ester which does have the same degree of scientific research behind it like straight forward creatine monohydrate, which is the most commonly purchased type and is very effective. In fact, to get the same result with one teaspoon of creatine you would have to consume 1kg of raw steak making supplementation a no brainer and effective.

Here are 7 science-based benefits of creatine.

  • Helps Muscle Cells Produce More Energy.
  • Supports Many Other Functions in Muscles.
  • Improves High-Intensity Exercise Performance.
  • Speeds Up Muscle Growth.
  • May Help with Parkinson's Disease.
  • May Fight Other Neurological Diseases.
  • May Lower Blood Sugar Levels and Fight Diabetes.
  • Helps to reduce muscle wastage in old age.

Intake

Research has shown that eating 1000mg to 2000mg of daily naturally occurring creatine provides limited store of creative, whilst 

supplementation boosts creatine store by as much as 20 to 40% meaning saturation occurs more effectively by supplementation daily.

Take one tablet daily with water.

As a supplement

There are many supplements around that you question the cost and validity of whether it actually does anything. Creatine however is one of those supplements that is generally great value but also does what it says on the tin with over 700 humans studies investigating both its safety and validity. Although it can be subject to miss marketing by some, reputable companies like BioBrade  will sell you a product that is great value, safe and effective.

Found in (dietary sources)

Creatine in Foods. Creatine is most abundant in red meat, pork, poultry, and fish. There is much less indairy, eggs, and shellfish. Creatine is mostly in muscle meat; organ meats such as liver, heart, and kidney have very little. Creatine is most effective in raw meats, which is why supplementation is recommended.

Deficiency

Creatine deficiency syndrome is extremely rare.

Dietary Creatine for Vegans. Since vegans don't eat animal products, they can't get any creatine from normal diet. Studies have shown that while vegans and vegetarians have the same level of creatine stored in the brain, they have less stored in muscles

Precautions and contraindications

Precautions and contraindications

Use in pregnancy and breastfeeding

While the use of creatine in human pregnancy is yet to be fully evaluated, its long-term use in healthy adults appears to be safe.

Interactions e.g. with other medications

While most evidence shows that creatine does not harm the kidneys, taking creatine with other medications that can harm the kidneys might increase the chance of kidney damage.

Adverse effects

With over 700 human studies creatine has been found to be safe to use as recommended in safe doses.

Some claim it causes weight gain, cramping, digestive, liver or kidney problems. (1) However, a review of the evidence suggests these claims are not supported by research. (2)
